the next topic is ....Colour, there must be heaps of them....

Lady in Red- it's just popped out of my head who sang it, but I remember someone once saying that he was more of a poet than a songwriter.... (12 hours later... it was Chris DeBurgh)

You all kept the fires burning while I was away!

I don't see the classic.

"Brown is the color of my true love's hair"


And Superfurry! We're all celebrating for the new member's initiation...come on up son...I dub thee knight of the triviaforums!

Crimson King? King Crimson's song was "in the hall of the crimson king." I think.
