In an effort to keep myself writing as often as possible, I have been taking songs I like and then penning a wee story that is kind of based on the lyrics. It is just a bit of fun and there was a part of me that wondered if the source material would shine through too obviously.
I was way off the mark with that thought!!
So there are 3 stories on this blog that are based on songs. The songs are as follows
They are not literal interpretations, more a cover version in story form. Bizarrely the Soft Cell one was the least read of them all…despite it being the most mainstream song…
This all came about because when I hear songs with lyrics I like, I seem to always conjure up little pictures in my head. What did they mean? What was happening? That sort of thing.
The first time I was fully aware that I was doing this, was when I heard this Roxette Song.
The line “The sound of silence and all around” conjured up a vivid picture of lonliness that kept getting more detail with each time I heard it.
So when that keeps happening, you should realise that the world is telling you something.
It only took me 20+ years to realise what.
Another song to story will appear later on today. Not a particularly obscure song but offbeat enough.
