Jumping the gun a bit since we don't have a title or formal songtitles either but the idea was brought up on her thread given this and who could disagree?

Oh and try not to have them all be jokes about the new boyfriend.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 14 May 2018 12:35 (one week ago) Permalink

I'll have 'blaze forever like a useless star' pls!

imago, Monday, 14 May 2018 12:37 (one week ago) Permalink

But jokes about the old boyfriend would be in poor taste.

I will try my hand at composing something for "So Heavy I Fell Through the Earth."

You should know it will be bad, though. I'm just giving you a fair warning!

Nobody wants to do a blues song obviously.

"The Blueshammer tribute to Natalie Portman."

That's me sold.

Kanye O'er Frae France? (Tom D.), Monday, 14 May 2018 16:54 (one week ago) Permalink

Is it possible for the lyrics to recap the Black Swan episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm?

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Monday, 14 May 2018 17:01 (one week ago) Permalink

hfs i saw darq souls and i couldn't believe that was for real, maybe in part for dungeon related reasons.

Hunt3r, Monday, 14 May 2018 17:06 (one week ago) Permalink

kinda pictured Black Swan Blues as a T-Rex/Goldfrapp style

Hazy Maze Cave (Adam Bruneau), Monday, 14 May 2018 17:15 (one week ago) Permalink

my initial approach to "B4 the fever" will be via "After the Fall" by Klaus Nomi

Hazy Maze Cave (Adam Bruneau), Monday, 14 May 2018 17:17 (one week ago) Permalink

Aww, I thought it would be inspired by "Get Down" by B4-4.

MarkoP, Monday, 14 May 2018 17:22 (one week ago) Permalink

Mine's will be inspired by this:

How many of these posters are women?

we æt so many shimripl (Whiney G. Weingarten), Monday, 14 May 2018 17:29 (one week ago) Permalink

Frankly been wondering that myself. But I'm not surprised, sadly.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 14 May 2018 17:30 (one week ago) Permalink

This would be the first pre-cover of a woman musician?

how's life, Monday, 14 May 2018 17:33 (one week ago) Permalink

Almost (Gillian, New Order).

Ned Raggett, Monday, 14 May 2018 17:35 (one week ago) Permalink

I wouldn’t be surprised if it was all men... but then, what’s the proportion of male/female posters on ilm ?

AlXTC from Paris, Monday, 14 May 2018 17:57 (one week ago) Permalink

idk
i exist

i also did not volunteer to make a track for this because i know nothing about grimes

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Monday, 14 May 2018 18:08 (one week ago) Permalink

You don't have to know anything about Grimes though.

Kanye O'er Frae France? (Tom D.), Monday, 14 May 2018 18:09 (one week ago) Permalink

beyond not being familiar with her music at all, i can't say i feel particularly motivated to do this tbh

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Monday, 14 May 2018 18:13 (one week ago) Permalink

I can rescind my contribution to "So Heavy I Fell Through the Earth" so a woman can be included in this project.

Please let me know if someone is interested in taking over.

the sound of space, Monday, 14 May 2018 18:16 (one week ago) Permalink

A woman will definitely be included in this - depending on the demands of her MA course, maybe even in a writing capacity

"4aem"

it's for the best i didn't try to secure one of these, definitely would've sampled our lady peace's "4am" for this one

idk why but this made me laugh

imo world princess pt 2 but I am the only person who thinks that, try kill v maim.'realiti' (demo) is the popular choice but i much prefer the subsequent album to it

Realiti (demo)
Artangels

World Princess II
Butterfly

gneb farts (darraghmac), Tuesday, 15 May 2018 00:12 (six days ago) Permalink

ok i listened to world princess II and vanessa
her videos are super cool
i totally dig her dance moves and general look
the music seems ok if a little generic sounding?
her singing voice is not to my liking
now i know what grimes sounds like -- thank you for the recommendations

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 15 May 2018 12:41 (six days ago) Permalink

i also watched "art angels" and definitely like her as a person
i liked the part where she said producers were calling her and offering to do her job for her. that must be super irritating.
i feel like at least i know what she is about now.
what's the deadline?

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 15 May 2018 12:48 (six days ago) Permalink

June 30th!

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 15 May 2018 13:09 (six days ago) Permalink

oh -- ok then. maybe i will try to produce something! what's up for grabs?

The sound of space offered up his spot, for “So heavy I fell through the earth.”
