- Please write an original story based on inspiration from the song title. Please don't tack this title onto a story you have already written. There is no way for me to enforce this, but the spirit of this contest is to provide a prompt for a new story.
- Preference for speculative fiction, including science fiction, fantasy, horror, and various combinations and sub-genre.
