I would like to do love in country music for my theme-genre combo. This would incorporate many forms of love such as young love, lost love, etc. Does anyone have any suggestions of songs that would be included in this combo?

2) struggle in rap
3) love in alternative rock

3 genres:

Break up in alternative rock

Dreams in Country

Struggle in Rap

David A. said...

Suzanne, a good song for Heartache in Country would be; "Here Comes Goodbye" By: Rascal Flatts.

kristina fogg said...

hey tori, i think alternative rock and heartbreak is a good idea. A lot of alternative rock has to do with heartbreak and love. For example, the goo goo dolls

tori bravetti said...

kristina,
i like your idea of love in alternative rock, there are a lot of songs you could use for that theme genre.

I like how everyone is doing some sort of love/heartbreak in country....

KBTenglin said...

Kris a good song for you would be "Sweet and Wild" by: Dierks Bentley

Kristen Tenglin said...

Tim, Rascal Flatts are a good band for dreams in country music!

Kristina Fogg said...

kristen, there are a lot of love songs for country. Good artists are Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban

Nicolette Graham said...

I was thinking optimism as a theme. I was not too sure of what genre would work well with the theme though. Perhaps optimism in pop, but I would prefer another genre.

I am not knowledgeable in genres other than the most well known genres. Any ideas?

vittoriabravetti said...

hey kristen, love in country is a good idea, a lot of taylor swift songs are about love

vittoriabravetti said...

hey sean, cool ideaaaaa

Kristina Fogg said...

david, a good song for love and country is need you now by lady antebellum

amanda said...

Heartbreak in Alternative Rock

Happiness in Indie Pop

Love in Pop Punk

Jamie Tyree said...

1. freedom in classic rock
2. heartbreak in metal
3. poverty in rap

seanworrall said...

josh, i think you have swell ideas, i love metal

KBTenglin said...

Anyone who is doing love or heartbreak in country "Quitter" by: Carrie Underwood I think could be good for both of them

vittoriabravetti said...

hey josh, death in metal is intenseeeeee, lol dont do it

Kristina Fogg said...

hey josh im kinda scared of your death and metal idea. but its interesting so go for it.

vittoriabravetti said...

hey tim, do dreams in country, it sounds cool and i like country

Kristen Tenglin said...

Perspective is a good idea for modern music Tori!

Kristina Fogg said...

meg i feel that money and rap is a good idea but may be too specific and you may not find a lot of songs

Kristina Fogg said...

amanda, heartbreak in alternative rock is a good idea. i was thinking about that one too.

Tbrown said...

Kristen! hi, umm yeah i know all their songs have to do with dreams like "My Wish" so It will probably be a good genre to do.

Ariel said...

Agony/Pain in Alternative Rock

Suffering in Hard Rock

Feeling in Country

Josh said...

sean, i like your idea you should look into a local band called Horseplay.

Kristina Fogg said...

jamie, heartbreak in metal is a good idea. You should choose that.

Griff said...

emptyness in rock

failure in rap

Kristen Tenglin said...

Maybe optimism in modern music Nicolette? Or happiness in modern music?

Meghan McAlpine said...

kristina and tori, i completly agree with you! it is scary! But i love your ideas for theme-genre

Tbrown said...

Yes Kristina I agree with you, That is such a good song by Lady Antebellum

Ariel said...

love in country* not feelings

David A. said...

Thanks Kristina!

seanworrall said...

kristina, i think you should do struggle in rap because that would be gr8, see u in film too

David A. said...

Sean, your idea is very different and it is a really good idea!

KBTenglin said...

Nicolette, I think a good idea for a song would be "Over the rainbow" I dont know what genre that would be but it might work

Meghan McAlpine said...

kristina, i love your idea of love in alternative rock. You could get alot of examples!

Tbrown said...

I think another good idea is grief in musical types of music. There is this song that I am auditioning with at college and it's called "Empty Chairs at Empty tables" it is from Les Mes and a lot of songs in the musical have to do with grief.

Kristen Tenglin said...

For anyone thinking about doing revenge in country music.."Before He Cheats" by Carrie Underwood is a good song for that!

vittoriabravetti said...

im doing love and heartbreakn in country music, any ideas? or perspective in modern music, ideass?

KBTenglin said...

Kristina, I think you could get a lot in love in alternative rock, its different..

vittoriabravetti said...

kristina tough love in alternative rock is a good idea, but it seems hard to find songs

Ariel said...

KB your giving good songs as examples!

suzanne. said...

