Friday random ten: Blue bayou, part 2

Oh God, is it Friday already? Thankfully I’m in the middle of a multi-list theme.

1. Blue Lou – Benny Carter
2. Blue Moon – The Marcels
3. Blue Moon Of Kentucky – Bill Monroe & His Bluegrass Boys
4. Blue Moon Revisited – Cowboy Junkies
5. Blue Morning, Blue Day – Foreigner
6. Blue Night – Mutual Admiration Society
7. Blue On Black – Kenny Wayne Shepherd
8. Blue Prelude – Asylum Street Spankers
9. Blue Rondo A La Turk – Dave Brubeck Quartet
10. Blue Shadows On The Trail – Syd Straw

“Blue Moon Revisited” is basically just “Blue Moon” at a slower tempo done in torch song style, but with a long intro. In that latter sense, it’s a bit like Patty Smith’s “Gloria”. “Blue Rondo A La Turk” is the first cut on Dave Brubeck’s iconic masterpiece Time Out (the one that features “Take Five”), and if you don’t know now what a compound time signature is, you will after you listen to it. “Blue Shadows On The Trail” is from Stay Awake, still the best and most eclectic collection of Disney music covers I know.
