Lyrical Inspiration Tuesdays 09 – Arctic Monkeys

Do you ever hear a song and just instantly think, “That is SOOOOO cool”?  That’s exactly how I felt about “Do I Wanna Know?” by The Arctic Monkeys, the first time I heard it, and the feeling still remains to this day.  I just think this song is SO cool.  I love the riff.  I love the lyrics.  I love everything about this song.  I think I love this song so much that I would probably include it in my top 20 songs of all time.

I’m not quite convinced that I made the right font choice on this graphic… honestly, I made it in a bit of a hurry, after having a bit of red wine with dinner.  I might have to come back to it at some point.  My font choice for this one was Bellerose and Rochester.  Fonts that I normally really enjoy, but I don’t think it conveys the coolness of this song!

Either way – hope you enjoy the tune!  Come back for more lyrical inspirations next week!



Lyrical Inspiration Tuesdays 08 – Twin Shadow

Today marks two months of Lyrical Inspiration Tuesdays posts here at Superflash Creative! Yay! I’ve loved this project so far.  It’s a great way for me to get a little bit creative in a quick and easy way… and to explore some new tunes!  I was feeling a little uninspired to write this blog, so I posted a status on Facebook asking for my friends’ current and all time favourite songs.  30+ replies later, I have a playlist of all kinds of new tunes, including the one below:

As I began listening to the songs that my friends suggested, Twin Shadow‘s song, “To The Top” instantly jumped out at me.  I love the 80’s ballad throwback sound of this song.  It sounds like it should be in St. Elmo’s Fire, or a Chicago b-side’s album or something, and I love it!  I’ve listened to it a few times and it definitely makes me smile!  Have you made any musical discoveries that you’re excited about lately?

Fonts used in this graphic are Little Trouble Girl and KG Skinny Latte – which I actually suggested as a font pairing in my Favourite Fonts for Fall post a couple of months ago.  I think they look pretty cool together!

If anyone’s curious about the playlist I made with all the new music recommendations, you can find it here at Spotify! I’m looking forward to adding more songs to this list as more suggestions roll in!
