I must set you a task, so that you can prove yourself worthy of my daughter's hand....
I've posted this list on the Rate Your Music site. This is the introduction to the list:
"This list is part challenge and part experiment. I'm looking for help, from the RYM hive mind, to collect titles of songs and albums or band names that are very visually stimulating and produce mental images of non-existent objects or imaginary animals.
Assigning a name to music that is picturesque or cinematic must require a great deal of thought or inspiration as evocative as the music itself. I want to focus on a subset of these unusual and vivid types of titles. Can you recommend a band name, song or album title that conjures up not a mental painting or sense of place but an imaginary object; one that with a little creativeness could cross over into the real world and conceivably be carved in wood or stone?
I've only recently started to think about this theme. Unfortunately some great title examples, that first inspired thoughts along these lines, now seem to elude me. Below are some lesser samples to plant a seed and provoke your thoughts. Hopefully with everyone's input we'll be able to come up with much more evocative and lucid specimens.
Hopefully these mental images aren't too individually specific and become "lost in translation". I'm curious to see if there is a "language" for imaginary 3D visualization. So please, suggest away :-)"
I'd love to hear any examples you guys can think of. Assuming that any suggestions offered here exist in the RYM database, I will add it to the source list; and certainly give your credit for your input.
