Saturday Snapshots #150 - The Answers

Here we go again. Thanks for playing. I hope you're all keeping well.


10. Minor piercing... though it looks bloody painful to me!

Morris Minor.

The Prince Albert piercing gets another mention!

Feelings bring us pain.

Morris Albert - Feelings

9. Ban worms! Knock it off.

Ban worms was a simple anagram.

Sam Brown - Stop

Very nice segue from #10 to #9 if this was a radio show.

8. Jenny said when she was just five years old, there was nothing happening at all... except an Italian god.

"Jenny said when she was just five years old, there was nothing happening at all..." comes from Rock n Roll by the Velvet Underground.

If Jenny was five years old, she would be a child.

Italian for God? Dio.

Dio - Rock n Roll Children

7. Robert Wagner is not allowed here. Neither is Stefanie Powers. But tiny scared arachnids are fine.

Robert Wagner & Stefanie Powers were Mr. & Mrs. Hart. (When they met, it was Moidah.) Ban them!

Topical references my forte, as always. But Alyson was on the right track. Coming up with a clue for Devendra was beyond me though.

Devendra Banhart - Little Yellow Spider 

6. Airborne proposition from Barry's girl x 200.

Barry's girl was Mandy.

X is 10 in Roman Numerals. 200 would be CC.

10cc - I'm Mandy, Fly Me

5. King's footwear manufactured by German free man... sounds like a psycho!

Carl is a North Germanic male name meaning "free man".

Antony Perkins played Norman Bates in Psycho.

This song was made more famous by the King of Rock n Roll... but the original was by...

Carl Perkins - Blue Suede Shoes

4. Bono return - clown vanish!

Not that Bono! Think instead of the one who knew Cher...

Clown vanish is an anagram.

Shawn Colvin - Sonny Came Home

3. A bear for the Twins... you might find something humerus here.

Teddy bear + Thompson Twins...

Humerus is a bone in your arm.

Teddy Thompson - In My Arms

That's such a joyous video, especially when Rufus arrives. Happier times...

2. Staring contest between Marvin & Child interrupted by fashion designer in romantic trailer.

The eyes of Lee Marvin & the eyes of Lee Child interrupted by Jasper Conran.

Isley Jasper Isley - Caravan of Love

Very different from the Housemartins version, but the original is still pretty cool.

1. Arthritis... don't fall off!

Arthritis causes. among other things, Stiff Little Fingers. (With me, it's my thumbs!)
