Song Lyric Sunday – Blueberry Hill

This week’s Song Lyric Sunday prompt from Jim Adams, is Mountain/Hill. I knew immediately what I would share. Blueberry Hill by the great Fats Domino. It was written in back in1940 but is best remembered for this rock and roll version in the 1950s. Fats Domino died in 2017 at age 89.

This version reminds me of my brother who was 10 years older than me. He loved this song and I remember how he would play it constantly when I was a kid. Unfortunately he died suddenly in 2001 from a heart attack, but he had already made it known to the family that it was his wish to have it played at his funeral, and it was! So I’m thinking of you today Bob and sharing one of your favorites.

Lyrics - Blueberry Hill

I found my thrill
On Blueberry Hill
On Blueberry Hill
When I found you

The moon stood still
On Blueberry Hill
And lingered until
My dream came true

The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows you made
Were never to be

Though we're apart
You're part of me still
For you were my thrill
On Blueberry Hill

The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows you made
Were never to be

Though we're apart
You're part of me still
For you were my thrill
On Blueberry Hill

    The Number One hot of 1957.
    Fats Domino opened the door
    for many to follow.

    I smiled to myself while I was listening to this. I was reminded of when Fats passed away. I was living with my cousin at the time and told her. She had no clue who he was. Claims that she has never heard this song before in her life. I told her we could no longer be related. Everybody knows you find your thrills on Blueberry Hill!

    Christine, so sorry to hear your brother passed so young. I bet he’s on Blueberry Hill right now. Songs are receptacles for so many memories.
