Sorry I haven't given attention to this blog lately but I just can't seem to shake the BLUES.

So here is something simple to keep my mind occupied and hopefully engage yours as well.

Help me list songs that have the word BLUE in the title. Oh, what the hell, lets just do one each of all the basic colors. No fair looking them up - this is brain power only! That means I get to start and do all the easy ones!

Blue Jean, by David Bowie
Paint it Black, by The Stones
Red, by Sammy Hagar
Green, I can't think of one!
Yellow Submarine,
by The Beatles
Brown Sugar, by the Stones
White Room, by Cream
Purple Haze, by Jimi Hendrix
Orange, (does Tangerine by Zeppelin count? I guess not huh?)

Blue, by David Gilmour
Black Velvet, by Pat Benetar
Red House, by Jimi Hendrix
Green Day, by Green Day
Yellow Sun, by The Raconteurs
Ballad of Hollis Brown, by Bob Dylan
Guilty of Being White, by Minor Threat
Can’t think of any other Purples besides Purple Haze
I’m also blanking on anything for Orange

Wow, it’s pretty tough to come up with these.

Believe it or not this is all off the top of my head (at least the songs are, on a couple I did have to look up who the artist was):

Behind Blue Eyes by The Who
Suite Judy Blue Eyes by Crosby Stills & Nash
Blue Never Looked Good On You by Bertie Higgins
Summertime Blues by Eddie Cochran
Devil With the Blue Dress On by Mitch Ryder
Suite Madame Blue by Styx
South California Purples by Chicago
Lady in Red by Chris DeBurgh
Bad Bad Leroy Brown by Jim Croce
Whiter Shade of Pale by Procol Harum
White Wedding by Billy Idol

And although they're not colour specific, how about-- Fancy Colours and/or Colour My World both by Chicago (and both songs are from their 2nd album).

Jeff, those are good ones. What about Purple Rain by Prince????? Lets add that one.

RAHIME! I didn't know you ever read over here, its good to see you. Great additions to the list!!

Guys, this is my friend Rahime (a very beautiful but married young lady). Her name is pronounced Ruh-may. It's a beautiful name.

Perplex, why does it not suprise me at all that you had all these to add? :)

Drugs are just bad, you should try to use Herbal Alternatives as a temporary replacement to loose the dependance!
