Blue Moon

Elvis Presley Lyrics Words & Music by R. Rodgers / L. Hart Elvis Presley Lyrics

'Blue Moon' was originally recorded by Glen Gray and Casa Loma Orchestra with Kenny Sargent in 1934.

Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart first wrote the music together with different lyrics in 1933 for use in the film 'Hollywood Party' of 1934, where it was to be sung by Jean Harlow as 'Prayer', though the song was not used in the film. Shirley Ross used the tune when performing the song 'The Bad In Every Man' in the 1934 film 'Manhattan Melodrama.' After the film, Hart wrote the now familiar 'Blue Moon' lyrics and since then the song has been recorded by many artists, the first of whom were Glen Gray and Casa Loma with Kenny Sargent on 16 November 1934 for Decca.

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

Blue moon,
You knew just what I was there for.
You heard me saying a pray for
Someone I really could care for.

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

Blue moon...
Without a love of my own.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD Video with Sound.

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.

This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.

The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
