The phrase the blues is a reference to having a fit of the blue devils, meaning 'down' spirits, depression and sadness. An early reference to "the blues" can be found in George Colman's farce Blue devils, a farce in one act (1798) [1] . Later during the nineteenth century, the phrase was used as a euphemism for delirium tremens and also in reference to the police . Though usage of the phrase in African American music may be older, it has been attested to since 1912 in Memphis, Tennessee with W. C. Handy's "Memphis Blues". [2] [3] In lyrics the phrase is often used to describe a depressed mood. [4]
