Saturday Snapshots #27 - The Answers

Well, I tried to make them easier this week... but they're a lot easier when you can see inside my brain and know the answers.

10. Follow the laurel path along the top of the mountains and no one will see you.

Lynchie got the Stan Laurel connection, Alyson puzzled out the rest.

Stan Ridgway - Camouflage 

That was an awfully big marine!

9. Nonsense friends proselytize.

Friends = chums, proselytize = tubthump. The rest is nonsense as far as I can tell. You come up with a better clue!

Chumbawamba - Tubthumping

I get knocked down, but I get up again...

8. Oy! Good guys join the queue in church.

Choirboys in a queue would be Quireboys. Oy is a less polite way of saying Hey You!

Rigid Digit tells me this isn't their finest moment... but it was their biggest hit.

The Quireboys - Hey You!

7. Collins plays a cop in Jerusalem.

No need to call the cops on Chris!

Joan As Policewoman - Holy City

6. Unremarkable Barry deals with a broken cup.

Lynchie was the early bird this week, getting first choice of the juiciest worms. Barry White was anything but average.

Average White Band - Pick Up The Pieces

5. Genius is so close to insanity - take a seat and ponder that.

As I type, nobody's got this yet... which makes rather sad.

Furniture - (You Must Be Out Of Your) Brilliant Mind

4. Pink like Heinz. No doorbell.

Pink Floyd. Heinz sang "Just Like Eddie".

Another one for Lynchie.

Eddie Floyd - Knock On Wood

3.  "This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship," or "Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads." Werewolves: run for your lives!

Charity Chic got the band straight away, then we trawled our way through Bob Seger's entire back catalogue before Chris got the song.

The two lines quoted came from the final scenes of Casablanca and Back To The Future, in case you were wondering.

Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band - The Famous Final Scene

2. Sounds like Jeanette's mother. We're over: do I have to spell it out to you?

Rhymes with Mammy Jeanette? Not my best effort, I know. Fortunately, Lynchie saved me from embarrassment.

Tammy Wynette - D.I.V.O.R.C.E.

1. Second degree burns. Wouldn't wanna be ya!

Second place gets the Silver medal. The Sun burns.

Early Bird Lynchie takes the title this week.

As long as you keep playing, I'll keep digging them out.

More next Saturday...


  1. A great Saturday Snapshots as ever so keep 'em comin' please - Like a few others it seems, I was busy yesterday so couldn't be the early bird (for once) but this brain-teaser always a highlight of the weekend. Been largely absent this week but back to business as usual now and lots of material been gathered for my place - be warned!

    Like you I was amazed no-one got the Furniture song but wouldn't have remembered what they looked like and lots of songs about genius/insanity so a tricky clue.

  2. I humbly accept the title of "King of the Saturday Snapshots #27".

    Good game, good game!

  3. Thanks to an internet search I got the Seger song. Had never heard Brilliant Mind by Furniture before, nice lesser-known 80s tune. Adding the band to my list.

  4. You had a lot of us stumped this week Rol
    Keep 'em coming
