A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. - James Dent

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I've got a challenge for you. I want you to list a chain of songs that are connected by artists.

For example, the first song might be "Everything Has Changed" by Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran.
The next song would have to have either Taylor Swift or Ed Sheeran, plus another artist. Maybe I'd choose "I Was Made for Loving You" by Ed Sheeran and Tori Kelly.
The next song would have to have Tori Kelly and somebody else besides Ed Sheeran, and on and on.

You may use the internet.

Who can get the longest chain?

Best,
-the Goose Girl

Dear Goose Girl, 

Story Time! I spent like 6 hours on this answer the other day and then the STINKING BOARD didn't autosave it and then logged me out and I lost all my progress! So I came back and tried to put it back together, and I ended up getting to the same number of songs (200) but I know this list isn't identical to the one I made two days ago. All this to say, I understand why I'm the only person to do this, because it was rough. I think I could have gone farther than 200 songs, but once I got past like 150, it got really difficult to not re-use the same artists to make connections. I hope you accept my offering. 

* Also, fun fact, Snoop Dogg is the artist featured on the most songs (not in my list, but just in general), with upwards of 500 features.

Dear Goose Girl,

Can you use one song more than once? Because, if so, then I'm afraid that Band Aid offers a power too great to be wielded by even the great omniscience of the 100 Hour Board (to say nothing of other groups such as USA for Africa).

-Frère Rubik was too intimidated by the dreadful might of "Do They Know It's Christmas" to even attempt this challenge
