Colors for Songs?
« on: October 20, 2008, 11:19:59 PM »

Is it just me or do you guys see certain colors when you listen to a Beatles song? Like, when I listen to SOmething, I see blues and greys everywhere. And when I listen to I've Just Seen A Face, I see oranges and reds and yellows. And for Across The Universe, I see pinks and purples and reds and all of these colors. Someone tell me they experience this, too.

No. I'm not on anything.

Don't eat random mushrooms you find k?  ;)

I don't normally see colors when I listen to the songs HOWEVER, if I were to purposely think of colors while listening, I can imagine certain colors for certain songs.

sometimes i see colors, but more often than not, its an image, or little scene type thing that plays in my head. The wierd thing is, sometimes, i cant remember what the images are after the song is over, and i have to re-listen to it, and even then, if im thinking about it too much, i wont picture it. im just weird that way!

i always see whatevers happening in a song like a little play in my head.....usually these plays seem to be black and white, i dont know why though, since i love colors. maybe those are just the colors that i see, and it just happens to be for every song!

*sings* The hills are alive with the sight of music!

I kinda do remember colors and pictures better than words and numbers.
I just saw pink and yellow while listening to I Call Your Name...

I'm kinda like that, freakchic... seeing colours and all. For example No Reply is sort of grey for me and What Goes On is teal  :o ;D
But I also have some pretty weird associations when I listen to songs. For example, Eight Days a Week makes me think of a large orange telephone. Why (bigeyes1) And Yesterday makes me think of the colour yellow (maybe coz it's got a Y in it :-/ ...), or of a dark street corner with a dim street light. Yes. I'm very weird ;D

^ .... probably because I've been telling you about it too many times... Look what I've done ;D Originally that song used to remind you of John and Ringo, if I'm not mistaken.

... Why? And it's a telephone? Like, not orange markers? Just a phone?

When I see scenes for songs, they're usually in the colors I get. So like, with Mother Nature's Son, which is what I'm listening to, I'm getting greens and browns, but a scene. But the scene is in green and brown. I can't explain it well...

I always get pictures in my mind when I listen to songs, I mostly picture the story they are telling.  Epecially like Eleanor Rigby, I totally see her and Father McKenzie, Like I could describe them to you.  I am a very visual person though, even when I read books I alway envision what it is I am reading.

What? Pictures? I get normal colored, or what I believe to be normal colored, pictures when I read or write. But when I listen to music, I go off into color land...

Hmm.....  I'm not on drugs, but I see trippy rainbow colors when I listen to "Tomorrow Never Knows", and I see yellows, blues and greens during "Yellow Submarine."  (But that's probably because those colors are mentioned in the song!)
