- From the “Colors” Soundtrack album
“Colors” is a song by Ice-T, issued as the title track for the soundtrack to the film of the same name. The song was released as a single in 1988. In 2008, it was named the 19th greatest hip-hop song of all time by VH1. The song was covered by the groove metal band Machine Head, and released on the 1997 bonus disc version of their album The More Things Change.
This blog is all about respect, appreciation and love for all things 80s. Growing up in the “Decade of Excess”, music played a major role in my life. Many times, I found myself loving album tracks or singles that failed to crack the Billboard Top 40 lists each week. 30 years later, we have this blog (and my list of 1,960 singles) to rewind and share all of the songs that were released as singles, but failed to crack the Billboard Top 40.
