"Billie's Blues" is a blues song written by jazz singer Billie Holiday, composing it just before being recorded in a session in 1936. According to the article in Melody Maker, 1 August 1936:
"Billie Holiday has her first solo recording at Brunswick last week...Bernie Hanighen,...suggested making a blues, so the blues it was". This blues was Billie's Blues.
