Saturday Snapshots #40

I come from the land of the ice and snow, from the midnight sun where the hot springs blow... to bring you Saturday Snapshots.

Identify ten artists and their songs from the clues below, please...

10. God, the German trees in France are all conifers.

9. Emergency! There's knaves in the cellar!

8. Is my belle surprised? I'll ask her.

7. These guys certainly don't own a Blue Nile album. And their disco is full of cotton wool.

6. Bah! Clomp is not a man.

5. Morrissey's window cleaner dines with bright kings.

4. Saint swaps chainmail and dumps January's aviator.

3. B.A. hires The Cars for dim bulbs.

2. Little David Bowie's noisy band RSVP.

1. Playgirl fantasies on Martha's beach run from the barber.

There'll be a Whole Lotta Love if you come back tomorrow for the answers...


  1. 4 Joan Armatrading - Drop the Pilot

  2. 7 Men without Hats- The Safety Dance

  3. 1. Martha & The Muffins - Echo Beach

    3. Booker T. & the M.G.'s - Green Onions

  4. 8. Michelle Shocked - don't know the song.

  5. 10. Norman Greenbaum (My Higher Level German got me there!) - Spirit In The Sky.

  6. No. 1 Echo and the Bunnymen - The Cutter

  7. Replies
    1. Struggling with the song from the clue I'm afraid.

  8. You might need Brian's help with #2...

  9. Darn - I got confused with the for #1.

  10. No 2 band is the dB’s. Don’t know the song

    1. Well done. Reckon that puts you in the lead this week.

    2. Hey there. I'm on vacation, but I couldn't help but take a peek just now from the hotel. Could the song be Write Back? I'm thinking you may have had something else in mind even though the clue fits because that's a somewhat obscure song. It began as a B-side, in fact. Then again, maybe you have the album Falling Off the Sky. It did appear there later. Hmm. I do recall you taking a shine to them. Anyway, congrats to CC for getting the band.

    3. As they were never really a thing over here, I have no idea what their popular stuff is and what's considered obscure... but Write Back is a favourite from the tracks I won.

      Have a great holiday, Brian.

  11. This late on Saturday and still one left.

    9. Basement Jaxx - Red Alert
