(Okay, I've never made a topic like this before, and I'm really anxious so I'm sorry if I break any Tapas forum etiquette during the process :o )
I posted a thread like this on another writing site, and it was a lot of fun, so I thought I'd try it out here!
The idea is that you post a brief description of a character of yours, and other people reply with songs that THEY think might suit the character. It's fun because you get to often get songs in styles or genres that you don't normally listen to, and can discover some really great new songs to add to your character playlists! (Because I'm pretty sure most of us have character playlists, haha)
Once it gets going, make sure to try to respond to somebody else with a song for their character, don't just drop your character and leave, so that everyone can get included.
Person A: "My character is Bob, he's just been turned into a vampire and is full of self loathing after going into a feeding frenzy and eating his own dog. The tone of the story is dark and serious."
Person B: "@PersonA, how about 'Monster' by Imagine Dragons? Or 'Oh Where Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone' might work too! (include youtube links if you're really nice)
My character is Alice, and she's a workaholic janitor on a space station..."
Mention if you'd rather not receive songs with excessive swearing or explicit references, and please respect people's wishes. But don't request specific music genres, get excited to be introduced to completely new stuff!
Edit: And feel free to post longer character descriptions! I gave short examples because I'm lazy, but the more background info you give, the better match of a song you're likely to get!
