Blue Sunny Day is Jonathan Coulton's latest song, first premiered live at a show on 2/28/2009.


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.

Live Performance

"Blue Sunny Day" was debuted live at Park West in Chicago, on February 28, 2009, with just Jonathan and guitar. Further live infomation is unknown.


Blue Sunny Day became available for purchase on March 15, 2009 for the standard price of one dollar.
