About Blue Jean

"Blue Jean" is a song written and recorded by David Bowie for his sixteenth studio album Tonight. One of only two tracks on the album to be written entirely by Bowie, it was released as a single ahead of the album and charted within the Top 10 in the UK and the United States, peaking at No. 6 and No. 8, respectively. The song is loosely inspired by Eddie Cochran. Following the commercial success of Bowie's previous album, Let's Dance, its singles and the Serious Moonlight Tour, "Blue Jean" was launched with a 21-minute short film, Jazzin' for Blue Jean, directed by Julien Temple. The song performance segment from this was also used as a more conventional music video. The film won the 1985 Grammy Award for "Best Video, Short form", later renamed "Best Music Video", which proved to be the only competitive Grammy Award Bowie won during his lifetime for over three decades, although Bowie posthumously won four Grammies for his album Blackstar (2016)."Blue Jean" would remain in Bowie's live repertoire for the rest of his career, being performed on his Glass Spider Tour (1987), Sound+Vision Tour (1990) and A Reality Tour (2004).

Blue Jean, I just met me a girl named Blue Jean
Blue Jean, she got a camouflaged face and no money
Remember they always let you down when you need 'em
Oh, Blue Jean, is heaven any sweeter than Blue Jean?
She got a police bike
She got a turned-up nose

Sometimes I feel like (oh, the whole human race)
Jazzin' for Blue Jean (oh, and when my Blue Jean's blue)
Blue Jean can send me (oh, somebody send me)
Somebody send me (oh, somebody send me)

One day I'm gonna write a poem in a letter
One day I'm gonna get that faculty together
Remember that everybody has to wait in line
Blue Jean, look out world, you know I've got mine
She got Latin roots
She got everything

Sometimes I feel like (oh, the whole human race)
Jazzin' for Blue Jean (oh, and when my Blue Jean's blue)
Blue Jean can send me (oh, somebody send me)
Somebody send me (oh, somebody send me)

Sometimes I feel like (oh, the whole human race)
Jazzin' for Blue Jean (oh, and when my Blue Jean's blue)
Blue Jean can send me (oh, somebody send me)
Somebody send me (oh, somebody send me)

Somebody, somebody (oh, somebody send me)
Somebody send me (oh, somebody send me)
