More Colors... Plus Battle Results! And some questions...
I love a good challenge, don't you?
My brain is feeling a bit numb, so now I’m feeling a bit challenged about what I want today’s post to be. In honor of last week’s theme “Songs with Colors in the Title” I posted a little game on my personal Facebook page challenging people to name a song with a color in the title.
I had thought about using a few of these songs for a post today, but you know me... I love to be ‘Just a little bit different’. It’s what makes me unique. During this game I was playing on Facebook, I had a brainstorm. Today’s post was born out of this brainstorm.
“Bands with Colors in their Name”
I started to put together a list of bands or artists with colors in their name. I was surprised at how many I was able to dig up! Holy smokes there are really quite a few. Rather than do a very large list, I’m just going to limit my list to 10.
- Pink Floyd
- Black Sabbath
- Deep Purple
- Red Hot Chili Peppers
- Green Day
- Simply Red
- Blue Oyster Cult
- The White Stripes
- The Moody Blues
- Maroon 5
I’ve got a playlist for you with a song from each of these. What other bands or artists can you think of that have colors in their name? I’d love to see your list.
Wait! I almost forgot!
There’s more to today’s post. We have a small matter of business to finish up. Last week was Battle of the Bands, and the song was “Colour My World” I had not heard this particular song before, so it was like going in with a clean slate. I was really hoping to find a cover of Chicago’s “Colour My World” but couldn’t find a decent challenger. Perhaps one day…
The battle was back and forth at first, which gave me a lot of hope that this was a good battle, but it quickly turned into a one man (or woman in this case) show.

Thank you everyone that took a moment to cast your votes! I am thinking of returning to the the twice a month battles as many of my cohorts are doing, but I’m still not sure. What are your thoughts? Should I?… or should I stick with just one battle on the 15th of each month? Do you have an opinion on this?
And while I’ve got you thinking, and since I love a good challenge… I’ve got another multi-part question for you, my readers and followers. It’s nearing time for the annual A to Z Blogging Challenge. My question is this:
A) what music theme would you like to see me write about?
previous themes have been:
- A-Z Earworms
- A-Z Women in Music
- A-Z 70's Billboard Hits
1B) Should I follow the 6 day a week format used in the challenge
2B) once a week with a post covering all letters for that week
3B) two posts a week covering the letters for the designated time period?
I am open to any and all suggestions.
