If you could make a box of crayons using only song titles, what would you choose? Below is a list of what I would put in my box of 24… songs that make great crayon colors.
My daughter and her fiancé just bought a house. They’re going nuts with paint colors. I know that excitement. When my family was living in Maryland, we rented a condo for 11 years. WHITE WALLS. I had enough of white walls after 11 years and I went color crazy when we moved back to Michigan. I had an orange kitchen and a yellow entryway. Every room was a color other than white.
Now our house is pretty neutral in color, but with my daughter’s living room being painted “Plumville,” it started me thinking about songs that make great crayon colors (or paint). My first thought was “Purple Haze.” I love this color name but I would probably not paint any rooms in my house purple. I would, however, want it in my crayon box.
I LOVE asking your opinions on social media. I recently asked, “What classic rock songs could also be a crayon color?” The answers were AMAZING.
People didn’t just answer with song titles that had a color in them (not that I don’t love those answers too). They got CREATIVE. One of my favorites was “Night Moves.” I would 100% paint a room in “Night Moves.” What I loved about this response was that it didn’t have a color word in it… it was more about the FEELS. I picture a smokey gray, personally, but it’s totally open to your interpretation. Here are some of my favorite responses.
