Are you really good at yelling out suggestions at improv shows? Then today's Eight Forty-Eight is for you!

Quick write a song! Okay, you don't have to do just have to give us an idea for a song.‚  This morning, our friends at Eight Forty-Eight are hosting a small group of musicians who like to compose right on the spot. They just need you to throw out an idea for them to turn into music.‚  And they've turned to the blog reader to come up with the suggestion. It's just like an improv-comedy show.‚  But you don't get to yell it out. And it's not something dirty. Send an idea, a theme, even just a word. And, if you want to go one step further, tell us the behind that idea. Just leave it in the comments below. We'll make sure they use one of our suggestions. I'll go first: Roller derby. Make a song about roller derby.
