My Top Ten Color Songs

I’ve been meaning to do this list for a while but there are just SO many songs with colors in the title. I decided to not go overboard like when I did My Top Ten Devil & Hell Songs and spent ages making sure I hadn’t missed any favorites with “Devil” or “Hell” in the title. There are too many color songs (or colour in the UK – I wish autocorrect would stop correcting me) so I’ve not spent ages doing an exhaustive list and am sure I’ve missed a favorite that’ll have me kicking myself.

However, there are too many to narrow it down to only ten so I’ll count down from 20 to my favorite. And, okay – I have honorable mentions too. Sorry! πŸ˜‰ But I’ve still left out loads of songs. Would love to hear what other Color Songs are the favorites of fellow bloggers!

Here are My Top Ten Songs With Colors In The Title (based, of course, on how much I like the song):
