Lyrical Challenge!

http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/data/500/lyrical1.jpg

Welcome to July’s Lyrical Challenge!!!

In this challenge, I will be giving you a song, or an assignment for a song and your challenge if you choose to accept it is to create a layout using the lyrics or spirit of the song for the inspiration for your layout!

Everyone that plays gets a posting BONUS! Yup…that’s something FREE!! FREE is good!! Great way to build up your stash!!

This month I am going to give you something a little bit harder than last month! For this month’s challenge I would like for you to go to Billboard.com (http://www.billboard.com/charts/hot-100#/charts/hot-100
) and go to the chart for the day and year of your birth, it will give you the top ten, pick one of those songs and make your layout inspired by that song!

**When you get to the site, click on CHARTS, then HOT100...from there you should see VIEW CHART ARCHIVES, click on that and then you can choose the year and date....it does only go to 1957....so if you need a year before that you may have to do a google search something like "top 10 songs of 1946" to get a list, you probably won't be able to get the actual day of your birth but the year will be great!!! Hope that helps!!***

If you have problems...you can always PM me and give me the information and I will try to find it for you!!! I promise I wont reveal any dates! :-)

You can find lyrics at Lyrics.com (http://www.lyrics.com/) and I found another site for Oldie Lyrics (http://www.oldielyrics.com) but most times when I am looking for lyrics, I just do a google search with the song name and put lyrics in there too and it will take you right to the song usually.



Good Luck!! Can’t wait to see what you all come up with!

they might be having trouble with the website, I tried to go to it 5 times and never could find archives, and it kept saying there was an error and it could not load.

I had the same problem, but I found it through google and then I got the website.
Type your year in with the magazines, choose the date nearest to your birthday and scroll to where the Best Selling Pop EP's are ;-)

As I found it: I will join this Challenge!!
(now find time to do it...)

What a fun challenge. Although it also made me feel old because those songs are all considered "Classic Rock" now. Anyway, here's my layout:

Oh, you young gals.... LOL....:laugh: :wink: Don't mind sharing my age... was born in late 1939. One of my favorite song lyrics was written in 1939... Deep Purple. Also happens to be one of my favorite colors, too. :love-smiley-011:

Have to give special thanks to Studio4 and the daily download on 7/23... Love Letters page stacker and word art. I didn't have a kit by one of the GDS designers in deep purple. But I was able to use the page stacker for this. I created the deep purple background behind the photo.
