Saturday Snapshots #72 - The Answers

It may not feel much like a Pleasant Valley Sunday on the weekend we said goodbye to this gentlemen, but he certainly left us with some amazing musical memories.

RIP, Peter Tork, you and your pals made us all daydream believers...

As I type this on Saturday evening, we've had no takers for this week's number 10... which might be my first win in quite some time. Otherwise, Lynchie took the crown, with admirable support from Charity Chic, Walter, Chris, Rigid Digit and a last minute save by C.

10. King Midas's stooge sounds like the bloke up above.

King Midas turned everything he touched to solid gold.

Mo was one of the Three Stooges.

The gentleman at the top of yesterday's post was David Soul

Mo Solid Gold - David's Soul

If you've never heard that before, it's worth 4 minutes of your time.

9. Sly Lincoln reveals what you have to do (to get the answer to this clue).

Sly Lincoln is an anagram.

Lyn Collins - Think (About It)

8. Pioneering agriculturist mishears Sister Sledge's greatest tune.

Jethro Tull was the pioneering agriculturist who invented the seed drill.

Sister Sledge sang He's The Greatest Dancer.

Jethro Tull - Said She Was A Dancer

7. Maureen's below-the-belt punch is a knock out at 8.30 on a Saturday morning.

Maureen, shortened, is Mo.

A below the belt punch would be Lo.

A knock-out is a K-O.

8.30 on Saturday morning is when yesterday's post went live.

Moloko - The Time Is Now

6. Rod dates a feminist... and they both refuse to get undressed.

Imagine if Rod Stewart & Germaine Greer went on a date. I doubt either of them would take their clothes off.

Jermaine Stewart - We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off

5. Arse / Elbow confusion for Destiny's Child's Perfect Cousin.

Kelly Rowland was in Destiny's Child.

My Perfect Cousin was Kevin.

If your confuse your arse with your elbow, you might not know your bottom half from your top.

Kevin Rowland - I Can't Tell The Bottom From The Top

4. Is there life here? (Sorry, hang on a second...) IS THERE LIFE HERE!?! 

Is there life on Mars? Do I need to repeat that, louder?

M/A/R/R/S - Pump Up The Volume

3. Where the wildcatters found oil... devilish women buy the drinks.

Wildcatters looked for oil anywhere, but cats are Kitties and oil comes from wells.

Honky tonks are bars.

If god didn't make the angels, chances are the devil did.

Kitty Wells - It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels

2. Oh My Dog! B-29.

If Oh My God is OMG in today's parlance, Oh My Dog would be OMD.

B-29 was the first Boeing Superfortress bomber to drop an atomic bomb. The plane was named Enola Gay after the pilot's mother.

OMD - Enola Gay

1. Supermarket delivery for Hazel.

A supermarket delivery might come in a van from Morrison's.

Hazel is another name for brown eyes.

Isn't it reassuring than Van Morrison even looked like a Grumpy Old Man when he was a baby?

I'm A Believer you'll be back for more next Saturday...


  1. I've a Mo Solid Gold CD Single somewhere

  2. A toughie of a quiz. And a good win on Number 10 for you Rol. Have to say I've never heard of Mo Solid Gold, but I'll check out that track.

  3. That Lyn Collins funk song was a great discovery this morning
