When My Blue Moon Turns to Gold Again
Words & Music:
When my blue moon turns to gold again
When my rainbow turns the clouds away
When my blue moon turns to gold again
You'll be back within my arms to stay
When the memories that linger in our hearts
Memories that make my heart cold
However some day they'll live again sweetheart
And my blue moon again will turn to gold

A fabulous song from the fifties in which one really senses the spunky joy he radiated during those electrifying years. I vividly remember me buying the first two albums and how often those made it to the turning table. It is hard to define why the one is better than the other, but I chose for EP and runner up E (though every now and then my musical mood swings the other way around). Those early sessions were definitely 5+ stars to me and this jumping song is a classic example of those days.
First got a copy of this album from a junk shop minus the cover for five bob.Played it almost constantly for a year or so.This song as are all the recordings on the album sound different to anything Elvis ever did before or since.
This is such a marvelous, catchy, electrifying and fun song and my favorite rendition of it is Elvis' studio rendition from the "Elvis" album from 1956. Elvis' studio rendition of this gem should definitely be far better known than it actually is.
Love this song. Too bad the version on the Ed Sullivan Show back in the 1950's didn't include Scotty Moore's instrumental lead break. He started to play, but was cut off by Elvis coming back in too soon to continue singing. 1956 and 1957, the era of Elvis Presley, no questions asked.
It's all already been said here, an absolute 5 star classic with all the Elvis mannerisms and infectious exhuberance.
Too bad someone didn't look up the complete lyrics; now Elvis only sang the ones he knew. You can check out the original by the writers on Elvis and the originals vol. 2.
One of my favorites from the second LP Elvis. A true classic.
Its a great song from his second album, titled "ELVIS". However am I the only who thinks that, his first album, titled "ELVIS PRESLEY" was the better of the two first albums? "Old Shep" as pointed out, was the only weak track on the second album.
One of my favorite songs from one of my favorite, if not my favorite LP. Not a weak song in the bunch except Old Shep. Elvis showed all his styles on this LP and only 2 other LPs in his career did that, Elvis Is Back, and From Elvis In Memphis. This LP should get a second look by the public. I gave the extended CD to a friend a few years ago who didnt know much about Elvis except for the hits. It quickly became one of his favorites. I would never call the Little Richard songs second rate rock n roll. The songs are classics just as Blue Suede Shoes or Johnny B Goode. A pioneer.
As short, in length, as it was, I thought Elvis sang this, at his absolute best, on the "1968 Comeback special". He and Charlie did some nice harmony on the song.
One of my two favorite tracks from his second album (along with "Love Me") and a top 40 hit in the U.S. based on it's appearance on an extended play. A nice rockabilly tune and one of the last that would have some of that "Sun record" sound to it. The album was never a favorite LP of mine as there are some really weak tracks such as "Old Shep", "How Do You Think I Feel", "How's The World Treating You" and "First In Line" and some covers of 2nd rate rock and roll songs "Rip It Up", "Long Tall Sally" and "Ready Teady" although Elvis' renditions are the best of all the versions. "So Glad You're Mine" and "Anyplace Is Paradise" are interesting listens and "Paralyzed" (the other song to hit the chart from the above mentioned EP) is pleasant, but a weaker Otis Blackwell song.
This is my favourite Elvis period the 1950s. A track from the second HMV album if you were in the UK and part of a unique collection of songs that sound different to any other album Elvis made.
that's another real gem of my favourite if not best album from the 50's. The Sullivan show footage of it is fantastic. Unfortunately he used it as a halfhearted filler only during the 68 special, second(?) sitdown show...
One of my all time favourites from Elvis' second album, an album that i think was never surpassed.
Fun song from the fifties and i always enjoy the brief snippets he does in the seventies too. :)
What a catchy song, one of my favorites from my favorite LP with a great Scotty Moore solo. Classic.
