The Musical Chain Game

Post by Rob998 » 30 Jul 2012 20:32

I've been playing this on another forum & it's really good fun. It's based on The Chain from a popular radio show in the UK: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/shows/the-r ... the-chain/

Basically someone suggests a song, which can be a single, a b-side or an album track, then the next participant has to suggest another song that has a link to the preceding one. This link can be simple eg: the titles are the same or share a word (not simple words like The, Is, A, Of etc, that would be too easy), it's by the same band, or it can be more difficult eg: There were shared musical personnel, it's on the same label or whatever: you can be as esoteric as you like.

If you choose an esoteric link then you can either tell us, or you can make it a condition of continuing that the link is identified. If you decide to make us find the link I suggest a 24hr limit to prevent the game dying, after that you need to tell us the link & then the game can continue as normal, please don't choose a link like "both songs were produced by the same guy" & then go on holiday for a fortnight!

So I'll start us off:

Shipbuilding - Robert Wyatt
