For a bit of fun, and unashamedly nicked from the Radcliffe & Maconie show on Radio 2.

Basically, an attempt to form the biggest ever chain of thematically linked records. I've started it off with Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain". What you have to do is come up with a record that has a link to it, whether it be obvious or obscure.

Once someone has posted a song that has a link to the Fleetwood mac one, then another fantalker has to find another song with a link to that one, and so on and so on. Radcliffe & Maconie currently have a chain of over 1000 records. How well can we fantalkers do?

The only rules are:-

1 - Your chosen song must be a bona fide single or album track
2 - You must number your selection (ie. The Chain #41 - Artist and Title"
3 - An explanation of how that selection links to the previous one
4 - You cannot make two selections in a row. Once you make a selection, it's up to any other fantalker to follow it up.

Apart from a bit of fun, it may also have us seeking out tunes we otherwise may never have listened to.

Over to you -

THE CHAIN #1
Fleetwood Mac - "The Chain" from the album "Rumours" in 1977
