Musical Monday ~ Songs With The Color Blue In The Title


largenotes

Welcome to Musical Monday! Music has been known to affect our emotions. Listening to music can make us happy or sad, relaxed or motivated, put us to sleep or make us want to dance. Music absolutely plucks at our heartstrings bringing to the surface a multitude of emotions.

Someone once described music to me as a time machine. When we listen it often transports us back to a place in time. A certain song can bring back feelings of someone we loved, our wedding day, someone who died, or any of the many important times in our lives.

Music has always been a big part of my life. When I am sad listening to a sad song often allows me to release that sadness. Happy songs tend to take away my sadness. It has helped motivate me to do housework. Yep, just crank up the radio or a music television station and I’m good to go. Warning: Be careful not to turn your music up too loud though. I have actually blown out the speakers in a television once doing this.

I have been known to start singing in a store when a song that I like comes on, I tend to sing along with songs while I am driving, and it isn’t unusual to see me moving to the music in my computer chair as I sit and listen to music.

This week I am posting songs with the word blue in the title . Please leave your favorite song with the word blue in the title in the comments below.

  1. My favorite Blue song was popular when I was a very little girl, it’s called “Love is Blue,” and it’s played by Paul Mauriat. My mother had the record, and I remember the cover had a lady on it with body paint. I remember being so shocked because she didn’t have any clothes on, lol.

    • Thanks for sharing : )

      “Love Is Blue”

      Blue, blue, my world is blue
      Blue is my world since I’m without you
      Gray, gray, my life is gray
      Cold is my heart since you went away

      Red, red, my eyes are red
      Crying for you alone in my bed
      Green, green, my jealous heart
      I doubted you and now we’re apart

      When we met how the bright sun shone
      Then love died, now the rainbow is gone

      Black, black, the nights I’ve known
      Longing for you so lost and alone
      Gone, gone, the love we knew
      Blue is my world now I’m without you.

      • Sorry, I assumed you knew she had Parkinsons. Yes, I saw that. Some are saying it is from alcohol. He had been suffering from years of abuse from that. I used to love him when I was about 9. I think that he was affected by the death of a fan, and injuries sustained by several others at a concert many years ago. It’s really sad and tragic, his dad was an alcoholic and died tragically in a house fire.
