Saturday Snapshots #67 - The Answers

And they called it Puppy Love... but I guess they'll never know the appeal of Saturday Snapshots, will they?

Some "tough ones" (they were all easy to me!) and a few Saturday morning lie-ins split the marks this week. Two points each to Alyson, C and Rigid Digit. 1 point each to Charity Chic, Walter and Chris. As I type this, #9 remains unanswered.

Hopefully you weren't Too Young to know all of these...

10. Telstar klaxons.

Lawrence of Arabia.

Blackout is when the lights go out.

Georgia On My Mind.

Vicki Lawrence - The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia

8. Action Man stares at his favourite pie... decides to leave it for this evening.

When I was 10, having a bog-standard Action Man wasn't enough. You had to have the Eagle Eye Action Man.

Cherry pie... save it for tonight.

Eagle Eye Cherry - Save Tonight

7. Henry's southern brother made a car that was too heavy for the road.

Surely one of the most exciting intros to any song ever?

2. Religious bondage duo enjoy the shower.

1. Mobile undertakers at the terminus.

Clue of the week. Sometimes they write themselves.

The video for this was recorded after the Big O's passing. They handle that very well.

No need to wait until the Twelfth of Never - Saturday Snapshots will be back next week...


  1. I know the top 4. The rest are new to me and demand further inspection. Fun as always to take part!

  2. Mr WIAA spent a fair bit of time yesterday trying to get to the bottom of who was in picture no. 9 - As it turns out I have never heard of Vicki Lawrence, so was on a hiding to nothing! What I did find out though, was that a Sheik's wife is called a Shaykhah, which led me to Chaka Khan which was obviously wrong. Always new stuff to learn.

    1. I'm not sure it was ever a UK hit, actually. But it's the sort of thing I might have expected to find making an appearance at your place.

  3. That should have read Mr WIAA "and I", spent a fair bit of time. He was just there for support!
