[DAY 1] 30-Day Song Challenge

Guess who’s back. Back again. (Yes, I stole lyrics from a lyrically weak song as an opener to a post about songs. I told you. I’m out of material. Wordless.)

Since I haven’t quite figured out what to say and whether I want to say anything (which I must kinda wanna or I wouldn’t have hacked my own account to get back in just to say I’m wordless), I’ve decided to use a gimmick in hopes I can trick myself into having a compelling reason to post every day for a solid month. Those of you who know me know that this is still unlikely to work, but it’s worth a shot. And maybe, just maybe, this exercise will dredge up other non-gimmicky words.

I won’t hold my breath, for fear of accidental auto(un)erotic asphyxiation.

Without further ado, here lies the challenge:

Day 1: A song you like with a color in the title

This one is a no-brainer for me. It’s obviously Blue in Green. Miles Davis. I’m giving myself bonus points, because that’s clearly two colors. One in another. From an album with a color in the title. Kind of Blue.

Anyway. This is the only possible response I could have to the Day 1 prompt. For me, it conjures love, longing, the push/pull dance of two lovers becoming cautiously acquainted. At once shy and daring, blushing, pleading, the horn and the keys representative of two entangling souls. Please, do yourself a favor, and enjoy this melodious delight. Then, if so inclined, share with me your own personal colorful song.

  1. Blue in Green is a *fantastic* choice. So lovely. Trying not to say Blue (Da Ba Dee) by Eiffel 65…trying reaaaal hard. Yellow by Coldplay also feels like it’s too much on the nose. Let’s go Purple Rain, baby!

    1. I’m in a dodgy reception area, so I’m not sure my reply went through. 😂 I was trying to say we definitely have similar brains, but I’m gonna use my executive authority to veto all things Coldplay. Purple Rain, however, is a damn fine choice. But now, I’ll have Blue in my head. All. Damn. Day. Thanks a lot!


Lay it on me!
