#NotBaconBits - From Hot Chocolate to...


Yesterday we played Hot Chocolate and You Sexy Thing. So what song was chosen for today's #NotBaconBits connection?...

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 couple of top suggestions to link from yesterday's song. We nearly went with @STBwrites connection - "The Full Monty soundtrack also had Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel on it. Steve Harley recorded Amerika the Brave with Marc Bolan, his last studio performance before his death so I’m going for the Hollywood Vampires cover of Jeepster"

But then @RenZelen came up with today's winner...

"Another song recorded by Hot Chocolate was called ‘I Believe’, which was also the title of a song by Stevie Wonder on his album ‘Talking Book’, which was featured on the soundtrack album of the John Cusack film ‘High Fidelity’ along with the famous song by The Jam, ‘A Town Called Malice’.
Another well-known song by The Jam was called That’s Entertainment’ which was covered by Morrissey, lead singer of The Smiths. Which brings me to the Smiths song I used to play every day after I got my first job - ‘Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now’."

Get ready to wave your gladioli in the air then and then think of a song to connect to this one for tomorrow.
