A Lyric Line Inspiration For A Song.


 I am always on YouTube looking at videos.  Music videos in particular.  

"What Colour Is The Wind" by Charlie Landsborough caught my eye or even ears the other day.  It's a song that  I hadn't heard for quite a long time.

Apparently Charlie was given Christmas presents like books and clothes and a friend gave him the following sentence to write a song: " What colour is the wind?"  It's something a blind child asks It's father. The giver of the song title said they couldn't do anything with it but perhaps Charlie could?

Charlie made the line into a song and became a recording and singing star in his fifties. 

I love the song and the child's imagination.  


So readers I have a question for you:  What colour is the wind?

  1. It is any colour you wish it to be. Just close your eyes and you will see it.

  2. Where do you get your knowledge JayCee? Do you talk to the wind? Wasn't the blind childs question profound?

  3. The colour of one's wind varies according to what we have eaten in the previous hours. I had a chicken biryani last Thursday night and the resulting wind was the colour of turmeric.

    3. I found 47 song wind titles YP care of Professor Google YP. Dust In The Wind by a certain Prog Rock band from Topeka is my favourite one of course.

  4. Why, I expect it changes colors! A gentle zephyr is perhaps a pastel color, much different from a blustery gale or a snowstorm, or a tornado. I expect actually that the wind comes in the same colors as a mood.

  5. Great thoughts Debby. Perhaps the winds colours are like the moons?

  6. Possibly very different for every person who thinks in colours - warm colours, cool colours, colours for speed and colours for laziness. If you told a blind child that the wind was red, how would they even know what that was? How would you describe red?

    1. Yes you're right Tigger's Mum how would you describe a colour to a blind person? Our eyes must be the most precious of our senses.

  7. The wind is every colour, depending on where it blows. The wind is a rainbow. I like Charlie Ladnsborough, though not all of his songs, I have two favourites on my playlist, "Lover's Chain" and "Love You Every Second".
