Red Makes a Bold Impression

Whatever red means to you, no one can deny that it's a color that makes a big bold impression. And unfortunately, the statement is not always positive.

I used to work for a Fortune 500 company that was revamping its recruiting website. The CEO ordained that the entire website be done in flaming red with only minor accents of white and black. He declared that red made a memorable impression. (Technically, he wasn't wrong.)

Doing a quick color association, however, his choice of color scheme was exactly the wrong choice. As much as red means strength and energy, it also means danger, fire, hostility, stop, devil, blood, fire, and sex/passion. Would that attract the right type of job applicants? (Add to the mix the fact that this was a tobacco company, and you really have a complicated recruiting message.) I suspect this may have been a case of "the emperor has no clothes" in that there was no executive who could persuasively disabuse him of his steadfast preference. Only after he retired was the flaming red website replaced with one that used the bold color in small doses.

If you love the color red and are curious about all the meanings it embraces, why not listen to a collection of songs with the color red in the title? Whether they refer to red cars, red dresses, balloons, flags, red wine, emotions, or rednecks, there's bound to be a pop, rock, country, or R&B song just for you! Make a playlist of "red" songs!

1. "Red Dress" by MAGIC!

Here's a man who is completely smitten with the woman in his life. The 2016 reggae-infused tune describes how he patiently waits before their date while she tries on everything in her closet. When she's finally done, she is breathtakingly gorgeous, and he can hardly concentrate on dinner. He can't wait to get home later:

I said, "Hey, you, with the red dress on
I gotta find a way to take it off
I got a lot of love and it's growing strong
When I see you with your red dress on."

2. "Little Red Corvette" by Prince

There will never be another Prince, and this 1983 international hit is from his glory days. Using car metaphors, the rock song describes a man's one-night stand with a captivating woman who has a penchant for casual sex.

The narrator feels intimidated by his partner's beauty and compares her to a stunning red Corvette that has had a number of previous drivers. Before he sets out to tame her "little red love machine," he cautions her about her lifestyle ("baby, you're much too fast" and "you need a love that gonna last"). Then he takes her for a spin, so to speak.

3. "The Lady in Red" by Chris de Burgh

The red dress sure did the trick for the woman in this 1986 love ballad, as she has the attention of not only her lover but also every man in the room. Her partner confesses "complete and utter love" as never before. He is so proud that every man is staring at the woman on his arm.

4. "Red Solo Cup" by Toby Keith

Leave it to Toby Keith to do a tribute to a red plastic cup, but do you dare call it a song, since it's actually spoken to country music? The 2011 tune celebrates the red disposable cup which is a staple at picnics, frat parties, and a variety of other lowbrow social occasions.

The red Solo cup is known for being able to write your name on it with a Sharpie and for being a key ingredient in drinking games such as beer pong and flip cup. Although the song claims it takes only 14 years to decompose, that's wrong by a long shot. Made of polystyrene (plastic), it takes between 50-100 years. So why not choose something less damaging to the environment?

5. "Red Lipstick" by Trey Songz

Red lipstick is what gets the guy in this 2010 R&B all hot and bothered. He asks his girl to please put it on so he can kiss it off her. Although he concentrates on the candy-like taste of her lipstick, he seems completely unaware that lipsticks often contain toxic and potentially cancer-causing ingredients such as methylparaben, propylparaben, retinyl palmitate, and tocopheryl acetate. Perhaps it's better to skip the lipstick? (Just because it's pretty doesn't mean it's good for you.)

6. "You're More Than a Number in My Little Red Book" by The Drifters

Back in the day, players kept the names of their many love interests in a little notebook and referred to it as a "little black book"—or in this case, a "little red book." The guy in this 1976 doo-wop/R&B wants one special lady to know she was more than a booty call. Although their love started as a one-night stand and the small town rumors are flying, our Romeo is trying to convince her that there's more to their relationship than that.

7. "Little Red Wagon" by Miranda Lambert

This may have been the type of behavior that ended Miranda Lambert's four-year marriage to Blake Shelton, but nobody's exactly saying. Full of sex appeal, this 2015 country song is narrated by a woman who is full of herself. She has swagger, is the center of attention, and has been sowing her wild oats.

