Hi Gang!

Ever been "down in the dumps?" Feelin' kinda sad? Melancholy maybe, Baby?

Wanta brighten up your day wif sum "blues" n' "All That Jazz?" (P.S. - CHICAGO is TERRIFIC !!! ).

This here lil medley is 'bout a dozen years old now, but my rather biased opinion thought it was kinda "catchy"
still, maybe even thought-provoking?

By now, y'all just KNOW I'm a "weirdo" with crazy ideas, right? But, do you ever just pick out one single, solitary, lonely WORD - and see how many ways you can USE it?

See what YOU think, OK? OH - just for a mental exercise, choose another color, like: RED ---> are the "juices" flowing yet?

ANOTHER thing: I picked the category of Architecture - WHY? Never thought about it before today, but aren't WE "Wanna-Be" authors really like Builders, or Designers, or Architects of - WORDS?

FINALLY: Would truly appreciate an answer to the question posed at the bottom hereof !!! Any "Legal Beagles" out there?

"Everything tastes better with BLUE Bonnet on it!" - Remember that one?



"Borrowed" and Blue


A Concocted Medley:


 


Roses are red, my love, violets are blue...
Bluer than blue, sadder than sad...



I found my thrill, on Blueberry Hill...
Devil in blue jeans...



If you knew Peggy Sue, then you know why I feel blue...
She wore Blue Velvet, bluer than velvet were her eyes...



I'm Mister Blue, when you say, you're sorry...
Nothin' but Bluebirds, from now on...



Three Cheers for the Red, White, and Blue...
Bell-Bottom Trousers, coats of navy blue...



They took the Blue from the Skies...
Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue...



My dreams will come true , On Blue Bayou...
I wanna hear it again, the Old Piano-Roll Blues...


Blue Moon of Kentucky, keep on shinin'...
It's Been a Blue, Blue Day...



Dreams come true , In Blue Hawaii...
When they play those Jelly-Roll Blues...



In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia...
Don't you step on my Blue Suede Shoes...



Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone...
I never felt more like Singin' the Blues...


- May 1, 1991 -



Question:


These are simply words taken from twenty-two
published song titles, and/or lyrics therefrom:
can my "arrangement" thereof be properly Copyrighted?


DUH ?

Blue is my favorite color, Tom; so I can relate. Nicely done. Love and peace to you,

Hi Tom,
just popped in..must be 'blue'. It's interesting how many titles, with a little creativity, can help an individual have a literal conversation without contemplation of any other process. It's similar to cliche's...which i adore.
i'm a huge sucker for 'blue'....my baby's got blue eyes...
thanks for the distraction into the pleasant.
hugs for the day

ps...the answers below are correct. a title is not copyrighted, unless the artist/writer..etc..has a hook that is off the mainstream mark, that makes it unique. the copyright has a limit..time wise. as all of the work does. if the work is left unattended after so many years..(and i believe it is after the artists death or release)then it can be picked up.
take care.

Yes, you can copyright your work. Titles of 'anything' cannot be copyrighted. Had the same problem with my book. Publisher said not to worry.[Clever boy you are...smiles]

All Kipp wants to do is explore the old mines. But when girl next door Jane enters the picture, his life becomes more complex, more frustrating, but far more interesting...
