YouTube game

The rules are simple. Any number of players, everybody puts a tune on during their turn. The choice of music is free. You win, when you discover something amazing you haven’t heard before (Temptations “Zoom”, anyone?). You lose, when you get something like Lady Gaga. We did two sessions in Bei Jing with amazing results. It is mind-blowing when you discover that other people from different countries and with different backgrounds share a music taste similar to yours. Anyways here are the sets list for both sessions (everything is on YouTube). Rather Blue Room-ish material.
