#NotBaconBits - From Cream to...


Yesterday we played Strange Brew by Cream. So what song was chosen for today's #NotBaconBits connection? You can thank @OmandOriginal for this one ...

As always for #NotBaconBits, once you've listened to today's choice, we're looking for your 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 - 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 explain how you got there and show your workings. 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.


There were a few good suggestions here, from the delightfully straightforward, thanks to @JimJamGin

"Cream - Strange Brew. Milk and Alcohol - that’s quite strange. Dr. Feelgood."

to the wonderfully, bizarrely, intricate, thanks to @STBwrites

"Cream. The cat that got the cream. Taylor Swift is in Cats. Swift did a live duet with Alanis Morrisette. So Alanis and You Oughta Know... "

But today we're actually letting @OmandOriginal have a shot [mostly to shut her up - Ed] with this one

"Cream was Ginger Baker, Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce. For a short while, Bruce was in the band Manfred Mann. The Manfreds had many hits back in the day including this one, written by Bruce Springsteen, that nobody quite gets the lyrics right for."

It's ok though, we chose the short version!



So now it's your turn. What will you link to for tomorrow's song? Manfred Mann? Springsteen? The unintelligible lyrics? Something else? The choice is yours, as long as you can show your working and tell us how you get there!
