List Rules Songs with colors in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about colors as a subject.

You have to pick a pretty obscure color if you don't want to find a few songs about it. Between Coldplay's "Yellow," Madonna's "True Blue" and Prince's "Little Red Corvette," it's safe to say that almost every color has at least one song written about it. This is a ranked list of all songs about colors, as voted on by music fans like you. Some of the songs included below may have the words "red," "blue," "black," "white," or "pink" in the lyrics or title (among many more), while others are only about colors as a subject or theme. Virtually every color of the rainbow has music for it, so dig through the songs on this poll and find some you haven't already heard.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some colorful tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the colors songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more.
