So, is each one of us just going to throw in some random lyrics and we're going to make a song out of them? I doubt if that'll work...
Nevertheless, I'm in.

I Am The Walrus worked just fine. :)

...a sheet of paper would be passed around, and each person would write one line of poetry, then fold the paper so the next person cannot see the previous line(s), and so on, until every person had a chance to contribute about 4 or 5 lines.

I've done that before; it's really fun!

I'm always ready to kick in lines or suggestions, but have no musical ability whatsoever. If this is going to happen however, rather than just be talked about, I think someone has to start the ball rolling and see what kind of speed it picks up. That someone should obviously be the person who started this thread.

Okay!

So... Maybe we could write the lyrics first. Even if we don't manage to create a song, it could still be an interesting poem.

But we need to decide on the topic first.

 

What kind of song are we going to write?

  • Random, I-Am-the-Walrus-style song(29% : 2 votes)
  • A song that actually makes sense and possibly tells a story(71% : 5 votes)
Total Voters: 7

 

 

Geometry, wisdom, tangerines... "The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say..."

Also known as Egg-Rock, Egg-Roll, E-George, Eggy, Ravioli, Eggroll Eggrolli...

Purple stuff... ellipses...

I think it should be in the style of "I Am The Walrus," I'm better at not making sense than I am at making sense.

That makes sense.

Thanks, I try. Maybe I am better at making sense, but I do prefer not making sense. I can't do that often, though, because people get annoyed, and sometimes confused.

I too have a penchant for nonsensical.  In high school, I did horribly in nearly every class -- except for piano (the classroom consisted of rows of Fender Rhodes electric pianos, each student hooked up by headphones to each one), and one particular English class.  Normally, I was unable to do the assignments for English well.  Then one day, for the school paper, I volunteered to submit a fiction story, and I wrote a completely nonsensical whimsical piece, which the teacher liked.  I wrote a second one like that, and he liked that one too.  He walked up to my desk to inform me I had gotten an "A" on both of them and he asked, "Why is it that when you write normal things, you can't write as well?"
