Top 10 songs featuring a colour

The first entry for the year is appropriately my first entry for the colour blog. The SDC and the Colour Experience will be talking to our local radio station Bradford Community Broadcasting (BCB) tomorrow at 12 noon to promote The Colour Experience Project.


As part of the show, we’ve been asked to give our top 10 favourite tracks, so of course we couldn’t miss this opportunity to pick songs with colour in the title. This has actually caused as much enthusiasm in the office as the broadcast itself, with much debate as to what should be included in the playlist. So much so that the SDC staff were willing to share their personal favourites, a selection of which are included below:

Anonymous 1:

  1. Purple Rain – Prince
  2. Certain Shade of Green – Incubus
  3. Paint It Black – Rolling Stones


Anonymous 2:

  1. 99 Red Balloons – Nena
  2. Blue Monday – New Order
  3. Ruby Through The Looking-Glass – Tori Amos


Anonymous 3:

  1. Profondo Rosso [remix] - Goblin
  2. In The Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson
  3. Evergreen - Mostly Autumn


Anonymous 4

  2. Green Gloves - Tha National
  3. Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, Pt 1 - The Flaming Lips

  2. Over The Rainbow - Eva Cassidy
  3. The Rose - Westlife

Anonymous 6

Once started, this game is additive! Why not add your selection in the comment box and the final BCB playlist will be posted tomorrow…
