Make a song list

Printer-friendly version

We used to make mixed tapes, or receive them, and they usually had to do with close friendship and love. Make a new kind of list: a Spotify list or tape, if you like of songs (of song titles) for someone who has hurt you. Let the titles speak for themselves: readers can look up the songs if they like. You are of course free to make a tape for your crush or best friend. These are not simply good songs but ones which say something about what you are going through (in the first instance) or the nature of your friendship or crazy love. This is a list poem assignment, so be sure to familiarize yourself with some list poems (like "What Is Poetry" by Susan Holbrook), but not too many. I'm positive you know way more about what's happening in music than most people. You've got this.
