"Learnin' the Blues" is a 1955 popular song by Dolores Vicki Silvers.

The best known version of the song was released by Frank Sinatra in 1955,[1] peaking at #1 on the Billboard charts. He re-recorded the song for his 1962 album, Sinatra-Basie.

Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong covered this song in their 1957 album Ella and Louis Again.

The song also was covered by Georgian artist Katie Melua on her debut album Call Off The Search (2003), Del McCoury on his 2001 album Del and the Boys, and Laura Dickinson on her debut album One For My Baby - To Frank Sinatra With Love (2014).

During the 2008 Grammy Awards, the evening began with Alicia Keys singing "Learnin' the Blues" alongside archival footage of Frank Sinatra, similar to Natalie Cole's "Unforgettable" duet with her deceased father Nat King Cole.
