Ernie Lai ended it with Angel - The The on 3/27/2007. He terminated it in a way that the rules say can't be trumped, SO i am not waiting the 48 hours to award the prize. Look for One Degree of Seperation II starting next week.

Several times i've had rules violations for linking a song to another song by the same band using the band name as the link. Also i've had people using a link more than 3 times in a row. PLEASE BE SURE not to violate these rules when posting an item.



Greetings, one and everyone. Since this place never seems to tire of contests, here's what i'm going to do.

My friends and I play a verbal game called "One Degree of Separation." It's a game where one of us thinks of a song title to start us off (For instance, "The Beatles - Nowhere Man").

Now, from that song, we take a word from the artist or title, and find another song where that word is matched in the title or artist.

Examples:
"The Beatles - Nowhere Man" to "Joe Diffie - Bigger than the Beatles"
"The Beatles - Nowhere Man" to "Billy Joel - Piano Man"

There are some rules:

To participate this competition, you must give this list a thumbsup. This is to keep the geeklist on the front page longer and give more people a chance to play.

You may post no more than 3 items consecutively. This lets you strategize how you want to try to stump the rest, but nobody can run away with the list this way.

Items must be SONGS in the form Artist - Song Name or Song Name - Artist.

You may NOT use any one song/artist combinatioin more than once. (Covers can be used of songs already listed, But not linked directly from the original.)

Classical music can be used. In this case, use the title and Composer.

You may NOT link a song from an artist to another song by the same artist using the artist as the link. If the song has a word in common with the artist, it may be used. Example:

"Iron Maiden - 2 Minutes to Midnight" to "Iron Maiden - Run For The Hills" is not legal.
Iron Maiden - 2 Minutes to Midnight" to "Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden" is. (Yes, Iron Maiden did a song called Iron Maiden.)

you may NOT link a song to a cover of the same song by a different band. (Songs that are not covers of one another, but happen to share the same title, are permissible.)

You may NOT link a song to the remix/live/edited version of itself.

You may not "Flip Flop", that is, Go from artist to a song title, then back to that same artist. For instance:

"The Beatles - Nowhere man" to "Joe Diffie - Bigger Than the Beatles" to "The Beatles - Taxman" is illegal.

The link can be used no more than 3 times in a row. Example:

"The Beatles - Nowhere Man" to "Billy Joel - Piano Man"
"Billy Joel - Piano Man" to "Elton John - Rocket Man"
"Elton John - Rocket Man" to "Alan Jackson - Little Man"

After that, "Man" is dead, and the next player will have to link to the remaining words in the last song. In this case, "Alan", "Jackson", or "Little." the word "Man" can be used for later links.

Compound words can be broken up, and one of the component words used in the link.

"The Beatles - Taxman" to "Billy Joel - Piano Man"

Words that are not real words in english can be broken up if their root word is a real word. Example:

"Metallica - Seek and Destroy" to "Quiet Riot - Metal Health"

In response to a geeklist comment, YES, this rule can be used the other way round.

Links based on words such as "An", "the", "a", "at" and "and" are not permissible. Example:

"The Beatles - Nowhere Man" to "The Rolling Stones - Paint It Black"

The spelling, tense, and/or Plurality of the Link word isn't important for the most part. Exceptions include words whose spelling changes entirely with conjugation, such as "To Be." It may be easier to say that matches are Phonetic rather than literal.

To include a TV or Movie theme song, you must include the artist and title of the track. For example, "Star Trek The Motion Picture Theme" would be "Jerry Goldsmith - Star Trek The Motion Picture Main Title"

And lastly, songs must be by PUBLISHED ARTISTS, and make sure you're using the SONG'S NAME AS IT APPEARS ON THE ALBUM, SINGLE, OR WHAT HAVE YOU.

So that's pretty much it. Participants can come and go as they pretty well please.
The last person to post something that isn't challenged for 48 hours (Excluding site outages) will get 1 GG from me, Plus any tips this Geeklist happens to collect along the way.

Start your CD collections! I will give you a 2-entry running start.

THERE IS NOW A WIKI ENTRY FOR THE GEEKLIST TO PREVENT DUPLICATE ENTRIES. Add your entries after you post to this list!!!
