Saturday Snapshots #24 - The Answers

Sorry, I wasn't around on Saturday night this week to do the scoring. Answers only, then...

I'll try to give credit where credit is deserved in the comments later...

10. When Harry met Karen, he was still a virgin. A good snog sorted that out.

Harry Chapin + Karen Carpenter + The Virgin Mary...

Mary Chapin-Carpenter - Passionate Kisses

9. Crossing the snow while getting down: that would be my desire.

Skee-lo - I Wish

8. A Scottish thief  gets your sleeping quarters ready.

Ian McNabb - You Must Be Prepared To Dream

7. They failed Humpty Dumpty: the FBI were brought in to investigate their strong-arm tactics.

All the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put Humpty together again.

Strong arm = Armstrong (Louis)

The Kingsmen were investigated by the FBI who suspected the lyrics to Louie Louie were either subversive or pornographic. They were actually just gibberish, as Todd Snider explains here.

The Kingsmen - Louie Louie

6. An open invitation to boogie from Texas.

Whitney Houston - I Wanna Dance With Somebody

5. Calling myself a testicle. ID required.

Apparently, Kloot is Dutch slang for testicle.

I Am Kloot - Proof

4. Woken up early by repeated bangs.

Dawn (featuring Tony Orlando, of course) - Knock Three Times

3. Hit in the gob with burnt feet.

Smashmouth - Walking On The Sun

2. Listening to The Knack, Toto and Hall & Oates on the wireless while cutting a Roman into four.

The Knack, Toto and Hall & Oates all recorded songs called Africa.

Latin Quarter - Radio Africa

1. Girls want them... but not every evening.

Thanks for playing. More next week.


  1. I am Groot (and I think I got 5 points!)

  2. Excellent as always. But I prefer Chris's answer to No. 5 - the Bollock Brothers :-)

    1. Whomever thought up 'Bollock Brothers' must have been drunk :) It sounds like a joke. Those punk bands had some funny names.

      The early 90s country hits by Mary Chapin-Carpenter fill me with nostalgia. Used to hear them on CMT Europe-don't know if the channel still exists

    2. I will try to feature the Bollock Brothers some other time. I won't blame anyone if they mistake them for Oasis.

  3. Now that I know the Dutch slang for testicle I feel that my life is just about complete

    1. You never know when it might come in handy!
