Because I am Lately Having Long, Soulful Talks With My Dogs as I Sit in my House Without Furniture


In the tradition of more fun lists I think up in the Dunkin' Donuts line -- here's another thing we could do --

How long can we keep a dramatic conversation going using only song titles? For example:

"Help," The Beatles
"What's the Matter Here?", 10,000 Maniacs
"Who are You?", The Who
"I Am a Scientist," Guided by Voices
"Touch Me, I'm Sick," Mudhoney
"Relax," Frankie Goes to Hollywood
"Jonny's Gonna Die," The Replacements
"Boys Don't Cry," The Cure

So, you get one title to keep the line going, and then someone needs to add to it, etc., and then you can go again -- sort of an Exquisite Corpse of Music.

As a starting place:

"What's Going On?", Marvin Gaye.
