Looking at my Spotify account, I know I’m right in what I’ve always said: my friends have *extremely* good taste in music, despite their protestations to the contrary. So, we’re going to experiment with a game I’ve played in other contexts. I’m going to pick a theme, and in the comments you should each contribute your own musical selection on the theme.
Impossible to lose, everyone that plays is a winner.
Theme #1: Cover songs successfully using a different musical idiom than the original.
Example: Grace Jones, “Use Me.” Here, Jones takes Bill Withers’s nearly perfect R&B ballad and arranges it Island riddim stylee.
Now you go.
