Making songs my own
In Week 44 of The Great Wake Up our challenge was to write a song.
OK, time for silliness, and to do something I've been thinking about for a little while...
A month or so ago I was at a BBQ with friends. Alcohol may have been partaken... Somehow, someone started singing "Food, Glorious Food" from Oliver!, albeit with a few, shall we say, edits... I found this rather inspiring and, just for fun, here's a snippet of where my mind went.
Mood, I'm in a mood,
What's this that I've just heard?
Night sweats are the good part
Menopausal and flustered!
Chin hairs and my memory's shot
What next is the question?
I thought I was still red hot
But that's just my aggression!
My mood, glorious mood,
I'm in a mood...
It's been a little while since I've been inspired, but I have a little collection of re-written song and poems that mark transitions in my life, so I'm grateful for the reminder (although, clearly this one was pure speculation...). Bet you'll never guess what I did with The Night Before Christmas...
