Welcome to Resurrection Jukebox, a music writing challenge brought to you by "The Soundtrackers Group! This activity is held every October and celebrates the Halloween spirit by conjuring the spirits of artists both past and surpassed. If you think you have what it takes to delve into the dark history of music, read on!

How It Works

Each day's entry must respond to the prompt, and include the following:

         *Bullet* Song title and artist
         *Bullet* A link to a YouTube video or other site where we can listen to the track

Qualifying songs must be a song of your choice, and that song must be EITHER:

         *Bullet* By an artist who is deceased, OR
         *Bullet* By an artist who is defunct, disbanded, or no longer performing

Additional Resources

         *Bullet* List of the Deaths in Rock & Roll by Wikipedia  
         *Bullet* The Dead Rock Stars Club  


         *Bullet* The activity runs until October 31st at 11:59PM WDC time
         *Bullet* All entries submitted to the forum after the contest ends will be disqualified
         *Bullet* You may use either book/blog item entries or individual static items
         *Bullet* You must create a new item or book/blog entry for EACH entry
         *Bullet* You must submit your entries by posting individual links to each entry in the forum below
         *Bullet* Please note which day(s) they're for in the message subject (e.g., Day 1 entry, Day 1-3 entries, etc.)
         *Bullet* You are free to post entries individually or with multiple entries in the same post
         *Bullet* You may submit more than one entry per day, as long as they are thorough entries

Please send all donations to "The Soundtrackers Group (Group #1979333), or submit them via a post in the forum below.


For all the following prompts, feel free to link any song by the artist you've chosen: a personal favorite, their most popular hit, an underrated gem... whatever you think gives us the best sense of the band:

DAY 1. Which artist would you most like to see come back to life/reunite for a new album?

DAY 2. Which artist would you love to see come back to life/reunite for one last concert/live event?

DAY 3. Which artist do you think died/disbanded before they achieved their full potential?

DAY 4. Which artist do you think went out on top, at the absolute height of their popularity?

DAY 5. Which artist are you actually kind of glad isn't making music or performing anymore?

DAY 6. Which artist deserves a posthumous Grammy or other major music award?

DAY 7. Which artist do you think is overrated because of their untimely death/disbanding?

DAY 8. DOUBLE UP: Which dead/disbanded artist would you bring back for a one-time collaboration... and which current artist would they collaborate with?
