Songs in Haiku

This post is a little bit of shameless self promotion.

Our other blog project, Songs in Haiku, is a site where each post summarizes a song's lyrics in a three line verse. It's a cooperative blog with Dianne and Pat. If you haven't been there lately, you should check it out as Songs in Haiku got some enhancement a couple weeks ago. Besides providing a link to the actual song lyrics, Dianne thought it would be good idea to add links for facts about the song and a video. She thought the video would be a nice addition especially if you're not familiar with the song.

I thought it was a good idea, but didn't think we'd find many videos. Boy was I wrong! Isn't the Internet wonderful? Nearly every post has links to facts and to a video for the song. Some of the videos are very interesting and clever. A great example is this video for the song "Mad World" picked by Pat. It's a very creative and well thought out video. Other videos are actual performances videos such as the link in the post for "What a Wonderful World." There are some songs where we couldn't find an official video or a performance, but have found the tune associated with other video. A funny example of that is the video link with the post for "Copacabana."

Finally, thanks to Erika Jean, I requested a review of the Songs blog at the Untwisted Vortex site. Read the review here. The review was actually pretty good. Thanks to RT for taking the time to visit the site and provide the review.
