Blue Moon
Last updated: 29.02.20
Blue Moon (1934) is a classic standard popular song (words: Lorenz Hart; music: Richard Rodgers) with numerous successful recordings by luminaries. These include Billy Eckstine, Mel Tormé, The Marcels, Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Elvis Presley, Sam Cooke, Ella Fitzgerald, The Platters, The Mavericks, Dean Martin, Yvonne De Carlo, The Supremes, Cyndi Lauper, Bob Dylan and Rod Stewart.
I got to sing the bass part of an SAB arrangement by Kurt Mass, which can be found in Chor aktuell junior, when a member of Das Trio sometime in 2007.
Only those with many musical interests could possibly confuse this song with fox-trot Blue Moon (1918) composed by Max Kortlander and Lee S. Roberts.
