Subject: RE: colours by donovan
Well, 53, there are Donovan songs that only Donovan can sing - "Sunshine Superman" is a good example. Then there are some that seem to be good for anyone to sing, and "Colors" is one of those. It's a simple song, but it's close to being a classic. And yes, it brings back memories of a very rich, idealistic time of my life. At the time the song came out, I had been in a Catholic seminary for a few years, and was planning to be a lifelong celibate. Still, I didn't mind dreaming of yellow-haired true loves. That changed. I was married to one brunette for 20 years, and I'm soon to marry another.
