Barenaked Ladies - One Week

I want to see what someone would come up with trying to make an anime based on a song where literally about half the lyrics were ad-libbed and have nothing to do with much of anything.

For a full length anime series, an adaptation of Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique might be interesting. I feel like the composer's notes on the story already work as a good outline for how it could be made.

There are lots of songs that I would love to see adapted as artistic anime shorts though - maybe like one episode or less. When I say "artistic" I mean more "atmospheric" - kind of like Miyazaki or Makoto Shinkai films. Some examples are

Schubert's Der Erlkonig - (Fairly self explanatory)
Alkan's Barcarolle - (I imagine something like an enchanted gondola ride to another world. Like Aria, but more whimsical)
Debussy's Claire de Lune - (I imagine something akin to a a lovers' meeting at a moonlit ball)

A lot of Vocaloid songs could be turned into anime.
Tokyo Teddy Bear, Romeo and Cinderella, Canterella, Kokoro, Matryoshka, Just be friends, Super Hero, Witch Hunt, My crush was a monster boy. It's endless.

It's dystopian story, I think it would work well animated. Best would be animated ala Bakshi. Would need a lot of filler/fleshing out, but perhaps a one-shot movie.

being from a rural area i really like that^ an anime about country life and culture, not so sure how well it would do especially outside the US, but an awesome idea nonetheless.
