#NotBaconBits - From Sky to...



Yesterday we played Toccata by the 80's supergroup Sky. So what was the connection to today's #NotBaconBits song...

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.

Even though it was Sunday yesterday, we got a few good suggestions for a connecting song for today.

@JimJamGin suggested this (and gave himself an earworm in the process)

"Ok. Marvellous chance for me to get to listen to an all time favourite. I remember seeing them on TV: my link is Blue Mink and Melting Pot. The link is easy: Herbie Flowers was in Sky and Blue Mink. "

We also very nearly went with @STBwrites Sky to Skyline connection and his suggested song of Manhattan Skyline from A-Ha, which is a favourite here at AlbieMedia.

But then @wolfpaw36 came up with a wonderfully complex connection that hinged on Sky band-member Francis Monkman, who composed the soundtrack for The Long Good Friday, which featured a very young Pierce Brosnan, who starring in Mama Mia, which features songs by Abba, who are Swedish, and so is Roxette, so his choice was Roxette's Almost Unreal from the film soundtrack for Super Mario Bros.

Phew! Nice one.

So what will you connect to for tomorrow? Roxette? Computer games? Something else? As long as you can justify your answer, it's a valid connection.
