I just thought of a dual purpose song for you Copago. It fits both the geography and color categories.

Blue Hawaii - Elvis Presley

I wonder if there are more songs like this...

No, "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White" was first performed by Perez Prado and His Orchestra, with Billy Regis on trumpet. It became a best seller in 1955. The Next year Alan Dale released a vocal version. tjoeb};>
