The Mind's Tricks

By sheer randomness I'm having a flashback to my teen years and am listening to W.A.S.P.  (yes, yes, I know.)  The first track just finished (The Heretic) and my brain instantly started playing _something_ next.  Something which wasn't the next track - but was instantly obliterated by the actual next track (a cover of The Who's "The Real Me").

So I rewound, listened to the last 20 seconds of the track again, and this time recognised what my brain was expecting - the opening chords of Number Of The Beast.  Clearly, back in 1988(or so) I made a mixtape that followed up W.A.S.P. with Iron Maiden.*

Aaaah, them were the days.

*I wonder if I could use a similar process to put back together the entire album.  Sadly, I suspect that many of the linkages would by now have been entirely overwritten.
