The Chain

Sat Feb 06, 2010 4:11 pm

Another new Topic !
On Radcliffe and Maconie they have "The Chain" and Nicky Horne on PR has some thing similar called "Chains".
The idea is to provide a link between songs. It can be a very basic easy link such as:
White Room by Cream to Milk and Alcohol by Dr Feelgood ...... the chain being dairy/milk product
Or something more tenuous and complicated ie similar producer, or the bands are from the same town, or a play on words etc....

So you write the name of the song and artist and the next person has to provide the next song and artist and a brief description to explain the link. You can't follow the song with the same words or the same group - thats for the "never ending song" topic !
One point for each new link in the chain.
Two points if the link is a Fish / Fish era Marillion song !
I will try and keep score ! If a song is repeated I'll have to take off a point !

How tenuous can the links be??

Back Street Symphony - Thunder

Iron Maiden's main singer is Bruce Dickinson. The band he was in before Maiden was Samson. Samson's drummer was referred to by the rather mysterious nom de kit "Thunderstick".... The last link is simple!! 8-)

With a little bit of creative thought it is just about possible to link any track to any other track!!

My kinda thread!! ;) :D
