Link the Song

Inspired by Radcliffe & Maconie's Radio 2 show (IMO the best radio show on at the moment) where they have a feature called 'The Chain', I thought I'd see if it will transfer to this forum.

'The Chain' links a song to the previous one played in the sequence. The link can be either from the title, the artist(s), the producer or other musicians in the band.

For instance, you could link a Beatle song to one from Wings (Macca being the link), or 'Songbird' to 'Rockin Robin' - birds being the link.

A brief explanation of the link is required.

Radcliffe & Maconie started with Fleetwood Mac's 'The Chain', so we'll start with that (no looking at their website for a list of songs played on their Chain!)

"Go your own way" - also by Fleetwood Mac.
Big TC

"My Way" - Frank Sinatra. The link is 'way'
gonnabuildabuggy

Thats a hard one so mine is "My perfect cousin" by the Undertones - the link being "my"
Big TC

"Long Haired Lover From Liverpool" - Jimmy Osmond.

The Undertones recorded a song called 'Jimmy Jimmy', so Jimmy is the link.

(Sorry about the song, btw!)

"Car Wash" by Rose Royce. I think the link is obvious on that one.
