Thank you! The title comes from the lyrics - all the color names contain a word of the lyrics.. Have you ever played the CSL - Colorful Song Lyrics challenge?
Otherwise, CSL is for any palette inspired on music. =)

I've done this many times, so I think I managed to find a fairly good technic.
This is what I do:

1) I first vaguely decide the "kind" of gradient (approx color, hue, sat...) by doing some keyword searches - I choose colors which appear the most. (eg. if you have the keyword "fire" & "love", it'll be easier to make a reddish gradient)

2) Starting off with the CSL color + 1 existing color I'd like to use, I make the gradient without searching. This is to know what exact color I'll need to search.

3) I try to find each color using the classic CL search engine - Without using any keyword, this is to get the options right (hue, saturation & Value)

4) Once I got the search options the most precise I can (example), only then do I try searching using keywords (example).
I want to know how to do this too. I think I am already doing something like it but not approaching what YCC did. Please teach me; help me grow. Do I need a special tool?

Making gradients playing CSL is really like a puzzle! -All colors names contain words that are used in the lyrics.

Thank you!!
.. but I must admit that I'm not always up to it. Also, to find the exact right colour, I need to use the classic color search. the HSV options - which lately doesn't work all the time, they must be tweaking the code.
