Movie Title Challenge

[avatar]
@wacha

Ok folks, it's that time again.

Here's how the game works, you sign up, I draw a random movie title from my collection, you write a song inspired by that title, post it and tag it #movietitlechallenge

I have over 1,200 movies in my collection, well over half are horror. No, you don't have to watch the movie. You can watch it if you want, you can Google it to get the gist of it or you can go in blind and just use the title for inspiration.

Be sure to have fun and listen to others entries in the challenge. I'll do my first draw first thing in the morning on July 4th and then will plan to draw each Monday after that. You are more than welcome to play again after your first song, I'll keep drawing as long as people keep asking.

@jlampson

Hell yeah, I'm in.

[avatar]

Yes please, Catherine! Thanks as always for doing this :)

[avatar]

Yes! Thank you! I’m in and will write lyrics for this challenge and open to collab or co-write for the challenge!

[avatar]
@jlampson

@kahlo2013 - I would love to do another collaboration with you, whether for this or any other challenge or reason!

[avatar]

I’ll give it a try. Are there rules as to when latest to post the song? Same day or the day after? Or only anytime before the end of 50/90? Is it okay to post only music, without lyrics?

[avatar]

Yes, please, and thank you! Love this challenge!! :)

@cblack

Hit me!

[avatar]

Sounds great. I’m in! Horror titles are great fodder for my genre

[avatar]

If I get it soon I might be able to sneak one in!

[avatar]

count me in!

[avatar]

I love this challenge but I'm trying to avoid horrors and thrillers so I'm not sure it is possible to participate but if it is please count me in :)

[avatar]

Thanks Catherine. I’ll take one

[avatar]

Thanks so much for doing this very cool challenge! I am totally in! It really reminds me of Sufjan Stevens and Angelo de Augustine's collaborative album "A Beginner's Mind" where they watched movies together and wrote songs about each one. Incredible creative process.

[avatar]

If it's not too late, I'm in

[avatar]

Thank you for the inspiration! I misread my title as "Goodbye, Mr. Fancy," haha, which I would love to see. I immediately had a song idea so even after I realized my mistake, I just ran with it.

@dh3

Thanks so much for the film @wacha - here's my song, Magnolia: https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/1165

[avatar]

I can't promise I'll get around to it until FAWM... where I'll double it up with that challenges prompt, but give it to me. The movie geek in me wouldn't feel right going without.

[avatar]

This is always one of my favourites at FAWM - so count me in!

[avatar]

If you're drawing again this week, I'd love another one!

[avatar]

Hit me, dealer!

[avatar]

I finally got this round 1 done mixed in with2 other challenges https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/1619

[avatar]

Here's the lyrics I came up with for 'The Collector'.
https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/1680

[avatar]

So here is my response to "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory".

I have always felt that Willy was something of a paedoPHOBE, rather than the paedoPHILE some have seen in him. This song might have featured in the film as a warning song sung by a character who knew Willy from a long time back.

I'm in if there's another round

@jamkar

Here is my entry for "Popeye".

Late to the game

Here’s my response to the movie title “Big” titled “I’ll Dance Alone” https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/3991

[avatar]

The theme this week on the Seasons of the Ukulele (at the Ukulele Underground Forum) was "Films" - I immediately thought of this thread. But as I was running out of time (I had visitors coming who'd want entertaining) I didn't think I could wait to be given a title. Instead, I went to the first list I could find of the "50 Best Movies" and before looking at the list I decided I would use #24 (my lucky number). The result was "Rear Window".

I came up with a rather creepy alternative to Jimmy Stewarts's seeing a murder from his window. Hope you enjoy:

I'd love to give this a try if it's still going!
