Bunny Through The Looking Glass

FT + Popular21 comments • 1,538 views

Popular is on a brief hiatus while I play in the snow.

But here’s something to have fun with in the meantime (if you live in the UK, and are on Spotify!)

Bunny Through The Looking Glass is a collaborative playlist in which you can upload cover versions and remixes of No.1 hits. There are only two rules:

1. Only versions of songs that I’ve already written about on Popular. (I’ll delete later ones)
2. As far as possible try to move them to the right chronological bit of the playlist.

That’s all! Have fun with it!

    I shall stuff it with tat forthwith. Though I have just remembered the Black Box Recorder Up Town Top Ranking, I wonder if that’s there.

    It is!

    That Erasure “Take A Chance On Me” is embargoed, sorry whoever put it on!

    Yes, slight clarification. Covers which in themselves were number ones are embargoed.

    What about original versions of #1s e.g. Gloria Jones, Paragons?

    Oh goody, more excuses to muck around on Spotify. That’s this evening taken care of!

    I think so!

    I have Spotify invites if they’re still needed, by the way.

    It sounds like the kids want to kill themselves in that by the two minute mark.

    Just been on and added about 40 tracks to the playlist. Hope you enjoy them as much as I’ve been enjoying some of those added by others.

    I don’t know what’s better – finding an undiscovered gem, or cringing at some of the more pathetic (and pointeless)efforts!

    As of earlier this week, UK based users do not need an invite to join and use spotify. Just go to their site and sign up! I have totally lost my last three evenings!

    Also Tom, I think some of the problem with tracks being in the wrong order may be down to me – I apologise. As a cheapskate free user I can not find any way to order the playlist chronologically. Is it simple, or do I need to be a paid subscriber to do this?

    Pete Baran on 12 Feb 2009 #

    Drag and drop. Like a playlist elsewhere.

    #18 no worries VS – better have the great finds up there in the wrong order than not at all! Any users can move tracks around (or delete them I think – but don’t do that please!)

    A pity I couldn’t find Nirgilis’ Sakura (the most interesting Amazing Grace remix I know), but one can’t have everything.
