As can be seen by my sig, I'm a big Final Fantasy freak. I was thinking of making a few songs inspired by the series. I just got this idea as I was thinking about how Led Zep wrote a bunch of songs based on Lord of the Rings. I couldn't find inspiration anywhere else plus this is a total excuse to play a FF game while writing! Anyone else think it's a good idea?

Oh yea, themed songs are awesome. The only thing you have to watch out for is that you don't repeat the same ideas over and over.

Try writing around the themes of the games and issues raised in them rather than explicitly mentioning anything or anyone by name.

It makes it more inclusive for people unfamiliar with the series, while still being influenced by the games.

That's pretty much what I was going for. I wasn't gonna use names or anything, just loose ideas.
