Musical Monday … Blue Moon

Musical Storytellers

Written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1934, “Blue Moon” was a popular song for decades.  Many singers included it in their performances.  I think you’ll enjoy the different presentations.  My favorite is Ella Fitzgerald’s but you absolutely must listen to the version by the Marcels.

The Boswell Sisters (1935)

Frank Sinatra

Ella Fitzgerald (my favorite!!!)

The Marcels (you gotta listen to this one!!)

Billy Holliday

Nat King Cole

Dean Martin

The Marcels (the old guys still have it and it’s worth listening to them again and watching them perform)