8. "99 Red Balloons" by Nena

This anti-war protest song from 1983 tells the story of two young people setting 99 red balloons free. The mass of balloons is mistaken for UFOs, causing the military to send fighter jets to investigate and shoot them down in a show of force. The result is war and devastation.

9. "Red, White, and You" by Steven Tyler

In 2016, the longtime Aerosmith frontman decided to go country with this sexually charged song. Ignoring that he's 70 years old, the rock legend celebrates love (or something like it) in the Georgia sun as if he's a much younger man.

The grandpa is liking the girls in their cutoff jeans and urges his honey to peel them off. He also tells the woman he's with that he feels like he's "free fallin’ into your yum yum yum." Are you as icked out by this as I am?

10. "Red Red Wine" by UB40

The narrator in this 1983 reggae pop song is feeling blue over a lover and turns to red wine to help him forget her. Although Neil Diamond originally wrote and recorded the tune, it was UB40's cover version that became an international chart-topper. It also became their signature song.

11. "Red High Heels" by Kellie Pickler

There's more than one way to deal with a boyfriend who plays games with your heart. You can either sit around and worry about him or you can put on your red high heels and go stop traffic.

This sassy 2006 country song describes a woman's revenge. When she's had enough of her boyfriend's unreliability, she slips on her red high heels and taunts that she'll be calling that old boyfriend of hers. There's a breakup close at hand:

I'm about to show you just how missin' me feels
In my red high heels.

12. "Red Rag Top" by Tim McGraw

Feel the lump rise up in your throat as you listen to this touching 2002 country song. The narrator recalls being 20 years old and in love with his 18-year-old sweetheart.

I was out of a job and she was in school
Life was fast and the world was cruel
And we were young and wild,
We decided not to have the child
So we did what we did and we tried to forget
And we swore up and down there would be no regrets.

Regardless of their mutual promises to not look back, their relationship ended and he still looks back on the memory of his long lost love as bittersweet.

13. "Little Red Riding Hood" by Sam The Sham & The Pharaohs

Remember the big bad wolf from the Little Red Riding Hood fairytale? If you're like me, you probably recall that he was a hungry wolf. Wrong.

According to this 1966 rock ditty, he's following the girl because he's horny. He compliments her big eyes, full lips, and her overall appearance. The stalking wolf says he'd like to love her with his big heart, and he teases that maybe she'll see things his way before they get to grandma's house.

There are lots of similar creepy songs about obsessive love.

14. "I Saw Red" by Warrant

Imagine finding the love of your life. When you kiss them, you see your destiny. But wait. Here's the plot twist: You open up the door to your bedroom one afternoon, and BOOM! there your beloved is, caught red-handed with someone else. That's the situation that the crestfallen narrator in this 1990 rock ballad is faced with, and it leaves him angry, seeing red.

15. "Redneck Girl" by Bellamy Brothers

A whole lot of us are at least a little bit redneck. (Are you?) Whether you own up to it is another story.

This country classic from 1982 celebrates the beauty and unique femininity of redneck girls. They cruise around in pickup trucks, have calloused hands but soft hearts, and wear belt buckles with their names on them. This guy loves them so much he's hoping to find a purty one to marry.

16. "Like Red on a Rose" by Alan Jackson

The narrator in this 2006 country ballad shares a love with his sweetheart that is pure, simple, and deep—like red on a rose. He loves her in the sweetest and most basic of ways:

... I love you
Like all little children love pennies
And I love you 'cause
I know that I can't do anything wrong
You're where I belong
Like red on a rose.

17. "Wrapped in Red" by Kelly Clarkson

In this 2013 Christmas tune, the narrator confesses to a crush after years of pining away for someone special. She decides to risk it all by donning red and showing up on his doorstep, ready to pour out her feelings. Will she be rejected or will her love finally be returned?

18. "Red Right Hand" by Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds

This dark 1994 rock ditty describes a mystical male figure that represents the vengeful hand of God. It's a reference to John Milton's epic poem, "Paradise Lost." The catchy song describes the deceitful, malevolent figure this way:

He's a god, he's a man
He's a ghost, he's a guru
They're whispering his name
Through this disappearing land
But hidden in his coat
Is a red right hand.

