A friend posted this on my fb and it has really got me scratching my head.

 

 

Basically, your favourite run of 3 consecutive songs off one album. Compilations/greatest hits etc are not allowed

 

Really struggled myself.

 

Some frontrunners for me:

 

Funeral: Wake Up -> Haiti -> Rebellion

 

Discovery: One More Time -> Aerodynamic -> Digital Love

 

The Stone Roses: I Wanna Be Adored -> She Bangs The Drums -> Waterfall or even This Is The One -> I Am The Resurrection -> Fools Gold

 

Humbug: Cornerstone -> Dance Little Liar -> Pretty Visitors

 

Different Class: Sorted for E's & Whizz -> F.E.E.L.I.N.G.C.AL.L.E.D.L.O.V.E. -> Underwear

 

Doolittle: Wave of Mutilation -> I Bleed -> Here Comes Your Man

 

Countless others too. I just can't bloody choose.

Dang you Pap! Ten had just popped into my head on the train!

 

Would probably be Black -> Jeremy -> Oceans for me. Though it's hard to go wrong.

 

Also:

 

Reflektor: Oh Orpheus -> Porno -> Afterlife

 

Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me: If Only We Could Sleep -> Why Can't I Be You -> How Beautiful You Are

 

Ah, why have I started this? Can't stop!

This is either a cheat or the most deserving entry on here.

 

Extreme

- Rise 'n Shine

- Am I ever going to change?

- Who cares?

 

 

It's a cheat because it's purpose built as a 3 song run, the last part of their III Sides to Every Story. It's also the best thing they ever did.

Just been offered a ticket to see them tonight. I sadly can't make it.

 

I'm not sure if it is a cheat. I'm guessing no, as it is meant to be a run of tracks. There is plenty of mention of the individual tracks from the Abbey Road Medley on the original Reddit thread, so can't see why this would not make it.

Operation mind crime is a bloody fantastic album !

 

One of the best rock albums of the 1980s. Think it might have been my first concept album too.

I'm not a huge fan of Extreme in general. They came across like a "pop man"'s Faith No More when they first landed, got even more dubious when they started unleashing syrupy ballads unto this world.

 

However, that whole album is very good.

I'm still not a great lover of AM (the album) Papster. I did include an Arctics run from Humbug though. Your other suggestion is good though.

 

Did you see this when it was on? 3 parts on Youtube.

 

I did not! Cheers for sharing will give it a watch later. Was very lucky to have a chat with him at a charity show in Harrow years ago (organised by Kate Nash no less). Was a really good guy. Amazing how he has managed to carry on after his ill health. Billy Bragg also played, was lucky to chat to him too. I don't agree with him on a lot of things, but it's hard to not love the guys passion. Great songwriter too.

Draft Morning/Wasn't Born to Follow/Get to You (The Byrds, Notorious Byrd Brothers) - helped because it is actually a run. The quintessential essence of 60s hippiedom replete with crazy phased stereo effects

 

After the Gold Rush/Only Love Can Break Your Heart/Southern Man (Neil Young, After the Gold Rush)

The Stone Roses: This Is The One -> I Am The Resurrection -> Fools Gold

 

A small piece of pedantry - this run of songs doesn't exist on the original album release. If Fool's Gold must be included then it should the 12 inch version, IMO.

 

I'll go for:

 

Loose Fit/Dennis and Lois/Bob's Yer Uncle

Little Fluffy Clouds/Earth (Gaia)/Supernova at the End of the Universe
