January’s show ended with..
‘Police and Thieves’ by The Clash. As songwriters we took Mick Jones and Joe Strummer to
‘Lost in the Supermarket’ done by Ben Folds. We moved Ben on to his song
‘Steven’s Last Night In Town’ by Ben Folds Five. Some of The Klezmatics played on the track so we followed them to
‘Oberture’ by The Klezmatics. Marc Ribot guested on guitar so we tracked him to
‘I Surrender’ by David Sylvian. The sample used is from
‘You Know, You Know’ by The Mahavishnu Orchestra and we briefly linked the same sample to
‘One Love’ by Massive Attack who we followed to
‘Safe From Harm’ also by Massive Attack. We again followed the sample to the original song
‘Stratus’ by Billy Cobham. Guitarist Tommy Bolin played on the track so we followed Tommy to
“Ascorbic Acid’ by Alphonse Mouzon. Jay Graydon also played guitar on the song so we moved him as a songwriter on
‘After The Love Has Gone’ by Earth Wind and Fire.
Connections 22 in March will pick up where we left off!
