The word GREEN, in its alternate definition meaning "environmentally-friendly,"Â hasÂ becomeÂ a heavily-used tag in recent years.Â I wasÂ 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 haveÂ 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, forÂ today's Brain Game...

GREEN songs can you name?
