Saturday Snapshots #9


Say cheese... or cheesy!

Ten clues to ten great songs by ten great artists. Who can guess them first?



10. Len met Adam x 2. Said hi to drugs from a witch doctor.


9. Restaurant for birds: glue on the menu.


8. Hayes goes feminine on the road to the Cathedral: won't stop listening to Bruce's longest player.


7. The Amarillo Hulk avoids the Flaming Lips' postman.


6. Spock's killer loses her pliers while sympathising with Prince.


5. Find your fortune in Motown and you'll always stay warm.


4. The 18th provost makes you a suit despite being hunted by Harrison.


3. The sound made by a feuerwehrauto, after almost a century of hot air.


2. Go to the chemist for gender realignment.


1. Scared by basic Maths? Be polite to Quincy.

The only question remaining...

How long will it take Martin to get them all?

    1. Song might be Let The River Run. Going to stop now but No. 10 is just so familiar but can't remember his name - Going to kick myself when I find out. I see TS has offered up another song title but I was thinking it was a refererence to George Harrison?

    2. The woman does look remarkably like Carly Simon! The answer could go either way, although I've got a bit more faith in Sonya Isaacs and the fact I remember Rol is a Coen Brothers fan.

  11. No.1 is Paul (or Barry) Ryan. 'Eloise' - hello E's?

  12. That's me done. My thinking cap has run out of steam.

    1. Glad you got No 10 before I signed off as it would have bugged me all day - Now I know why I had the name Barry Blue going around in my head (and they do look quite alike in that pic).

      Delete
  13. So... We're still looking for 9, 7 and 5. Any takers?

  14. I feel I should know the band for no 5 from the picture.
    Glad I don't recognize no 7!

    1. I reckon you would know the band, although it's quite a recent picture and the singer's hair used to be shorter.

    1. You're right.

      It's not them.

      Delete
    2. Although Penguin Cafe Orchestra would be a much better answer for that clue.

      Delete
  16. 9 Feeder
    (No idea on the track though)

    6 Chaka Khan - I Feel For You

    3 Nena - Neunundneunzig Luftballons

  17. I feel sure I've seen/read about No. 5 on another blog round these parts, but can't remember who/when, frustrating!
    And too late for the two I did know (Barry Ryan and Nena), so a poor show from me this week - still I look forward to the answers and the unravelling of your clues.

  18. 5. Lucky Soul. Song... Ain't Never Been Cool?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh, and 9. Feeder, as others have said. But song? Going to take a punt on Suffocate, just on the basis that if glue was on the menu it would stick your mouth together, making it hard to breathe. Tenuous, I know :(
