About a week ago I asked a few questions via Twitter regarding music. Here are some of the answers and other cool stuff I found out about.
What’s your theme song? I personally don’t have one, but have songs or cds that I listen to over and over based on mood, what I’m doing, etc. Lately that’s meant Foo Fighters and Them Crooked Vultures.
“I will Survive”, “Bitch” by Meredith Brooks, “The Gambler”, “No Rain” by Blind Melon and “Joyful Girl” by Ani Difranco were all proposed as well as @oshum ‘s reply of “Soft breeze through trees and locust humming. Soft then louder then soft again. Sometimes a raging thunderstorm”
Have you ever created a work of art based on a song?
@artbynemo let me know about the artist Laurie Maves who frequently paints art based on particular songs. Here is a video of her painting a work inspired by the Big Blue Ball’s version of “The Whole Thing.”
@wrapadoodle heard a song by a woman named Tara Ellis and made a painting for it.
I then asked about what sort of music really motivates you and I got this involved answer from @fantasymarks : Pop Hits ~ cleaning, Classical & Chinese ~ art, Mexican & Jazz ~ dinner, Bellydance ~ exercise, All types ~ writing and singing.
This week Scoutie Girl blog had a post about this very thing asking people to link to their own posts talking about what music motivates them.
How does music affect you? What’s your theme song? Leave a comment and let us know, or leave a link to your own musically inspired post or artwork.
