An unusual take on this classic Burt Bacharach tune, more commonly heard sung by Sandie Shaw. This Swedish vocal group adds a musical phrase to the song which adds something to the atmosphere. The incredibly wide vocal range of the group is used to full effect. The result is a very appealing mixture of 60s pop and vocal jazz.
21 Sep 01 ·tempted: Check out the brand new debut album, "Melody a.m." by a Norwegian act called Royksopp. On the track "So Easy" they sample "Blue on Blue" recorded by the Gals&Pals and use it absolutely beautifully to create a haunting masterpiece. 03 Oct 01 ·delicado: cool; I love their 'blue on blue', and will check it out, thanks. 29 Oct 01 ·daedalia: yup, Royksopp did it well which is why i am at this page. Stunning album. 29 Oct 01 ·daedalia: forgot: does anyone know where i can get blue on blue, what album?? 29 Oct 01 ·delicado: 'blue on blue' is on the same album, 'Sing somethin for everyone'; I believe (although I'll have to check) that it's also on the inexpensive Swedish compilation of Gals and Pals, 'Guldkorn'. 15 Jun 02 ·masayo: Wow...I was moved. Much more impressed than Sandie Shaw's version. I want to listen to the whole track. 24 Mar 03 ·tuktman: Bobby Vinton has a version of Blue on Blue, i think it might be his song, just found a 30second clip of it, between gals and pals and royksopp it's been changed a bit 13 Oct 06 ·ashie259: There's also a 1963 Dutch-language version of Blue On Blue by Rob de Nijs called Stil Verdriet.
