…Er, I mean by Sophocles, of course. But those of us exposed to Dr. Lehrer’s version in our impressionable youth (I’m talking to you, Jane and Kathie) will always find this song running through our heads whenever we hear the title of Sophocles’ immortal tragedy. For those of you who have never heard this song, prepare to have your lives changed forever.
Wasn’t that uplifting and culturally enriching?
WRITING PROMPT: Write a theme song for your latest work or work-in-progress. If you have none, write a theme song for a famous story which has no theme song. The exercise will encourage you to isolate the main point or emotion of the work. Unlike Dr. Lehrer, please endeavor to isolate the point or emotion which is SUPPOSED to be the main one.
