How to Live an Aesthetic Life by Wearing, Eating, Traveling By, and Listening to Specific Colors for a Week


Step 7: Orange Day Music

Picture of Orange Day Music
While creating the Orange Day playlist -- which was lacking in its overall number of songs -- it occurred to us that a few bands who tend to name their songs after colors were going to be over represented in this experiment.

  • Agent Orange - Depeche Mode
  • Agent Orange - Tori Amos
  • Appels + Orange - The Smashing Pumpkins
  • Orange Blossom Special - Cash, Johnny
  • Orange Crush - R.E.M.
  • orange hexagon sun - Boards Of Canada
  • Orange Pony - Hilt
  • Orange Rolls, Angel's Spit - Sonic Youth
  • Orange Romeda - Boards Of Canada

I always thought Bach feels pretty orange, especially his Brandenburg concertoes. But people always start laughing whenever I suggest that some music associates very well with a specific colour...
Hey I'm with you. I tend to think of colors when I listen to music. I also tend to think of shapes when I'm trying to describe a flavor...We should just call it a sign of intelligence...!
O yes, flavor and shapes or textures... Great to hear of someone else thinking the same way! I think it actually has a name, this association thing (synesthesia, just found it on Wikipedia). But intelligence is also a good name, I'm sure :)
I once real an article about children who were associating colors with letters, for example, W would always be brown in their mind...I wonder if this is the same thing?
Thats actually a condition called synesthesia where one mental pathway activates another normally unrelated pathway.

XTC has a whole album called "Oranges & Lemons", I bet that would do!
