Three of a Kind #53

There were many, many songs I could have chosen for today's colour-themed Three of a Kind: Blue Savannah By Erasure, Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden, Natalie Cole's Pink Cadillac... something by Aqua or Blue; or perhaps Keith Harris and Orville's poignant take on the Irving Berlin classic White Christmas. Then there's always Aaliyah's Beige Ain't Nothing But A Number, Lionel Richie's Yellow (Is It Me You're Looking For?) and Reel 2 Real's I Like To Mauve It, to name but several. But in the end I decided to go for some tracks that don't make me want to slash my wrists whenever I hear them.

Ned's Atomic Dustbin - Grey Cell Green mp3
(Ingredients EP version)

Senile City - Indigo mp3
(quality Swedish melancholy pop from the 90s - not to be missed!)

Madness - Grey Day mp3

(mp3s available for a week)


Which songs would top your colour chart?

When we did a CD Swap thing for the contrast podcast earlier this year I made a colour-themed mix cd BUT I did it on the pooter at work so I can't rememember quite what was on it. Although it started with 'we are all colours' by Fever Marlene and ended with 'The Colours' by The Men They Couldn't Hang. I will look it up when I go in later this week and report back. Grey Day is brilliant.
