I was looking for new music last night, following recommendations on Napster, and realized that by the time I got 5-6 clicks from my original search, I could be in a totally different genre. For example, a search starting with Harry Connick Jr made it to Metallica in about 9 or 10 clicks. So, I decided to challenge myself to see how fast I could get there from something more difficult.
Max and Ruby (Nickelodeon cartoon) - slightly tricky since most of the recommendations were Canadian
The Belmonts - I picked the least Canadian sounding group
Barry Mann - I thought that would get me closer than it did
Luciano Pavarotti - I was hoping he'd link directly to Sting or, even better, Suzanne Vega, because of the "and Friends" albums, but it didn't
Josh Groban -
Suzanne Vega - key to everything - this game could be called Six Degrees of Suzanne Vega, but it would be too easy.
Alice in Chains
My MP3 player has a lot more variety now (yes, I did add something from every artist along the way). Anyone have another challenge for me?
