Subject: Doc's A-Z CryptiQuiz 15 [2 LEFT, CLUES ADDED, NO LIMIT!]

Written By: Doc Brown on 03/19/15 at 12:38 am

AND SO, IT ALL COMES DOWN TO THIS.
Never think for a second that I didn't have fun writing all these quizzes, but I must finally and officially admit that this is my last one. I have simply run out of songs to use!
Still hoping that a friend will take up my mantle and begin writing more, preferably starting with A&B, C&D, E&F and so on, like Henk, Tanya & I used to do it. When I thought I was running out the last time, these lists were pretty much bonus rounds! ;D
Whatever happens from now on, it has been my honor to raise Henk's intellectual invention to the art form we have made it, now if only I could have a chance to play! Starting Limit: Lifted, and if you're smart enough to play, you're smart enough that you don't need to cheat. So, let the final game begin!

A. decades behind us
nally - George Harrison, "All Those Years Ago"

B. 20's Beantown dance
loki - Steely Dan, "Boston Rag"

C. affection's shade
mistress - Billy Ocean, "Color Of Love"

D. quit prodding moi to speed!
nally - Taylor Dayne, "Don't Rush Me"

E. each of the lady's small tasks are sorcery
nally - Police, "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic"

F. excessive liberty leakage
gibbo - Steve Winwood, "Freedom Overspill"

G. age following retirement
gibbo - David Bowie, "Golden Years"

H. in what way am I able to say no?
nally - Heart, "How Can I Refuse?"

I. personally unable to explain
gibbo - Eagles, "I Can't Tell You Why"

J. sexy rainforest dance
mistress - Kool & The Gang, "Jungle Boogie"

L. madame has no objection
Henk - Talking Heads, (The) "Lady Don't Mind"

M. romantic transmission
Philip - "Message Of Love" (1995, what artist?)

N. in Mother Earth's course (1987)

O. shore across the river
mistress - Aerosmith, (The) "Other Side"

P. deadly chemical
nally - Alice Cooper, "Poison"

R. story's going around
gibbo - Adele,"Rumor Has It"

S. certain items should remain without mention
mistress - Hall & Oates, "Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid"

T. Mt. Everest's peak
Philip - "Top Of The World" (1992, what artist?)

W. astronomer?
loki - Genesis, "Watcher Of The Skies"

Y. thou sports the thing nicely
nally - Rod Stewart, "You Wear It Well"

Score: Philip - 1, nally - 6, gibbo - 4, loki - 2, mistress - 4 1/2, Henk - 1.

Your Pal,
Doc

Hey, c'mon guys! nearly 2 weeks and no one even ventures a guess anymore? I realize you don't want the magic to end, but I have to pass the torch on sometime. I added clues for the last 2(and 2 halves), and I trust someone is ready to become the new CryptiQuizMaster. Think hard now!
