The Chemical Brothers - Orange Wedge
Not one of my favorite Chem Bros. tracks, but yeah, limited options haha.

The term "domestic housewife" implies that there are feral housewives, and now I have a new goal.

"Oranges on Apple Trees" by A-ha

Some low-hanging fruit you somehow missed, Trollheart, although the first one you all but cut up and handed to me on a plate:-

Al Stewart instrumental, "Once An Orange", from the album of the same colour:-

Not fruit, and not memorable, is "Orange And Red Beams":-

To get lost is to learn the way.

Off we go again then. Easier this time, the colour is

"Green Eyes" by Nick Cave
"This Green and Pleasant Land" by Pendragon
"Fiddler's Green" by The Dubliners

My favorite Jethro Tull album, and one of my favorite songs on it.

In the UK, this was a total smash hit for Tom Jones in 1966:

Tom Jones is typically introduced as "Welsh singer, Tom Jones" and is famous for being the son of a coal miner (whether true or not, who cares). Anyway, I naturally assumed that he was singing about the green green grass of Wales, but learn from wiki that it's an American song:-

Quote"Green, Green Grass of Home", written by Claude "Curly" Putman Jr., and first recorded by singer Johnny Darrell in 1965, is a country song made popular by Porter Wagoner the same year, when it reached No. 4 on the Country chart.[2] It was also recorded by Bobby Bare and by Jerry Lee Lewis, who included it in his album Country Songs for City Folks (later re-issued as All Country). Tom Jones learned the song from Lewis' version and, in 1966, he had a worldwide No. 1 hit with it.

Congrats to songwriter Curly Putman Jr for writing lyrics with such international details; it can apply to any country where grass and oaktrees grow, or where girls are called Mary.

To get lost is to learn the way.
