January 22-23, 2011 - fresh weekend COLORFUL SONGS knowledge

We continue our best themed songs this week with songs with colors in the title. I know a lot of you are going to be upset that your favorite song didn't make it, but there were a lot of songs to choose from and I wanted to get the most representative sample that I could...so, if you don't like it, well, make your own blog, jerk! Have a great weekend!

Prince - Purple Rain
Do I know what purple rain is, or why you would want to see someone bathing in it? Of course not, but one listen to this song and you will want to take a ride in Prince's Little Red Corvette while wearing a Raspberry Beret, and that's all you really need to know.

Michael Jackson - Black or White
Is it possible that Michael Jackson was amazingly self-aware and he realized the, uhhhh, oh, I don't know, slight irony of this song coming out at a time when it appeared that his skin was becoming increasingly white? Who cares, the song is an underrated King of Pop classic.

The Rolling Stones - Brown Sugar
Listen, I don't want to pretend to know exactly what this song is really about, but it's incredibly accurate. Brown sugar does taste soooooo good.

Coldplay - Yellow
This was the song, and the color, that put Coldplay on the map. I'm guessing it was about Gwyneth Paltrow's hair.

LeAnn Rimes - Blue
Did you know LeAnn Rimes was only 14 years old when she won a Grammy Award for Best New Artist with this song? More than a decade before she turned into the ultimate country homewrecker.

Kermit The Frog - It's Not Easy Being Green
Unfortunately for Mr. The Frog, not very many humans can sympathize with this ballad…unless they feel deathly ill.

Billy Idol - White Wedding
Why do I get the feeling when I hear this song that Billy Idol doesn't really feel like it's such a great day to have a white wedding?

Wiz Khalifa - Black & Yellow
Ahhhhhh! Tell me there is a way to get this song out of your head…or at least to stop thinking about a swarm of killer bees every time you hear it!

Aerosmith - Pink
There are so many choices for songs with color, but so few of them tackle the color pink with such ferocity, if at all. So, let us pay our respects to the newest American Idol judge.

Chris de Burgh - Lady In Red
You've never heard of this dude, but you've certainly heard of this song.
