NotBaconBits - From Deep Purple to...

Yesterday we played Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple. So what song was chosen for today's #NotBaconBits connection? You can thank @Ferryjer 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.

An eclectic mix of suggestions prompted by yesterday's NotBaconBits - @OmandOriginal went down the purple route with a Prince song [Oh! Not that one? - Ed], @STBwrites went for a sublime Norwegian brass ensemble cover of a Frank Zappa song [Eh? - Ed], but today's NotBaconBits link of choice comes from @Ferryjer with this:

Going with lyrical name check as the link, Deep Purple name check great musicians Frank Zappa and The Rolling Stones...but both are too obvious, so I nominate Ian Dury and the Blockheads who name checks Sweet Gene Vincent



Now it's your turn. What will you connect to? Gene Vincent? Gene? Vincent? Blockheads? Or will you go with something else? The choice is yours, as long as you can show your working and tell us how you get there!
