Life Begins... A Musical Prompt Challenge  


Music is a big part of my life. Like… huge. And you may have noticed that I tend to share my love for powerful lyrics here, whether by using them as post titles, posting lyrics, or making fanmixes. (And if you haven't noticed: Hi. Haaaave you met Sho? *g*)

Anyway, in exactly six seven months and one day's time I celebrate a milestone birthday and I thought what I'd do is compile a CD's worth of songs that have and still do mean an extraordinary amount to me and put them up here in a six month prompt-athon.

I'd love it if y'all would take a look and if something here (or hell, all of it!) inspires you to create something please link me to the end result. No matter the fandom, the pairing, the lack thereof, the format. Anything. This music is part of who I am and you are all part of who I am and I just want to share that with you all.

I call it my "Life Begins..." challenge (guess what milestone I hit in December then…) and hope y'all will join in! My birthday's on the 30th December, but I'm not gonna force you all to POST BY THEN OR ELSE! 'cos this is meant to be fun. My way of sharing what I love with the people I love.

Wow. I'm always surprised when you mention your age, and I still refuse to believe you're that many years older than me - cannot be true!!

That's a heck of a playlist/mix, honey! I know some of those songs, most definitely, and others are a mystery, so I plan on downloading and having a listen. One of the ones that I know has been in my head as a music vid idea for just about forever! I should get to that (at last) and do so in your honour! :)

Who knows what the rest of the music might inspire? I am personally easily swayed by good tuneage ;)

Yay! Glad you like it sweetie - and I really hope you're inspired by some of the ones you've never encountered before!
