Weekend Challenge: Tom, Dick or Harry?

This week I have a selection of song titles from Tom, Dick (well, Richard, but who am I to quibble?) and Harry for you to choose from for inspiration!

I have 15 titles from each of Tom Petty, Richard Thompson and Harry Chapin. Now, these song-writers/artists don't have to be familiar to you, nor do you have to know the songs! Like Sharpie did a couple of weeks ago with the ol' Jimmy B, I have picked out some fairly well-known songs by the gentlemen in question that I think may inspire you to create at least 300 words/1 banner/3 icons or more, regardless of your knowledge of the artists!

If you succeed in posting something before midnight Sunday (in your own local time) and link it back to me here, I will reward you with at least an icon/drabble/100 words in a WIP, in whatever fandom or style you choose. If it's not one I'm familiar with, you'll most likely get an icon or I'll do the 100 words in whichever of my WIPs I feel inspired to, but otherwise I'll do my best! Bear in mind I do like a prompt to kick me off for drabbles - preferably a word or a short sentence/phrase that may give ME ideas!

Now, to business: Hit me with a comment and let me know if you want Tom, Dick or Harry; give me a number or numbers from 1-15 as well, and I'll give you the corresponding song-title! What you do with these creatively is up to you - fandomwise or any other way! And if the title alone doesn't inspire you, try googling the lyrics or checking out YouTube for the whole song to see if that gives you a little extra to work with! Good luck! ;-)

Let's see if I get this right.

Tom: 6
Jun. 24th, 2016 08:36 am (UTC)
Spot on! You get:

You Don't Know How It Feels

Good luck! (love your icon, btw!)

This sounds rather cool! May I have two?

Tom #13

Harry #13

Thanks! Of course you may!

Tom 13 is Change of Heart

and Harry 13 is Dance Band on the Titanic

Have fun!

I now have the soundtrack for Kiss Me Kate on repeat in my skull. :D

Much as I'm not a fan of his, I have to go with Tom #1, because of TOM. *points to icon*
Jun. 24th, 2016 11:25 pm (UTC)
Ha! And that's a good Tom reason!

Here you go:

Stop Draggin' My Heart Around

Let me know if you need to change! ;-)
Jun. 24th, 2016 03:21 pm (UTC)
I would like Harry, #3 please. Thanks in advance!
Jun. 24th, 2016 11:26 pm (UTC)
No problem!

Yours is:

Well, I am surprised to find a singer I haven't ever heard of. I might have to get to know this Richard Thompson, so...

Dick 15, please.

(and yes, I'm sliding right by the blatantly obvious joke, lol......)
Jun. 24th, 2016 11:28 pm (UTC)
I am too - although in all honesty, Richard is more famous in the UK and I don't know him at all well myself.

And you get:

Dimming Of The Day

If that doesn't work for you, let me know and we'll try another!

Probably best to slide by... ;-P
Jun. 24th, 2016 05:02 pm (UTC)
I would like Dick 8, please
Jun. 24th, 2016 11:29 pm (UTC)
Certainly, my dear:

A Heart Needs A Home

Good luck with it! ;-)
Jun. 24th, 2016 06:11 pm (UTC)
I would like Tom #9 'cause Tom Petty (and I'm married to an Indiana boy so...)!
Jun. 24th, 2016 11:30 pm (UTC)
Oh well, then! ;-)

Try this one:

Mary Jane's Last Dance

And feel free to swap if it doesn't work for you! ;-)

May I have Number 1 for Tom, Dick and Harry please?
Jun. 24th, 2016 11:32 pm (UTC)
Of course! here you go:

Tom: Stop Draggin' My Heart Around

Dick: Waltzing's For Dreamers

Harry: Cats in the Cradle

Hopefully one or more will inspire you! ;-)

May I have Number 5 for Tom, Dick and Harry please?
Jun. 24th, 2016 11:36 pm (UTC)
Of course! here you go:

Tom: Don't Come Around Here No More

Dick: Strange Affair

Harry: Circle

I hope at least one is useful! ;-)
Jun. 25th, 2016 09:58 am (UTC)
Harry, it sucks. But I'd like 6 and 7 for him, if you don't mind.
Jun. 25th, 2016 11:31 am (UTC)
Ha! Harry did try, though!

Anyway, here you go:

#6: Any Old Kind of Day
#7: I Wanna Learn a Love Song

Have fun! ;-)

Jun. 25th, 2016 03:15 pm (UTC)
Could I get Tom, #7, please?
Jun. 26th, 2016 05:34 am (UTC)
Apologies for the delay!

Here you go:


Let me know if you need to swap!
