Melancholic doo-wap version, checking both Old-school and Romantics categories. If the song was written and first performed in 1934, Blue Moon by The Marcels became a hit in 1961, selling over a million copies. The popular lyrics Blue moon, you saw me standing alone, without a dream in my heart, without a love of my own are now a worldwide classic. An Elvis Presley version also exists, from 1956, as well as one released in 2004 by Rod Stewart and Eric Clapton.

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’r for
Someone I really could care for

And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper ‘Please adore me’
And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold!

Blue moon! Now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

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 prayer for
Someone I really could care for

And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper ‘Please adore me’
And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold!

Blue moon! Now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
