Purple Yellow Red and Blue by Portugal. The Man

Purple Yellow Red and Blue starts off with a simple mechanical beat and synth line, before the distorted vocals kick in, followed by some dominant percussion coming into the mix. This song is very catchy, probably one of the most straightforward songs on the album. Gourley nails his lyrics once again, especially in the first verse with “When I grow up I wanna be, A movie star or on TV, Cuz workin’ just don’t work for me”. Danger Mouse adds some nice effects throughout the song with synthesizers and also distorting the vocals, which keeps the track interesting as it unfolds. It’s just over 4 minutes long, but feels like 2 minutes.
