Build off the EXACT song title word


Also : only from the genres: prog, psych,heavy/hard,pop,popsike.


NO country, crooner-shit, soundtracks.


You can use lp titles.

Also ,in brackets, please indicate source (artist).






Here goes then:
CLOUDS and CLOWNS (Hoelderlin)

(You must build-off either the words "clouds" or "clowns". In this case must be plural. For instance, Clown (The Flock) would not be accepted.

Resurrecting this thread, with the following changes. All genres accepted, none of this elitist BS. All song titles in English. Album titles only if an acceptable song title can't be found. And a and the are not to be used to link song titles. So, continuing from On a Carousel...

On a Clear Day - Barbara Streisand

I would say it's not necessary, most likely a holdover from the previous rules set by someone who's no longer here.

There's another Thread Game, "You Said It", where the word for the next person to play on is capitalized. That, plus the title of this and the above play made me (and apparently others) think that was the case. It is of no matter. Play on!
