Themed Thursday: Colors

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 RedheadPink 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 UBlack 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: WilcoRed-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 BlackRed 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 LekmanBlack 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…

    the picture of the baby is obvious. if you look closely, you will see the baby is chewing on a yellow crayon. why else would there be yellow on its face?

    correction: the baby is sticking the crayon up its nose. sorry.

    The Vandal:
    How is the NOFX song baseball related? The title and the song references the Triple Rock club in Minneapolis, Minesota, if I’m not mistaken. That club is owned by Patty from Dillinger Four.

    how about a number themed thursday?
    or animals?
    or girls names?
    or “six degrees of kevin bacon, i mean thomas dolby”
    or songs with whistling?
    or everyone gives 2 songs, one thats a question and one that answers the question with hilarious results.
    you may thank me for these great suggestions using the moniker: jgrow.

    Both the word “double” and “triple” are baseball related words. “Baseball but better by Say anything has nothing to do with baseball- as with much of the titles and songs now adays. I was just sayiong how the title related– not trying to be technical at to what the title actually related to
