This game is totally robbed from Radcliffe and Maconey's radio show on Radio 2, but should work equally well as a forum game.

The rules of the game are straightforward, and hopefully simple: someone gives the name of a song and the artist of that song, and the next person has to give a name and artist of another song, with a reason as to why they're related. Any relation is acceptable, but if it's quite clearly no relation, won't be accepted. No contiguous posts with a song by the same artist.

No double-posts, no repetition. The repetition's gonna be hard to check in time given there's no search functionality on the forum, but we'll see how we get on.

I'll start things off, I'm going to say:

The Sex Pistols - God Save the Queen

Queen - We Are The Champions.

The Sex Pistols song, God Save The Queen, was released in the same year, 1977.

Both songs reached number two in the UK charts although most people think they were number ones.

They're also linked by the word Queen. Obviously!

Marvin Gaye co-wrote Dancing In The Street with a guy called Mikey Stevenson who also produced both songs.

"I can't stop farting" by the Queers.

Yes that is a real song and there is a very obvious link. You see, "Tea for Two" is an anagram of "We fart too", and let's be honest we all do - except for Her Maj, bless her cork-like haemorrhoids.
The human race - we - is constantly farting, and we just can't stop. Hence, I can't stop farting.

The reason. I'm sure you can work that one out for yourselves.

PS. I'm not being homophobic. A very close relative of mine is gay and he refers to himself as being "a bit queer."

I'll Follow You Down - Gin Blossoms

I mean, Moses' followers did start sinning (which included gambling- gin rummy?- and drinking- gin?) while his beard was busy blossoming after speaking with the Man Upstairs...this connection was brought to you by Charlton Heston and The Ten Commandments.

I didn't realise Ray had done a cover of that, I'll have to look it up. I like songs with a story.

In the similar ilk of trading covers of other singers, I'm going to go with:

I can't stop loving you by Don Gibson.

I have to confess I had to look up the artist, I (rather embarrassingly) thought Elvis had sung it.

I always assumed Ray had covered the song, but didn't realise just how old that song is (both versions).

Interestingly, Ray Charles was 5 years older than Elvis, something else I didn't realise.

I'm learning a lot today.

Contrary to popular belief the "Betty" referred to in the title is not a woman..... it is actually a gun....which leads nicely to....
