A'ight, so if you watch my art, you know I'm on a Jem kick. I did Jem, Shana, and Raya in EQG style. I needa do Aja and Kimber. Problem is, I can't find a song that fits the mood I want to paint them in. I need a lead guitar song and a keyboard song that fit each girl the way All About That Bass fit Shana and Boom Clap fit Raya.
So far, all I've really latched onto for Aja is "Money for Nothin" (Cause that's the way to do it. Play that guitar on the MTV.) But... While __I__ like the song, is it too old to be recognized by today's audience? (THAT WAS A PINNACLE SONG, I'LL HAVE YOU KNOW!) I like Linkin Park's leads, but their [lyrics] messages don't really suit the attitude I want Aja to have. I feel like I'm glancing right past some beautiful gem, on the radio, but I can't figure it out.
For Kimber, I'm back and forth between Rixton's Me And My Broken Heart - but the keyboard is only prominent in the opening, and in the music video, none of the band members are actually playing one. (And anyways, it's written by the guy who writes for Marron 5, so I'd almost rather use one of their songs as inspiration for a Kimber pic.) Or, the second runner up for Kimber in my head is Coldplay's Sky Full of Stars. The keyboard in that one is simplistic and backed up by the rest of the musical ensemble, but it's there, it's prevalent, and it's catchy. Cause when you think "Keyboards in a Jem song" what do you think? I think that one in the World Hunger Shindig episode that opens and closes on Kimber playing keys.
So yes, any suggestions, please send them my way. I need musical inspiration of the current sort. Otherwise we might end up with a picture of Aja rocking out to COME SAIL AWAY! and Kimber doing Pictures at an Exhibition".
