Snapshots #242: A Top Ten Midnight Songs

Ain't It Funny how long you can spend staring at these images before working out who they are? Sometimes it takes All I Have to Control Myself and... yeah, I'm just looking up J-Lo song titles now, I don't actually know any of them. Apart from Jenny From The Block, and I can't work out how to pun that in here.

(If only I could have found a photo of Gary Cole, the Midnight Caller, holding a camera...)

Let's just get on with the answers, shall we?

10. Harrods, clogged.


Clodagh Rodgers - Goodnight Midnight

9. Non-blasphemous expression of frustration or disbelief.

Judas Priest!

(Well, maybe that it a little bit blasphemous, if you think about it.)

Judas Priest - Living After Midnight

8. A radium mural.


Maria Muldaur - Midnight At The Oasis

7. 5th & 8th Doctors merge.

The 5th Doctor Who was Peter Davidson. The 8th was (very briefly) Paul McGann.

Paul Davidson - Midnight Rider

6. Criminal brother.

He's a felonious monk.

Thelonious Monk - 'Round Midnight

5. Potent brew, made of Juniper Juice Concentrate, initially.

The initials are JJC. So the brew would be JJC Ale.

JJ Cale - After Midnight

4. Good spread in St. James's Park.

Jam is a very good spread.

The Jam - Down In The Tube Station At Midnight

3. Nurse Emmanuel becomes a Sir, with fruity insides.

In Open All Hours, contemporary reference fans, the object of Ronnie Barker's affections was N-N-Nurse G-G-Gladys Emmanuel. If she was a Sir, that would make her a Knight. Inside a fruit are pips.

Gladys Knight & The Pips - Midnight Train To Georgia 

2. Huge fart.

The Airborne Toxic Event - Sometime Around Midnight

1. Striking Beach Boy.

Brian Wilson on the picket line.

Wilson Pickett - In The Midnight Hour

Get Right back here and Play again next Saturday. (That's another two J-Lo hits I've never heard.)
