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!

    @Mark’75

    I know what jingle your talking about. It was on a youtube video of hawaii t.v commercials that i postted awhile back here. I believe the commercials where from the same year that rodney graduatted? Can’t seem to find the video now to post it for you Mark. Man that was real small kid time for me. Memories flood in of shopping at holiday mart even as we speak.

  23. Mark'75 says:

    @Hbh: Holiday Mart! An old jingle popped into my head while looking at the photo: “Holiday Mart, Holiday Mart, shop at Holiday Mart, it’s smart!”

    @Seawalker

    Lol, in the 7.15 picture in the background you can see the see thru brickwall at the far end of holiday mart where the open air chinese food restaurant used to be? I have for some reason always liked that design and found it to be prominently used in the islands. Anyway back on topic. I just thought those of MLC Hawaii would appreciate the pictures since there isn’t alot on Holiday Mart.
