themesong: a music meme
Lisa and I were bored so we put our boredom to good use and came up with a new music meme thing!
Music meme things have come and gone (and some are still around) and we love them because those of us who post a lot of music like to have a cue or a prod or something to write about to go with our music. We like to share the music we love with our followers. We also love getting to listen to what the people we follow are sharing. So here we are with another reason to post a song every day. Another meme. Another thing. This one is kind of a group effort.
Going off what was done with the 52 weeks thing on tumblr last year, we decided to come up with vague, open-ended themes that could be interpreted in a number of different ways. That’s right. A different theme every day. Every day.
That’s a lot of themes, you say. How are you going to keep coming up with so many? Well, that’s where you come in. We’ve made a Google Doc just for this occasion (anyone who wants to make this doc look nice or fix it up, feel free). We’ve started you off with two weeks of songs. Now anyone can go in and put in a theme on a day that’s open. We’ll just keep filling in the days until some time in the future when - as happens with all memes - interest wanes and drops off and something else gets our attention.
We just ask that you look at the themes posted already so you can see where we’re going with this. The ability to take a theme different ways is key to making this interesting.
We also encourage everyone who takes part in this - and whether you do it every day or just once in a while is completely up to you, there are no rules here - to write a little about the song you choose and why you chose that one.
So you’ve got 14 themes/days to start with. It’s up to you (us) to keep those dates filled with new themes. These themes are wide open. Maybe they remind you of something, or maybe you want to take it literally or maybe we’ll never know why you chose that particular song to go with that theme, and we’re ok with that. It’s all about the fun and the music and the randomness.
Mostly, it’s about the group participation. So go into that doc and start adding themes. This is wide open. Also, feel free to go into any month from now til December (yea, we have high hopes).
Tag your posts #themesong and feel free to reblog/pass around/whatever.
Hope you play along!
edit:I know we said there are no rules to #themesong but there is a rule and it’s a pretty big one.
Once a theme has been entered for a date, do not go in and change it. Especially do not edit or change a theme someone else has entered. For real. That’s not nice.
