Saturday Snapshots #211

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides
By the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men
Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will
Helps his fellow bloggers solve the clues and work out the connection
On Saturday Snapshots.

10. Jerry's neighbour, associated with Walrus home.

9. Speaking clock gets spicy.

8. Roger Whittaker... or mother-painter?

7. Steven or Johnny or Andy or Mike... but only one of them.

6. Could be a stranger, a battlefield or a wonderful colour.

5. Parchment secretaries.

4. Upmarket joiners.

3. The apples are falling, but there's still time to gather in the crops while the sun is shining.

2. Lima found inside people you don't know.

1. Royal bassist down.

And I will strike down upon thee
With great vengeance and furious anger
If you can't get them all by tomorrow morning...
Or maybe I'll just give you the answers.


  1. 6. Love
    5. Manic Street Preachers
    2. Stranglers

  2. Replies
    1. The last two are from the clues alone.Not familiar with either of them

    2. Extra points for that.

  3. 9 Tim Curry
    10 Billy J Kramer

  4. Is the link theme tunes from films?

  5. Is there really a link between the Manics, Isaacs Hayes, and The Carpenters?
    Woodwork perhaps

    1. Once you know it, it's pretty obvious. But it's not thematic S the links often are. It's tied to specific songs...

  6. Replies
    1. No. Stop thinking thematically. Think about what else might connect certain songs they recorded.

  7. Replies
    1. No. But you're on the right track now...

    2. Ah.... could it be Burt Bacharach? Or Bacharach and David?

    3. That works.
      Obvious really (when you know the answer)

  8. Yes, we’ll done C - All the artists gone but plenty of songs to get.
    Close To You - The Carpenters
    I’ll Never Fall In Love Again - Deacon Blue

  9. It was the Stranglers and Isaac Hayes who started me first thinking of Dionne Warwick covers and then to Bacharach & David, for 'Walk On By'.
