Subject: Bobby's quick quiz (2 left with extra clues - NO LIMIT)

Written By: Bobby on 05/13/06 at 6:37 pm

Solve the clues to find the missing 80s song and artist/band.

No Limits

1. Let go of the airplane controller. 'Drop the pilot' - Joan Armatrading (Jaytee)

2. Augustus Gloop could be considered this.
I wonder if he would resist the sunset?
August Gloop . . . He made a movie

3. The bison approach. 'Buffalo Stance' - Neneh Cherry (Foo Bar)

4. The expression Jack the Ripper gave when encountering the nearby prostitute.A view to a kill - Duran Duran (Hawk the Slayer)
He gave a glare only a new romantic could sing about.
Maybe a job for James Bond

5. Oops! Sorry switch. I didn't mean to turn you on - Robert Palmer (Paul)
This electrical appliance was probably addicted to love.
And probably had a bad case of loving you.

6. The dog from Dublin. 'The Irish Rover' - Pogues & Dubliners (Paul)

7. A raised vocabulary. 'Word up' - Cameo (Foo Bar)

8. A narrow-minded way of looking at things. One Vision - Queen (Karen)
Only a member of the monarchy could be so ignorant
It would be this monarchy's one goal, one mission

9. Metal links were affected in this clue. 'Chain reaction' - Diana Ross (Karen)

10. To strip 'The Jungle Book' to it's bear essentials.
It's enough to make you lose your mind
If you did lose your mind it would be true

11. The period of time I was breathing. The Living years - Mike and the Mechanics (Paul)
If you are not breathing, it may require a car specialist to help you out.
You could get his advice by word of mouth.

12. A two dimensional sphere found on the beach. 'Circle in the sand' - Belinda Carlisle (Maddog)

13.  Aphrodite won't move until she wants to. 'You can't hurry love' - Phil Collins (Foo Bar)

14. What a great 24 hours that was. 'Fantastic Day' - Haircut100 (Paul)

15. I suppose any old rag doll could be referred to as this. 'Material girl' - Madonna (Paul)


Okey doke, folks - have fun.  :)

Well Bobby I usually pride myself on being quite good at this sort of quiz but the only one I could get is....

Hi Rob...good stuff, my man!

#6. 'The Irish Rover' - The Pogues & The Dubliners

#14. 'Lovely Day' - Bill Withers (actually a 70s song, but was treated to an 80s re-vamp...)

It isn't but I can certainly see why you picked that. The clue may be a little sneaky depending on how you interprete it.  ;)

Well done, Paul. If anyone was going to get No. 6 I could almost bank on it being you.  8)

Two for two (well done for giving No 14 another go  ;)) and you are right about the revamp, 'Lovely Day' got remixed in 1988.

3. The bison approach.
9. Metal links were affected in this clue.
13.  Athrodite won't move until she wants to.


3 - Buffalo Stance (Neneh Cherry)
9 - Chain of Fools (Little Caesar), and if that ain't it, I've got two other candidates in two different musical genres.
13 - You Can't Hurry Love (Phil Collins), assuming that's a typo for Aphrodite.

2/3 Foo Bar - excellent stuff. You got 3 and 13 right and you are heading in the right direction with 9.

As for the Aphrodite, yes it was a typo. I wrote the quiz late at night.  :-[ ;)

Poor maddog . . .

I'm sorry it's still not the right one. Try not to think of 'raised' as loud . . . That is the only clue you will get for that - and I only gave you it because of the effort you are putting into it.  :)

Solve the clues to find the missing 80s song and artist/band.

Limit 3

4. The expression Jack the Ripper gave when encountering the nearby prostitute.

7. A raised vocabulary.

10. To strip 'The Jungle Book' to it's bear essentials.


4. Hungry Like the Wolf - Duran Duran (too many options here :)

7. Word up - Cameo

10.  Bear Necessities Megamix - UK Mixmasters, because the Jungle Book movie came out in the late 60s, didn't it?

You have one right, Foo Bar, and that is No 7. Well done. You've reached your limit for the time being.  :)

Since you're looking for 80s songs, I'm thinking #11 is "Alive and Kicking" by Simple Minds.

It got forgotten about so I thought I would add easier clues to get the quiz finished - I'm quite surprised this didn't get finished sooner.

Absolutely right on both counts, Paul - excellent stuff.
