Need a song idea

#1 Postby djshrew » Tue Sep 30, 2008 2:49 pm

so, for my improv dance class we are supposed to think of a song to improv to, thing is we also have to do other things with the song (such as sing and create a myth based on the song) The song I had in mind is about 7 minutes long (and is kind of crazy, so singing it would be interesting without the music) I am looking for something a bit shorter, any ideas would be great!

anything is fine, the two songs I had in mind were both very different from each other , 1 from Silverchair and the other from Crass. so really anything that is not all swearing and would not sound insane being sung without the music.

I think a Patty Griffin song would be good. Burgundy Shoes. If it's not too slow...

Thanks for all of the tips, I ended up singing a NOFX song, Franco-UnAmerican. It's pretty short and I already knoew all the words (since we had to memorize them also)
I have to read a fairy tale on Thursday based on the lyrics, should be funny.
