As I mentioned in the previous post, I had also thought about putting together a duet chain playlist. I went through with it and it has some good tracks on it. You may notice that a bit of a genre change around track 6.
As an added bonus and using a little creativity, I was again able to make a loop. The last track links the second to last track with the first.
I’ve had the idea for a while for a couple playlists. One was to be a duet chain where it started with a duet with A & B and the next song was a song with B & C, then C & D, etc. My other idea was to try to do a playlist of cover songs. So the first song is a artist A covering artist B, then the next song is artist B covering artist C, etc.
Yesterday I put together a cover song chain playlist. It’s got some good stuff on it, and as an added bonus, the last song in the playlist is a cover version of the first artist, so it’s a loop. It’s also under 80 minutes so it would fit on a CD.
There are two potentially questionable links. I counted Prince’s version of Nothing Compares 2 U as a cover of Sinead O’Connor’s version even though he wrote it. Also, “Love the One You’re With” is technically a Stephen Stills solo song, but I followed it with a Crosby, Stills and Nash song. I’ve seen CSN in concert and they played it, so I’m going to allow it.
In May, Janelle and I went to Toronto for a vacation. I forgot to post the video here. Toronto is very, very expensive. Especially with the weakened exchange rate. I think excluding hotel rates, Toronto was more expensive than New York.
