Liner Notes: 

My third in a "color" series of songs. I kinda like this one. 60's pop

Lyrics: 

I saw you at the bus stop
Watched you get on board
I knew I had to try and catch your eye

So I hopped on and smiled at you
You blushed red, but I’ll be blue
If we’re not together, you and I

Be my Purple Passion Phantasy
You’re the perfect one for me
Violet, Plum, Lavender mulberry
How colorful the world will be

You think life is drab and gray
Wish a twister would whisk you away
Up to Oz, or some other land

I said “Just look all around
Bright sunshine can be found
Open your eyes and heart, take my hand”

Be my Purple Passion Phantasy
Flowers, music, love - all are free
Heliotrope Lilac Burgundy
How colorful the world will be

I’ll be your Purple Passion Phantasy
Your red, my blue in perfect harmony
Weaving a beautiful tapestry
How colorful the world will be



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

this falls somewhere between the indigenous psychedelia of the san francisco bands and the mainstream exploitation of the trend by studio bands in LA. in other words.... a wholly original re imaging of the period.

Nice groove and contrast between verse and chorus. Like the colour theme.

Very trippy music and a fun lyric -- did you leave out any shades of purple? I enjoyed listening to it all, guitar, beat, vocals, etc.

I kinda LOVE this one! What a great 60s feel! I can see you in high boots, purple mini skirt singing this on one of those TV variety shows in the 60s with a swirling back drop. This really captures an era. Great vibe and wonderful lyrics! Why do I suddenly feel like go-go dancing?

This made me feel like I was listening to Carly Simon, love the vocal on it, great rhythm, really like the instrumental break. Agree that it has a 60's feel, but in my world of songwriting, it is totally new age!! LOL! These color songs are great!
