I've never contributed an idea, but I had a thought that could be fun and on-going... almost like the week in news. What about chops for songs. Sort of like The Week In News... where we'd link to the YouTube video and chop the song... for example, Bob Dylan's Desolation Row:

They’re selling postcards of the hanging
They’re painting the passports brown
The beauty parlor is filled with sailors
The circus is in town
Here comes the blind commissioner
They’ve got him in a trance
One hand is tied to the tight-rope walker
The other is in his pants
And the riot squad they’re restless
They need somewhere to go
As Lady and I look out tonight
From Desolation Row

Cinderella, she seems so easy
“It takes one to know one,” she smiles
And puts her hands in her back pockets
Bette Davis style
And in comes Romeo, he’s moaning
“You Belong to Me I Believe”
And someone says, “You’re in the wrong place my friend
You better leave”
And the only sound that’s left
After the ambulances go
Is Cinderella sweeping up
On Desolation Row

There is a lot more... Back to me: There is so much to consider here... Of course contest rules would apply for videos... but I thought... well, it's an idea... Song Chops.

I'm a big fan of Pearl Jam and Soundgarden... love to chop a song... imagine what could done with Black Hole Sun. Imagine what could be done with John Lennon's Imagine.

A lot of our international friends like songs we've may never heard of that would be cool to have a link to from a great chop to a singer or band we otherwise would never know.

The Beatles:

Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Came down upon her head.
Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Made sure that she was dead.

What does Penny Lane look like?
