048 Song chain (part 1)

So here is a simple idea. I pick a song, and then you pick a song that is related to that song in some way. Then someone else picks a song based on that song and so on. Repeat until fully satisfied!

loved it. i think i liked this week so much because of the thread holding each consecutive selection together – no matter how vague the connections. anyway, nice one/well done to all involved.

I always like to see song chains. Great job with everything!

I agree with Matt! This turned out really great.

You start it off with one of my favorite songs ever!!! This is going to be cool…I just know it.

Oh, and Dear Ross, I’m humbly gratified that I was able to shake up your workplace a wee bit!
