Theme for Blogging from A to Z April Challenge 2012

For this year's Blogging from A to Z Challenge, the theme here at Ellie's Couch will be music videos.

Posts will be arranged alphabetically by recording artist. Those using a first and last name will be alphabetized according to first name so that the titles will be completely alphabetical.

Several musical styles and decades will be represented, including classic hard rock and modern alternative rock. Many of the videos tell some type of story and can even be watched with no sound if desired. I won't be including any that are simply a musical performance; there has to be something more to each video for additional entertainment value.

I'll also give a few comments about each one, such as the background or what to look for.

Hello. I found you through the A to Z Challenge. I like your site and I see that you entered 3 blogs into the Challenge. Good Luck. I can't imagine trying to keep up with all of them.

Hi, it's me again. I have an award for you at my blog.

I've been preparing for quite a while, so I'm hoping it will go well. I made sure I had all my topics before entering this blog in the challenge.

I'm always a fan of the theme of music in the A to Z. I'll be doing 2 of my blogs with music videos as well.

I'm going to link to this post in the next A to Z Blog Summary next Saturday.

Thanks, Lee. I'm looking forward to seeing which videos you've chosen.

Geoff Maritz said...

I agree with having more than just a musical production as visuals. Music tells a story, now please all music video producers, tell a visual story too. Following to see what you come up with, Geoff.

Hi Ellie! Sounds intriguing. Can't wait to see what you're going to show case. I'm also writing about music (artists that have influenced me in my own song writing, more specifically). Great to see another music lover! And great to meet you. :o) New follower!

Eliza Wynn said...

Thank you, Geoff! So many videos are just performances of the song. I like a few of them, but in general, I want to see something else.

Eliza Wynn said...

Thank you, Jessica! I believe I'm chosen some highly entertaining videos. :-)

Thanks, Pa Ul! I tried to go to your blog, but it says it's been removed. I'll keep trying, just in case it's a glitch.

Hello there from the A-Z Challenge. Three blogs! Holy cow. I'm hoping a don't flame out with one! Of course I will be traveling halfway through. Curious to see what you come up with!

Jess said...

Yikes! Three blogs? I feel myself hyperventilating for you. :)
