Sarah, a listener in Chicago, wrote to us recently to say that purple is her favorite color, and that there seem to be a lot of songs with shades of purple in the title. "Both Jeremy Messersmith and Hippo Campus have songs called 'Violet'," Sarah notes, "and of course, there's Hendrix's 'Purple Haze' — there's gotta be more, right?"

We think there are more songs like that, and you probably do, too. So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear that have shades of purple in the title? Send us your requests.

And thank you, Sarah, for today's suggestion!

Songs Played


Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix
Voices Green and Purple - The Bees
