In Other words: Song Titles


One person names a singer or band, next player comes up with three song titles in other words, then names another artist for the next player.

Example:
Player 1: The Beatles
Player 2: Yo, Mr. Law (Hey Jude)
Assistance, ASAP! (Help)
Two Days Before Tomorrow (Yesterday)
Next, Abba

And that's where we'll start, Abba.

I Appreciate the Songs (Thank You for the Music)

Next: Lady Gaga

This would be more interesting if the first player gives the three "in other words" titles, then the next player gives the actual titles and the next artist.
