Colors of the Rainbow

Introduction:That's right, it's finally time to step into something greater than all of us, a top five list with subject matter too delicate for our feeble hands to grasp. The visual representation of the true beauty that lives within life. The rainbow. All the colors are integral to the memorizing spectrum spectacle but which ones resonates the most with me that, helping creatic that euphoric release we call a rainbow. Join me, as I list the greatest parts of the greatest sum.

  • 01

    Green

    This color has been a personal favorite of mine since birth and why wouldn't it be. It is the color of nature and just as important, the color of money (at least, bills). It's a color that stands a top for several noble causes such as recycling because it is the color of hope. The association it has with jealousy is misplace, green does not experience envy. It stands proudly in the middle of the rainbow, the connecting force of the rainbow. It's true though, that it isn't easy being green because only green shoulder the responsibility of green.

    Red

    Red is color that's always stood out to me. Red is brimming with passion and there isn't many things as alluring as passion. However, fire comes close and red is the color most commonly associated with fire. As someone who's always been fascinated by the flame (Cheap Trick is a great band) this color just checks all the right boxes for me. That's not even naming it's other common associations, like beauty, danger (normal alert of danger really, so it's looking out for you) & sacrifice. Personally, I'd love to be Seein' Red (Unwritten Law is meh but that song is great).

  • 03

    Blue (Da Ba Dee Da Ba Daa)

    Probably the most popular of all the colors for me it only ranks third but that's not to underrate blue which is a phenomenal color too. It's the color of water, the color of one of our biggest sources of life. The color of the beautiful and never ending sea. But it's always the definitive color of sadness (that's why the call it the Blues after all) and sadness, in my view, is a good thing, especially crying. It's a purging of emotions, making it arguably, the most cathartic of all colors. It's also a driving force in the Tobias Blue Man Group storyline in Arrested Development so what's not to love.

    Violet

    Out of all the colors of the rainbows, the characteristics usually associated with this magnificent marvel is the closest to yours truly. The extravagant ~ I spare no expense to get my friends to do ridiculously things. The individualist ~ I'm an individualist. Ambiguity ~ Many of the paths I walk in life, are finished before they're started. Unconventional ~ I once did my math homework in the form of a comic book. Artifical ~ Many speculate my personality has been manufactured by taking the best & worst parts from fictional character I love.

    Yellow

    The Simpsons! This is the color of America's favorite animated family and isn't that justification enough to place it firmly as the number fifth greatest color of the Rainbow. It's not like the show hasn't been good in ages or anything.




Final Thoughts

Alright, the actual number fifth is Orange. Think it's time I come clean and confess, this is not the most serious list I've written. A lot of it is true, some of it isn't. I totally did that comic book thing though, it featured Blossom from the Powerpuff Girls & Kirby from Nintendo. I do love the Rainbow and I think all the colors of it are beautiful in their own special way. Except Indigo. So if you guys have a favorite color of the Rainbow, let me know in the comments. Thanks for reading!

P.S. Did I categorize this right?

    My favorite color changes over time. Right now, I'm into the cool versions of purple, red, pink, blue and green. Great list, thanks for sharing.

    My favorite color is red. I like it because it reminds me of vibrancy. I like feeling alive and red just seems to suit me when I am wearing it.
