Comparing lyrics and narrative

Making a lyric mind map, as to compare different songs with what narrative I could possibly have with it, and what accent or tone of voice I could have for the lyrics, helped me to generate ideas for the project.

From the mind map, I found that I could carry on 4 of the songs from this mind map, with chance of more than one narrative and use of body language that can be used for Moom.

+ Boney M 'Rasputin' 
 - Narrative - could simply be Moom dancing along to the song with a fur hat on his head, have the     hat move into the air and onto his head as he moves. - Could act out one of the verses, example "Lover of the Russian queen, they put some poison into his wine, RA RA RASPUTIN, Russia's greatest love machine, He drank it all and he said "I feel fine" Could have Moom sat on a table, legs swinging with a goblet in his hand, gulps down the drink and throws it behind him with a smash of the glass, tastes the wine eyes looking up, then shrugging and jumping up from the table and strutting off with a happy spring in his step.

+ Aha! 'Take on me'
- Narrative - Have Moom dance with the music, move his hands across his face and move his head from side to side. - Could also copy a few of the movements from the music video for the song, for example sat at the cafe and change to black and white with in comic panels?

+ Nightmare Before Christmas 'Kidnap the Sandy Claws'
- Narrative - So Moom kidnapping a santa claus decoration and have Moom sneak around with a sack on his back, tip toe around walls and put his back against the wall to hide from people, could jump into a box or run at certain parts. - Could follow some of the narrative such as "First, we're going to set some bait, inside a nasty trap and wait, when he comes a-sniffing we will, snap the trap and close the gate", with this I would need a few props to go along with the story, depending on how long making props and backgrounds - could be too time consuming.

+ Nightmare Before Christmas 'Whats this?'
- Narrative - Have Moom look into a shop window, happily skips into the shop, and continues to look around the shop, exaggerated arm movements, speaking with his hands, ends with him buying one item. For this narrative I would need a full background and few items that Moom could interact with - possibly make the background in photoshop? could possibly be too time consuming depending on how much time it takes to make props in the Maya software.
