About Blue Moon

"Blue Moon" is a classic popular song written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1934. It may be the first instance of the familiar "50s progression" in a popular song and has become a standard ballad. The song was a hit twice in 1949 with successful recordings in the U. S. by Billy Eckstine and Mel Tormé. In 1961, "Blue Moon" became an international number-one hit for the doo-wop group The Marcels, on the Billboard 100 chart and in the UK Singles chart. Over the years, "Blue Moon" has been covered by various artists, including versions by Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Elvis Presley, The Platters, The Mavericks, Dean Martin, Yvonne De Carlo, for Masterseal Reacords 1957, The Supremes, Cyndi Lauper, Bob Dylan and Rod Stewart. Bing Crosby included the song in a medley on his album On the Happy Side (1962). Cowboy Junkies recorded the song on their album The Trinity Sessions. It is also the anthem of English Football League club Crewe Alexandra and English Premier League football club Manchester City, who have both adapted the song slightly.

Blue moon 
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Blue moon 
You knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for 
Someone I really could care for

And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms could ever hold
I heard somebody whisper "Please adore me"
And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold

Blue moon 
Now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Blue moon 
Now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own, blue moon
