I know if you are on Twitter you know that I am doing a project right now. Facebook friends, you have seen a bit of it. I would like to explain my idea.
I have decided to challenge my writing skills by combining poetry and articles with music. What does that mean? It means that I have chosen four albums already (3 followers and oe of my own choices). These include
- Ten- Pearl Jam (11 songs)
- Aja-Steely Dan (7 songs)
- New Surrender- Anberlin (12 songs)
- Vessel- twenty one pilots
I’ll tell you what I am going to do. I am going to do these three over the rest of May and most of June. I will write some of my own ideas throughout out this process, so with 32 songs and my own ideas, it will take a while. This is going to be difficult, but like I said, I want to challenge myself.
This is where you all come in. I’m going to give a list of albums. Then, if I’m lucky, I’d like you all to pick either a few songs that speak to you on that album or even the full album.
Here are some ideas
- +-Ed Sheeran (12 Songs)
- Fleetwood Mac- Fleetwood Mac (12 song)
- A Dotted Line- Nickel Creek (11 songs)
- Nevermind-Nirvana (13 songs)
- Death Of A Bachelor- Panic! At The Disco (11 songs)
- Riot-Paramore (11 songs)
- Collide With The Sky- Pierce The Veil (13 songs)
- 1989- Taylor Swift (13 songs)
- Wildfire- Rachel Platten (12 songs)
- One X- Three Days Grace
If you have a suggestion, run them by me. I literally went through my music playlist choosing albums I liked. I know we all have different tastes in music.
I don’t have a prize for it (yet), and I know that will probably make me lose potential writers.
I did have an idea though.
1.) We try to get the person/people who’s wrote the poems for the album seen by the band/artist who released the album
2.) I have an idea, but Ill let you know more once I see if it is possible. I hope it is!
Thank you so much for reading this, I hope you decide to join in. I think this is a really cool idea.
