Thread Name: Lyr Req/ADD: Blue Skies (Irving Berlin)
Subject: RE: Tune Req: blue skies nothing but blue skies
Willie Nelson recorded this and several other songs from the same era on his 'Stardust' album. Stardust, All of Me, The Sunny Side of The Street, Moonlight in Vermont to name a few. Apparently the record company thought he was nuts to release an album of these old songs. Willie's reply was the they were all #1 songs in their day, they should sell again. The album was a resounding success.
