Whaddup, peeps? As you may, or may not, know, I haven't written much this past few weeks. In fact, I haven't written anything in the past two weeks. So, I am hosting a fun challenge for you. Keep in mind that this is not a contest, just a fun challenge.

The point of this challenge is to stretch your brain a bit. Here is what I would like you to do. Below is a list of songs to choose from (there are more than plenty). I would like you to pick a song you may not know well or even haven't heard before. (If neither of those pertain to you, that's okay, just pick a song.)

Write a short story or a poem (NO NOVELS) about the song, using the SONG TITLE as your title. Again, this is not a contest, so there are no winners. Charlie Sheen did enough of that last year for us. Let me know what song you pick in the comments below and then let me know when you have something up.

Oh…. But here's the fun part. The first three commenters are allowed to give me a song OF THEIR CHOICE (not from the songs below) to partake in this challenge as well.
