Yesterday we played This Mortal Coil and Susan Omand discovers happiness for today's #NotBaconBits...
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 Susan's link: This Mortal Coil took their name from the Monty Python's Flying Circus "Dead Parrot" sketch which, in turn, is a quote from Shakespeare's Hamlet. And, as those of us of a certain age remember, "Happiness is a cigar called Hamlet, the mild cigar from Benson and Hedges." The music that was used in those very famous TV commercials was Bach's Air on the G String, played beautifully here by the virtuosa pianist Valentina Lisitsa.
