Musical coincidences # 314

October 11, 2012

My friend Michael (Hi, Michael!) spotted all of the coincidences in today’s effort. The main song, “Runaway” by The McCoys, reminded him of four other songs. Michael reckons this might set some kind of record for amount of coincidences emanating from one song. (I think he’s right, because I can’t think of any other coincidence I’ve posted that involved five songs all at once.)

Oh, and all the coincidences occur within the first 50 seconds of that McCoys song. Talk about packin’ ’em in.

Here we go:
