Hi all. DarceysDad here. I have agreed to write and post this week’s Sunday Sequence whilst leaveitallbehind is away.
First of all, last week’s connection (which I didn’t quite guess right) was “changing identities”.
The songs were:
Slipknot – Duality,
David Bowie – Changes, and
Kate Bush – Babooshka.
LIAB9 says Slipknot changed their identity with masks; Bowie had several (Aladdin Sane, Ziggy, Thin White Duke); and of course Babooshka did it to trick her errant husband 🙂
But now to this week’s. Because I’ve been left unsupervised with the key to the mp3 cupboard, I’ve gone completely over the top! In typical DsD style, if the norm is to only choose three courses from a menu, I’ve decided to gorge on the whole banquet.
Here’s eight, yes, EIGHT tunes. If you want to play the normal game, pick any three. That could be fiendishly difficult, particularly if you don’t know the songs. Alternately, you could hit lucky on three key words which make it an absolute giveaway. On the other hand, if you have the time and/or the inclination, play the lot. With one spiky exception, this is a fairly laid-back, smooth-running playlist.
I admit that the connection is, at times, tenuous in the extreme with some of these, so I’ll tempt you with a little clue as an amuse-bouche. The connection could be in either artists’ names or song titles, but if you write down what you know, you should be able to trace the connection all the way back to the source. My alternate file names when anonymizing the songs also drops a heavy hint. Oh, and if you somehow play the songs via Windows Media Player, although I’ve tried to remove the file properties, some of the album cover pics show up.
If any of you DO get this far, and have figured out the connection, then what your choices for another song would be will make very interesting reading. Off to make the kids’ tea; back later.
