Saturday Snapshots #20 - The Answers



Sunday morning. No video games... just snapshot answers.



10. Paddington loves... a mirror of memories.


Marmalade - Reflections Of My Life

First point to Lynchie.


9. Russian prostitutes want you to dress like Prince.


Gogol Bordello - Start Wearing Purple

Half a point each to C and CC.


8. At home in the vineyard: I really am rubbish... aren't I?


Amy Winehouse - You Know I'm No Good

First point of the week to Chris.


7. The way we say thank you differs in many places. Anyone seen Gabriel?


Ta varies.

Please yourself.

Tavares - Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel

Second point to Lychie.

6. Prisoner Pat finds new job in elementary house.


A little deduction required for this one.

Some time after The Prisoner TV show finished, Patrick McGoohan appeared in a short-lived US TV series called Rafferty.

Sherlock Holmes lived on Baker Street. Elementary, my dear Watson.

Gerry Rafferty - Baker Street

(Bob Holness on sax, of course.)

Congrats to Lynchie for puzzling that one out.

5. Take a train to a southern amusement park... but don't tell the missus!


The train mentioned above, from which the band took their name, was called The Kursaal Flyer.

Kursaal Flyers - Little Does She Know

Well done to The Swede, beating George to it by about 90 seconds.


4. Iron Man goes fawlty over the mouse.


Tony Stark + Basil Fawlty + Mickey Mouse...

Toni Basil - Mickey

Another point to Chris - doing very well this week.


3. Mad King balances Yin & Yang with his wrecking crew.


The Mad King was George.

Balancing Yin & Yang would be (Thoro)Good & Bad (To The Bone).

George Thorogood & The Destroyers - Bad To The Bone

Lynchie knew this one, but C beat him to it.


2. Innoculation for scuba divers.


The Vaccines - Wet Suit

Another point for Chris!


1. He's desperate to join the Beach Boys - could use a rosary!


If Desperate Dan became a Wilson, perhaps he could join The Beach Boys.

The Rosary is a prayer to the Virgin Mary.

Danny Wilson - Mary's Prayer

Final point to Lynchie, making him this week's winner, just ahead of Chris. Well done, everybody.




More nonsense next Saturday.

  1. Ah the Vaccines! I was thinking of the Jags but understandably couldn't find an appropriate song

    1. The Jags!? I think I'll avoid visiting Dr. Charity Chic for my vaccinations.

  2. Missed out altogether this week but enjoyed seeing how you'd put together the clues. Would only have recognised Danny Wilson and perhaps worked out another couple but well done everyone.

  3. I did quite well (for a change). Must be knowledge of 21st century artists and rewatches of Fawlty Towers.

    Also, the new-to-me songs in the quiz this week were really enjoyable!
