I swear it was all random. The weirdest coincidences were “Falling in Love” (“Jaded”) and “Mental Breakdown” (“Under Pressure”). This was a pretty fun meme to do. Okay, it’s your turn. I’d be interested to see how it turns out for strausmouse and kevnyc because their music collections (and knowledge) is daunting compared to mine.
