Some folks need 50 shades to get their satisfaction.
With the blues, you have only one shade. And that one shade can give you all the emotions you need... from sadness and empathy to joy and hope.
The blues is more than a feeling, and it's not just about being sad. “Feeling blue” is expressed in songs whose verses lament injustice or express longing for a better life and lost loves, jobs, and money. But blues is also a raucous dance music that celebrates pleasure and success. Central to the idea of blues performance is the concept that, by performing or listening to the blues, one is able to overcome sadness and lose the blues.
