A song which names many different colors.

Often serves as a cheap excuse for Mood Lighting: for instance, when the singer sings that he's blue, he is surrounded by a blue spotlight or camera filter.

Examples of Colorful Song include:



  • "Sing A Rainbow" from Pete Kelly's Blues.


Western Animation

  • "The Green with Envy Blues" and "The Spectrum Song" from Disney's The Wonderful World of Color.
    • The version of the Spectrum Song featured on Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color features an additional bit:

 Ludwig Von Drake: Now, alright, we know that everybody don't have television sets with color, so... we're gonna do a version for them, we don't want you to feel left out of it. Here's for you...

Black black gray white gray gray gray white white white gray gray white, black.

Black black gray white gray gray gray white white gray gray gray black, black.

Alright, now you're happy? You don't feel left out? Now I wanna get back to my song.

Seven: Rainbow time!
One: Red!
Seven: My first block is the same as you.
Two: Orange!
Seven: My second block is the same as two.
Three: Yellow!
Seven: My third block is just like number three.
Four: Green!
Seven: My fourth block is green, as you can see! Blue for five. Indigo for six. Violet is for seven...oh, that's me! I've got seven rainbow-coloured blocks, that makes me unique.
