Quote: Why is blues music called "the blues"?

The name of this great American music probably originated with the 17th-century English expression "the blue devils," for the intense visual hallucinations that can accompany severe alcohol withdrawal.

Shortened over time to "the blues," it came to mean a state of agitation or depression. "Blue" was slang for "drunk" by the 1800s.

The link between "blue" and drinking is also indicated by "blue laws" that still prohibit Sunday alcohol sales in some states.

By the turn of the century, a couple's dance that involved slowly grinding the hips together called "the blues" or "the slow drag" was popular in Southern juke joints.

A rural juke would be jammed on weekends with couples getting their drink on, doing the pre-coital shuffle to the accompaniment of a "bluesman" on guitar.
