List of blues standards

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Sweet Home Chicago" performed at the White House with Barack Obama joining B.B. King on the chorus
"Sweet Home Chicago" performed at the White House with Barack Obama joining B.B. King on the chorus

Blues standards are blues songs that have attained a high level of recognition due to having been widely performed and recorded. They represent the best known and most interpreted blues songs that are seen as having permanent value.[1] Blues standards come from different eras and styles, such as ragtime-vaudeville, Delta and country blues, and urban styles from Chicago and the West Coast. Many are also performed in styles that differ from the originals and reflect various music trends, including rhythm and blues and rock.

Each song listed has been identified by five or more music writers as a blues standard. Nearly all have appeared on major music singles charts. Since many of the songs were developed in American folk music traditions,[1] spellings and titles may differ; the most common are used.
