I love these song-category-posts of yours! You have a super impressive list going on there but I can add one more: Red Angel Dragnet--The Clash. That's literally the only one I could think of that you didn't catch but I'll keep ya posted...

Divinyl said...

Nice one...I haven't even heard of that song (couple of Clash songs on my 'white' list though!). Y'see...that's what I wish for in a comment...gold star to you!

P.s. The 'orange' list will be considerably shorter! Already have it written out, but want to do at least one more prose-y post in between, if only to save people's eyes from getting too boggled!

Hey, glad to help...he he! Right on, I'm stoked to read the rest of the rainbow...You'll definitely have your work cut out for ya!

I just sang 99 red balloons earlier today!

For some reason it was stuck in my head.

It is a good song...I have the 12 inch single (such a geek!). The picture is of La Tomatina festival...looks like such good fun!
