Visual artists, please respond to this post with a link to an original drawing or painting or a photograph you took. I’m going to stare at the submissions and hmm and ahh until a song plops out of my head. I’ll give a shout out to any artist who inspires me, okay?
All you folks Tumbling on this Saturday afternoon, answer this post with just one word—any word—and I’ll incorporate as many answers as possible into the lyrics of the song I’m working on. Thanks for your help! — Kavalier
I’m working on a song called “California Girls”, and I’ve hit a mental block. Any Cali girls out there want to tell me what being a California girl is all about? What makes you different? Better?
I want to write a song
called Cry, Baby, Cry.
I’m too sad to list
the reasons why.
But I’m curious. I bet some of you Tumblr bloggers have encouraged a friend or lover to cry—just to let it all out. Why? What was the pain or joy they had to cry out? I’m going to think of your stories while I write the lyrics for my next song. Thanks for sharing! — Kavalier Calm
Please introduce yourself and tell me a story. Or answer this post with a link to an image. Or answer this post with your favorite ice cream flavor. Or tell me about your first kiss. Or tell me why you’ve never been kissed. Or…anything. I just want to get my creative juices flowing, and you all are the vegetables that I put in my juicer. Ugh, what a violent and odd metaphor. See? I need help! — Kavalier
Is it wrong that I like you
when you’re mean?
That question is the chorus to a song I’m working on. Don’t you all think it’s fun to be mean sometimes? I’m not saying mean, like really hurting people. But just teasing your friends or mumbling about someone’s ugly shoes under your breath. I once loved a girl who made me laugh with sarcastic, judgmental comments. What are some of the mean things you think about others? It’d help me with my lyric writing to know. — Kavalier Calm
Layla and I were chatting about adventures, and it made me wonder what kind of adventure you all would go on if you could choose. Where would you go? Who would you go with? I’m going to work a bunch of your answers into the lyrics for a song. Thanks for playing along, friends; I promise it’ll be fun. — K.C.
I need you to inspire me again, friends. Answer this post with a story, an image, a single word—anything. And I’ll mash as many responses as I can into one original song. I’ll give a shout out in my audio post to every blogger who inspires me. Thanks in advance friends.
It’s due time I write another Pokemon song, but I need you all to help me come up with good lyric ideas. I was thinking it would be fun if you answered this question: If you had a Pokemon in real life, how would you use it to make your life better? For example, if I had a Jigglypuff, I’d ask it to sing high notes on my recordings. Or if I had a Pikachu, I’d ask it to supply the power to my house. What are your ideas? — Kavalier
I’m talking about initially, at first sight, the small details—the little things you notice in another that instantly makes you interested. For me it’s dark brown eyes and a ready smile. Gets me every time. Share what piques your interest with me, and I may use your words in the lyrics to my next song. — K.C.
I’m going to write a song about promises: small ones and impossibly big ones; silent ones and ones carved in stone; sad ones and happy ones; ones kept and ones broken. Can you share some of the promises you’ve made to someone you love? It will help me write my lyrics. Here are some of mine (both kept and broken):
- I will make you breakfast every morning you wake up next to me.
- I’ll shave most days because my stubble makes your face red when we kiss.
- I will learn how to draw, just so I can draw you naked.
- We will travel the world together.
- I’m not going anywhere.
The blogger thechief0 put in a great request that I write an Alice in Wonderland-themed song. Friends, I want to crowdsource inspiration from you all again. Give me an Alice quote or tell me what your favorite moment during her adventure in Wonderland is. I’ll use my favorite answers in the lyrics and give a shout out to your blog in the audio post. Thanks in advance for playing along. — K.C.
The sound foundation (pun intended) to lyrics in many good songs is a girl’s name and a story about a hobby she enjoys or her career. For example, Roxanne and her red light. So, answer this post with a girl’s name and one or two words about what she does, and I’ll turn my favorite response into a song. Thanks in advance for contributing, friends! — K.C.
