The Cosmetic Ultralounge

Sequel Songs

By Gunner Glam

If there is one concept Studio Brow desires to emphasize, it is about taking beauty which is already there and enhancing it tenfold for the future.

Sequel songs are recordings that directly refer to a previously recorded song. Sometimes they take an opposing viewpoint, show a different perspective or continue the story as a sequel. This playlist contains the original songs as well as the sequels to the original by the artist.

Barrett Strong – Money (That’s What I Want) and Money and Me.

Bobby “Boris” Pickett – Monster Mash and Monster Rap.

Buddy Holly – Peggy Sue and Peggy Sue Got Married.

Charlie Daniel’s Band – The Devil Went Down to Georgia and The Devil Went Back to Georgia.

Chubby Checker – The Twist and Let’s Twist Again.

Chuck Berry – Johnny B. Goode and Bye Bye Johnny.

David Bowie – Space Oddity and Ashes to Ashes.

Edwin Starr – War and Stop the War Now.

Godsmack – Voodoo and Voodoo Too.

Harry Chapin – Taxi and Sequel.

Hourglass – Pawn and Pawn II.

Iron Maiden – Charlotte the Harlot and 22 Acacia Avenue.

Jr. Walker & All Stars – Cleo’s Mood and Cleo’s Back.

The Killers – Jenny Was a Friend of Mine, is a part of The Killers’ alleged Murder Trilogy, which is three songs detailing the murder of a girl named Jenny, the other two being Midnight Show and Leave the Bourbon on the Shelf. The song is told by the point of view of a man who has been taken in for questioning about Jenny’s murder. The songs have no resolution of the crime nor is it ever clarified if the man was guilty.

The Marvelettes – Please Mr. Postman and Twistin’ Postman.

Megadeth – Hanger 18 and Return to Hanger 18.

Metallica – The Unforgiven I, II and III.

The Miracles – Shop Around and Debbie Dean Don’t Let Him Shop Around.

Nas – N.Y. State of Mind and N.Y. State of Mind Part II.

Pearl Jam – Alive and Once formed part of a song cycle Vedder called the Mamasan Trilogy. The third song, Footsteps, appeared as a B-side on the Jeremy single. Vedder said the lyrics told the story of a young man whose father died in Alive, causing him to go on a killing spree during Once which leads to his capture and execution in Footsteps. It was later revealed that Vedder’s lyrics were inspired by his long-held hurt in discovering at age 17 that the man he thought was his father was actually not and his real father had already died.

Pink Floyd – Another Brick in the Wall Part 1, 2 and 3.

The Ramones – Judy is a Punk and The Return of Jackie and Judy.

Rush – Cygnus X-1 and Cygnus X-1 Book II – Hemispheres.

Slipknot – Vermillion and Vermillion Part II.

System of a Down – Soldier Side intro and Soldier Side.

Thelma Houston – Don’t leave me this way and I’m Here Again.
