"Blue Turns to Grey" is a song that was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. The song first appeared in February 1965 when both Dick and Dee Dee and The Mighty Avengers released versions of it. Another version was released shortly thereafter by Tracey Dey on Amy Records. It was released by The Rolling Stones on their 1965 album December's Children (And Everybody's) later that year.
It became a hit (peak #15) in the UK when remade by Cliff Richard and the Shadows in 1966 (b/w "Somebody Loses" (Tepper/Bennett), released 18 March 1966).
Don and the Goodtimes also recorded a version of this song, as did The Epics on Pye Records and the Flamin' Groovies on their 1978 album Flamin' Groovies Now!.
