Saturday Snapshots #3


Smile, please...

As usual, there now follows ten clues to ten songs and the artists that sung them.

Play nicely now.


10. A Munster, wearing a white hat, on the canal...


9. There's no doubt husband #7 left Steve a $6 million answerphone message.


8. The queen gives a haircut so good, it'll make you weak.


7. A big, depressed train from the U.S.


6. A moron in comfy shoes wishes his girlfriend was psychic.


5. All sad tales start with a big baby crying.


4. Elvis in his underwear does what Gordon Sumner only pretended he could.


3. How far would Tom & Bob run to see this band, mate?


2. It's agony for a female Flintstone, listening to Andrew's Wax.


1. Celebrating the fastest second place medal: he grows up to devour a plateful of Chrissie's finest.

 

Answers when you least expect them.

  3. These are always too hard for me until I get some clues - All I am seeing at the moment is:
    7. Mungo Jerry (joke - but the hair is the same)
    5. Roxette with much longer hair than usual
    2. Betty Davis (not the actress, obviously)
    1. A young Englebert Humperdink!!

    Back the day I had a friend who always used to sigh with dismay when we pulled out the Trivial Pursuit as she was, granted, rubbish at it - Think I now know how she must have felt! Good on you for putting it all together though and once the experts arrive there will be a clean sweep I'm sure.

    1. Alyson, I think 5 is the mighty wah, but I don't get the clue. No. 3 is the Breeders, but i don't know who Bob & Tom are. Think I might need that to get the song.

  4. #8 Regina Spektor - Samson

  5. Brian - the song is Canonball
    You would never have got That from the clue
    Refers to a British "comedy" due ( Tommy) Cannon and (Bobby) Ball

    1. I know. I should have gone with Burt Reynolds instead.

      Delete
    2. I think that would have done it. Burt would have been quite a clue. Nicely done on Story of the Blues, CC.

  6. 6 Gordon Lightfoot - If You Could Read My Mind (from Brian's wife)

  7. No 1 is Freddie Mercury - working on the song

  8. Freddie with The Great Pretender?! Close but don't think it's correct.

  9. 9 Blake Shelton - Austin (from Brian's wife, again)

    ReplyDelete
  10. 7 Grand Funk Railroad - We're an American Band (yes, Brian's wife yet again)

  11. A bit late to this one, and I've only got the same as those above, grat clues but I can't figure out the missing ones at all!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Right now, we're only missing #2. Mrs. Brian has solved most of the others!

    1. You'll all be kicking yourselves when I reveal the answer...

      (That wasn't a clue.)

      Delete
  14. Could No. 2 be a Wilma, not a Betty? (Wasn't Betty a Rubble?)

    1. I know but just couldn't think of any Wilmas at all! From what Rol says it will probably be neither and will be annoyingly obvious.

      Delete
    2. Not so obvious as Wilma or Betty. Bit more lateral thinking required.

  15. Oh, a lightbulb moment! I think it's Freda (female version of Fred Flinstone) Payne (agony) with Band of Gold (as in Andrew Gold's band Wax)

    1. Well done that woman!

      As for Freda she looks double-jointed in that pic - have looked at it a lot this weekend and still can't quite work out what she's doing.
