Just found this thread and I LOVE it. Is there any more? Is there really an Upper-middle Class Blues (which begins 'woke up this afternoon')?

Didn't see Gulf Cost Blues (Mildred Bailey)
or Match Box Blues (Blind Lemon J)

"Good grief. What's next, a thread about songs with the word "I" in the title?"

topical tom: This remark made by Lonesome EJ is exactly what can be characterized by "disturbing/destroying" a thread.

Obviously, this thread doesn't come up to his intellectual level so he decided to become destructive instead of ignoring your thread.

Don't be disappointed about EJ's comment which lacks of any humour.The majority of Mudcatters are highly constructive people.

Hi, Leadbelly. No, I've never heard of Howard Stith. I came to know 'Chicken Cordon Bleus' from a Steve Goodman LP. Dear Steve!

I'll look into Howard Stith.

Thought of another song:

Birth of the blues.

Has anybody mentioned 'Rhapsody in Blue'?

There were the Blue Sky Boys but I don't think they sang any blues. There was also the Blue Ridge Mountain Boys but with the same admission.

There are a number of Australian songs with the word "Bluey" in them...

And there is "The Blue Tail Fly" which was the nickname of my motorscooter long ago.

Cheerily,

This mention was because of the serious attempt to really feel the grief of early blues musicians.

By listening to all these blues you will become a smoker, topical tom! Apart from loads of gin which I forgot to mention.

Therefore, in order to prevent a young/er person from becoming a smoker and to loose his wife/woman it might be a better proposal to initiate a thread which you have had in mind: the most preferred blues song (and it's singer). Just do it!

By the way, it was not my intention to disturbe your actual thread. So let's go on, folks.

Omigawd, thanks for the warning, Leadbelly! I never was too good in math.Except for the cigarettes (non-smoker) the rest sounds good, though.I worry about the wife part, though.I really don't care much for polkas.

Dear topical tom, I think it will take much more than 100 years of lifetime to listen to all of these songs if you include all versions of artists singing the same song/blues.
So possibly you will need 140 years or above in total. (Don't know your actual age).
That's a lot of brandy, beer, cigarettes,electric energy and-above all-records and cd's. Think of your wife; she is going to leave home after 2 month (?), 6 month (?) or-when she's really in love with you- after 12 month with a boy who owns a small selection of polkas. I'm sure about this scenario.

GUEST,leeneia: Do you know the version of "Chicken Cordon Blues" by Howard Stith? It's great!

topical tom: There are thousands of songs with the word "blues" in the title. That's because artists singing the blues sometimes would like to give a hint to the people that this is a blues and not a polka, for example.

On the other hand, a nice question. Therefore, some other mentions:

Mr. Johnson's Blues - Lonnie Johnson
Falling Rain Blues - same
St. Louis Cyclone Blues - same
Live Saver Blues - same
Crowing Rooster Blues - same
Racketeer's Blues - same
East Coast Blues - Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry
Traveler's Blues - Lightnin' Hopkins
Penitentiary Blues - same
Racetrap Blues - same
Jackstropper Blues - same
Unsuccessful Blues -same
Jailhouse Blues - same
But: Lightnin' Boogie! - same

Something from a lady with a Band:

Old Time Blues - Edith Wilson with Johnny Dunn's Original Jazz Hounds
Nervous Blues - same
I don't want nobody Blues - same
Wicked Blues - same
The West Texas Blues - same
Birmingham Blues - same
Lonesome Mama Blues - same
Evil Blues - same
Pensacola Blues - same
Dixie Blues - same

And so on. Would take the whole night to go on, haha...
