From Vera Lynn to Rush in 14 CDs


The following is a CD daisy-chain from my collection. Each CD after the first contains the same song as the previous and the next CD in the chain, leading from Vera Lynn, a British singer of the WWII era, to Rush, Canadian arena-rock icons of the 70s, who in 2004 have recorded an EP of covers, songs others have made famous. Just to take the chain one step more into diversity, Rush leads to Willie Nelson on the cassette version I've recorded of this list!
