B17 is Harborne in Birmingham, a little bit of Edgbaston......
But knowing @Max414 it will be an aeroplane thingy. Probably a Boeing because it begins with B.

Post by: Kat73 on January 12, 2017, 10:09:32 pm
That's what I thought but the only band I could think of that had that type of alphanumerical name is the B52s and it ain't them!  Googling successor of the B17 hasn't helped.  The B17 was the Flying Fortress apparently, does that help you any @tea ?
Title: Re: Cryptic songs thread
Post by: Max414 on January 12, 2017, 10:14:38 pm

Enola Gay was the name given to the B29 Superfortress bomber that dropped the first atom bomb in 1945 Tea.
Its name is 'infamous' and 'notorious' as you suggested  ;D 'Bang on' was a feeble attempt to describe the bomb it carried,and the second bit,the band,Kat got easily  ;)

The year was 1996.

"Know we're all the same
We chop and change at will
Forgiveness can't exist but it's balanced by our guilt
Everything I've ever done was to please everyone
Never knew, say that's true, don't believe....."

I misheard the lyrics and spent a year singing "gimps can exist..." until my boyfriend corrected me.

I dislike him intensely. We used to have a class at school called Eurythmy, which was basically where the teacher sat in a corner and put records on and we had to run around pretending to be trees and it was always Cliff blooming Richard and that Tupp'ney Bus Ride song. I hated it all! Well except for that "go Tonto, jump on it" song, but we never got to dance properly it was all "come on children, move like a panther"....

If it's one word for a slap round the chops then the first thing that comes to mind is 'uppercut', but that was a song by Tu Pac I think. I know there is a band called Stuppercut on one of my old Kerrang albums but I can't find it.

Dear Cryptic Song Thread Crew,

Re: Downer

There has been a bit of a mix up! Turns out that Edward Smith guy who married his VW Beetle caught her in a garage with a Honda CBR600F touching her paintwork and he left her, started divorce proceedings and now he's hooked up with the same bike!

Weird! I'm sure there's a song in there somewhere...

Title: Re: Cryptic songs thread
Post by: tea on July 19, 2017, 11:28:07 pm
Catherine and Catherine were wives 1 and 5 (6 was a Kathrine with a K wasn't she?) they were divorced and beheaded.

I would maybe like the cheesy christmas disc to be a christmas record which would be a Carol = but the only Carol song I can think of is Neil Sedaka!! Bob Dylan wrote lots of songs about Henries (Henry's Loves) but he is not a cheesy disc in terms of being a Carol or a Cracker. Henry VIII was a song but that was Herman's Hermits....
Title: Re: Cryptic songs thread
Post by: tea on July 20, 2017, 12:32:57 am
LOL!

Could it be Dead or Alive - You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)

On the basis that you play were they dead or alive with the poem (divorced - alive, beheaded - dead, died - dead) and that a a record is a disc and it's a cheesy song.

I'm thinking too much into it.

The band isn't Queen (there's more than one so it would be plural), and they're not Queens of the Stone Age because they are Tudors (too late for Stone age)....

I did find a band called MisterWives with a song called Drummer Boy but that is too obscure.
Title: Re: Cryptic songs thread
Post by: Max414 on July 20, 2017, 11:55:02 am
Catherine and Catherine are of course part of the 6 wives,so link them to fatso for the group. :hug:-the singers are a folk act,to be sure.

Ok-final clues,which are pretty much naming the band and song.

End of year is....what month? and what is made of cheese and disc-shaped? as for the singers, 2 of Henry's wives were Catherine ( yes I know, a third was too) so that might suggest these women are 'the girls of Henry' ( re-arrange slightly)

The case before the judiciary today is a sad case of assault and battery perpetrated by the first person. Witnesses have confirmed that the perpetrator was responsible.

Ratio decidendi:
To set a precedent would allow the floodgates to open.

It was a fine clue, two of us knew the answer. I think to be honest that it often helps if you've heard of the artist or song as your subconscious whispers it to you.

As for @aneggisanegg's clue; I know the M3 between London and Southampton and I love Fleetwood Mac and it's a good song.

Ingredients

225g butter, chopped into small pieces, plus a little for greasing
200g white chocolate, chopped into small pieces
175g plain flour
½ tsp baking powder
200g soft light brown sugar
100g golden caster sugar
3 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
Method

Grease a 21 x 21cm brownie tin with a little butter, then line the base and sides with baking parchment. Place the butter and 100g white chocolate in a bowl, suspended over a pan of gently simmering water. Stir every few mins, until the butter and chocolate have melted. Remove the bowl from the pan and leave to cool for 15 mins. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Combine the flour and baking powder in a bowl, with 1/4 tsp salt.
Place the sugar and eggs in a large bowl. Using an electric hand whisk, beat the mixture until it looks thick and foamy – this will take a few mins. The egg mixture is ready when it leaves a trail from the beaters, which sits on the surface for 2 secs.
Add the vanilla to the melted chocolate and give it a good stir – don’t worry if it has separated. Pour into the whisked eggs and sugar. Use a spatula to gently fold everything together, until most of the buttery streaks have been folded in. Sieve the flour mixture into the bowl and fold together again, add the remaining chocolate chunks and stir until well combined.
Pour the mixture into your tin, smoothing it into the corners. Bake for 30-35 mins, a skewer inserted to the centre should come out with sticky crumbs, but no raw cake mixture. Cool completely in the tin – they will sink in the middle as they cool, just like brownies. Cut into 16 squares. They will keep for 5 days in a sealed container.

Just one for the artist.

Bonny Heady or Donald Nielsen perhaps for the song.
