❄️ Blue Christmas ❄️

 

 

 

❄️Blue Christmas ❄️

I’ll have a Blue Christmas without you
I’ll be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
Won’t be the same dear, if you’re not here with me

And when those blue snowflakes start falling
That’s when those blue memories start calling
You’ll be doin’ all right, with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue blue blue Christmas

You’ll be doin’ all right, with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue Christmas

“Blue Christmas” is a Christmas song written in 1948 and famously performed by Elvis Presley, who made it a rock-and-roll holiday classic in 1957
It does not express the idea of a joyous Christmas: because the singer is missing his beloved and this generates a feeling of sadness.
In this tale of unrequited love, the typical “white Christmas” becomes “blue” because filled with gloom.
The woman who has left him won’t be so unhappy as he is, sulking around her tree, but she will be celebrating a traditional white and happy Christmas.
In spite of the melancholic content of the text, the music is rather cheerful.

The American rock band The Beach Boys recorded it in 1964; their version reached No. 3 on the US Christmas charts, but did not chart in the UK.

 

NATALE TRISTE

Passerò un Natale triste senza di te
sarò così triste solo pensando a te
le decorazioni rosse su di un albero di Natale verde
non saranno le stesse cara, se tu non sei qui con me

E quando quei fiocchi di neve triste e blu cominceranno a cadere
quello sarà il momento in cui i ricordi tristi cominceranno a risvegliarsi,
Tu starai bene nel tuo Natale tutto bianco
ma io passerò un Natale tristissimo

Tu starai bene nel tuo bianco Natale
ma io passerò un Natale tristissimo

(L.Z.)
