I had so much fun making my Venn Diagram the other day that I decided to make some more (click on the images to view them larger)

Here's one for
Mahalia Jackson

And here's one for
Damien Rice

(*I just want to point out that when I say 'sad' I mean unhappy, I'm not being all Irish and equating the perfectly reasonable emotion of sadness with being a loser)

And Lastly
Jay Z

I had a great idea for one for Jennifer Lopez but I got so sick of researching her lyrics that I gave up......the themes were 'I'm a normaller like you' (Jenny From the Block, I'm Real...) and 'The music in clubs is always too quiet' (play my favourite song, let's get loud...)

Venn Diagram

This blog has made me realise that all my songs fall into three categories. Ok so I haven't sat down and thought through every one of my tunes yet but I did make myself a quick little Venn Diagram* with a few of my tunes in there (click to view it larger if you don't have your reading glasses on)

Look at that big blank spot in the crossover section between pink and blue! Gotta sort that out. And the crossover between pink and green is getting a bit crowded, but how could it not be, emotional projection is such a good topic. I debated over where to put a few of them, like 'Light Fires' could also go in the green/blue crossover section (I'm sure someone who speaks math could tell me what the real name of the 'crossover section' is).

*I like Venn Diagrams. My first ever gig (playing my own material I mean) was a collaboration with Banbha Mc Cann called Venn Diagram in the Back Loft.
