Creative song volleys ensue as DJ Val's Track du Jour does battle with FRONT ROW & BACKSTAGE! What song would YOU have chosen?
first of all, thank you so much for posting this, brad!! real life got hectic, so substack got put on the furthest backburner. i really appreciate it.
secondly, this was so fun to read again! relived the fun of our game! i truly had a blast digging through my crates and waiting impatiently while you dug through yours. i laughed at the time, but laughed all over again at how different our approaches and connections were. it’s like how there’s three sides to every story. person A’s, person B’s, and the truth. regardless of whatever WE were doing, the playlist is its own third thing.
i’m also delighted by the response in the comment section! wow!!! so happy other people jive with the idea. i hope everyone has at least half as much fun as we did!
again, thanks a lot, brad! when things chill out for me, i’d love to do another!
I'm surprised anyone could send you a song you had never heard!
This was a lot of fun! A great idea and some lovely music, much of which was new to me
This is a great game!! My brother and I always play games where we come up with strange song categories. Songs with « Twintros! » or almost identical openings (I feel like someone wrote about this on Substack recently). Songs with mistakes in the (« I saw her...I saw her again. Last night »), songs or outtakes where people crack up! The list goes on. But I like the game of Tag! This has legs!!
I feel like this project is calling out for a tennis wordplay title. Especially since you are using “ten” songs. Volleying back and forth. Great collab idea!
As always, thanks for the new music suggestions!
Such a cool idea! I love Leon Bridges ♥️
Neat! I like the idea of exposing folks to vastly different forms of music, and this kind of formed a conversation of sorts.
