I've enjoyed moderating the song of the month, how about a trivia question of the month? Here goes, we'll see if folks are into it:


I've come up with 11 songs that Django recorded with the name of a color in the title. Some of them are fairly obscure, but let's make that fair game here. By the way, let's also make it a rule that the name of the color cant be modified, ie. we cant include Limehouse "Blues". Join in if you wish, please no duplicates. Try to do it from off the top of your head if you want to make it more challenging. In a week, I'll post my 11 & we'll see which ones the forum posted, as well as any I may have missed. Have fun with it!

    And is that English titles? Or does Les Yeux Noirs count because it is a French color, where the English title would give the descriptive adjective "Dark".

    Nice Billy. I found a version of Dark Eyes that is listed as BLACK EYES on my cd, so that counts. 2 down, 9 (or more?) to go.

    I think he recorded an early version of Purple Haze too?

    Nice, Guitar Mike. You got 2 more of my original 11 (7 to go) + 2 I didnt think about. Fleche d'Or was well played. I'll admit that I had to look up the translation to see the color in the title.
