So theme for this thursday is a little more abstract. Previously we have done songs to listen to while doing something (singing in the shower, etc.) but this week we are going in a different direction. We each are posting a song, any song, that has a color somewhere in the title. These songs can be completely unrelated, but they share a common theme in that each song is colorful. Also, this theme gave me the excuse to post the above picture. Here are our selections for this week’s Themed Thursday, Colors.
Alex’s Pick: Blonde Redhead – Pink Love
I love me some Blonde Redhead. Love them vicious. I also love grammatically incorrect sentences. (Note: this song and artist features three colors! bonus points!)
Adrian’s Pick: Q And Not U – Black Plastic Bag
So many choices for this category, but since Q and Not U happens to be in it, they take the prize. This is one of my favorite, more fast-paced songs off of Different Damage.
Austin’s Pick: Wilco – Red-Eyed and Blue
This theme thursday was really fun for me. I didnt realize i had somany songs with colors in the title. I choose Red-Eyed and Blue by Wilco, because not only does it have TWO colors in the title, but it is a great song, and Wilco is one of my all time favorite bands. Okkervil River “Black” and “White Plains” by John Vanderslice were close, but Wilco is just too amazing to say no to.
Ryan’s Pick: New Black – Red Bandit
Here’s a band that I have been thinking deserves a little more attention (it isn’t that new but i wanted to post about them). From Chicago, New Black combines bad-assity with attention grabbing music. This isn’t the best song of theirs, but it’s a song with a color in the title.
Zack’s Pick: Jens Lekman – Black Cab
An absolutely incredible song + an underrated musician + the color black = the perfect Themed Thursday choice. This song is going to find it’s way onto an All Things Go Mixtape in the near future, but I thought I’d give those of you who haven’t yet listened to Jens a little taste of greatness. I also seriously considered The Shins “Pink Bullets” and “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt. 1” by the Flaming Lips, but i did that last week, and “Black Cab” is more incredibler.
Yet another stunning edition of Themed Thursday is in the books. Remember folks, we’re taking suggestions for themes, as we are fresh out of ideas. Until next week…
