Canonical Dance Party

I’ve been playing around a bit with setting poetry to music, especially canonical works that incorporate rhyme or rhythm in a way that offer themselves as being more friendly to the definition of “song” in a pop sense.

There are poems rendered here that you will recognize pretty easily: “Prufrock,” “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” and “We Real Cool.” But there are some others, like “Cut” by Sylvia Plath, which might be new to some people.

Well, if you are having a party, here is some poetry to dance to. I am officially taking requests, so now is your chance! Just reach out to and suggest a poem that needs a little more bass. If you prefer to go directly to Soundcoud, boom:

Tap your feet and enjoy.
