One of my favorite songs is "Super Blue" which I cover.
It's written by US Songwriter David Munyon.
This song reminds me on a very special decade in my life.
But as non-native speaker one question is left over.
What is the meaning of "Super Blue" in the lyrics' context.
Is he talking one of those 1950 Ford pickup Trucks in dark Blue?
Thanks for your help stay save and healthy.
But, he still keeps it shinin' like a diamond Here in 1994 And drives around listenin' for "Peggy Sue" But he don't hear it anymore Every now and then he leaves a little rubber But nothin' like he used to do And the kids all say who is that old man In that cool Super Blue SUPER BLUE... AH, SUPER BLUE

Ok. Listened. Cool song. Cool idea and cool music and feel. As a songwriter, man, he missed a great opportunity to give the hook “super blue” more than one meaning. He already had the really hard part figured out - what else Super Blue could be about - a truck. But he could have snuck in the literal meaning of the phrase in the story. He started to in the second verse when he introduced the girl - but then he went back to the original description of the truck. That chorus should be a metaphor that could work with both situations. “Super blue” the cool ass truck and “super blue” as in the guy was depressed because he lost the chick…just my opinion.
