Blue rock songs! Fun fact: more songs have been written about the color blue than any other color. Actually white edges blue out by a hair, but white isn't really a color. In that spirit, here are the top 20 rock songs recorded about the fabulous color of blue! We excluded songs about "the blues" as that doesn't really relate to the color.
1 - Baby Blue by Badfinger. The song (recorded in 1971) was immortalized recently in the series finale of the hit show Breaking Bad.
Good-by Blue Skies by Pink Floyd from the infamous LP: The Wall. Wait, there's no pink on this list!
2/tie - Blue Lamp by Stevie Nicks from the fabulous Heavy Metal Soundtrack ties for 2nd place in Blue Songs
3 - Blue Sued Shoes by Elvis Pressley
4 - Misty Blue by Dorothy Moore

*Again, we did not include any "blues" songs, as those don't relate to a color but to a style of music:
I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues by Elton John, Wedding Bell Blues by Laura Nyro, etc.
But it seems like there should be a song on here by Deep Purple. No? Blue Oyster Cult?
Be true blue.
