LCD Series – Color

Last night half of the CD club showed up for our second exchange since inception. The theme for this CD was “Color/Colors.” Originally, I was going to go the rainbow route, but then a snarky comment made by a fellow club member inspired my ultimate choice of focusing on one color: Green. It is my favorite color and, one way or another, all of these songs lead me to green. Some are very direct connections that are obvious from the title, artist, or subject matter, while others are more emotive or convoluted in linkage.
