Let's write a song together
 
I've got a little music project coming up so I thought I'd be fun if we each pitched in a couple of lines and wrote a song. Anyone up for it?

millerman 11-24-2008 09:30 AM

What's the theme/idea behind the song?

someonecompletelyrandom 11-24-2008 10:27 AM

Darn! I wish I would have added a poll...

Oh well... I'll just give some basic themes then we can devolope it more from there:

Anger/Hate/Violence

Sadness/Depression

Love/Love Gone Bad/Love Gone Right

Pain/Suffering

Surrealism/Metaphores

Coolness/Sauve/At Ease

Politics

millerman 11-24-2008 01:16 PM

Just about everything going then? :P

You start the ball rolling ...

someonecompletelyrandom 11-24-2008 01:29 PM

Pick one of the themes.

kaleidoscope.. 11-24-2008 05:04 PM

why would you want to write a song about anger hate or violence?sad

thomasbreaker 11-24-2008 05:25 PM

Maybe you can start it off then we could pitch in but it would be helpful if we have some sort of plot to peg on to. Like a concept or something i.e. "artist dying of cancer", "old man in love with a young girl", "boy beaten by father", etc.. I think if we could identify the struggle would be much more interesting. What do you think?

someonecompletelyrandom 11-24-2008 05:57 PM

I was planning on doing that as soon as people chose one of the above basic themes I wrote. For example, if people choose the "Love/Love Gone Bad/Love Gone Right" category then we could do something like "Old man in love with young girl". Do you get what I
I'm saying?

thomasbreaker 11-24-2008 05:59 PM

Copy that. Okay let's see.. I'd go for Surrealism/Metaphores

billyjerome 11-24-2008 06:10 PM

:laughing:

This should be interesting..

How about song where the hare races the turtle, but doesn't stop for breaks so he wins easily. But in a victory celebration he get's drunk and passes out, then the turtle suffocates the hare with a pillow.

^This

Anybody want to start with a line?

guitargirl_93 11-25-2008 05:52 PM

haha start with a line...that's where races start...

Wait is it in the perspective of the turtle, hare, or is it narrative? And is it gonna be a rock care-free song with meaningful lyrics? Or a ballad? Or...And is it past or present?

There's lots that has to be known about a song, lol.

Astronomer 11-25-2008 05:55 PM

What the hell is up with this thread?

someonecompletelyrandom 11-25-2008 06:00 PM

^It should be from the perspective of shiseido_red looking in on people talking about it.

FaSho 11-25-2008 06:09 PM

Why the hell does a turtle decide to race a hare anyway?

Unless it's a metaphor!

Double X 11-25-2008 06:39 PM

Yeah it's really metaphor to how penguins interact with sea lions...

thomasbreaker 11-25-2008 07:34 PM

I guess this song is about animals..??

SwayBreezy 11-26-2008 10:41 AM

I'll give the opening line a shot....

As the sun shown down on the great green plain.

DearJenny 11-26-2008 10:43 AM

My favorite lyrics I wrote is:

"The cigarette burned away minutes of it's life,
And years of mine."

If someone is serious about a collective songwriting thing, we can use that.

Double X 11-26-2008 02:51 PM

Is it first person perspective or third person?

Haha, exactly what I was asking. It's kinda hard to write when you don't know these things!

someonecompletelyrandom 11-26-2008 11:56 PM

Actually I think it's the turtle who wins..

FaSho 11-27-2008 07:57 AM

Not in this version.

josh.averes 01-04-2009 06:18 PM

first post BTW love the site, will be coming back,

As Usain lined up Hawking for a hundred meter dash,
The turtle was already eying up the winners sash
The turtle dreamed the prize was his, his eyes transfixed on gold
Jamaicas heart was racing, the race already his.

He presumed


stevesonthebay 01-12-2009 06:43 AM
