Re: WODS jingles, songs-in-a-row

The automation used to be famous for playing songs on top of each other.  I
remember one Beatles/Rolling Stones night where one song started, 1/2 way
through a second started, then a third.  The first song ended and another
started.  This cycle kept up for about an hours.

It kind of redefined "3 songs in a row".
