I've heard many a college radio schmuck play "Taxman" by the Beatles back-to-back with "Start" by the Jam, lamely attempting to assert a rather obvious connection.

As if it ever gets played:
Laughing/ Street Waves - Pere Ubu .. would be.

"Back in the day," as they say, I used to hear Bowie's "Space Oddity" followed lamely by either Peter Schilling's "Coming Home" or Bowie's own "Ashes to Ashes", sort've like...completing the story, man. Groan!

cinniblount (James Blount), Thursday, 29 April 2004 03:47 (eighteen years ago) link

Sometimes I hear some of those '80s Genesis singles - like "Abacab" or "Mama" - in their two-part long forms on the radio. But only rarely, and only if the DJ has to take a leak.

"you're all I've got tonight/bye bye" - i don't think i've ever heard these songs paired on the radio.

Root Down -> Sabotage should be one of these but I rarely heard either on the radio anymore.

billstevejim, Thursday, 23 May 2019 05:50 (two years ago) link

Funeral for a friend -> Love Lies Bleeding

Is there an record where "She Smiles Sweetly" and "Ruby Tuesday" are played in sequence or does this only exist in Wes Anderson world?

billstevejim, Thursday, 23 May 2019 05:59 (two years ago) link

Only in Wes Anderson world, I think.

On topic, a local Classic Rock station (now defunct) tried to make "Moby Dick"-->"Bring It On Home" a thing.
