    24-Mar-14: A friend of mine came up with this idea of a three song set where
    the performer of the second song covered a song written by the performer of the first song of
    the set and the performer of the third song covered a song by the writer
    of the second song in the set. It took some research but I was able to follow
    the script fairly well.