19. "Seein' Red" by Dustin Lynch

The cowboy in this 2016 country song has red-colored glasses on. He says his partner colors up his world. As they paint the town red, he is mesmerized by his girlfriend's "red hot, red kiss" and her red lips.

20. "The Red" by Chevelle

This 2002 alternative metal song is about feeling threatened, marginalized, and labeled as a freak. The red anger seeps in and just might take over if not brought under control.

Research suggests that men find women who wear red more attractive and sexually appealing.  Men who wear red are perceived as more attractive, desirable, and powerful.  Wearing red tends to advertise one's sexual receptivity.

        Tamara - As much as I love purple there are only a few of them that are well known (e.g, Purple Rain, Purple People Eater, Purple Haze), and beyond that, you probably have to go way down into the weeds or combile it with shades of purple like lilac or lavender. That's a bummer because I like purple so much.

        I did not know there were so many songs with Red in them! Intriguing... I am wondering about Purple because it’s my favorite color... But, checking out all your songs makes me think Red might be a new favorite color, second to purple!

        Thank you for finding all these songs on so many diverse subjects. It’s fun to read, not to mention, fascinating!

        I hoped to run across one of these I didn't recognize, but you covered a great play list. Romance, fun, sadness - all can be found in these songs.

        I was reading your introduction and smiled. Tobacco execs seemed to have miss the red lighted end of public perception in many ways.

        Thanks for an interesting and fun article.

        Much respect and admiration,

        Now, This is a long, LONG list of songs with "Red" in the Title! Per usual, there are probably several more we're just not recalling at the moment. I've always liked to wear something red when I'm in an energetic mood.

        The other small memory that comes to my mind about "red" is that my Mom always worse pure red lipstick , no other color! It was the perfect compliment to her dark brown eyes, black hair and soft white skin. Fond memories. Peace, Paula

        Natalie - It takes me about a week to generate each playlist then write the article, depending on what else I have going on in my life. (With just coming back from a vacation to Peru and with my daughter going off to college soon, I've been a bit slower lately.) Usually, I have several playlists going on in parallel, however. Most of the songs I know, but sometimes I will find a good one through research or through a reader's suggestions that I've never heard of, and I enjoy that a lot. Thank you for the compliment! I've been enjoying your inspirational quote series.

You seem to have so much to say about the songs you include it's remarkable.

        I was trying to decide what I associate red with when I read your question. Definitely not Christmas... I'm odd and I prefer blue and white decor to red and green. Odd because green is my favorite color, mostly the darker greens like emerald. But red is my husband's favorite color so we used to have red everything in our kitchen. I wouldn't allow it in any other room. LOL. Too bold for me.

        The first song that came to mind was "Red Red Wine" and then others you have included. There's one somewhere in my mind that I can't quite recall ..like having a word on the tip of your tongue. Maybe it's just a lyric and not a title and that's why I can't quite pin it. If I think of it, I'll let you know.

        Annie - I appreciate your kind words. Over the last year in particular, HP has required a lot of my creative elements for playlists to be curbed. They don't like the maps with places that have names associated with whatever the playlist topic is, the photos (with or without quotes), or even extra information that is non-music but helpful or interesting to the user. It can be disconcerting, but I am glad you still enjoy the playlists. I hope you continue writing, whether for money or pleasure.

        Hi FlourishAnyway,

        You are amazing at creating articles that are very interesting, great job. I really like the way you create articles on music. Thank you very much for giving me my idea on a topic for the October article idea you gave me. It really helped. I don't write for money but for the pleasure of writing.

        I've always viewed Red as a hostile color but maybe that's why there are so many interpretations of it. My favorite on this list has to be Little Red Corvette, to me Prince was a musical genius. My guilty pleasure is Red, Red, Wine. It's so oddly catchy that I can't help but bop my head to it.

        Excellent list

        Yves - You're a lucky to be Latina, and I wouldn't worry about aging gracefully. Wear red as much as you want and love it.

