The Meaning of Blue Moon
A Blue Moon Tribute

Blue Moon

Have you ever wondered where that phrase, "Once in a Blue Moon" came from? Well, so did I. Turns out it has a history besides the song.

Astronomically speaking, a Blue Moon refers to the phenomenon of a second full moon occurring in a single month. This occurs on a regular schedule, but rarely, thus the phrase "Once in a Blue Moon" means it seldom happens.

This has prompted many companies to use "Blue Moon" in their name, as a symbol of excellence. They want to paint themselves as the best of the best, the type of company or product that comes along only "Once in a Blue Moon." I have included many logos and some information about some Blue Moon companies.

Musically speaking, a Blue Moon refers to a song that is an old stand by and has been covered by many artists. When people ask "Who sang the song, 'Blue Moon' " it would probably help to know how old they are, as it has been a hit song by many and is even used by the City of Manchester England as their football team's theme song.

"Blue Moon" was written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1934. I have included some of the more famous ones here, and a whole bunch of Blue Moon paraphernalia from merchants who use Blue Moon in their name or logo.

A Blue Moon, while not common, happens on a regular basis. They occur approximately 7 times in a 19 year period.Much less common is a Double Blue Moon (2 in one year). That only happens once in the same 19 year period. They occur in January and March, thanks to the short month, February. The last Double Blue Moon we saw was in 1999. The next will happen in 2018.

No Blue Moon of any kind will occur in the years 2016 or 2017. For a full Blue Moon Calendar, click here.

Music and Lyrics to Blue Moon
By Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart

 Luna The Full Moon Blue And Purple Space Geek Stamps
Blue Moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Blue Moon
You know just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for
And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper please adore me
And then I looked to the Moon it turned to gold.
Blue Moon
Now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own.
