I grew up on a street called Monteverde Drive, and although I wouldn't call them mountains, I definitely had a view of green hills when I'd head out the front door on my way to school every morning. It's funny to think about sometimes how much colors affect how we perceive the things we look at.

Nowhere is this more apparent than in song titles. Green shirts, green eyes, the village green, Greenville...even the names of people evoke a sense of springtime and of things growing. Give it a listen.
