A new song name game

In this song name game, you list 2 unrelated songs which have to be linked by 1 or more songs between them according to artist name or song title (the traditional manner). As an example, you could link Instant Karma to Enter Sandman:

John Lennon: Instant Karma, Woman Ė Steppenwolf: Straight Shooting Woman, Monster Everybodyís Next One Ė Metallica: One, Enter Sandman

After someone manages to link the songs above their post, they post the next 2 to be linked.

One further stipulation that Iím going to add, in order to prevent silly bickering about the authenticity of previous links of songs, is that silly ass links count, even if linked by simple words like of or as, or a split compound word. Linking related words such as man and boy also count, as do words which mean different things but are pronounced the same way. We donít need to make this TOO complicated, but it might be more fun to make it so.

So for starters, letís try the Devotion by Earth Wind And Fire, and Higher by Creed.

This is way too complicated.

I have NO idea how this works. Your example doesn't shine a whole lot of light, either

It's just the same as the other song name game, except you have to do more linking.

The Song Name Game

^^Like on this page, from 16576-16580, run run away and diving duck blues were linked. It's the same thing, except you link multiple songs yourself, and the person above you specifies which ones.

Maye my first example of Instant Karma to Enter Sandman could be clarified by naming the artist before each song.

John Lennon-Instant Karma, John Lennon-Woman, Steppenwolf-Straight Shooting Woman, Steppenwolf-Monster, Steppenwolf-Everybody’s Next One, Metallica-One, Metallica-Enter Sandman

I don't care how it's written down, the point is to link the multiple songs to each other by using names.

Is it really THAT complex?

not complex and is a good concept, but seems to be a fair amount of work.

That's the point. More work, but potentially more interesting.

Oh, sort of like
Todd Rundgren: Death of Rock and Roll -> Lou Reed: Rock and Roll -> Leon Russell: Roll Away the Stone ?

Ahhhh... but, I need to continue it from yours, don't I?

OK...
Metallica: One -> Fleetwood Mac: That's it for everyone -> Steve Earle: Everyone's in Love with You.

You didn't quite link the ones I specified, but I'm not the picky type.

The thing you do have to do is list the next set of songs to be linked.
