Elvis Presley – Blue Moon

About The Song

“Blue Moon” is a classic ballad originally written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1934. Elvis Presley recorded a cover version of the song in 1956 for his debut album Elvis Presley.

Presley’s version of “Blue Moon” became one of his most iconic and enduring songs. He transforms the ballad into a rockabilly-influenced pop song, complete with his signature crooning vocal style.

It was recorded at RCA Studios in Nashville on January 19, 1956 during Presley’s first major recording session for RCA Records.

“Blue Moon” was released in March 1956 as the B-side to “Heartbreak Hotel,” which became Presley’s first #1 hit. It appears as track 2 on Elvis Presley, which was also Presley’s first #1 album.

The song features Presley’s vocals backed by his core band members – guitarist Scotty Moore, bassist Bill Black, and drummer D.J. Fontana.

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤

Blue moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my ownBlue moon
You knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care forBlue moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my ownBlue moon…
Without a love of my own
