/ Yesterday Once More / Music / Rainbow Colours


Against the backdrop of the LGBTIQ flag, (red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sunlight, green for nature, blue for harmony), this week’s songs feature colours that are either depicted in nature’s rainbows or in the gay pride banner. Billy Thorpe is dreaming beyond a rainbow, Rus Hamilton is wanting to buy a rainbow while others use colours to refer to a red car (Prince), green grass (Petula Clark), an indigo mood (Ella Fitzgerald), a yellow road (Elton John) and orange juice (Peter Sarstedt).
