"Goodbye Priscilla (Bye Bye Baby Blue)" is a song written by Deanna Summers, David Saxton and Ben Shaw. It was published by Silicon Music, BMI in 1977 and first recorded by Gene Summers that same year. The song was initially released by Tear Drop Records as a one-sided, promotional, single and later re-issued with "World Of Illusion" as the flip side (#TD 3405).

"Goodbye Priscilla" was written as a tribute to Elvis and Priscilla Presley. The "Goodbye Priscilla" 45 is now a much sought after collectible and has been issued on several Elvis "tribute" compilation albums and CDs. When "Goodbye Priscilla (Bye Bye Baby Blue)" was first released there was a controversy about which Priscilla it was written for - Priscilla Presley or Priscilla Davis who was a main character in the famous Cullen Davis Murder Trials. In his book "Blood Will Tell-The Murder Trials Of Cullen Davis" author Gary Cartwright credits the song ( page 199) as referring to Priscilla Davis. Not true. This song was written solely for Priscilla Presley as a tribute to Elvis.Fact|date=September 2008
