Basic Black

artist's palette

Color harmonies and color theory are concepts that come up in several FACS content areas.  Whether you teach interior design, fashion design, textiles and apparel or even culinary arts, you’ll be able to use a color-themed song.  Today, I’ve chosen Paint It Black by the Rolling Stones as our FACS Soundtrack Project selection.  However, there are lots of other songs with a color theme.  Two others suggested by reader Paige are Big Green Tractor and Purple Rain.  Thanks for sharing, Paige!

Here’s a challenge for today!  Let’s try to complete the color wheel (primary and secondary colors only, of course) with FACS-related song titles!  We need songs to represent white, red, yellow, blue, and orange.   Ideas?

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars and they’re all painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a new born baby it just happens every day

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and must have it painted black
Maybe then I’ll fade away and not have to face the facts
It’s not easy facin’ up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you

If I look hard enough into the settin’ sun
My love will laugh with me before the mornin’ comes

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls go by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

Hmm, hmm, hmm,…

I wanna see it tainted, tainted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it tainted, tainted, tainted, tainted black
Yeah!

Hmm, hmm, hmm,…

Happy Tuesday, Everyone!
