Breaking Musical Law

On my way into work this morning, as I was switching out CDs for the audiobook I'm listening too, the radio station that came on (94.7) broke musical law. It was a horrible atrocity and I was genuinely surprised, especially by the sequence of songs that was played.

The song that was playing as I switched out audiobooks was none other than Queen's Another One Bites the Dust. Musical law dictates that this must be followed by the We Are the Champions. But that wasn't what happened. Instead, Another One Bites the Dust was followed by The Hustle. WTF? The Hustle? There are only four unique words in that fucking "song." This will not do. Admittedly, I wasn't really in the mood to listen to either Queen song, and in fact I ended up popping in an Eagles of Death Metal CD because the audiobook I'm listening to right now is making me a little stabby. However, it is musical law, and I must rectify it.

Understand that if you listen to one, you must listen to the other.

That's why I listen to The Loop. Everything is in the right order there.

I don't have The Loop in my presets, but I might be adding it now that 101.1 is news all the time.

I still can't fathom what sinister mind came up with a pairing like Another One Bites the Dust and The Hustle. That's like playing Fat Bottomed Girls and then The Macarena instead of Bicycle Race.
