Saturday Snapshots #103 - The Answers

It won't mean much to most of you, but Friday's news that Disney & Sony have reached a new deal over the rights to Spider-Man was one of the few pieces of good news I've had lately. Thought I'd celebrate it with the image above.

Now here are yesterday's answers...

10. I've an intuition you'll always be together.

The Feeling - Never Be Lonely

9. Did you enjoy watching Chernobyl burn?

Yes, that is Batley Bob, along with his mates from Chic and Duran Duran...

Crazy 80s video features a woman shaving her armpits. Lovely.

Power Station - Some Like It Hot

8. Runaway loses 50 as you arrive.

Del Shannon sang Runaway.

50 was L in Roman Numerals.

Subtract one from the other...

You may know this song by other people, but Jackie wrote it.

Jackie DeShannon - When You Walk In The Room

7. 12:01, Jameson's cabbage.

J. Jonah Jameson is the arch-nemesis of the bloke in the costume at the top of the page. Considering I came up with this clue a couple of weeks ago, I call that synchronicity.

Kale is a type of cabbage,

J.J. Cale - After Midnight

6. A lot's happened between Friday and today. Like killer fruit!

When this clue was posted, a lot had happened since yesterday,

A killer fruit might be a strawberry with a switchblade.

Strawberry Switchblade - Since Yesterday

Another song that Karine Polwart has done a fine version of on her new album.

5. Smashed pumpkins with mixer.

A pumpkin is a gourd. If it were smashed, it might have drunk too much gin and juice.

The Gourds - Gin & Juice

Not as Young as he used to be... but everything must change.

Paul Young - Everything Must Change

3. Found in clover, forever. In need of an umbrella.

Love can be found in the middle of clover, forever is unlimited.

The one they love (The Walrus of Love) not pictured. But then he, literally, phones his performance in on this one.

Love Unlimited - Walkin' In The Rain With The One I Love

2. This tape will self-destruct in 5 seconds: blame the crazy Jam Kennels.

"This tape will self-destruct in 5 seconds" comes from Mission: Impossible.

"Jam Kennels" is an anagram.

Jens Lekman - To Know Your Mission

1. Greens, before the Beatles, get mean.

Sprouts are greens.

Before the Beatles would be Pre-Fabs.

Mean is just cruel.

"If I'm troubled by every folding of your skirt
Am I guilty of every male-inflicted hurt?
But I don't know how
To describe the modern rose
If I can't refer 
To her shape against her clothes...
With the fever of purple prose."

Written 35 years ago, yet more timely a lyric you won't hear this year.

This quiz does whatever a Snapshot can, once again, next Saturday.
