Well, my best friend Travis
He's started Lyrics by Hand over on tumblr. Isn't he awesome?
I think Lyrics by Hand is a pretty stinkin' sweet idea, and I'll tell you why (as if you could stop me): A person's handwriting is distinctive, and so is his/her musical tastes. So by hand writing the lyrics to our favorite songs, it's quite the reflection on our personality and identity. It's all about what makes us, us. It's a bit PostSecret-like in the way it can define us, or at least a part of us.
The Regina Spektor one was my first submission! Now, you should too! Email a photo to LyricsByHand [at] tumblr [dot] com and they'll queue up! The only rules are:
- They must be handwritten.
- Attribute the song and musician
- Keep it short, no one wants to read the entire lyrics to a song they’ve never heard.
- No vulgar lyrics, please.
