We can do this standing on our heads.
Let's. (We don't need to be standing on our heads.)
- MeFi post on complaints choirs.
- the Official Complaints Choir How-To document.
We'll need to modify that how-to a bit. But the basics are the same - we collect complaints. We make them into a song. We record that song.
It's possible that a large number of complaints already exist on the site
waiting to be turned (with permission of their original posters) into lyrics.
In the end, with this kind of thing, there needs to be someone to put the lyrics together, someone to compose / arrange music for it, one or more people up for recording a backing track and a whole bunch of people prepared to record their vocals and send them to someone up for mixing it all down. Many of us could do any or all of those tasks, but for this, it would, I think, be best if there were a few of us putting it together, plus, of course, as many vocals as humanly possible.
