Every decade seems to have its own recorded breaking hit with a song about yellow. The Beatles recorded an anthem with "Yellow Submarine," then Elton John did it with "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," and Coldplay struck gold with their breakout hit, "Yellow." And the color for these hits is appropriate given their gold (and platinum) record status.
