And so here are some songs that have a bit of "blue"
Blue Eyes by Elton John ... one of my favourites
Blue Eyes is classified as a ballad (poems that tell a story).
It was first released by Elton John in 1982.
It reached No. 8 in the UK, No.12 on the Billboard Magazine Hot 100 and No.1 on the Adult Contemporary chart.

Blue Moon - Bobby Vinton. To keep to the "B" round, I chose Bobby Vinton's version.
Blue Moon was written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1934 and has become a standard ballad.
Several artists have recorded this song, including:
* Connee Boswell in 1935 for Brunswick Records
* Belle Barker in 1935
* Billie Holiday in 1950
* Bobby Vinton in 1963
* Bob Dylan in 1970
* Tony Bennett in 1973
* Vazelina Bilopphaggers, a Norwegian band in 1983 as Blå lys (Blue lights)
* Elkie Brooks in 1984
* Beady Eye in 2011 to support Manchester City's new football kit.

And to add an instrumental, here is
The Blue Danube by Mantovani and his Orchestra
The Blue Danube is the common English title of An der schönen blauen Donau (German for On the Beautiful Blue Danube). It was composed by Johann Strauss II in 1866.
It's one of my favourite waltzes.

I'm also linking this post to The Writers Post for the topic "The Blues". Not quite in keeping what the prompt had in mind but twisting the words a bit.
I hope your day is filled with blue skies and beautiful moments.
Best and Warm Regards
