#NotBaconBits - From Jon & Vangelis to...


On Friday we played Jon & Vangelis and So Long Ago, So Clear. 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 Sunday'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.

So Long Ago, So Clear immediately made me think of lyrics on the very first Dire Straits album that I bought for myself (mother had the full back catalogue on vinyl but I wanted this one on CD since it was one of the early albums to be issued in that format.)

You're so far away from me, 
You're so far, I just can't see...

Here's the full 5 minute version, since it's a Sunday and you have the time to listen.



So now it's your turn. What will you link to for tomorrow's song? Dire Straits? Mark Knopfler? CDs? The choice is yours, as long as you can show your working and tell us how you get there!
