Challenge Idea: Username-inspired songs?

April 12, 2017 4:35 PM

Admittedly potentially fraught! Similar to how a previous challenge invited non-MefiMusic regulars to opt-in by suggesting ideas for songs (e.g. set "When The Toad Came Home" to music), what about writing songs inspired by MeFite's usernames? They'd (we'd) have to volunteer themselves and willing Challenge-takers could call dibs on whichever they liked. Slight potential for drama, but considering some of the more creative, odd or merely unfamiliar usernames I reckon there's plenty of potential to whip up a song/piece/ditty based exclusively on the name given not the person. Good/iffy/bad idea? I lean towards iffy, but I'm a natural pessimist.

I think this has too much potential to upset people who weren't comfortable with it, but I like the concept. If we want to go meta, what about music based on a post from the blue?

That's an idea!
