#NotBaconBits - From J S Bach to...


Yesterday we played Air on the G String by Bach and @JimJamGin on Twitter finds a #NotBaconBits link we all need on a Monday...

As always for #NotBaconBits, once you've listened to today's choice, we're looking for your connection suggestions for tomorrow's track.

Join in by tweeting us @albiemediaAM with the #NotBaconBits hashtag or adding your suggestions in the comments of our #NotBaconBits Facebook posts. It's like Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon but with music - remember the link can be as simple or contrived as you want, in any music genre (it doesn't have to be classical or pop) and you can link to anything about the song - the title, the artist, words in the song, something about the video ... anything as long as you can justify it. If we pick your suggestion for the link, you'll get the credit in that day's article and shout outs on our social networking streams.

Here's Jimmy's link: "In the 18th century coffee was beginning to be a big thing in Prussia, however the Frederick the Great didn't agree and employed "coffee smellers" to root out the smell of those illegally roasting their own coffee. JS Bach did a satire on this - the Coffee Cantata. My link, however, is coffee related and I'd like to suggest Coffee Homeground by Kate Bush. Based on an ride in a taxi driven by a bloke who thought he was being poisoned, it's a great track with throw backs to history's great poisoners and sung in the style of Lotte Lenya, the wife of Kurt Weil. Watch out for the smell of bitter almonds now ...."

And a great little (unofficial) video to go with it too.

Another glass my dear...?
