Color Your World

Today’s Soundtrack selection was also inspired by a commercial for Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse.  This should not be taken as an endorsement of Lowe’s, although Dusty and I do spend a great deal of time there.  We spend an equal amount of time at Home Depot and Menard’s.  We’re just into home improvement, I guess. 

Today’s song would be a great introduction to a unit on color theory.  The title of the song is Colors and it’s performed by April Smith and The Great Picture Show.  The commercial visually emphasizes the color theme.  However, you might want to select a video that plays the entire song.  Check out the lyrics below.

Very visually rich commercial.

You’ve been far away from me
another land across the sea
all this time my heart’s been breaking
just waiting round and aching

for a letter or a telegram
telling me how sweet i am
swear your heart will never roam
so til you come back home

I’ll wear your colors my dear
until you’re standing right here
next to the one who adores you
whose heart is beating for you
like a lighthouse guides a shipwrecked sailor safely from the sea
I’ll wear your colors til you come back home to me

I’m hoping you return the glow
I’m just making sure you know
that no matter how, no matter when
you come back to me again

you’ll realize this love is strong
as it has been all along
for miles and miles can’t come between
the kind of love we’ve seen

I’ll wear your colors my dear
until you’re standing right here
next to the one who adores you
whose heart is beating for you
like a lighthouse guides a shipwrecked sailor safely from the sea
I’ll wear your colors til you come back home to me

I’ll wear your colors my dear
until you’re standing right here
next to the one who adores you
whose heart is beating for you
like a lighthouse guides a shipwrecked sailor safely from the sea
I’ll wear your colors til you come back home to me
x2
I’ll wear your colors til you come back home to me
I’ll wear your colors til you come back home to me

Do you have other colorful song selections to add to the Soundtrack?  Feel free to share!
