Help me cheat

I am engaged in a mini-competition with a few guys at work

The idea is to list as many album titles or single releases that have a colour in them
My current list of 30 (obvious) titles looks very poor compared to the 60 that someone else has.

The more obscure titles will allow me to be extremely smug when I “remember” them.
Do not lecture me I am on a low Moral Fibre diet.

Go to www.mp3.com.

In the search box, type “blue” and hit Search button.

On the next screen, click on the Albums link (I got 901…).

Memorize that list.

Hit the back button.

Click on the Songs link (27,158).

Memorize that list, too.

Repeat for “red”, “white,” “yellow,” etc.

Let us know how it works out.

“The White Album”! Bet nobody else comes up with that! :smiley:

I think you get the idea. Go to the website for any major online music retailer, and type in the artist’s name (Pinky Lee might be a good one to try). Type out the names of the albums, including the artist’s name as a part of the album names. Memorize them, as described above.

Just because you’re cheating, doesn’t mean you won’t be working hard.

Does “Colour My World” by Chicago count? Heck, I think you should get bonus points for that one.

singles:
“Blue Monday” by New Order
“White Room” by Cream
“Ruby Tuesday” by the Rolling Stones
“Paint It Black” by the Rolling Stones
“New Rose” by the Damned
“Bright Yellow Gun” by Throwing Muses
“Blue Christmas” by Elvis Presley

albums:
“Black Snake Diamond Role” by Robyn Hitchcock
“Black Candy” by Beat Happening
“Sunny Border Blue” by Kristin Hersh
“Gold” by Ryan Adams
“Under the Pink” by Tori Amos

and, of course, there’s a lot more if you can use just songs, not singles.

“Android” by Plaid.

Plaid’s a color, right? I’m part Scottish, so please tell me plaid is a color.

Maroon, by Barenaked Ladies

I got it!

EXTRA CREDIT!

Kermit the Frog - Rainbow Connection

The OP doesn’t say anything about the artist’s name having a color in it – only titles.

“Maxwell’s Silver Hammer,” Beatles

Okay, so how about
“Clear away in the morning” by Gordon Bok.

Clear is a color, right? I’m related to Phillip Glass, so please tell me clear is a color.

Black Coffee - Lacy J. Dalton

Silver Thunderbird - Jo Dee Messina
All The Gold in California - Larry Gatlin

Chocolate Cake(chocolate’s a color right?)- Crowded House

Crystal Blue Persuasion- Tommy James

The contest calls for, and I quote:

In my universe, the name of the atist is a part of the album title.

Of course, in my universe, the Supreme Being smites people who manufacture decaffeinated coffee and mild cheddar cheese, so take that for what it’s worth.

Green Tambourine by The Lemon Pipers.
Red, Red Redrum by the Dead Heanies.
Anything by Black Flag or Simply Red.
