six degrees of bacon...hold the bacon

the idea for this blog has its roots in a little game my wife and i play with the songs we choose to wake up to. each song has some link to the song that precedes it. for instance, last week she started with "everything in its right place" by radiohead, (the song tom cruise wakes up to in vanilla sky). i countered with "i got you babe," the song bill murray wakes to in groundhog day. after that was "just like honey," jesus and mary chain, from lost in translation, another bill murray movie. and so on.

all of the songs above are linked by movies, but that won't necessarily be the case for the songs i post here. They could be linked by a person, some musical characteristic, or some stupid pun. hopefully it'll become obvious how it works as time progresses.

while i am myself partial to indie rock/pop, i expect that the process of connecting songs will take us into diverse, strange rick dee territory. i promise to do my damnedest to keep modern country-pop out of the mix.

i plan on doing at least a track every weekday, maybe two if the connection is very obvious. for this inaugural post, i'll include five tracks to get things rolling. i'll post the track information and connections tomorrow. let's do the listen!

note: i've renamed the files so that the downloading act won't automatically ruin the "surprise." the tags are still intact though, so be aware that your media player will probably display track information.

track 1
track 2
track 3
track 4
track 5
