Make a Request of a Musical Master (RAR)

Postby Crossroads Inc. » 2012-10-28 08:32am

You get a ticket for a one time meeting with a Musical Master living or dead Any time perior, any artist. Beethoven, Bach, Brahms, Armstrong, Lennon... Anyone you can think of.

You may summon them and request them to creat one song for you. You can ask to remake some existing work and turn it into something of their style, or to make some work from scratch.

Who would you pick? And what music would you have created?

Can I ask Mozart to finish his Requiem?

Assuming retroactive time travel, I'd be tempted to have Wagner, or any other virulently antisemitic great german or Austrian composer compose something along the lines of "Greatness of the Jews". Just to piss off WW2 Germany or Antisemites :P.

I would probably commission Basil Poledouris to compose an epic theme for bottle washing and diaper changing.

I have Wagner do the music for a Batman movie.

Robert Johnson to make a song about Xenu and Scientology just to fuck with the celebes, and the people who think he sold his soul to play the bnlues....

The scariest folk song lyrics are "My Boy Grew up to be just like me" from cats in the cradle by Harry Chapin
