Saturday Snapshots #113 - The Answers

Whoopi! It's this week's answers...

10. Almost like a lone cuckoo, above its nest, on a rack, surrounded by water, screaming.

OK, McMurphy was the character Jack Nicholson played in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest... so this guy almost sounds like him.

An island is surrounded by water. If it were on a rack, it would be a long island. The screams would be the sound it made as I stretched it to make this clue work.

Honestly, the effort I go into some weeks.

James McMurtry - Long Island Sound

9. Bunch of evil bastards and feckless idiots, carrying a torch.

This, on the other hand, should require no further explanation.

Parliament - Flashlight

8. A small amount of fuel for Henry's car: pucker up, zombie Bruce.

A litre in the Ford?

"Kiss me, Dead Lee!"

Lita Ford - Kiss Me, Deadly

When I watch that, I am forever 16.

7. See wild animals in the waves and obliterate them.

Safari in the surf?

Surfaris - Wipe Out!

6. You should take one on de canal... drums after dark.

What else are you going to take on de canal but de barge!?

DeBarge - Rhythm of the Night

There's something wonderfully innocent about that.

5. A make believe clock for short bosses.

Short bosses would be MGMT.

MGMT - Time To Pretend

4. Ask a Loser if he wants a cuppa... you'll be surprised by how many sugars he wants.

"Brew, Beck?"

"You take five!?"

Dave Brubeck - Take Five


3. "They're all out to get me!"


Garbage - I Think I'm Paranoid

2. Vowel-free gym teacher in the Yellowhammer state.

Their gym teacher was Leonard Skinner. He didn't like long hair or loud music.

No, really. This is the guy who gave them their name...

"Turn it up!"

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama

1. Artist not with Brand T gives up seat.

Rembrandt without Brand T = Rem.

Stand the drummer at the front then it's harder to identify the band. (Except... those eyebrows...)

Simple existentialism in a 3 minute pop song...

If you want a Ghost of a chance of getting the answers before anyone else next week - get in on the act early, sister!
