Saturday Snapshots #98: The Answers friend, are blowing in the wind...

10. When Caesar died, in a car.

Well done to C for cracking this obscurity.

Check your history books.

Great tune, but Charlie always warned me to stay away from men like these.

The Ides of March - Vehicle

9. Geordie says he can get down, but keeps his head up high.

Geordies get "doon", so Doon I can.

Val Doonican - Walk Tall

Yes, I know Faron Young did it too, but I grew up with Val's version... probably thanks to Uncle Tel.

Val Doonican is nothing to be embarrassed about, Alyson!

8. Our blogs are this. Our blogs are this. Our blogs are this. (+96)

The Soundtrack Of Our Lives - Instant Repeater '99

Nobody remembered this lot. Imagine if Oasis had been any good. A Beatles rip-off done right!

7. Bluebirds of prey hang around till it stops raining.

Jays are blue birds. Hawks are birds of prey.

Jayhawks - Waiting For The Sun

(Not Save It For A Rainy Day, that would be the opposite!)

6. Found in Rome, with Ivy. Put a sock in it, lady.

Well done and a warm welcome to new player Back From The Beach. Hope to see you round these parts again soon.

The Holly & The Ivy?

Long before Wendy James...

Holly & The Italians - Tell That Girl To Shut Up

5. A boy and his Great Pyrenees won't put down these bestsellers.

"Belle et Sébastien is a novel by Cécile Aubry about a six-year-old boy named Sébastien and his dog Belle, a Great Pyrenees, who live in a village in the French Alps close to the Italian border."

Belle & Sebastian - Wrapped Up In Books

4. Plastic pop lady leaves you surprised! (And often vacant.)

Remember Yazz & The Plastic Population? Oooh, that's a surprise.

Situations are often vacant.

Yazoo - Situation

3. Spanish wolf falls for canine surprise, along with all of us.

Lobo is the Spanish word for wolf.

Boo! That's a surprise.

Lobo - Me & You & A Dog Named Boo

Lobo is nothing to be embarrassed about, Lynchie! Check out some of his early albums. Class stuff.

2. Ewing boy goes by foot with sporting heroes. Meep meep!

J.R. Ewing is a walker, with his All Stars.

The Roadrunner went Meep Meep.

J.R. Walker & The All Stars - (I'm A) Roadrunner

1. Molly acts Rick... but neither of them can work out the answer.

"Molly acts Rick" is an anagram.

Don't get Tangled Up In Blue... Saturday Snapshots will be back next week for our 99th edition!


  1. I find Kirsty MacColl's original has more feeling than Tracey Ullman's sweet, poppy 80s version. Both good though.

  2. Thanks as always for the hard work you put into this. Your clue and answer to No. 8 really made me smile, ahh!

  3. You're right of course - We feel we have to say we're embarrassed by our knowledge of some of the less "cool" acts to have graced our turntables, but we're not really.

    I featured the theme to the telly show Belle and Sebastian over at my place - It was sung by the boy from the show and called L'Oiseau. Beautiful.
