Song Pairings from Different Albums/Eras that Work

The other day I was jammin' to a shuffle playlist when Dolphin from "Gold Experience" came on. I hadn't heard it in a while and it was a lovely time as it makes me feel a bit more at peace.

.

After Dolphin, the shuffle went to Resolution from "Planet Earth" and it sounded soooo goooood. Almost like these two were meant to go together.

.

Today while on a walk I was blasting Black Sweat on my headphones. At the ending the beat sort of dissipates and shuffle provided "They'll Never B (Another Like Me)" from MPLSound which begins with a beat sort of generating itself. The two blended together so well it made me smile. I wanna play with them on my digital turntables later to see if I can make it even more seamless a pairing.

.

Have you ever found yourself impressed at an unexpected shuffle or playlist arrangement? I am specifically interested in pairings of two, maybe three songs.

That's awesome man! I blended Animal kingdom after Dolphin the other day and the ocean effect worked As a great bridge between the two.

It may sound weird, but Head and then Something In The Water.
Must be something in the water we drink.

I usually play da bourgeoisie after the rainbow children (cut of right before the instrumental part). It's fun to hear prince say "seriously" right after the deep voice monologue smile

Everytime I listen to "Money don't matter" I can't help but think about When Doves Cry.

Like when he sings: "Money don't matter tonight." I automatically think that: "This is what it sounds like." Sounds JUST A BIT similar.

Thank you! I've been trying to work in rainbow children material but some of it is so heavy and the deep voice is a shuffle vibe killer. Imprimis I like your ideas a lot too.

Plus Money has that soft ending, the guitar at the top of WDC might work. Or I could continue on with the money theme and do $ or Beverly Park from Lotus.

She spoke to me extended followed by strollin' is also a smooth combination. I'm a sucker for mixed tapes. Like to make my own compilations. Never chronologically. Always jumping from one era to another. For me prince never had a dull period. There are treasures in every decade.

On my self-made compilations, one of my all time favorites is "Baby" into "I Wanna Be Your Lover." That huge orchestra finish into the solo pickup drum always sounds so great.
