The Chain

Post by camus » Sat Feb 04, 2012 11:59 pm

The Chain - Simple premise. Link one song to the next, however simple or convoluted the explanation, so long as there are some good sounds, and so it goes... Put a little description of the songs link and reasons for, etc. Just a bit of fun...

Tried this on Facebook, but mostly they're a bunch of cunts talking about the price of sausages. So I bring this to you, sophisticates, people of fine taste and probably good sausage pricers.

I'll start with 3 songs, records? Whatever:





Gloria Jones was married to Marc Bolan



Marc Bolan took the damned on tour as his support act in 1977.

Ohhhh I'm liking that convolution, good one. That said, perhaps comments will break the flow, so I'll shut me gob.
