Boil the Frog Traces Music Evolution Between Artists

Boil the Frog is the kind of curious web-app we love to play with. Plug in two musical artists and it will generate a playlist that transitions you from the genre/style of the first artist to that of the second. How many hops does it take to get from Buddy Holly to Prince?

According to Boil the Frog it’s 15 hops–you’ll stop along the way to listen to Chubby Checker, Percy Sledge, and George Clinton. Hit up the link below to start connecting artists and discovering the musical links between them.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.
