This swap is loosely based on the game 'Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon' but with a musical twist. For anyone who doesn't know what this is...basically someone came up with a game whereby you can link anyone in the entertainment business to Kevin Bacon in six degrees of less. See http://www-distance.syr.edu/bacon.html if you want a better explanation. :)
For this swap, you have to make a 'chain of connections' between artists to compile your CD. For example, you could start with the Beatles and then have Michael Jackson as Paul McCartney and Jacko duetted together on 'Say Say Say'. MJ was in the Wiz with Diana Ross. The Bee Gees wrote and did the backing vocals on Chain Reaction....and continue this till you fill the CD. :)
I know that there are certain genres of music where collaborations are really popular (e.g. r&b and country spring to mind) and it would be really easy to fill a CD with these type of artists. Try and aim for a CD of mixed genres.
This will involve making a mix CD and also a brief description of why you chose certain artists, as the connection may not be as clear to you partner.
If everyone agrees, we could even start with the same artist (maybe the Beatles as just about everyone I know has at least one Beatles song)? That might be more fun to see the different chains we all make. Leave a message in the comments if you'd be up for this, otherwise we can just keep it as is. :)
I will check all participants and if there is anything I'm not happy about I will ban as I want everyone to have fun on this swap.
