How to use blues in a sentence?

  1. Vincent Van Gogh:

    At present I absolutely want to paint a starry sky. It often seems to me that night is still more richly coloured than the day; having hues of the most intense violets, blues and greens. If only you pay attention to it you will see that certain stars are lemon-yellow, others pink or a green, blue and forget-me-not brilliance. And without my expatiating on this theme it is obvious that putting little white dots on the blue-black is not enough to paint a starry sky.”

  2. Joe Biden:

    Perhaps no music has had as profound and powerful an impact in shaping America's musical score as Black music, for generations, Black music has conveyed the hopes and struggles of a resilient people -- spirituals mourning the original sin of slavery and later heralding freedom from bondage, hard truths told through jazz and the sounds of Motown during the civil rights movement, and hip-hop and rhythm and blues that remind us of the work that still lies ahead.

  3. Danny Turner:

  4. Duke Ellington:

    I merely took the energy it takes to pout and wrote some blues.

  5. Edgar Berger:

    Joe Cocker is a legendary artist of rock and blues history and yet he was one of the most humble men I've ever met, his iconic voice will forever be etched in our memories and our thoughts go out to Joe’s wife Pam and his family at this difficult time. Joe will live on in the hearts of millions of fans around the world.
