Acrophobia #41 - Unwritten Song Titles (ROUND 1)

Recommended Posts

Just now, Dolorous Gabe said:

Essentially it's totally open.

I'd like a singer from the world of ice and fire but you can choose real world artists if you wish. Or you can be creative with it, which one player has done quite cleverly.

Sounds like I’m too late already, going to get crushed!

I meant to get something in by now, but I’ve been distracted by stuff, including getting my Pfizer vaccine yesterday (hooray!). Will do something tonight. :)

And by ye old juice you mean stout and vodka, right?

Less than 12 hours till the deadline.

It's only the first round so I don't mind extending again should anyone need it, or even just to help everyone feel their way into this edition.

Obviously once we're underway I'll be more strict on deadlines.

ROUND 2 ASSIGNMENT

 

King Robert goes on his final boar hunt

King Bobby B felled by a boar on a hunt. Makes sense in a way, right? He hunts more often than he attends to his regal duties. Would a singer see this as just a sad accident and come up with a sad lament for the day’s events or would they find something else going on here? Or is there another take some might make?

 

Use one of the following acronyms to create a song title for a minstrel of your choice

T L C

R M D A

W O D R M

 

You have until Wednesday 14th April at 11pm UK time

*advertisment*

It is unforgivable how underrated 7th is :pirate:

"Herbs" clearly-but-you-cannot-prove-it imply that it was the right medicine for Joffrey to take. And the singer is Oberyn. And it is elegant...

*not an end of advertisment, it is an endless advertisment*

I always have to read the entries over 15 or 20 times before I can pick. I was also thinking it was a song at the wedding, but it’s a song about the wedding. Hard to pick my 4, every time I read the list I like different ones.

1. 5

2. 4

3. 2

4. 8

ps I think you can throw in a longer set of letters, so we can try some long, rambling folksy titles, like “The girl from the north country fair” or something.

The likelihood of those Ts coming out in the right place though..

I usually find it impossible to create something that makes sense because some parts of the sequence may be conducive to an idea but others just aren't.

Could do acronym lengths of 3, 5 and 7 maybe?

Too late to change my vote, but I can’t disagree. The idea that Oberyn got Joffrey and The Mountain with one move is EAF (Elegant as F**k).
