#NotBaconBits - From Nas to...


Yesterday we played Nas in a NY State of Mind. So what's the connection 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.

Well, it seems convoluted and complicated seems to have been the way to go from yesterday's song.

We nearly went with @STBwrites suggestion: "The ONLY version of New York State of Mind worth listening to is Billy Joel’s who also wrote Miami 2017. Will Smith called Miami his second home. Will Smith sang with Marc Anthony, who was married to JLo so Jlo’s Jenny From the Block"

But then @Wolfpaw36 popped up with this: "Ok pin your ears back this is complicated... Nas is son of Olu Dara Jones, musician in his own right. Olu's 2nd album Neighbourhoods featured a guest appearance of Dr John, who had played at The Last Waltz of The Band. So we are here..."

So today's track is The Weight by The Band. What will your connection for tomorrow link from? Weight? Band? The Scorsese documentary of The Last Waltz concert that Wolfpaw mentions? Or something else entirely? Let us know on Twitter or Facebook.