        Whatever happened on your first comment, it was neither you or me. The powers that be at HP are messing around a whole lot behind the scenes with comments, Q&As and other things. They never communicate the changes in advance so how are we to know what the hell is going on? My red hot feelings are perking for various reasons on this issue.

        Thanks, Flourish. Yes, I am Latina on both sides, all the way. Ha! We're big on sexy red dresses, although my body doesn't look as sexy, or maybe not even sexy at all, the way it did back in the day. Suddenly, the hips are widening and things are drooping. Hahaha! But I'm entitled to relax, so it's all good. ;)

        I'm happy that you decided to write about red. The color brings back many happy memories from various aspects of my life.

        Linda - I already have a blue list, now a red list, so I guess a white list would be in my future at some point? The color red doesn't look good on everybody. My husband must have similar coloring as you because he should never wear bright red (although sometimes he does). I, on the other hand, love bright colors like red.

        Well...here I go again picking the Christmas song, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer because it's such a great song. The color red reminds me of 1) Latina lovers (we like wearing red dresses!), 2) Vigor and strength, 3) Christmas stockings.

        It's hard to pick one choice on your questionnaire, but I'll go back and do it now. Another fun list, once again, Flourish!

        Margie - Red really makes an impact. I'm sure I missed a bunch of songs about red, but I'll pick them up bit by bit as we go along. There really is a playlist about nearly everything. Have a great week. Hope something good, cold, and a little stronger than water is in your red solo cup this hot July week.

        Bill - It's normal to recall things you have intense feelings about, positive or negative. I guess that's why that popped up so quickly! Thanks for sharing. Have a great rest of your week.

        Linda - I guess why not? Red solo cups are the standard go-to for the party scene and for picnics. Unfortunately, they're filling up our landfills with forever waste -- that dreaded plastic. Thanks for stopping by. It's always interesting to get your perspective.

        Mary in the red shoes - I used to wear a whole lot of red and black, as it went well with my dark hair (just like yours). It sure makes you stand out in a crowd!

        When I saw "Little Red Wagon," I didn't think of the Miranda Lambert tune, but Willie Nelson's "Won't You Ride in My Little Red Wagon."

        Another fun and red hot list for the summer! Have a great one!

        This is an interesting and informative article, as always. I enjoyed learning about the symbolism associated with the color red. The idea of creating a tribute to a plastic cup sounds very strange!

        Red is my husband's favorite color! I never knew there were so many songs about red. "Red Solo Cup" too funny! Have a wonderful day girlfriend!

        Hello Flourish, I have two that I don't see on your list.

        1. "Red" by Cher.

        All I see is red, now

        Just can't dream nothing else

        All I see is red, now

        I'm drowning, no one can help

        Sirens through my head, everything you said

        Floating lost at sea with sharks around our bed

        Wish I heard the call when it was the end

        Warnings filled the air but it was too late to pretend

        We were living in black and white

        Under the grayest sky

        Since we've been over, it won't stop

        All I see is red, now

        Just can't dream nothing else

        All I see is red, now

        I'm drowning no one can help

        It's all around me.

        2. "Red, White and Blue" by Loretta Lynn.

        The Red comes from my grandpa

        He was an all American Brave

        The white comes from my grandma

        She was a redheaded Irish maid

        The Blue comes from the man I love

        Because I did before I said I do

        That makes me a mixed-up breed of

        Red, White and Blue.

        (You can see where Steven Tyler got his title: Red, White and You)

        Flourish, you've done it again. Who wouda thought there would be so many. Since we just celebrated the 4th of July may we expect a similar list of "white" and "blue" songs? (Just kidding).

        Red looks great on some people (my younger daughter, for example) but on me it just seems to accentuate my blazing cheeks as another hot flash sweeps through. I don't even have red in my garden.

        Thanks for another fun topic.

        #13 was my #1, which bothers me slightly since I hated that song by Sam the Sham. LOL Funny where the mind goes.

        Red is exhilirating. We looked around for a replacement to our sea-doo yesterday and we can't find red in the new editions so we can't seem to decide which is unusual. We love red as it perks us up. I don't think I have ever wore red. Red shoes is just about what I can do.
