There was a game called "Song/Band Tag" on B&B that ran from 10/10/10 to 04/23/19 and stretched out to 621 pages. I'm not sure why it sputtered out. I haven't found a version of it here.

The simple rule was to tag onto the last posted song with another one bearing some recognizable connection (e.g., band, band member, lyrics, theme, etc.). So, there should only be one tag per song (multiple songs posted for the same tag invite confusion). Tags should be sequential (i.e., no hop-scotching backward). I don't think a player is supposed to self-tag. And when tags are non-obvious, they should be explained. 

So, if I were to start with Moby Grape's "Motorcyle Irene", the tag could be Richard Thompson's "'52 Vincent Black Lightning", and from there someone else might come up with the Shangra-Las "Leader of the Pack" or a recording by Fairport Convention. 

Anyone game?

I'll start with one of the greatest covers of all time.

Here's a bit more obscure connection:

Pure as mountain dew. 

BTW, the rule(s) don't require tagging with YouTube links. It's perfectly fine to post a simple reference adequate to establish the connection.

But links are nice. This is a great way to get turned onto songs and musicians you've never come across or given attention to before.

It's a bit obscure, but here's another version of "Along the Watchtower" with Dave Mason, Steve Winwood and Jeff Lynne (and Prince):

Back to Hank Williams:





This song refers to Williams's original D-28 Martin guitar, which Young has toured with for over 30 years. (From Wikipedia.)

It might be best to clarify some rules. There should only be one song posted per tag. Tags should be sequential (i.e., no hop-scotching backward). I don't think a player is supposed to self-tag. And when tags are non-obvious, they should be explained. 

Now here's a double tag (to Neil Young and "Old"):
