    Default 262. You Want It Darker.

    Hi everyone.
    This week your challenge is threefold.

    1. SONGS OF THE NIGHT
    record any song that by way of lyric and/or title is reflective of the night.
    2. YOU WANT IT DARKER
    sing me something written by Leonard Cohen.
    3. SLEEP EVADES ME
    write me a song or a poem or a short story that in some way is reflective of the night.

    usual timeframe applies.
    please no more than three entries.
    you can mix and match across the 3 categories in whatsoever fashion you choose, and record and present them however you so desire.
    i will offer some gifts to the performers my favourite entries. the gifts will relate to music and poetry.

    thank you to all seasonistas past and present for making this thing what it is.
    i hope you enjoy the week everybody.
    playlist will be online after the first entries come in.

    you want it darker playlist

    This song came to mind when I read the theme, so I had a go at it.
    This is my take on Patti Smith - Because the night.

    In case someone wants a U2 connection, here is a version of Bono with Bruce Springsteen (it seems to be their song ;-)).

    Hear Ye! hear Ye!

    I am inaugurating a new rule aka Thornton/TCK of seasons past.

    If a host decrees a particular theme fits a certain seasonista like a glove, they shall be exempt from the limitations per posting as decreed in a season OP.

    With this in mind I hereby declare xommen, pabrizzer, wee_ginga_yin and turtledrum exempt from the above.

    Complaints and etc may be made directly to management or host.

    The above shall heretofore be known as the Eugene rule.
