Continuing with our Color War, the next logical step is Red's more festive and well maintained counterpart, Pink.

The Pink team's captain is a mid 90s staple, gone wrong in Weezer. This band had a huge connection with myself and my peers during the single digit grades. In fact I used to go to Staten Island to watch my friend's band play Weezer cover songs in the basement of an Italian Restaurant. Then, the next thing you know, its the 2000's and Weezer is making Beverly Hills bullcrap for the masses. Lets rewind back to the Good Ol' days of 1996, when wearing glasses meant you would never get laid ever and a little album called Pinkerton came out. This song rocks out to the story of a guy who just might be barking up the wrong tree, if you know what I'm saying. I can't help but love the lyric in the middle "Everyone's a little queer, why can't she be a little straight?"

Other members include:
Pink (pop star), The Band (during their Big Pink Era), The Flaming Lips and Pink Floyd.

Song #233: Weezer - Pink Triangle

As a child, I always went to sleep away camp during the summer. One of my favorite parts of camp was Color War. For those of you whose parents didn't banish you to the Pocono's yearly, Color War is when the camp staff wakes up all the kids one day to inform them that most of their bunkmates are now their sworn enemies, based on laundry. The camp is then divided into teams, each one with it's own color, and these teams go on to battle each other in different activities and cheering contests to see which team and color is reigns supreme. 

I'm pretty sure no team I was ever on actually Won color war, but it was a good time nonetheless and it helped me get good use out of all my Yellow clothes. So during my short excursion, during which I hope to be far far away from computers for as long as possible, I thought I would set up a Color War of my own, EDAS Style. 

Beginning today, I will unveil each Color specific team, with it's Team Captain, and then maybe at the end, the team with the most positive comments wins.

The first color in the inaugural Every Day, Another Song Color war is... RED!

Seeing how it is Rasta Monday, the captain for the Red team is none other than the most famous reggae star of all time, Robert Nesta Marley.

Other members include:
Otis Redding, Redman, Redbone, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Red Red Meat and Red Fox.

Song #232: Bob Marley & The Wailers - Redder Than Red

All Around The World

Well, In a matter of hours i'm going to be flying half way across the world to Israel to learn about the culture there and also spread the word of Every Day, Another Song. Now I am hardly proficient in Hebrew, but the language of music is universal and I'm looking forward to an increase of visitors from the Middle East. Regardless of the fact that I know very little about contemporary Israeli Music, I am fairly certain that the contributions made by Biggie Smalls and our featured rapper, Nas, are appreciated even in the middle of the desert. I find it hard to believe that any people(s) would pass on this track.

Song #231: Nas - The World Is Yours
