Meme: iTunes poetry meme
Stolen from gigglingkat
Put your MP3 player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results.

This is freaking me out. All I did was add punctuation and stanza breaks, and fudge a couple calls on where the first line ended.

The Work playlist MP3 Poem is VASTLY DISTURBING

I know you said,
Is this the real life?
How can you see into my eyes?
Once I was the King of Spain.
Feels like the weight of the world.

Hey man, you don't know what you're missing.
Seems like just yesterday you were a part of me.
Back to back,
Earth below us,
They say you never come home.

Hush now don't you cry,
Stay low.
Stoplight lock the door
The cage is very small
Test your might.

This was a triumph.
Tonight I'm gonna have myself such a good time
I said the joker is a wanted man.
Well I wanted you, wanted no one else.
Life, it seems to fade away.

Um. EEEEEEEK. O.O SOOOO, someone who thinks they are the former King of Spain has abducted a former close acquaintance and is keeping them in a cage and tormenting them for sick, twisted jollies until they die. Yeow. My work playlist is a delusional obsessed psycho!

The at Home on iTunes poem is freakishly epic

It was late at night on the open road,
And in that dark place that hope had abandoned long ago:
"Look on the horizon, what do my eyes behold?"
Down the line, coming down the line.

About the time that Daddy left to fight the big war.
In a foreign field he lay,
His eyes are closed and his last words spoke,
"Sail away where no ball and chain can keep us from the roarin' waves."

Master, Apprentice, Hartborne, Seventh Seeker.
Here we go for the hundredth time,
Don't call my name in battle.
Heartbreaker, soul-shaker,
I walk a lonely road.
"What do I do to ignore them behind me?"
I can't escape this hell.

On this ground I lay,
In this farewell, there's no blood, there's no alibi.
Cast off the crutch that kills the pain.
I'm sailing away,
It's time to start.

Okay, so, there's some kind of ominous war thing brewing, memory of a father dying in a battle, and then epic angsty combat and more dying in battle, only possibly in a epic 'death is but a doorway/apotheosis' kind of way. (Why am I suddenly thinking of Winchesters?) Still grim, but at least it's not locking people in cages for fun.

Wow. That's just.. wow.

Who knew your iTunes is Shakespeare reincarnate?

Dude, those are pretty damn awesome!

Entirely random iTunes poetry is pretty damn decent. Why dd I not know about this trick in poetry class in college?

I'm more wierded out by the fact that both poems actually make sense and seem pretty organic... like they were meant to be!

Everyone's are is memes are* very oddly organic. It's disturbing.

I'm trying to figure out what it means that Silent Lucidity - a song about shared lucid dreaming keeps showing up on a shared meme ...

ETA: *My brain just attempted grammar. You may want to step back.

Silent Lucidity - a song about shared lucid dreaming

Really? Hee! That's funky. I hate to admit it, but I've never closely listened to the lyrics of that one. It's just 'the song to shoot your werewolf by' and I get inappropriately snickery when it comes on.

I've been thinking, and the second one could kind of be explained by the larger amount of epic/battle/angst music on my home list, sort of... but it's so weird how they fit together.

These came out several shades of awesome! Slightly creepy, sure, but very poetical :D

It really freaks me out how the lines fit together.

So... the psycho who thinks he was once the King of Spain?

The next poem is about him. It's about a King dying on a battlefield like his father did before him.

The psycho is probably singing it to whoever he's got in the cage.

Dude. If you're life was a movie? The cops would be calling you to tell you HE'S IN THE HOUSE. GET OUT OF THE HOUSE NOW!

ahem. I'm not helping am I?

Also - seriously. EVERY ONE I've seen - Silent Lucidity's on it...

If my life was a movie though, I'd actually be able to appropriately use the five foot long broadsword in my closet. He wouldn't know what hit him. ;-D

WOAH! They way words like "wanted" are repeated line to line in the first one, and there's like, literary techniques going on there... Your ipod is a poet!
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: November 28th, 2008 08:24 am (UTC) (Link)
That really freaked me out, that combination. I shouldn't do these things late at night, I think :-)

even your random writings are cool :D

Hey, it's not me, it's iTunes. :-D

These are awesomely sweet!

I'm gonna have to go see what my Epic Playlist of Doom pulls up for me! (Seriously, it's got 1581 songs on it and if I just let it play, it would take more than 4 days for it to repeat a song.)

This fandom does tend towards generating massive playlists.
auriliawestlake From: auriliawestlake Date: December 2nd, 2008 05:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
I had massive playlists long before I got involved in Show. Show just gave me a list of nifty new names to use for them!
