If you have any kind of access to the internet, it’s pretty much impossible to not know it’s Black Friday. So, you know, spend your money or whatever. Or listen to today’s topically influenced music roundup – songs with colours in the title. I was going to do songs with the word black in the title, but then I realizes that I like a lot (a lot I cut out a good chunk of them for variety) of songs with Blue in the title. So, colours, not just black.
This list includes a little of everything – songs I know every word of, songs I used to play on repeat, songs that remind me of people, songs I don’t listen to anymore, and my if-I-absolutely-had-to-choose-one favourite song.
Blue Orchid – The White Stripes
Behind Blue Eyes – The Who
and let’s not forget when Giles became more than the stodgy watcher
Crimson & Clover – Tommy James and the Shondelles
Orange Crush – REM
Paint it Black (cover)- Gob (yes, the original is excellent, but this version was a huge part of my 20s so you get this version)
Band of Gold – Freda Payne
Counting Blue Cars – Dishwalla
Pink Houses – John Mellancamp
Blue – Angie Hart
White Room – Cream
There was totally going to be a Prince entry on this list, cause he has many excellent colour related songs, but he doesn’t allow his videos on the internet or some such nonsense, so he lost his place.
