Saturday Snapshots #23 - The Answers

Lose Yourself in the answers to this week's quiz... while pondering what your Saturdays would be like Without Me...

10. Bizet's loneliness.

Bizet's most famous opera was Carmen.

Eric Carmen - All By Myself

Rigid Digit woke up first this weekend to snap this one up.

9. Animal doctor siblings stir feelings between us.

An animal doctor is a vet. D'oh.

The Avett Brothers - I And Love And You

Knew Charity Chic would get this one.

8. Van & Laura's girl won't die.

Van Morrison and Laura Branigan both sang about Gloria.

Gloria Gaynor - I Will Survive

Another point for Rigid Digit.

7. A blogging hero gets sad about his tactile addiction.

The Swede gets the blues... But Alyson gets the clue.

Blue Swede - Hooked On A Feeling

6. Billet doux on the cost of keeping time.

Metronomes keep time. Economy counts the cost.

Metronomy - Love Letters

Well done, Chris.

5. 50 shades of spliff will have you floating off...

A spliff is a doobie (hence The Doobie Brothers). 50 Shades of Grey, obviously.

Dobie Gray - Drift Away

Lynchie was hip enough to get this one.

4. An indistinct packet of Alecia's daylight.

Pink!'s real name is Alecia Beth Moore.

An indistinct packet would be a fuzzy box.

Fuzzbox (or, if you prefer, We've Got a Fuzzbox and We're Gonna Use It!!) - Pink Sunshine

Another point for RD!

3. I am intensely enthusiastic about Franka Potente.

As Chris pointed out, I spelled Franka Potente incorrectly. Sorry, that wasn't part of the clue.

The Passions - I'm In Love With A German Filmstar

Half a point to Lynchie, half a point to Chris.

2. American mother reveals excessive excerpts of erotic envy.

Momus - A Complete History Of Sexual Jealousy (parts 17 to 24)

Lynchie got the artist (half a point), The Swede beat Chris to the song by one minute (half a point).

1. Gregory Peck goes west for a solitary fireplace.

Gregory Peck was in a western called The Big Country.

A fireplace has a grate.

Another one for Rigid Digit, making him this week's undisputed winner.

Thanks for playing. More next week.


  1. Yes, sorry to TS - should really have left Blue Swede for him but sounds as if it didn’t make him too blue! Just chuffed there was still a point left to nab when I got here late yesterday.

  2. An excellent edition of Snapshots Rol, aa ever.

  3. I am in awe as to how you make up these clues. It hurts my brain just thinking about it.

  4. This "Waking up early on a Saturday" has definite benefits for the ego.
    I'll admit to getting over-excited when I was posting the answers (sometimes at the second attempt) before anyone else got there.
    Usually late to the party, but not this time.
    Think I might finally be getting the hang of your cryptic-ness

  5. I ought to look into The Passions back catalogue. I love that song by them
