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