Challenge " These were the rules:
1. Set the names of your ancestors to the music of any song. It can be
any number of names, any song. Just remember to mention what song
you are using so we can all "sing along" as we read!
2. Publish your efforts on your blog and send me the link. If you don't have
a blog( and you really should, you know, they're easy and fun to do) then send
me your song in a comment to this blog.
Recently I've started to think of this as a genealogy version of "America's
Got Talent", only I call it "Geneabloggers Have Talent". The bloggers who
took part in the Challenge prove that with their wit and sense of humor. It's
not easy coming up with genealogy lyrics to a song but the participants came
up with posts that made me laugh and sing along.(although I did the singing
silently in my head, so I wouldn't scare my neighbors.) So, ladies and
gentlemen, grab your popcorn and favorite beverage, sit back, read, and enjoy
the show. Then please leave comments on each blog to let the bloggers know
how much you appreciated their songs!
First up is Dorene of the Graveyard Rabbit of Sandusky Bay cleverly reworks
the classic French folk song "Frere Jacques" to honor members of her Dad's
Moody Blues. Then I lost the lyrics for the Wilburys' song, so I had to
redo it from scratch. You can read the result at Just Make Up The Lyrics:
"On My Paternal Line"
And my thanks to all that took part in "The Second Genea-Bloggers' Just Make
Up Some Lyrics Challenge "
