#NotBaconBits - From A-Ha to...


Yesterday we played Manhattan Skyline by A-Ha. So what song was chosen for today's #NotBaconBits connection? You can thank Ren Zelen for this one...

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.


"A pretty simple connection from me for #NotBaconBits this time, regarding musicians who almost entered the priesthood!

"Morten Harket from A-Ha studied theology after leaving school and it’s rumoured that he actually considered being a priest for a while.

"Another musician who almost became a priest was Jack White, who was about to enter a seminary but changed his mind when they told him he was not allowed to bring his electric guitar and amplifier!

"I therefore nominate the title track from Jack White’s solo album ‘Lazaretto’ (which is a historical name for an isolation hospital for people with infectious diseases, especially leprosy or plague). "

Lovely!
