'''Blue Sunny Day''' is a song on Jonathan Coulton's collection of unreleased tracks, [[The Aftermath]].
 
 
 
== History ==
 
'''Blue Sunny Day''' started as a happy song, with a refrain about a "blue, sunny day". Jonathan realized that ''blue'' could have multiple meanings, referring to either a day with a blue sky and lots of sun, or a sad, but sunny day. He wondered why a sunny day would make somebody sad. He claims that the first thing he thought about was a vampire, but he thought that it would be too cliche for a Jonathan Coulton song. So he thought that the song might be about somebody who had been in a relationship, and that the sun reminded him about the relationship, or something of the sort. But then he decided it should be about vampires after all. Further diverging from a happy tune, the vampire of the song kills himself in the end by exposing himself to the sun.
 
 
 
== Live Performance ==
 
"Blue Sunny Day" was debuted live at Park West in Chicago, on February 28, 2009, with just Jonathan and guitar. A link to a video of the performance is below.
