Pop Music

Golden oldies music certainly has its variety, and it includes the smooth singing of Bobby Vinton love songs, which includes his 1963 pop hit “Blue on Blue.” The song was written by Burt Bacharach (music) and Hal David (lyrics). “Blue on Blue” was written by Burt Bacharach (music) and Hal David (lyrics). The song tells of the pain and longing caused by breaking up with someone you once loved. Bobby Vinton recorded it in 1963, and it rose to #3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and #2 on the Easy Listening Chart.

Here are the lyrics to “Blue on Blue” by Bobby Vinton:

Blue on blue, heartache on heartache
Blue on blue now that we are through
Blue on blue, heartache on heartache
And I find I can’t get over losing you
I walk along the street we used to walk
Two by two, lovers pass
And as they’re passing by, I could die
‘Cause you’re not here with me

Now the trees are bare
There’s sadness in the air
And I’m as blue as I can be

Blue on blue, heartache on heartache
Blue on blue now that we are through
Blue on blue, heartache on heartache
And I find I can’t get over losing you

Night after lonely night, we meet in dreams
As I run to your side
You wait with open arms, open arms
That now are closed to me

Through a veil of tears
Your vision disappears
And I’m as blue as I can be

Blue on blue, heartache on heartache
Blue on blue now that we are through
Blue on blue, heartache on heartache
And I find I can’t get over losing you
Blue on blue, heartache on heartache
Blue on blue now that we are through
Blue on blue”
