Ocean Billy
Billy Ocean: Greatest Hits
The Colour Of Love
Ooh ooh ooh

If I had to paint a pictures
To show the world how love can really be
I would use the brightest colours
To create a vision of harmony
It would be a reality
'Cause its only what's inside of my heart
You would see I've always loved you right from the very start

Tell me what is the colour of love?
What do you see?
Is it warm is it tender when you thing of me
I see the colour of love when I'm thinking of you
As a picture perfect painting of love forever true

The colours of the rainbow turn grey whenever you're so far away
It changes like the seasons
You're the reason it happens that way
What you see are colours of emotion
Reflecting what I feel deep inside
Now I'd like to take a look at emotions that you hide

Tell me what is the colour of love?
What do you see?
Is it warm is it tender when you thing of me
I see the colour of love when I'm thinking of you
As a picture perfect painting of love forever true

And oh though many may try to keep us apart
Oh the colours that I see in you will shine a light to see us through
No matter what the world will do I'll always love you Ooh ooh ooh

Oh what is the colour of love oh tell me tell me
Oh I wanna know I wanna know - when I'm thinking of you
As a picture perfect paining of love forever true

BRIEF HISTORY OF BILLY OCEAN AS A CONTRIBUTOR TO CARIBBEAN MUSIC CULTURE
Billy Ocean is a 70s and 80s British-based recording artist and international music star. His full name is Leslie Sebastian Ocean. He was born in 21 January 1950 in Trinidad and Tobago to Grenadian parents. He was the most popular British-based R&B singer-songwriter of the early to mid-80s. Some sources said that he got his name from the Ocean Estate, Stepney, where he was living at his music career time. He left Caribbean at the age of eight with his family to Romford, London, England.

His father was a musician too. He made his first single in 1972 on Spark Records but his greatest success did not come until 1984 when he made his Caribbean Queen debut. The song won him a Grammy In 1985 for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. In February 1986, Ocean's video of "When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going" was banned by the BBC, owing to non-union members. He is still releasing great albums and his world tours are still in progress.

In 2002, he was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Westminster in London. In October 2010, he was presented with Lifetime Achievement Award at MOBO Awards.
