In honor of Cherry Blossom Time we're bringing you - courtesy of Guest Gatekeeper Ben Sandifer - the top 5 songs that mention pink their titles!
1.Cherry Pink & Apple Blossom White
With both “cherry” and “pink” in the title, it’s an overwhelming choice for the top spot. This 1955 classic was the first song to reach #1 in the U.S. for a Cuban bandleader. No, not Desi Arnaz. We’re talking Perez Prado.
2. Pink Cadillac
This was originally on the flip side of “Dancing In The Dark” in 1984. Natalie Cole’s cover four years later reached the top ten in the U.S. and at least eight other countries.
3. Pink Houses
Written and recorded in 1984, this song was heard a lot during John Edwards’ 2004 campaign appearances with no problems. But when John McCain used it during his campaign rallies four years later, Mellencamp sent him a cease and desist letter.
The third major single off Aerosmith’s 1997 album “Nine Lives,” many of the lines in the verses begin with the word “pink.” The song is also very suggestive, but you’ll have to listen and judge for yourself.
5. Pink Panther Theme
Perhaps the most recognizable tenor sax riff of all time, it was first heard in the 1963 film “The Pink Panther.” It’s been used in every Pink Panther movie since, and in countless other films, TV shows and commercials. It earned composer Henry Mancini three Grammy's and an Oscar nomination.
