Everything's Gone Green

I've been holding out on posting the next 'color themed playlist', hoping to tie it in with Spring. The weather here in Chicago has been cold and bleak, but finally it looks like we've turned the corner. Some random facts about green, in case you didn't know:

Green symbolizes eternity, harmony, posterity, and of course a link to nature and growth. It is the easiest color on the eye and can improve vision. It is a calming, refreshing color. People waiting to appear on TV sit in "green rooms" to relax. Hospitals often use green because it relaxes patients. Brides in the Middle Ages wore green to symbolize fertility. Dark green is masculine, conservative, and implies wealth. Green has also been known to bring bad luck;racing drivers generally avoid green cars.

Sometimes green denotes envy and a lack of experience; for example, a 'greenhorn' is a novice. Green has become a symbol of fate and randomness, both positive and negative. Gaming tables have been green since at least the eighteenth century. In some circumstances, green is associated with instability, uncertainty and ephemerality, be it in relation to love, hope, or youth.

Dark green is associated with ambition, greed, and jealousy.
Yellow-green can indicate sickness or cowardice.
Olive green is the traditional color of peace.

Please enjoy the following green playlist, which, by the way, would not be possible without the use of finetune, an excellent streaming audio site. As you may know, free streaming audio is in jeopardy. See one of my earlier posts and please consider learning about the issue and signing the petition at SaveNetRadio.
