Some bands sing about love. Some bands sing about colors. Some bands sing about both. Some bands use colors as metaphors to describe love. Some bands sing the blues but never mention colors. Some bands are red-hot live but average on album.
Here are the all-time Top 10 songs with a color in their title:
10. Rush - Red Barchetta
Song ebbs and flows like a Formula 1 race.
9. The Who - Blue, Red and Grey
Townshend lyrics at their best on deep, forgotten track.
8. Jimi Hendrix - Purple Haze
Got those amps up to 11?
7. Doobie Brothers - Black Water
Classic track from good-time '70s band.
6. Bob Dylan - Tangled up in Blue
Leading a master class in songwriting.
5. Sugarloaf - Green-Eyed Lady
Pop hit that is highly underrated and complex.
4. Allman Brothers - Blue Sky
Break out the Frisbee and crack open a Heineken.
3. AC/DC - Back in Black
One of the all-time great rock intros.
2. Neil Young - After the Gold Rush
There was a band playing in my head...
1. The Who - Behind Blue Eyes
Townsend lyrics, Daltrey delivery: Any questions?
