    The Great AW Song Chain

    Some shenanigans (which were completely my fault) in another thread got me thinking of a Great AW Song Chain.

    Someone posts a song title and artist, and the next person has to find a link to another song based on artist, title, or related words in the lyrics.

    Example: AC/DC - Whole Lotta Rosie

    Response #1: Cracklin' Rosie - Neil Diamond.

    Response #2: Neil Diamond - Heartlight.


    Only rule: The same link cannot be used two posts in a row. For example, Response #3 cannot be "Neil Diamond - You don't bring me flowers" because Neil has been used for the previous link, but response #3 could be "Pink Floyd - Shine on you crazy diamond," "Heart - Dreamboat Annie," etc.

    Not a rule but a suggestion: if you link based on a line in the song, post the related line(s), so you're not coming out of left field. For example: Post: "Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody." Response: Steven Lunch - Beelz (through the line "Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me.")

    Make sense? Good. So to start off, the local classic rock station is currently playing:

    Metallica - Whiskey in the jar

    Not sure if I understand the rules correctly but here's my response:

    Whiskey in the Jar - Dubliners
    ... still hoping maybe one day to be a writer.

    Writing is like prostitution: First you do it for love, then for a few close friends, and then you do it for money. ~ Moliere

    My friend texted me the other day: 'What does idk mean?' I texted back: 'I don't know.' Then I got her response: 'OMG nobody knows!'

    Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia. ~ E.L. Doctorow

    Alice Cooper - Lace and Whiskey

    (You got it right, Nola. The next response could be another Alice Cooper song, an Alice in Chains song, Stevie Nick's "Leather and Lace," Arlo Guthrie's "Alice's Restaurant, a song by Whiskeytown, etc.)
