Song Title Challenge #51: Finite = Alright by David Byrne

It’s time for this week’s Song Title Challenge.

Write a short piece of fiction, around 300 words, using the song title as your story title but don’t listen to the song.  You can pick your own genre or use the one suggested to me.  Remember to link back to this post so I can find yours.

If you would like to suggest a song title for a future post, you can do so from the challenge page.  You can also leave a suggestion on the Facebook page.

This week’s song is Finite = Alright by David Byrne and the genre is Horror/Thriller.  As “=” is a mathematical symbol and not a grammatical one I made the judgment call to drop it in the story, but I bet bumblepuppies (who suggested this week’s song) is going to accuse me of cheating again.  I just can’t win.

This week’s song is Scentless Apprentice by Nirvana and the genre is Horror/Thriller.  It was suggested by bumblepuppies who claimed this suggestion is a dirty trick of sorts.  It must be because the song was apparently inspired by the novel Perfume: The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Süskind, itself a horror about a man with an excellent sense of smell but no body scent of his own who becomes an apprentice to a perfumer but then starts killing virgins in search of the perfect scent.  Creepy.
