The votes are in.
Last week, with a soil-enriching voucher worth 25 crisp ones for Golden Discs on offer, I asked YOU to name your favorite song which mentions a specific colour.
You answered in your brightest, if seasonally appropriate, garb.
But there could be only one winner.
Spandau Ballet – Gold

Gold by Spandau Ballet: Not my personal favourite, but the favourite of a very good friend of mine. I remember at the time buying the CD for her here when I was on a break, and giving it to her when I returned. Where I was working (and where she lived) was at the time a little removed from standard trade and was basically a war zone. Her delight when she took the CD out of the envelope I had creatively wrapped it in (ok, I just put it in a standard Manila envelope) was wonderful. If I recall correctly it cost me about IR£15, but it was worth every penny to see her smile.

Joni Mitchell – Little Green
“Call her green and the winters cannot fade her
Call her green for the children who’ve made her
Little green, be a gypsy dancer.”
