Love Is Blue

L'amour est bleu


The song originated in France, composed by André Popp, lyrics by Pierre Cour and first performed by Vicky Leandros in French in '67, the same year Mauriat performed it. Mauriat's version topped the American charts for 5 weeks in Feb - March '68. Brian Blackburn then translated the lyrics to English, and it has since been performed by several artists including Frank Sinatra

Love Is Blue  A Favorite song of Troutbirder from the 60’s.






 

 

 



Blue, blue, my world is blue
Blue is my world now I'm without you

 Gray, gray, my life is gray

 Cold is my heart since you went away

Red, red, my eyes are red

 Crying for you alone in my bed













 Green, green, my jealous heart

 I doubted you and now we're apart

When we met how the bright sun shone

 Then love died, now the rainbow is gone

 






Black, black, the nights I've known

 Longing for you so lost and alone

 Gone, gone, the love we knew

 Blue is my world now I'm without you.

Black, black, the nights I've known

 Longing for you so lost and alone

 Blue, blue, my world is blue

 Blue is my world now I'm without you

Looking out the window  this morning on the fresh snow,  I miss all my bird friends and hope this interminable winter ends soon......

  12. Seems like I remember that song from my childhood. At the time, I thought it was more suited for the elevator or doctors' waiting room (the kind of music my parents liked), but I'm beginning to appreciate that kind of music. I guess I'm mellowing out with age.
