Week Three: Page 42 and the Secrets of the Universe

April 12th, 2020

Last week brought us eleven new songs from our writers, but hold on to your hats folks. Things are getting fun around here as this week we welcome a plethora of new talent to SQ with what may be the most fun challenge yet.

Douglas Adams famously taught us in "A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" that the secret meaning of the universe was, or course, 42.

The writers went on their bookshelves and found their most dog-eared, falling apart book.  On page 42 they found a word or phrase that stuck out to the them.  This phrase is their song title for this week.

We hope you are enjoying SQ as much the writers.  Please share and follow our new Instagram page as well @songwriterquarantine
