Song of the Day~ Am I Blue by Ray Charles

Am I Blue was originally written and composed by Harry Akst and Grant Clarke and performed in the Movie On with the Show by Ethel Waters, but has been covered by multiple different artists throughout the years.

Am I blue? Am I blue?
Ain’t these tears
In my eyes tellin’g you?

There are different styles in some of the covers with Eddie Cochran’s version in 1957 having a faster more upbeat feel. I’m fondest of the soulful feel of the Ray Charles version as well as the version that brought Am I Blue back into the spotlight as Ken Conroy sang the song as Batman in the Justice League cartoon
