Wordles of famous songs

June 8, 2009 in Culture

Ever heard of wordle.net?

It’s a very handy website which generates word clouds from any block of text, identifying individual words and then showing them at a size relative to their frequency (in the fashion of the Topics box on the right of this page).

Since things are a bit quiet these days on the quizzing scene, I’ve come up with a use for wordle.net.  After the continue… you’ll find Wordles of 10 famous songs (or their lyrics, to be accurate).  See if you can identify them from the words alone.

Here’s ‘Firestarter‘ by The Prodigy, by way of an easy example:
