#NotBaconBitsAdvent - Day 5: From Jerry Garcia to...

Yesterday on the #NotBaconBitsAdvent calendar we played Jerry Garcia, so what did you choose for today's song? You can thank @Wolfpaw36 for this one...

Find the rest of the #NotBaconBitsAdvent calendar here

As always for #NotBaconBits, once you've listened to today's choice, we're looking for your suggestions for tomorrow's track. Join in by tweeting us your suggestions @albiemediaAM with the #NotBaconBitsAdvent hashtag or adding your suggestions in the comments of our #NotBaconBitsAdvent Facebook or Instagram post every day - remember the link can be as simple or contrived as you want, in any music genre (it doesn't have to be classical or pop) and you can link to anything about the song - the title, the artist, words in the song, something about the video ... anything as long as you can explain how you got there and show your workings. 

BUT REMEMBER for the #NotBaconBitsAdvent Calendar there must ALSO be a festive link of some sort AS WELL! Whether it's something in the name of the song or band/singer, or it was a Christmas number one, or that it mentions something festive like snow or fairylights or whatever, we're looking for a DOUBLE LINK this time around.

If we pick your suggestion for the next song link in the chain, you'll get the credit in that day's article and shout outs on our social networking streams.

Well, the suggestions for today's linked song went from the sublime to the ridiculous [we'll leave you to sort out which is which - Ed] with @STBwrites wanting to link from The Grateful Dead to the Dead Kennedys' Advice from Christmas Past and @JimJamGin plucking the mandolin out as a link to Steeleye Span's Gaudete. However, today's song comes from @WolfPaw36's suggestion:

"Grateful Dead were based/formed in Palo Alto, California. Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac was born and raised there. So....this from the wonderful Christine McVie..."

And a beautiful tribute to the much missed singer too - here's Coventry Carol.

So, how do you follow that? What's your connection suggestion for tomorrow? Fleetwood Mac? Coventry? Carol?! Let us know in the comments...
