If you had to kill one musical artist or band and give all their songs to another musical artist or band who would you kill and give their songs to?
To clarify, the band you ‘kill’ ceases to exist and in this new reality that the other band has written and performs all their songs. Why ask such a question? Well it’s interesting and it’s a good way to learn about new music.
Here’s what people have said to me in the format x -> y where x dies and y gets their songs.
Passion Pit -> LCD Sound System
Travis Bretzer -> Roy Orbison
Coldplay -> Matthew and the Atlas
Fleet Foxes -> Simon and Garfunkel
Beck -> Cake
JayZ -> Mos Def
The Beach Boys -> T-Rex
Radiohead -> The Flaming Lips
Mumford and Sons -> Morning Siders
Bob Dylan -> July Talk
Train -> Brian Eno
9 inch nails -> Adele
Kurt Vile -> The War on Drugs
The Black Keys -> Super Tramp
