Driving Game (Part 85)
ExtraMedium shared some links said1
Welcome to the Meh Forum Driving Game!
Connect a new song to the previously played song by name, musician, musical group, or concept. Try to use the format “Artist - Song Title” when possible. Avoid repeats, and do not make two plays back to back.
To avoid repeating past songs, it’s best to always do a quick search of the current thread as well as checking in the official Driving Game Cheat Sheet before making your play.

@Kyeh did you see the incredible connection Ircon96 made below?
@chienfou @ircon96 Yes, very clever!
/giphy I concur
@chienfou @Kyeh Thanks, guys! I’m obviously WAY behind on checking my replies, but this convo about my Toto–>Kansas connection made my day, which happened to have been quite the rollercoaster! Lol
Worriers - Yes All Cops
@metaphore I’m stumped - what connection am I missing?
Oh wait - I bet you connected to the one I replaced - sorry! I put up The Police - De Do Do Do - but then found that I played already on Game 18, I think it was.
@Kyeh I swear it was still The Police when I posted mine
@metaphore Yeah, it took me a couple of minutes to find something else to post.
/youtube Stevie Wonder - Don’t You Worry 'Bout A Thing
@metaphore A bridge!

Thank You, I’m Sorry - how many slugs can we throw against the wall until we question our own mortality
@metaphore Does this win for longest song title in the game?
@Kyeh I’ve done a few other super long ones, but it’s gotta be close
@Kyeh I do have at least 2 more really long ones on deck, which you would think would be easy to make when there’s 20 words in the title, but they really need the right match.
@metaphore Do you collect them?
@Kyeh Not intentionally, but something about really long song titles I find super pleasing so I gravitate towards them. And a few of the bands I really like are into the super long titles.
@metaphore I see!
Ooo, @llangley may have beat that one with “Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict” by Pink Floyd! (16 words.)
@Kyeh While searching for “used” before posting just now, back in part 15 I played
“Pet Symmetry - Please Don’t Tell My Father That I Used His 1996 Honda Accord To Destroy The Town Of Willow Grove, Pennsylvania In 2002”
even if you don’t count the years it comes in at 20, I think I have one more (by the same band) that’s equally long but that will be hard to beat
@metaphore Okay, that’s impressive!
