Are there really so many songs about rainbows?

Asked by VanBantam (158 points ) October 5th, 2008

Ok people you’ve heard the song “Rainbow Connection” from our favorite green friend Kermit the Frog. The opening line is “Why are there so many songs about rainbows and what’s on the other side” This is the only song that I know of that is about rainbows. Could you all think of other rainbow songs?

@Breed; Good for you; ” On the day I was born,
Said my father, said he.
I’ve an an elegant legacy
Waitin’ for ye..”

That was the first broadway show I saw; my folks took me when I was thirteen; I still know all the lyrics to all the songs.

(Finian’s)

@uberbatman – I loved that show. This is only sort of related, but what about that color song from Disney:
“Red, yellow, green, red blue blue blue. red purple gren yellow orange red red.”
Apparently, it’s called “The Spectrum Song”.

@irockthe world; See answers #4 and #5 above. Welcome to Fluther, but it is a good idea to read the quips before duplicating earlier answers.

MRSHINYSHOES's avatar

The only song about rainbows I know is the one you mentioned “The Rainbow Connection”, but I love the version by Karen Carpenter.
