She Talks To Rainbows Part 5: Blue Is The Colour


Apologies for my absence...I have had house guests. I hope to get back to normal posting now. And so we move on to 'blue'. For the title for this one, I also considered Kind Of Blue (you may remember that my criterion is album titles containing the colour, but which do not also contain a song by the same name), but decided on simplicity and went with The Beautiful South.


This is a looooonnnnggggg list, so buckle up! I discounted songs with 'blues' in the title, as that would just have got ridiculous, but it's still a pretty mammoth one! However, given the popularity of this colour, I am sure that there are still gazillions that you can add :o)
