Lyrics: Poem

There’s love in the lyrics, but it’s not a POEM or a sonnet.
Scratch me up a fat beat, and I’ll go and jump up on it.
Go wild, scream, yeah, let me know how much you want it,
as I stream through the air, ’cos I’m feeling supersonic.

Next word to rap with is THEATRE

So my word for rapping with next week is ‘monster‘ and that will be my 199th lyrics.

Just like I did for the 100th word, I’m offering you the chance to submit suggestions for the 200th random word.

Needed before next week’s rap gets uploaded. Just hit comments.

Thanks.

Index page now complete

I’ve now got an index page, with a list of all the random words linking to the relevant post.

Mainly so I can check if I’ve had a random word before, but also helpful if you’re really looking for lyrics relating to zebra!

Top Ten Tunes 2013

Alright gang, thought I’d post my top-ten tunes I’ve been listening to this year. They’re not all necessarily from this year, but have made up the soundtrack to my 2013. Not all rap tunes by any means, but an insight into the listening pleasures I enjoy.

10: Sway – No Sleep.
I like the beat to this, and I really like the KSI verse. Hadn’t heard of him before this. Sway is easily my favourite rapper and am looking forward to the album finally coming in 2014.

9: Tyler James feat Kano – Worry about you
Fantastic tune, really catchy hook. Great to have a bit of Kano back in my ears.

8: Jacob banks – something beautiful
This guy has a stunning voice. I read about him in 1883 magazine and went and checked him out.

7: Nina nesbitt – statues
The amazing Nina Nesbitt took over mine and Aaron’s life in 2013. This is beautiful and the video is gorgeous too.

6: Ellie Goulding – Burn
Best dance track I’ve heard in ages. Verse 2 is cracking on the first two fast lines. This would be so brilliant to drop into in the middle of a worship tune in church!

5: Bruno Mars – Treasure
What a tasty chunk of funk. Again, verses are great. really fun to sing them.

4:  Billy Joel – The longest time
Brought to my attention thanks to appearing in a Glee episode. Like ‘treasure’ above, it’s a song I sing to my daughter.

3: Beth Croft – Arms of Grace
Great worship song. It’s all about the bridge!!

2: Sway and Kano – Still Sway and Kane
Monster monster tune! Apart from Kano’s potty mouth, I actually think he edges it on this. I like the way he varies his flow over the verse. Shame they never got to release it properly. This looked a cert to take the number 1, until …….

1: Nina Nesbitt – Way in the world
She really did just take over my ears from the second half of the year. Upbeat with a lovely sunny and fresh video. Just a ‘pop’ tune, but, this was the real moment Nina cemented her place in my life heh heh!!

100 lyrics – submit a word!!!

Hi everyone.
So once we’ve done the current random word: SPEAKER, that would mean I’ve done 99 sets of lyrics!
To celebrate I’m offering you the readers the chance to suggest the word for the 100th lyrics!

Just comment here with your suggestions and once I’ve uploaded my speaker lyrics next week I’ll include which word I’ve chosen. [who know’s, maybe if they’re great I’ll chose more than one!]

Thanks

One year!!

Well, it’s my one year anniversary of my random word rap challenge! Started in Aug 2011.

I feel like some of the earlier half were better as I seemed to have more time to hone them over the week. It’s been fun to do and I reckon I could probably perform maybe half of them properly without much practise trying to remember the flow.

This week’s verse is one of those where I’ve come up with the last line first and the rest of the lines then need to be built up to it. I find it interesting how each weeks verse is created. What drives it, wheter a certain rhyme that sounds nice, or a certain theme the word lends itself to etc

Rules recap:
– I get a random word each week
– have to write 4 lines that all rhyme with each other
– need to use the word [or variant of it] somewhere in the 4 lines, not necessarily at th end
– No swears

Thanks to those who’ve submitted ‘verses’ over the year. Let’s carry on and do some more!!!

archive update

Just added all the previous lyrics from last year, starting in August, when I first started the game.

Enjoy.
