One of the local radio stations has been playing this game for some time, and I thought that it might be fun here.

Basically, it goes like this: you name 4 or 5 five songs that are reasonably connected somehow, and the rest of us attempt to guess your connecting theme.

Something like this: Barracuda, Thunderstruck, Living on a Prayer, Enter Sandman, Love in an Elevator.

Answer: Songs from albums recorded in Vancouver. Hopefully I got that right.

The station has prizes; here we just have fun. Possible themes can go from "left handed bass players" to "blonde singers" and the much more difficult "city names mentioned in the song that are original 6 NHL cities".

Stuff like that. Anybody up for it?

Not being a huge Weird Al fan, that was tough. Thanks medic8r.

Here's a softball to balance it out:

Honky Tonk Woman - The Rolling Stones
Hair of the Dog - Nazareth
Low Rider - War
Working for the Weekend - Loverboy

and if you really need one more

Warning, Spoiler:
Don't Fear the Reaper - Blue Oyster Cult
