Blue …oh, so lonesome for you …why can’t you be blue over me. Blue is the colour of heartache, of broken promises, of loss and grief. No singer mourns by singing the ‘yellows’ or the ‘oranges’; only by singing the blues. Lady Sings The Blues. Well, I never felt more like cryin’ all night ’cause everythin’s wrong, and nothin’ ain’t right Without you, you got me singin’ the blues. I’ll have a blue Christmas without you … White snow, crisp and delicious, always has a slightly blue tint as the sun starts to lower in the sky. A blue under-glow. Blue roses will blossom in the snow … Something borrowed, something blue … I loved that blue jacket, so snug, so warm. Blue mittens and blue scarf. Blue lips, so cold; teeth chattering. Wrapped up in your blue arms.

Blue moon, you saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own


Blue will be loyal, steadfast. But don’t irritate blue; he can also be cruelly dismissive. Technical deep free educated lovely peaceful classy clean formal cautious cold dignified faithful honest intelligent mature peaceful rational reliable serene sincere wet nostalgic sad isolated dull depressed.


I want to know how does it feel
Behind those eyes of blue
You’ve made your mistakes
And now your heart aches
Behind those eyes of blue

“The mutations responsible for blue eye colour most likely originate from the north-west part of the Black Sea region, where the great agricultural migration of the northern part of Europe took place in the Neolithic periods about 6,000 to 10,000 years ago,” […]” It is not known why blue eyes spread among the population of northern Europe and southern Russia. Explanations include the suggestions that the blue eye colour either offered some advantage in the long hours of daylight in the summer, or short hours of daylight in winter, or that the trait was deemed attractive and therefore advantageous in terms of sexual selection.”


“The sky blue damselfly, iridescent, flits across the blue lagoon”, blue skies smiling at me; nothing but blue skies, do I see.  “Blue flashes in my eyes … the retina is destroyed, though when the bleeding stops what is left of my sight might improve. I have to come to terms with sightlessness.” (Derek Jarman, Chroma) … “blue is darkness made visible.”


Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn; the sheep’s in the meadow, the cow’s in the corn …


Blue, the internet’s favourite colour, followed by red. Social-networking is dominated by blue. Blue for community. Blue because of colour-blindness. “Blue is the richest colour for me – I can see all of blue.” (Mark Zuckerberg) “Most colours distract and make the human eye focus on them while blue act as a transparent palette for 65% of time spending watching the main background aka index space. It is well known also that blue colour is the nirvana for the brain, as well green.” 


Lavender’s blue, dilly dilly, lavender’s green; When I am king, dilly, dilly, you shall be queen.


Lapis Lazuli, Vermeer’s blue headscarf, Impressionists dyed the rivers blue with their pigments, Renoir’s umbrellas, The Virgin’s mantle. Blue-berries are a strange fruit, sometimes too soft, sometimes a little bitter. Blue Birds twittering at Red Robbins. Yves Klein blue, ultramarine, thick and textured; bodies writhe, sprawl, roll, dragged through blue. Cezanne said of blue, ‘Blue gives other colours their vibration.’ “The blue work clothes of France. The blue overalls here in England, and the blue Levis that conquered the world.”


You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.


Ol’ blue eyes, caress and kiss me; you play upon my memory. Memory is blue. The tide laps around my ankles; blue is cold, blue is death. 


“I place a delphinium, Blue, upon your grave.”
