Music Playlist quiz followup

I had a playlist quiz the other day. To recap, I asked, given a set of 6 songs, find the organizing principal and pick a new good song for the playlist.   A few attempted to extend the playlist, but only Adam offered a successful match.   Here are the seed songs, but this time I also include the album art – which may help you decide what songs fit and what don’t:

  • Made to measure – Umphrey’s McGeez
  • Diablo Rojo – Rodrigo Y Gabriella
  • Livin’ Thing – Electric Light Orchestra
  • Two Step – Dave Matthew’s Band
  • Vortex – Burst
  • Almost Honest – Megadeth

Adam’s suggestion of XTC’s Wake up fits well:

We’ll call this playlist, the squared circle.  There are lots more potential album covers for albums in this genre on Flickr: squaredcircle

    Ha! I was a million miles off, then, in what amounted to a lucky guess.
