From Big things Little things grow

Postby Aldebaran » Sat Aug 12, 2006 8:21 am

I just had this idea for a theme song for the site. To make this work, I need ideas from as many people as possible and I'll try to compile them into lyrics. As a group effort, I think it would mean something in terms of everybody contributing, and would be a great motivator.

I thought I'd base it on the Paul Kelly song, but with a twist. The chorus would be:

"From big things little things grow" (x2)

To get this rolling, you need to answer the question, Why do I want to lose weight? Keep it to a one liner like:

"I want to be healthy"
"I want to be slim"

Just contribute if you think it's worthwhile. I'll include all responses that I can get to rhyme.

Cool 8)

I'm watching "Rage" at the moment and doing my workout... then heading off to see "The Boy from Oz".

I am sure that I will get some ideas from all of that :D

That's a good start. I thought I'd start with the wanna do's, then the gunnado's :) and maybe have a few I used to be's as we get near the end.

I might search through the forum for some ideas too. If it all works out, I'll get my son's band to record it and post it somewhere as an mp3 - On site if the site owners approve. Then you can download it to your ipod and use it for motivation.

So keep the wannado's coming :)

(just write what you really want to happen and I'll fix up the rhyme. This could take a week or three)
