Ranking the best songs about green wasn't an easy job, with so many great tunes to choose from. From New Order to Bey, everyone seems to have something to say about the color. Keep in mind as you rank your favorites, we focused just on the color, rather than green songs as a symbol for the earth, weed or benjamins. Those are their own lists entirely. These songs all have green in the title or lyrics, so vote up your favorites and add any we missed.

It would do Jim Henson (and this compilation) a grave injustice not to start the best green songs list off without "(It ain't easy) Bein' Green" as sung by the frog who needs no introduction, Kermit. Coming in after that is a tough call, with the hammering "Green River" by Creedence Clearwater Revival, the ever-popular "Green Onion" by Booker T. and the MG's and the oh-so English The Kinks with "The Village Green Preservation Society."

Thumbs up or down the best green songs below, and be sure to chime in with your favorites in the comment section.
