Pink is the color of passion is an Aerosmith, the song lyrics go as:
Pink it’s my new obsession
Pink it’s not even a question
Pink on the lips of your lover,
‘Cause pink is the love you discover
Pink as the bing on your cherry
Pink ’cause you are so very
Pink it’s the color of passion
“Cause today it just goes with the fashion.
Pink it was love at first sight,
Yeah, pink when I turn out the light,
And pink gets me high as a kite
And I think evertyhing is going to be all right
No matter what we do tonight.
You could be my flamingo
“Cause pink is the new kinda lingo
Pink like a deco umbrella
It’s kink – but you don’t ever tell her
I want to be your lover
I want to wrap you in rubber
As pink as the sheets that we lay on
“Cause pink is my favorite crayon, yeah
The song was released in 1997

Fact: Sunrises and Sunsets are pink because as sunlight travels through the atmosphere some colors are scattered out of the beam by air and airborne molecules and particles. This is called the, “Rayleigh Effect” Colors with a shorter wavelength such as green and blue scatter more strongly and are removed from the light that finally reaches your eye. At sunrise and sunset, when the path of sunlight through the atmosphere to the eye is the longest with blue and geen gone the longer wavelengths of orange, red and pink are left.
