    Default Colors in songs

    I think this has been talked about before, but I'm not sure... Do
    any of you see colors in songs? Some Van Halen songs I see
    color in:

    It's About Time-Orange
    Why Can't This Be Love?-Green
    Mean Streets-Red
    Can't Stop Loving You-Silver


    It's so strange.

    If I saw this and didn't know what you meant, I'd think you're on some heavy drugs! But I do know what you mean. Weird thing to think grip, but it's there.

    Hear About It Later - Red
    Mine All Mine - Blue
    Can't Stop Lovin' You - Orange
    Humans Being - Black
    Cabo Wabo - Aqua Blue

    I see "blue" when I listen to Finish What Ya' Started for some reason, "black" for Human's Being, and "brown" for Unchained

    Default Colors in songs

    I've been thinking a lot about that too!
    But I think more about certain places AND colours when I hear a certain song;

    A.F.U (Naturally Wired) - I think about a certain room at the school I was in before (colour: pretty dark orange)

    Right Now - Think about a place in the Swedish alps lol (colour: Black and red)

    Jump - Think about when a was at my grandmas house and fishing (colour: white and green)

    Cabo Wabo - A park not for away from there I live (colour: Ocean blue, because I think the guitar sounds like that colour)

    For whole VH albums:

    Fair Warning has kinda brown but also green feel.

    5150 - Blue, blue, blue! Every song on that album is blue/ocean blue except for Dreams which is more red or pink.

    F.U.C.K - very dark colours on most of the songs, except Top of the world which is light blue.

    Hahaha the mental hospital next....

    Hagars "Red", I see red.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    I think the scientific term for this is "synesthesia". I've always had
    strong synesthetic experiences with music.
    Typically the (gtr) sounds I like come in shades of green and blue,
    with a little black and silver on stuff that is normally described as
    "heavy" or "metallic":

    VH1 - totally black and silver to me
    VH2 - blue and brown - dryer and less saturated than 1
    WCF - black, silvery green - like the hull of a battleship
    FW - Brown, blue, black, green, red - warm, woody, wiry, organic
    DD - brown, red
    84 - blue, brown, green - more textured than previous

    the Hagar stuff has more reds, yellows and browns in my mind.
    Maybe it's just the album covers...

    How now brown sound?

    When I've seen the title I though it was perticelli who started the topic. We had a discussion on it a while back

    I'll Wait is virgin white for me. Maybe because of that keyboard intro.

    You know what Mishar, that's exactly what I see during that song. But after the intro it goes from midnight blue to white off and on

    "Jump" has always been green for me.
    Never forget going into "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" the first time. Yellow all over.
    "Unchained" is a.. sharp? grey.
    "Panama" is a palm tree.

    The colors I see in songs are in direct relation with the album art. Always has been with me.

    If I hear Summer Nights or WCTBL, I see greens and yellows.
