Music Time – The Color of Music

Reprinted from May 4th, 2009


Time to get the brain going as we start off a new work week, so let’s play a game.


List songs, artists or bands that contain a color in it’s name.


For example:

  • Moody Blues (band name)
  • Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue (song title *bonus – 2 colors )
  • Barry White (artist)


You get the idea.


*if you’re not sure the name has already been listed, (edited) hit the cntl+F (command+F on Macs) to pull up the Find utility to see if it’s already been listed.  don’t worry about it and go ahead and list it.


Have Fun!
