#NotBaconBits - From Manfred Mann's Earth Band to...


Yesterday we played Blinded by the Light by Manfred Mann's Earth Band. So what song was chosen for today's #NotBaconBits connection? You can thank @STBwrites 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.

@Wolfpaw36 helped out with our knotty lyric problem yesterday as part of his connection suggestion for today's #NotBaconBits "This opens with... 'Blinded by the light. Revved up like a deuce, Another runner in the night'" and he asked "A deuce like this?" Little Deuce Coupe by The Beach Boys.

Great song! But, today, we're going with this link suggestion from @STBWrites...

"Springsteen wrote this, he also wrote Philadelphia. Philadelphia is where Will Smith comes from. It’s also the birth place of Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. She hated herself for loving me apparently, I can’t blame her."



So now it's your turn. What will you link to for tomorrow's song? Joan Jett? Black hearts? Something else off the album? The choice is yours, as long as you can show your working and tell us how you get there!
