Here’s my idea.
Being bored a few minutes ago–and listening to a favorite song of mine–I thought about how it might be interesting to do the 30 Day Song Challenge.
Only it’s not half as interesting doing it alone. I thought “You know, it might be cool to try out on the SDMB, and see the stories behind posters’ choices daily” Not only that, but to also get exposed to new music and genres and songs I wouldn’t normally listen to or even know about. So I figured not only would I do this on here, but I’d even add an incentive. For every poster who gets all the way to June 2nd with me, having done/posted/participated in every day of the challenge, I will Paypal a dollar.* I know…whoa nellie, right? Just don’t go off and spend it all in one place, you hear?
The requirement here, though, is you must do every day, you can’t miss any and you must also share/post the answer to any question I put forth about the daily song we’re posting about. Also, note the asterisk above… this means…
*100 person limit. I’m willing to Paypal a dollar up to one hundred people (all of that being 100 dollars total), but if over a hundred participate, every day, in the very first thread…then I will have to declare the Paypal offer null and void. I’m sure you’ll all live, though. : p
If less than 100 people take part in this, I will split up 100 dollars among however many posters did wind up doing every day (since I am/was willing to spend 100 dollars on it any way).
This is the first day, I’ll post one every two days…so, really, it will take 60 days to do–but that’s just so I don’t have twenty or thirty topics all on the first page all at once. Hopefully two days is enough for them to drop off the page. But for all I know, these might not garner much interest or just get, like, one or two others doing it. If that’s the case, though, then I’m sure the other two or three will be happy since it will mean 35 dollars for each of them.
Anyway…Day 1: Your favorite song.
I realize you might have a lot of favorites, but just choose one out of them…although posting at least one other is fine if it’s a close one between two and/or you want to share a song that used to be number one, but was knocked out by another song.
