"True Blue" as written by and Rod/wood Stewart....
I am a blueblood I will admit that. I dance in blue shoes and wear a blue hat. Live in a blue house on a blue street, in a blue town by a blue creek. I write my blue songs with m blue pen. I sing the blue notes to my blue friends. Now I don't know that much about you but I like you because you are true blue.

I had a blue dream about a blue star. In it I drove there in a blue car. And when I got there I met a blue dog with a blue tongue, we had real fun. We bounced a blue ball. It broke a blue glass. We banged on blue drums and called it bluegrass. I guess the thing I'm trying to tell you is that it is best kid if you're true blue.

Once I had gangrene. I had it real bad. And so the Doc came with his black bag. I said "You know doc, I don't feel well. If you had a blue bag I think I'd get well." So he came right back with a blue sack. He said "Will this do?" I said, "Why not? Yeah."
That is how I am here today to tell you that it is best man to be true blue.

Out on the blue sea I sailed a blue ship. I had a first mate that always had blue lips. His name was Bluebeard. He had a weird twitch. We flew a blue flag up on a big stick. And we ate bluegill and we ate blue chips. Oh, I felt real blue eating that blue fish. Because there ain't much that I won't do unless it keeps me from being true blue.

Once in a blue moon there is a blue sky. I wear blue jeans and fly my blue kite. It hangs like a bluebird until the wind dies and then the tears pour out of my blue eyes. If it is your birthday we'll bake a blue cake and then we'll eat it off my blue plates. Because kid I don't know much about you but I like you because you're true blue.

    General CommentHe wrote the song for his nephew but I think he's talking to all the fans. Many of his fans like Conor, but not for the art, not because they can feel what he's saying. He hates that since we really don't know "him", just his songs.

    "True Blue" means all the kids who really are blue, just like he was and really understand what he means when he's singing, and really relate and FEEL it in their hearts. That's who True Blue is really for.

    "Because kid I don't know much about you but I like you because you're true blue. "
    This basically describes a fan who he doesn't know, but he still loves him because they share the feelings expressed in the art of Bright Eyes.

    General CommentThis song was written strictly for his nephew. Conor didn't even think of releasing it when he wrote it. Matt (his brother) said that his son wanted Conor to write a song about the color blue, so he did. It was a birthday present. WHich makes the song even cuter if you ask me. It made Matt happy to.

    General CommentOe of the more positive songs ever written by Conor. I just kept help but smile when I hear it. I think any other song writer would have a hard time getting away with using the word "blue" so much, and rhyming his lyrics like this. But with Conor it's such a change, and his great writing ability shines through it all. I don't think there's any overbearing meaning, just that it's ok no matter who you are as long as you're true to yourself.

    General CommentI believe this is a statement of Conors political stance and personal beliefs. Obviosly blue has always been somewhat symbolic of liberal democratic political beliefs.

    I'm uncertain to the exact sybolism of each object or image. I want to think that the scenerio with the doctor is stating how he feels the democratic take on healthcare and medicine (ie stem-cell research, and medicare) is best. But, who knows. I do notice a reference to his vegitarianism. "I felt real blue eating that blue fish."

    A symbolic statement of beliefs or just a good song. I guess it depends on who is listening.

    General Commentif entierlykru is right thats the cutest thing ever. I found that the sound of bright eyes, on the two new LPs, is changing alot. The music to I woke up with this song in my head almost sounds like a bruce springsteen. But i like what i am hearing alot, can't wait till the full lengths come out!
