Earworm: Blue MoonWednesday, November 03, 2010
Originally composed in 1934 by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, "Blue Moon" has become a classic and has been performed by a number of great musicians over the years. "Blue Moon" satisfies my moon obsession, that of course started with "It's Only a Paper Moon," and has all the right ingredients for an earworm.
Since hearing the song again in the game Fallout New Vegas, which contains amazing music by the way, I cannot seem to dislodge this song from my brain.
Belle Baker, 1935
Billie Holiday, 1950
The Marcels, 1961
Frank Sinatra, 1961
Blue moon, you saw me standin' alone
Without a dream in my heart, without a love of my own
