The ALL NEW Saturday Snapshots (#170)


As if 2020 wasn't bad enough... I was sad to read that my favourite actor, Jeff "The Dude" Bridges, is currently fighting cancer. Let's hope this New Year brings him - and everyone else - some better times.

So then... the ALL NEW Saturday Snapshots.

Don't worry, it hasn't changed too much. 

However, I am only now giving you clues (via photo and word play) to the artists.

How on earth do you work out the songs then?

Well, in classic My Top Ten style, all the songs are linked by a common theme. So if you can work out the link... you can work out the rest of the songs.

For example, if one artist was Queen, and another was the Dandy Warhols, you might conclude that the link was Bohemian Songs... and then try to work out the remaining songs from that. (Don't worry, I tried to think of another eight Bohemian songs and rapidly ran out of gas... so hopefully the links will be a little easier than that.)

This will mean that the same artists pop up from time to time, but I'll try to vary the clues when that happens.

OK. Hopefully that all makes sense.

Name the ten artists below... work out the link... and guess the appropriate songs.

Let's give it a go... 

10. Use what!?!

9. Wireless boss.

8. Biblical king, girl in the ring.

7. Mad king chooses Gerry's street.

6. Forces awhirl.

5. University head released from prison.

4. I can see your underwear!

3. Pork scratchings?

2. Not a Lott.

1. Known for causing an uproar.

Answers - and link - tomorrow morning.

Happy New Year, everyone.


  1. 8. James Brown - It's a man's world

  2. 7. George Baker Selektion - Little green bag?

  3. 2. Pixies - Here Comes Your Man

  4. I'm a bit confused - Sorry.

    I think I can see the link but do we leave that until the end after everyone else has had a chance to work it out?

    4 is X-Ray Spex

    1. No, you can guess the link whenever.

    2. I think the link is Bag - The X-Ray Spex song could be Plastic Bag and James Brown's song could be Papa's Gotta Brand New Bag?

  5. No. 1 Lloyd Cole and the Commotions - My Bag

  6. Now we're getting the hang of it!

  7. 3 Pigbag Papas Got A Brand New Pigbag

  8. Ooh, clever stuff, Rol - yes definitely a bag theme going on and I can add that 6) is Chris Farlowe (song 'Handbags and Gladrags'?)
