Black Friday Special: Top 10 “Black” Titled Songs

Black Friday is here!   While you’re out spending lots of money, let me entertain you with a list of the Top 10 Songs with “Black” in the title.   I’m restricting the list to songs that have charted on the Top 40 or have become classics that have stood the test of time.

 

10. “BLACK GOLD” SOUL ASYLUM

9.    “BACK TO BLACK”    AMY WINEHOUSE

8. “FADE TO BLACK” METALLICA

7. “BLACK CAT” JANET JACKSON

6. “PAINT IT BLACK” THE ROLLING STONES

This is such a strong list, here is a honorable mention that didn’t make it.  Black or White – Michael Jackson, Black Balloon – Goo Goo Dolls and The Kills, Blue On Black – Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Black Water – Doobie Brothers, Welcome To The Black Parade – My Chemical Romance, Black Hole Sun – Soundgarden, Black Betty – Ram Jam, Black & Blue – Van Halen, Black Boys On Mopeds – Sinead O’Connor, Black & Yellow – Wiz Khalifa, Long Black Limousine – Elvis, and Woman In Black – Foreigner. Sorry but Rebecca Black‘s “Friday” didn’t qualify.

5. “BLACKBIRD” THE BEATLES

4. “BLACK DOG” LED ZEPELLIN

3. “BLACK MAGIC WOMAN” SANTANA or FLEETWOOD MAC (original)

2.   “BLACK”             PEARL JAM

  1. I knew the Amy Winehouse would be your favorite 🙂 I remember seeing Soul Asylum back in a bar in Minneapolis when they hadn’t hit it big yet. So that video was fun along with Janet’s Black Cat

  2. Back in Black is one of my favorites without a doubt but Amy Winehouse Back to Black is my #1! These are truly such great songs!! What a clever and fun blog!!! I love it!!!
