'''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 delving from a happy tune, the vampire of the song kills himself in the end by exposing himself to the sun.

He claims that the first thing he thought about was a vampire, but he thought that it would be too cliché for a Jonathan Coulton song.
