Voodoo Child (Jimi Hendrix)

We interrupt our regularly scheduled broadcast for something entirely different - a friend sent the following meme ("a unit of information, such as a cultural practice or idea, that is transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another", according to and, since it's music-related, of course I had to play (no pun intended) along!

I'll title today's blog post with one of the songs that comes up - here goes (with no editorial comments from me - I'll let the tunes speak for themselves):

1. Put your music player on shuffle.
2. Press forward for each question.
3. Use the song title as the answer to the question even if it doesn’t make sense. NO CHEATING!
