Musical Musings: Colour Songs
I have no idea how my mind leapt to this conclusion the other day, but I found myself musing the number of songs with a colour in the title.
I came up with about ten just off the top of my head but I was curious to see just how many there actually are. It turns out there are a whole lot more of them out there.
Song Facts came up with a list of over 560 songs with a colour in the title. Over 560! Now I can’t verify if their list is current or includes every single song relevant so there could be a load more out there but that number certainly put my own mental list to shame.
Scrolling through their list I found quite a few of my favourites which I’m going to share with you today – as if I wouldn’t, there wouldn’t be much of a musical musing post otherwise, would there?
Black & Gold – Sam Sparro
Funky and danceable – plus I really dig the illuminated white shirts in the film clip – very cool!
White Knuckle Ride – Jamiroquai
Again, funky and danceable. It’s my all-time favourite band – need I say more?
Orange Crush – REM
I love the distinctive guitar riffs, the harmonies and the staccato beat that comes and goes throughout. A true classic.
What are your favourite songs featuring colours in the title? I know I could easily do another post…hit me with your faves!
