Say you've got
x = Range[100]/100;
y = 4*x*(1 - x);
z = Sin[2*Pi*x]/x;

I want to use Hue[] for the colour. So I have to normalize the z-values:

col = (z - Min[z])/(Max[z] - Min[z]);

And plot it:

Show[Graphics[{Hue[#3], Point[{#1, #2}]}]&[Sequence @@ #1]& /@
   Transpose[{x, y, col}],
   PlotLabel -> "Gravity's Rainbow", Background -> DarkSlateBlue];
