Young soldier in his early thirties, Justine Laurier did not doubt that his arrival at the head of Blue Moon, a private para-miliary society thwarts the plans of a group of unscrupulous individuals who are hiding behind the screen offered the "national security" and "state secrets" to enrich themselves with impunity in illegal activities where cash flows freely.

Blue Moon - Blue Moon of Kentucky - Netflix

“Blue Moon of Kentucky” is a waltz written in 1946 by bluegrass musician Bill Monroe and recorded by his band, the Blue Grass Boys. The song has since been recorded by many artists, including Elvis Presley. In 2003, the song was chosen to be added to the United States Library of Congress National Recording Registry.

The search for another song to release along with “That's All Right” at Sun Records in July 1954 led to “Blue Moon of Kentucky” via Bill Black. According to Scotty Moore:

Presley, Moore, and Black, with the encouragement of Sam Phillips, transformed Monroe's slow waltz, in 34 time, into an upbeat, blues-flavored tune in 44 time. After an early rendition of the song, Sun Records owner Sam Phillips exclaimed, “BOY, that's fine, that's fine. That's a POP song now!.” As with all of the Presley records issued by Sun, the artists were listed and stylized as “ELVIS PRESLEY SCOTTY and BILL”. The same night that Dewey Phillips first played the flip side of this first release of Presley's music on WHBQ, “That's All Right”, Sleepy Eye John at WHHM loosed “Blue Moon of Kentucky”. Bob Neal of WMPS played the record, too. The pop jockeys, entranced by something new, began slipping “That's All Right” and “Blue Moon of Kentucky” in among the easy-listening pop of Teresa Brewer, Nat Cole, Tony Bennett, and others. With Presley's version of Monroe's song consistently rated higher, both sides began to chart across the Southern United States. Billboard has the song listed only in Memphis, and as number six with “That's All Right” at number 7 on October 9 in the C&W Territorial Best Sellers. By October 23, “Blue Moon” was in the top 10 in Memphis, Nashville, and New Orleans, with “That's All Right” absent from the listings. Fellow Sun Records artist Charlie Feathers has often claimed that he came up with the arrangement of the song used by Presley. While others sources claimed that it was Presley who arranged the song. The song was later used in a scene of the 2005 TV miniseries Elvis.

We all of us knew we needed something...and things seemed hopeless after a while. Bill is the one who came up with “Blue Moon of Kentucky”...We're taking a little break and he starts beating on the bass and singing “Blue Moon of Kentucky”, mocking Bill Monroe, singing the high falsetto voice. Elvis joins in with him, starts playing and singing along with him.
