Snapshots #222: A Top Ten London Underground Songs

I'm sure you left no Stone unturned in solving this week's quiz, so I'm going to award you all an Easy A. Next stop: the answers...

10. Achieved a first class grade in culinary school.

Kitchens of Distinction - On Tooting Broadway Station

9. Often seen on the corner of Sinatra Street.

Frank, turning the corner...

Frank Turner - The Angel Islington

8. Titanic confrontation.

Clash of the Titans!

Take your pick between...

White Man - (White Man) in Hammersmith Palais


The Clash - Guns Of Brixton

7. Political dove opponent resembles a slice of pig.

Hawks oppose doves. Ham-ish.

Hamish Hawk - Bakerloo, Unbecoming

I listened to that track on repeat for the entire (1 hour plus) journey home earlier this week. 

And it sounds strange
Coming from
The oldest flame at evensong
I'm no righteous type
Don't get me wrong
But how do you get off
If you never got on?

6. Sounds like something you might find in the trial of the Moors Murderers.

That would be an Ian (Brady) Jury.

Ian Dury - Plaistow Patricia

5. It's fear that makes them jingle.

The Trembling Bells - Marble Arch

4. Remember the REM LP Up? These guys have mixed feelings about it.

LP Up? Anagram!

Pulp - Mile End

3. Canadian Kathleen knew more than one, Johnny and Bobby.

Kathleen Edwards + Johnny & Bobby Ball.

The photo above is Edward Ball when he was a member of the Television Personalities. This is what he sounded like as a solo artist in the mid-90s...

Apparently Mill Hill is London Underground's least used station. And it's not even under ground! No wonder it hates itself.

Edward Ball - The Mill Hill Self Hate Club

2. Grey fart fryer.

Anagram! (No disrespect meant to the late Mr. Rafferty. Or Bob Holness.)

Gerry Rafferty - Baker Street

1.  First sign of male pattern baldness.

Apparently one of the first signs of male pattern baldness is kinks in the hair.

There was almost a very big clue in the photo, which I had to edit out before posting this yesterday. (Check the drumkit.)

Abba featured last week, so it was Ray had to take the top spot. (Also, this song is actually about the station, rather than the place where Napoleon fell.)

The Kinks - Waterloo Sunset

I won't be Cruella... Snapshots will be back next Saturday.
