The Sound of Madness Reading Challenge is back! I’m probably the only one who is excited by this, but oh well. I had a lot of fun with both coming up with prompts (all music-related!) and then fulfilling them throughout the year in 2021, so I decided to have another go at it. I had a couple of walks down memory lane while I put this post together, so I hope you’ll create your own ones by reading books and listening to great music this year!
I hardly take part in reading challenges in general, but as I was creating The Ultimate Tour Experience for Storytellers on Tour, I had way too much fun with coming up with prompts. So much so, that I kept thinking into the night about songs and bands that would make awesome prompts. The next day The Sound of Madness Reading Challenge came to life. Titled after an also great song by Shinedown. Now with a final update!
In the renewed Music Diggin’ Friday I’m going to write about all kinds of music related stuff. Lists, new releases, concerts, and whatever shit that comes to mind.
Wait. What happens with time? Someone speed it up! It can’t be November already! Where is my October??? Give me a moment while I panic, will you?
Okay, I’m better now. I’m a bit behind on posts because I had become sick after returning from the UK, so a review and my post about said UK trip will be up later this week, thus they will count as November posts. So, let’s see what I had in store for you in October:
Bon Jovi is one of those bands I don’t particularly like, but even so managed to have an impact on me. There are about 10 of their songs I listen to when I feel a sudden urge to put them on. It’s My Life is one of those songs everyone knows and I just can’t help myself dancing and singing along when I hear it. For some reason I thought it was older, but turns out it was released in 2000. In retrospect, it’s already 18 years old. Damn. I still love it so who cares. Also, it has a pretty simple message which applies no matter how old you are.
