Green rock songs! Green is the most soothing of colors and gets its fair share of lyrical space in pop and rock songs. Green is a soothing color, the shade of nature. Here are the top 20 rock songs recorded about the passionate calming color of green. 

1 - Velvet Green by Jethro Tull from the Songs from the Wood LP - the best of the green tunes. Walking on velvet green . . .

2 - Green Tambourine by the Lemon Pipers. A big psychedelic 60s hit.

3 - Green Eyed Lady by Sugarloaf, a great 70s hit that topped the FM radio charts for more than a few weeks (ask your dad; he'll tell you what a radio is).

4 - Green Eyes by Coldplay, another band obsessed with green peepers.

5 - Emerald Lies by Marillion (Many listeners used to think it was Emerald Eyes, but no.)

6 - Green Day by Green Day. Yes, of course. . .  an obvious choice. It's in their name!

Can we include Limelight by Rush? Wait, I don't think they meant "lime colored" light. So, no.

Those are the greenest songs we could find. The grass is always greener on the other side of B-flat.
