If anyone has any ideas or suggestions on how to improve this game, myself and my coauthor, mck10, would be happy to listen!

Blue Moon, Don't It Make My brown Eyes Blue, and any number of songs from :-) Sesame Street!

Not the same year, but I kept trying Green Grow the Rushes for R.E.M.... How about All The World Is G
Oct 21st, 2009 at 01:12 GMT
...oops. All the World is Green - Tom Waits, Heart of Gold/Silver and Gold - Neil Young
Oct 25th, 2009 at 15:08 GMT
how about 'Bad Luck Blue Eyes Goodbye' by the Black Crowes
Oct 26th, 2009 at 03:59 GMT
Joni Mitchell also did songs called "Blue" and "Little Green."

Group the quiz by color. For example, the first set would be:
Red | Little Red Corvette | Prince (1983)
Red | Red Rubber Ball | The Cyrkle (1966)
Red | Red Rain | Peter Gabriel (1986)
Red | Red Red Wine | UB40 (1988)
Eliminate any title with two or more colors as it confuses things. On your Style page, change Group Answers with Same Hint to 3 columns. There's all kinds of song titles with colors, you don't have to be very obscure (e.g. Village Green Preservation Society - I have two albums of Kinks greatest hits and that song isn't on either one). Arrange the quiz, and I'll help you with additional answers if you need them. I think with just a little work this could be a front page quiz.

Thanks for the advice, i think that'll be a good format

Missing some ones I immediately thought of. Sugarloaf - Green-eyed Lady. Los Bravos - Black Is Black. The song Blue Hawaii, originally by Bing Crosby but made more famous by Elvis Presley. Speaking of Elvis, there's Blue Christmas. There's also Blue Moon, which has been sung by just about everyone.
Oct 26th, 2009 at 08:36 GMT
Some of these I had trouble with because I'm more familiar with the covers (ex. Santana and Michelle Branch instead of Joni Mitchell). I'm not sure if that makes it a better quiz or just too hard.

For You Blue by the Beatles and Green Grass and High Tides by The Outlaws
Oct 26th, 2009 at 15:08 GMT
you forgot black dog by led zeppelin
Oct 26th, 2009 at 23:05 GMT
Rockgolf, if you have any further ideas on non-obscure songs to include (and what to take off), we'd appreciate it!
Oct 31st, 2009 at 18:13 GMT
Aerosmith has a song called "Pink". and Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band has a song called "Blue on Black" which could go in two categories. AFI- Silver and Cold
Nov 2nd, 2009 at 03:34 GMT
Fun quiz! Just fyi, you left out the "l" in "Cyrkle."
Nov 2nd, 2009 at 18:39 GMT
Can't believe I forgot "Blackbird." D'oh! First "violet" song I thought of, actually, is Hole's "Violet."
Nov 4th, 2009 at 10:13 GMT
Black Magic Woman is originally by Fleetwood Mac, not Santana :) Other than that, very nice quiz!
Dec 4th, 2009 at 23:46 GMT
Good quiz. Another one for black could be Souls of Black by Testament.

for you blue (beatles), old brown shoe (beatles), blue moon (idk), bluebird (wings), i was gonna suggest subterranean homesick blues (dylan), shaman's blues (doors) and yer blues (beatles) but there are tons of blues songs. pink panther theme song (henry mancini?), mr. blue sky (elo), black water (doobie brothers), Lil' Red Riding Hood (Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs), Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter (Herman's Hermits), Infra-Red (Placebo), Baby's in Black (beatles), Supermassive Black Hole (muse), golden (fall out boy), golden slumbers (beatles)
Sep 29th, 2011 at 17:41 GMT
Ooh great idea and quiz!! And for songs I would suggest Cherry Red by Ida Maria and Back to Black by Amy Winehouse.
