Saturday Snapshots #80 - The Answers

Hey Ya! If you've been Outkast for not knowing the answers to Saturday Snapshots, don't be Unhappy. Yesterday was a 3-all tie for the Early Bird prize between Lynchie & Alyson, but I'm going to award the actual prize to C who spotted those that turned out to be the hardest this week, #5, #1 (with a lot of help from Chris) and especially #10.

It's time to shake it like a Polaroid picture...

10. Bowie's tenant says goodbye.

Most obscure band ever featured here?

David Bowie had an album called Lodger.

"Lodger was formed in 1997 by Supergrass drummer Danny Goffey and his girlfriend Pearl Lowe, the former vocalist with Powder. The line-up was completed by co-vocalist Neil Carlill and guitarist Will Foster, both of Delicatessen."

Lodger - I'm Leaving

No, I'm not familiar with Powder or Delicatessen either, but I did quite like this tune at the time.

9. Catching up with Estefan - death is not an option.

Bit easier this one.

If you were catching up with Estefan, you would be a Gloria Gainer.

Gloria Gaynor - I Will Survive

8. Reclusive Munsters suffer calcium deficiency.

Herman Munster, reclusive, would be a Hermit.

Herman's Hermits - No Milk Today

7. Enemies of Brexit near their end.

Those in support of Brexit consider themselves enemies of Europe.

(And if anyone is any doubt about where I stand on that: Brexit is the worst thing to happen to this country since WWII.)

Europe - The Final Countdown

Ms. May, of course, seems to allow herself as many final countdowns as she wants until everybody votes her way. Sigh.

6. Leonardo DiCaprio visits Spanish grocer's.

Bodega - Jack In Titanic

Good spot from Chris.

5. Casserole painting & petroleum relation plan a gathering.

Stew-art and Gas-Kin?

Dave Stewart & Barbara Gaskin - It's My Party

(Up until putting this post together, I honestly thought this was Dave Stewart from the Eurythmics. Turns out he was actually the keyboardist in a number of prog bands: Uriel, Egg, Khan, Hatfield and the North, National Health, and Bruford. Gaskin was in some of those bands too.)

4. Fairytale brothers tell cruel stories about cursed beavers.

The Brothers Grimm tell fiendish stories about damned dams?

The Damned - Grimly Fiendish

3. Charlie's cherubs complain about sweetheart's rear.

Charlie's Angels, obviously.

The Angels - My Boyfriend's Back

2. Confused eel gas helps you chill out.

Eel gas is a confused anagram of Eagles.

The Eagles - Take It Easy

1. Old detective magazines get mashed up within house of Eels.

Old detective magazines were pulp, so is mashed up wood.

Eels sang about Susan's House.

This was the first Pulp song I ever heard. After this, there was no going back...

I'm sorry, Ms. Jackson, you'll have to wait till next Saturday for any more of these...


  1. "Brexit is the worst thing to happen to this country since WWII". The problem is that a lot of Brexiteers think it still is World War II, hence the outrageous statements by the likes of Mark Francois about his father not "bending the knee" to the Germans in World War II. The rest of them seem to believe that Britain still has an empire. Above all that is the incredible arrogance of people who think that they are entitled to be treated as special because England won two World Wars and one World Cup.

    Anyways, even though me and Alyson got more correct answers than anyone else, I think it's fair that C gets the prize cos he got the answers to the more difficult questions.

  2. Indeed. But *she*, before C complains about the inadvertent sex-change.

    1. Yep, definitely a woman last time I looked :-)

  3. Ah thanks Rol, I came in late with my mop and bucket and just got lucky!

  4. Yes, C was definitely the winner yesterday - Tough clues but she cracked them.

  5. My apologies to C for changing her gender.
