So I was struck with inspiration in the car on the way to work this morning. Those who've been reading this journal for a while may remember the occasional game of 'title an unwritten collaboration', where I offered a pair of authors, and the next person came up with a title for the book they'd write together, then offered another pair of authors, and the next person would write that one, and so on...?
You don't remember it? here's one entry of this game.
So I'm wondering how successful this would be as a game played with music authorship instead of fiction authorship. Nick Cave and the Backstreet Boys, for instance, might write "I Want it DEAD". Slightly more esoterically, David Bowie and Laurie Anderson might write "On Wearing Mrs. Haversham's Wedding Dress".
I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not: it requires a lot more extrapolation and biographica about the artists in question.
I'm going to start a game of Name That Novel in the next post.