Another idea I am thinking about is "Love and Romance in Hip Hip"

do you guys have any ideas?!

Meghan McAlpine said...

tim, dreams in country is a wicked good idea! Its different from all the others.

Tbrown said...

Confusion (why someone is confused)in Punk rock could be another one

Kristina Fogg said...

I've offically decided that im going to do "trial and tribulations in alternative rock". Any ideas for songs or artists??

Tbrown said...

I'm realizing that I need to listen to more genres of music, I listen to too much country.

Mike A said...

optimism in reggae. good bands?

Kristen Tenglin said...

Tim, "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts is good for dreams in country music.

Kristina Fogg said...

sean, i think a lot of people are doing struggle in rap so i think i may not do that because i wanna be different :/

Tbrown said...

I am pretty certain that i am going to do dreams in country lol

Kristen Tenglin said...

For anyone doing heartbreak in country, "Leave the Pieces" by the Wreckers would work

Tbrown said...

AHH Kristen that's such a good idea revenge in country there are a lot of songs out there

vittoriabravetti said...

meghan, i dont think it matters, a ton of people are doing something in country, i think he said to just change the wording

Scott Coleman said...

im feelin
1. need in music from the last 30 years
2. symbolism in rock
3. imagery in 20th century music

Love in country "All I ever wanted" by: Chuck Wicks

Ok, I really want to do Rock or Modern Rock for my music genre. I have narrowed down my themes to
1. Lost Love
2. Suffering
3. Anti-War and Protest

seanworrall said...

everyone should do greatness in horseplay

Tbrown said...

A good song for love in country could be "Waitin On a Women" by Brad Paisley

David A. said...

I think I might change my theme-genre combo to hope in showtunes.

Nicolette Graham said...

Kristen, I'm trying to stay away from modern music. Though optimism in modern music or happiness would probably work. I'll probably discard optimism as my theme.

KB, I heard the song "Over the Rainbow" recently. I am not sure of the genre of the song either. But when I heard it I thought that inspiration would be a good theme.

Kristen Tenglin said...

Good idea Kajsa! I like that you are using loss too

KBTenglin said...

Anyone doing anything to do with Rock, The Beatles has a lot of different stuff

vittoriabravetti said...

jamie, your ideas are all good, any of them would be good choices

David A. said...

Tim, grief in showtunes would be a really good theme genre combo.

Chris DeSousa said...

Idolatry in Rap

Power in Rap

Alcoholism in Country

David A. said...

Scott, I think that symobolism in rock would be a really good theme genre combo for you to do, and it would probably be pretty easy.

Erica Callahan said...

i want to do turn of the century music. any good theme ideas?

Kristen Tenglin said...

Good idea David!

Kristen Tenglin said...

Taylor, those are all good ideas and I really like the anti-war and protest but it might be too narrow.

Erica Callahan said...

Erica Callahan said...

taylor, i like all of your themes & the anti-war and protest is different

Kristina Fogg said...

KBTenglin said...

Lost In this moment by Big & Rich for Love in Country

KBTenglin said...

Love Remembers by Craig Morgan

KBTenglin said...

Chris, power in rap sounds good you will be able to find a lot with that one

David A. said...

Suzanne, a good song for Heartache in Country would be, "Whiskey and You" by Tim McGraw.

22569 said...

Suzanne I think that is a great idea. I strongly recommend Keny Chensy's song "Summer Time" for heartache in country theme. For love in country theme go with Taylor Swift's "Our Song" or "Love Song".For Guilt in Punk Rock theme go with P!nk's "So What" or Queen's "Killer Queen".

Kristina, I would recommend either Eminem's "Mocking Bird" or Little Wayne's "Make It Rain" for your struggle in rap theme.

David u should try Taylor Swift's "Should've Said No".

Kristen Tenglin said...

thanks Suzanne I think that is what I am going to do

Kristen Tenglin said...

maybe happiness in turn of the century music Erica? that would probably have a lot of options

Kristen Tenglin said...

I like the idea of power in rap chris

Kristina Fogg said...

chris, i think power in rap would be a good idea. No one has this topic so it would be a good choice

Meghan McAlpine said...

I think im going to do storytelling in country! I know its a vague topic but i think i'll get a lot of songs! Any ideas? ...minus "love story" lol

Meghan McAlpine said...

Erica! its a good idea to do turn of the century music! If i think of any good themes i'll let you know!

Meghan McAlpine said...

Ohhh! thanks tori i didnt even know that!

Erica Callahan said...

Tbrown said...
