Music trivia sticks in my head like pubic hair to Velcro. I started this mix on paper, trying to flex my musical knowledge as hard as possible, but soon realized that as a mix, it sucked. Thusly, I wadded the paper up and started again.

My second try, the theme: a listenable mix that connects two *very* unrelated artists.

Enjoi!
