Fantastic, I love the look of Purenight Blue 2.0!
Would it be possible to have all track details listed with the same color, instead of alternating?
I swear I have tried, even with hiccup's Sample Skin, but I cannot find the right line of code to replace.
Thank you!

Open the .xml in a text editor and search for all occurrences of "alternating".
There shouldn't be a lot of those and the element in question will have track details in its name.
From there on, it's just a matter of changing the rgb values to match the main rows.

The thing is that it is a .xmlc skin, so I don't know which lines are being used in the original skin.
Following hiccup's instructions, I created a child .xml skin and used Sample Skin as the template to copy/paste the lines from, but every line with the word "alternating" in which I change the RGB values does not give the desired results.

If you are working with a piggy-back or overriding skin file, then it may not only be one element that you have to change.
See here for a recent display of element dependency on MB skins: https://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=40165.msg217774#msg217774

So what you'd need to do is probably list all Content[TrackDetail] elements in your overriding skin in order for it to take effect.

You may be doing something wrong.
This works fine for me:
Code
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<root dependsOn="Purenight Blue 2.0.xmlc">
<element id="Content[TrackDetail].ListAlternating.Default" bg="34,35,39" fg="150,150,150" />
</root>

I also noticed the Purenight Blue 2.0 skin may have some flaw(s):
E.g. nothing happens when left-clicking the hamburger menu button top-left.

On my computer, the hamburger menu responds, with Purenight Blue 2.0.xmlc alone, or with a piggy-back based on it.

Code
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<root dependsOn="PureNight Blue 2.0.xmlc">
<element id="Content[TrackDetail].Body.Default" bg="040,042,052" fg="170,170,170" bdr="100,60,80" />
<element id="Content[TrackDetail].ListAlternating.Default" bg="044,049,060" fg="170,170,170" />
</root>

That bug then probably depends on the layout that you are using.

Thank you for your answers.
@hiccup your method does indeed work, but it turns the lighter of the two fonts into the same darker color.
I wanted precisely the opposite: to have the darker font equal to that of the brighter.

I can report the hamburger icon does also not work for me.

It does that for me.

You are right! But let me ask it another way then, how could I achieve changing both the darker and the brighter font colors?
I wouldn't mind having them both brighter.
Thanks!

I think you have been handed all the tools and explanations that should make it easy for you to solve this by yourself now.
I'm sorry, but the bus stops here for me.

Thanks hiccup! Here it is, for whomever it may benefit:

Code
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<root dependsOn="PureNight Blue 2.0.xmlc">
<element id="Content[TrackDetail].Body.Default" bg="034,035,039" fg="200,200,200" bdr="100,60,80" />
<element id="Content[TrackDetail].ListAlternating.Default" bg="034,035,039" fg="200,200,200" />
</root>
The two font colors are now both 200,200,200
