Looking for inspiration to create poetry – look no further than your iPod!
I thought I’d have a bit of fun with this month’s challenge as it’s the holidays.
I got the idea for the playlist shuffle game from Kristian. If you’ve not played before you basically put an iPod playlist on shuffle and write down the first line of the first ten songs that play to create a poem.
This is my gym playlist so it’s pretty heavy and a little risqué! But it’s actually not a bad poem…
She’s a steel thrill suicide
Am I going insane?
I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout, thinkin’ ’bout sex
Give me the flammable light
Naked pictures on my telephone
Hey, how long have you been crawling with the sick and appaling?
No ones laughing now
My life is perfect, so you believe
Each day is a war
I did my time and I want out
Cyanide Sweet Tooth Suicide – Shinedown
Your Betrayal – Bullet For My Valentione
Anything Goes – Guns ‘n Roses
Something From Nothing – Foo Fighters
Gonna Get Mine – Halestorm
You Have Come to the Right Place – Sixx:A.M
Gone Sovereign – Stone Sour
Dot Your Eyes – Five Finger Death Punch
Chaos – Like a Storm
Psychosocial – Slipknot
Have you ever done anything like this to create poetry? I’d love to know below.
Check back next week and I’ll have another one for you.

That’s some really good music on your playlist. I’ll have to try something like that and see what I get.
Yes do, it was so much fun! I’d love to see what you come up with 🙂
I just posted my poem of collected lyrics on my page. I also gave you a shout out for the idea and linked back to you. This was pretty fun. Check it out.
I will check it out indeed – Don’t you just love how we’re all inspiring each other? That’s what makes blogging so much fun 🙂

Rockin’ idea! My turn. See if you can guess the songs:
Title: My Song For Nicky
Love, look at the two of us
Sitting in the morning sun
I always stood behind you, always close
Don’t you know I can see what you’re doing?
Living my life in a slow hell
Esta noche contigo la paser le
You, you’re still the whisper on my lips
There’s the cool kids
How gentle is the rain that falls softly on the meadow?
There are some people in the world who say that writing stories or composing music or dancing sparkly dances is easy for them.
That’s so cool – Thankyou! 🙂
