The Music Thread

Recommended Posts

It's time again to play Mystery Music Connection: What do these songs have in common? Remember, if you think you know the answer, post a video of a song that's also in the category, but don't reveal the answer. I'll let you know if your video fits.

 

Here's the first clue.

I never could remember which one was Kool...

 

 

Kool is Robert Earl Bell according to Wiki. If you posted this to play the game, you're slightly off, but are on the right plane.

I have no earthly idea what the game is all about, PD.  Yes, I'm aware there IS a game, but my taste in music is so far from the mainstream it's like being in the Gobi.

Is that a club on the Sarstoon River?

Oh, I will explain a little better. 

 

The first person posts a music video that he/she has determined fits into an arbitrary category they've thought up and researched only slightly. That video is the first clue. Subsequent players (who are much more clever than the original poster has been giving them credit for) will then quickly figure out the category and post their own video in the same category to continue the game. If that player's video correctly matches the category, the OP will tell them so and the video serves as a clue for the rest of the players. 

 

Example: The first game we played, I posted Kevin Spacey singing "Somewhere Beyond the Sea". The next clue was Kevin Bacon singing a song with his band, the Bacon Brothers. Duq posted a video of his crush, Zooey Deschanel singing some little song. RSK posted Bruce Willis singing "Respect Yourself". All of these were within the category of Actors Who Also Sing Professionally. 

 

The clues for this week's game surely reach back to some of your younger days, no?

Uh...no, not really.  But thanks for taking the time to explain. It really wasn't necessary but I appreciate it all the same.
