Saturday Snapshots #15 - The Answers

Arise, Sir Ringo. As for the rest of you...

10. Last men standing after staring down a rocky pussycat.

Last men standing would be the survivors.

You stare with your eyes.

A big pussycat is a tiger.

This comes from Rocky III. Mr. T rules!

Survivor - Eye Of The Tiger

There is some excellent walking in this video.

George won this with no shame. I like that.

9. Get hurt pogoing at home.

Pogoing is jumping around.

If you got hurt at home, it might be a house of pain.

House of Pain - Jump Around

The Swede obviously remembered jumping around to this one. As did C.

8. Pretentious (pretentious... pretentious...) place where James Brown lives.

Pretentious = Pseudo.

Is there an echo in here?

James Brown lives in Funkytown, obviously.

Pseudo Echo - Funkytown

C cracked the cryptic clue, then claimed to have blanked any memory of Pseudo Echo's "hit" from her mind. Brian came to the rescue, saying, "We are laughing our asses off listening right now. Worse than I even remember." Now remember, Brian, every record featured in Saturday Snapshots comes from my own personal collection. I'd never feature an artist here that I don't own at least one song by. So watch what you...

No, you're right. It's pretty awful.

7. A Rutger Hauer film makes Mica hot.

No, this is not The Hitcher. Or Blade Runner. It's Ladyhawke.

If Mica Paris got hot, she would be burning.

Ladyhawke - Paris Is Burning

George was on fire again today too. Chris got it too, but too late was the cry.

6. What Roy Orbison, Huey Lewis, Billy Bragg, Transvision Vamp, The Black Keys and The Charlatans (almost) have in common. A song for Princess Leia.

Roy Orbison

Huey Lewis & The News

Billy Bragg

Transvision Vamp

The Black Keys

The Charlatans

At the end of The Empire Strikes Back, the ghost of Yoda tells the ghost of Obi Wan, "that boy was our only hope." Ben replies, "no, there is another..." His sister...

The Only Ones - Another Girl, Another Planet

I was surprised nobody got this before The Swede too.

5. Huxley's perception catches a bus in the clouds.

Too easy!

The Doors are named after Aldous Huxley's book The Doors Of Perception.

If you caught a bus in the clouds, you'd be a...

The Doors - Riders On The Storm

What. A. Song.

A clear victory for George.

4. Welsh LP records worship Onan.

Dai is a popular Welsh name.

LP records are vinyl.

You can look Onan up for yourselves.

The Divinyls - I Touch Myself

The Swede beat off all challengers to take this one. (Sorry.)

3. This is irrelevant. Get in your car and go, James.

No explanation needed, surely?

It's Immaterial - Driving Away From Home (Jim's Tune)

A good win for Alyson (though nobody recalled Jim's Tune).

2. Southern state loses its bottom half. Ha - and you fell for it!

Texas is a southern state. If it lost its ass, it'd be Tex.

I gotcha!

Joe Tex - I Gotcha!

CC got Joe Tex, then stumbled on the song. George came along to collect the Noel Edmonds trophy.

1. Nobility in the police force. The bridge is apt.

The police are Bobbies (well, in Britain... they used to be).

Nobility are Gentry.

What did she throw off that bridge?

Unsurprisingly, Charity Chic got this one straight away.

Bobbie Gentry - Ode To Billy Joe

More next week. Some, even worse.


  1. Had a childish snicker at your comment to the Swede on number 4

  2. I bought the Survivor single on its release, still have it, and still think it's a likeable song. I don't get it out and play it very much.....

    1. But you watch Rocky III every third Wednesday of the month, don't you?

  3. Brilliant as usual. Too brilliant, in fact.

  4. Oh, I’m sure I loved that cover when it came out in ‘’85. It was a big hit here. We never heard from them again though. The clues were particularly good this week, Rol.

    1. The thing is, Lipps Inc. would open itself up to great clues too. But they had some other songs BESIDES Funkytown, so don't be surprised if they pop up here at some point.
