Snapshots #268: A Top Ten Weird Places To Make Love Songs

Well, let's face it, if you're going to make love on a mountain top... who better than Sir Edmund Hillary to show you the way?

10. Major component on a SCUD missile.

Cud – Love In A Hollow Tree

Bit cramped. Watch out for splinters.

9. Here come the Dornoch lads with their arrows.

Dornoch is in Sutherland. Arrows come in a quiver.

Not much atmosphere.

8. Changing colour makes me feel as though I’ve been born again (born again).

Alessi sang Oh, Lori, You make me feel as though I've been born again.

Chameleons change colour.

Lori & The Chameleons – Love On The Ganges

Early Bill Drummond band.

Insert "don't hurt your Ganges" joke here.

7. Catching fish in these – it’s a crazy feeling!

You catch fish in nets. Rave on, it's a crazy feeling.

The Raveonettes - Love In A Trashcan

Or you could have had...

The Raveonettes - Love On Barbed Wire

Neither are particular advisable, if you ask me.

6. Rubber from below the river…

When I was at school, a rubber johnny was the funniest thing in the world.

Southside Johnny & The Asbury Dukes – Love On The Wrong Side Of Town

But what's the right side?

5. Fleeting. 

The Moments - Love On A Two Way Street

Insert "oh, you take it both ways" joke here. I missed me calling.

4. Mi dandelion is all mucked up.

Mi dandelion is an anagram.

I'm a huge fan of that song, but I have to admit that whenever I hear it, I imagine Neil getting jiggy on a rocky coastline, with the waves pounding over him. It looks bloody freezing.

3. Wait here three days.

'Til Tuesday - Love In A Vacuum

Aimee Mann before she was Aimee Mann.

See #9.

2. J.K. swaps gender to become a Sir.

JK Rowling changed her name, and her gender (sort of), to Robert Galbraith. A Sir is a Knight.

1. A moth, sire?


Aerosmith - Love In An Elevator

"Oh, good morning, Mr. Tyler. Going... down?"

You're probably all exhausted after that. Take a week off to recover and join me back here next Saturday for more Snapshots...

  1. Sutherland Brothers & Quiver! I imagine they will feature again when you do the Top Ten of songs about Mary's body parts that you've been promising for ages
