This is a simple game, playable in seconds but also liable to send players down epic you-tube worm-holes in search of that half-remembered lyric. Or maybe that's just me...

All you need to do is post a song that is related in some way to the song immediately before it. It could be something straightforward like the same artist, or a word in the title. It could be something unusual, like a feature in the video or an evoked memory of a cherished time. If you think people might miss your association, just mention it in the post.

And so without further ado, here is the first song, one which evokes a cherished memory of my own:

Vicka & Linda Bull: I didn't Know Love Could be Mine

Never a huge U2 fan, but I saw them live in I am going to say 1985. They had such fierce energy back then.

This is an obscure link, based on the last poster, rather than the suggestion, but I always think of Colin Stetson and Spindrift (and becasue it is pretty awesome, if you haven't heard it)

When Father Papered the Parlour by Billy Williams.

Everyone except Brits of a certain age will struggle to see that connection.

Thanks to a 1970s wallpaper advert, some of us can't hear Spinning Wheel without singing:

"What goes up
Must come down
Super Fresco makes things easy
It's by Graham and Brown"

So the link is wallpaper.
