No Original Thoughts

Over the weekend I started playing a game in Spotify.

The idea is to start with an artist, and get to another artist through Spotify's "Related Artists" concept. A little like 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon.

It's fun, and you can add to the interest by playing a track as you pass by each artist.

As an example, to get from Green Day to Elton John, follow this route.

Green Day
The Damned
The Undertones
Roxy Music
David Bowie
Cat Stevens
Elton John

I also play that you can't use the Beatles, as they're probably at the root of a lot of bands.

I wondered if anybody else had come up with this game, and found a similar idea here.
