Red

(aired 12/11/09)

balloon imageI’ve been collecting songs with colors in the titles for quite a while now, building a growing playlist in my iTunes. This week I collected ideas from other people for songs with the colors of red and green, inspired by the traditional holiday hues. I ended up with so many great potentials that I decided to focus on just one color for this show: red. Later I’ll find a chance to play the green songs, as well as all the other colors of the rainbow at some point.

By the way, I liked the song idea of “Red, Red Wine” by UB40, but I actually already got a chance to play it for my “Drink” themed show on October 4th.

Here are the passionate, blazing, bright, hot, rosy songs played today:

  1. 99 Luftballons – Nena [suggested by Ed Keller]
  2. Cherry Red – Calvin Owens
  3. Blue, Red, and Grey – The Who [suggested by Mark Mezadourian]
  4. They’re Red Hot – Red Hot Chili Peppers [suggested by Ed Keller, Stuart Finkel]
  5. Red Herring – Kris Delmhorst
  6. Big Red – Count Basie [suggested by Derek Keevil]
  7. Red Rain – Peter Gabriel [suggested by Jessica Mongolo]
  8. One Red Thread – Blind Pilot [suggested by Carrie Bader]
  9. Red Song – Jocelyn Pook
  10. Poppy-Red – Richard Thompson [suggested by Joshua Geesaman]
  11. Lady in Red – Madison Project [general song suggested by Abby Sipe Tammen, Stuart Finkel]
