The word GREEN, in its alternate definition meaning "environmentally-friendly," has become a heavily-used tag in recent years. I was listening to a sixties-pop radio station recently, and the DJ played three GREEN songs in a row. I did some research, and I found that exactly nine U.S. top-ten pop hits have contained the word GREEN in their titles. Oddly, every single one of them was released between 1960 and 1970. I guess that was the real "Green Decade."

And so, for today's Brain Game...

GREEN songs can you name?
