TWQ: Songs With A Colour

This week, TWQ (The Weekend Question) asks you to select certain songs.

How many songs can you name that have a colour in them? The more obscure the better. You don't have to try and remember the artist (many are covered anyway). List as many as you wish.

My answers are:

Black Pudding Bertha - The Goodies

White Light/White Heat - Lou Reed (also by David Bowie)

Yellow River -Christie

Blue Christmas - Elvis Presley

and the very obscure..

The Green Manalishi (With The Twin Pronged Crown) - Fleetwood Mac

Now it's over to you...


Jon, Intergalactic Gladiator sent me this doodle below. It looks like Riker has been trying to sit in the Captain's chair again!

OMG, Green Manalishi!! What a classic, Jean Luc!

All I can think of is White Rabbit. Isn't that the Jefferson Airplane song that Sanctuary covered?

I'm totally drawing a blank. Me, the music lover.

Well, Michele sent me this time, so if I think of any more, I'll come back on my own and report in.

Ellee Seymour said...

Everyone has said mine too, so how about: "I'm dreaming of a White Christmas," but say "White Easter" instead.

I wanted to chill out over Easter, but not to this extreme.

Bilbo said...

"Red Rubber Ball," by The Cyrkle.
"Electric Blue," by Icehouse.
"Eyes of Misty Blue," by Cristy Lane.

The singer who did "99 Red Balloons" was Nena.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

I was just going to remind everybody that it was Nina who sang '99 Red Balloons' but Bilbo beat me to it.

You all are really going through the rainbow with these songs!

PI said...

Did anyone say 'Back to Black?' Can't believe I got anything that wasn't an oldie. Popped over from Michele's to see how ya doin'

Amanda said...

I thought I only knew 'Yellow Submarine' but now that I've read all the other comments....I realize I do know plenty but had just forgotten them.

Fergus sings the Blues - Deacon BLue (does that count?)
Forever eyes of Blue - Runrig
Forever in Blue Jeans - David Dundas (?)

I drew a blank when I first read the title of your post! Then when I read all the comments, I realised I do know quite a few songs!
*does a little dance*

Fab said...

From the edge of the deep green sea - The Cure
Rood (Red) - Marco Borsato (a Dutch singer)

I'm blank... no ideas, cause many already listed above. Does it count if it has colours in the lyrics eventhough not in the title? Cause then I know quite some...
