Music Theme: Blue

Song titles featuring the color blue, in no particular order, with a video playlist that follows.

Of all the colors, “blue” appears to be the most popular to use in a song.

Note: I tend to try to use either the most original or most definitive version of a song, but in the case of the song “Blue Skies,” I’ve used a few different versions for this playlist, starting with Irving Berlin’s version.

Note 2: Because of the length of the list, I did not include song titles with the word “blues.” I’ll save that for a future theme. 🙂
