A whole new way to write poetry


Jun 20 2008, 16h50

Rules: Put your playlist on shuffle and write down the first 25 songs you get...

1. U2- Mysterious Ways
2. Pearl Jam- Drifting
3. Sonic Youth- Shoot
4. Spoon- Paper Tiger
5. The Rolling Stones- Stupid Girl
6. The Beatles- Wild Honey Pie
7. The Ramones- Pinhead
8. R.E.M- Losing My Religion
9. Red Hot Chili Peppers- Walkabout
10. Beck- Guess I'm Doing Fine
11. Radiohead- 2+2=5 (The Lukewarm)
12. Meat Puppets- Light
13. Sonic Youth- Kool Thing
14. R.E.M- I'm Gonna DJ
15. The Ramones- Sheena Is A Punk Rocker
16. Screaming Trees- Back Together
17. Tom Petty- Stop Draggin' My Heart Around
18. Nine Inch Nails- March of the Pigs
19. Radiohead- Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box
20. Pearl Jam- Betterman
21. The Beatles- Blackbird
22. The Beatles- For You Blue
23. The Rolling Stones- I Want to Be Loved
24. U2- Pride (in the Name of Love)
25. Johnny Cash- Memories Are Made Of This

Now take the first line from the first song, the second line from the second song, third line from the third song, etc. and put them in order below to make your scrambled song. If the song doesn't have enough lines loop back to the beginning--like if you need the 22nd line but the song only has 15 lines, you start counting again with the first line as line 16 and end up using line 7.

Here's what I ended up with:

Johnny take a walk with you sister the moon
I got myself a mansion then I gave it away
Can I have some money?
Something I read on a dollar bill
The way she powders her nose

Honey Pie
D-U-M-B, everyone's accusing me
That's me in the corner
On a walkabout
Guess I'm doing fine

You can scream and you can shout
Over land to dry
I don't wanna
It's on my mind
Punk punk, a punk rocker

Put it back together
Baby, you could never look me in the eye
I give you all that you want
I'm a reasonable man
She dreams in color

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Beacuase you're sweet and lovely girl it's true
The touch of your hand drives me insane
One man to overthrow
Don't forget a small moonbeam

That almost made sense.
