Blue Velvet is one of Anything Blue’s classics. Bluer than the night, softer than satin, play this song and it will soon become one of your favourites too.

.

‘”Blue Velvet” is a popular song written in 1950 by Bernie Wayne and Lee Morris.

Originally recorded and performed by Tony Bennett, who charted with it in 1951, it was remade four years later by the traditional R&B group, The Clovers. Many other artists have recorded the song, most notably, Bobby Vinton, and Lana Del Rey.’

‘Filmmaker David Lynch was inspired by the song, eventually writing and directing a film of the same name.’

“She wore blue velvet

Bluer than velvet was the night

Softer than satin was the light

From the stars

 

She wore blue velvet

Bluer than velvet were her eyes

Warmer than May her tender sighs

Love was ours

 

Ours a love I held tightly

Feeling the rapture grow

Like a flame burning brightly

But when she left, gone was the glow of

 

Blue velvet

But in my heart there’ll always be

Precious and warm, a memory

Through the years

And I still can see blue velvet

Through my tears”
