This is probably a dumb question, but I just googled it and I couldn't find an answer. J. Geils band, song Love Stinks, there's a line "I've had the blues, the reds and the pinks".
I've had the blues probably means what it sounds like and the song itself is quite straight forward, just that love isn't always requited and that's not much fun.
But what does it mean "I've had the reds and the pinks", or does it not mean anything.
When I was growing up, I assumed those were code for drugs, but I'm not sure that's right. Sometimes lyrics are just words without meaning too, so that's possible.
