This week it is a music prompt but I am taking away a little bit of your freedom as I am choosing the artist lol Always an excuse to inflict my musical proclivities onto a defenseless audience. Seriously though Jeff Buckley is amazing! One of my favorite artists of all time and I have a compulsive need to share. I have chosen 4 songs for you to pick from that way you’re not totally tied down. The songs are only to inspire you, take from them as you will (you do not need to copy his style or write a tribute piece or anything just listen to the song and create freely). You do not have to write a song unless of course you want to write a song poetry, stories, photos, artwork, articles anything is fine. You do not need to post an audio/video link to the song of your choice but do let me know which of the songs you chose for your inspiration. If you want you can write a piece for each song or multiple pieces you know I am not very restrictive lol I made sure the songs all came with lyrics because I know writers must have their lyrics!
Lilac Wine (lyrics are under the video)
So real (lyrics underneath)
And good old Mr. Linky

Helen you are amazing! I am going to look right now =)
Oh my, Jeff Buckley ❤ How does one even pick a favourite from him? I am amazed you managed to put only 4! 😀
You are a fan I am so happy! My God I told myself I would do 3 but I did 4 and I already had the 5th, 6th, 7th and so on in mind lol
Since you are familiar with his work you can use any song you like just let me know which one =)
This is in my head – however, am just off to stand in a field for a few hours watching the following musicians doing stuff… http://youtu.be/zK4WAKc9R4g

OMG His version of Lilac Wine is one of my FAVORITES!!!!!! I mean seriously I jumped when I saw that was the first choice. I didn’t even read the entire prompt yet after I saw his name, I scanned for song options. I actually painted something to that song. WOOHOO

Greetings from London.
It truly is =) Greetings from Sweden!
Added mine! I am so happy I had a chance to finish it!
Me too! I am going to go read it now
While exploring Jeff Buckley’s music, I read a title that inspired my poem, “The Sky Is a Landfill.” Totally different interpretation than his song, but I loved the idea!
I am off to read! I am glad to hear you were exploring =)
