Seriously, though, I'm not requesting anything too weird or hard to do (I hope!)
A few little things - I tend to prefer slash/femmeslash to het if you put any romance in there. And with the exception of Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner (which is a dark piece whichever way you look at it, but also amusing in its twisted way), I tend to prefer cute, happy and/or funny to dark and angsty. And I would like stories or art based on the characters in the songs, or in the case of the Ramones songs, the artists (Joey is my favorite Ramone but I love all the guys) rather than OCs. But otherwise, take a look at the prompts and see where they lead your imagination! Have fun! :)
1. Pinhead - The Ramones
This song has an autobiographical element, outlined in the link below:
I'd adore something based on either the Ramones themselves and their reaction to the Freaks film, or something about the pinheads in Freaks and how adorably sweet they were, or the adventures of the Ramones and their onstage pinhead... anything that would fit the theme and be cute, basically! :)
2. Schlitzie - Rich Hillen Jr
I'd love something celebrating Schlitzie - his life, his career, how beloved and sweet and innocent he was... anything along these lines. More biographical info can be found about Schlitzie here:
3. Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner - Warren Zevon
This song intrigues me no end. What was Roland's relationship with Van Owen like before the murder, and why was Van Owen the one the CIA got to kill Roland? What motivates Roland to keep going after he got his revenge? What is the supernatural force that animates him? So much to explore in the song itself!
4. I Wanna Be Sedated - The Ramones.
"I Wanna Be Sedated" was written by Joey Ramone. In an interview about the song, Joey explains the chorus:
"It's a road song. I wrote it in 1977, through to 78. Well, Danny Fields was our first manager and he would work us to death. We would be on the road 360 days a year, and we went over to England, and we were there at Christmas time, and in Christmas time, London shuts down. There's nothing to do, nowhere to go. Here we were in London for the first time in our lives, and me and Dee Dee Ramone were sharing a room in the hotel, and we were watching The Guns of Navarone. So there was nothing to do, I mean, here we are in London finally, and this is what we are doing, watching American movies in the hotel room."
This song, too, is autobiographical. How might all this have felt for Joey? Was there a funny side? Did creating the song make the experience all worth it?
5. Carbona Not Glue - The Ramones
Another partially autobiographical piece, explained here:
I'd like something that explains how the concept of "try something more poisonous!" (or abusing substances at all) was not meant seriously, and that features the Ramones having fun.
6. Spirit In My House - Joey Ramone
I'm craving something funny rather than scary for this one - I like the idea of Joey (or all the Ramones if you like, even though this is a solo track of Joey's) regarding the spirit(s) or demons as common household pests to be shooed with a broom or sprayed like bugs or chased - you name it! Go wild! :) And since Joey loved cats, and cats loved Joey, perhaps a friendly kitty could be aiding him in his quest against the dastardly spooks? That would be the cutest thing ever! :)
Schlitzie Ramone. :)
