nocheese | 6621 comments Very rarely solved in just three songs these days. Find a common link somewhere in the songs and/or artists. Often, but not always, a word that can be added to a word or words in each to make a new word or phrase.
Here is Gordon's current set.:

Sweet Gene Vincent - Ian Dury
Shallow Be Thy Game - Red Hot Chili Peppers
Danny Boy (Londonderry Air) - Elisabeth Schwarzkopf
Bud Powell - Chick Corea

We have eliminated 'sweet', 'shallow' and 'boy'.

Anita Bailey | 2962 comments Thanks for bringing this over NC.

Fancy a nibble, Anita?


message 4: by Gordon (new)

Gordon (skiiltan) | 2940 comments While Anita is busily nibbling nocheese, I think it might be time for another clue...

Sweet Gene Vincent - Ian Dury
Shallow Be Thy Game - Red Hot Chili Peppers
Danny Boy (Londonderry Air) - Elisabeth Schwarzkopf
Bud Powell - Chick Corea
Sit Down - James

Not a word-link.

Spiritinblack | 127 comments Sounds like military ranks to me.

Gordon (skiiltan) | 2940 comments Spiritinblack wrote: "Sounds like military ranks to me."

Not that, SiB.

I'm slightly regretting having started this one as it's not a theme I actually know anything about. I'm relying on a single Wikipedia page.

Sweet Gene Vincent - Ian Dury
Shallow Be Thy Game - Red Hot Chili Peppers
Danny Boy (Londonderry Air) - Elisabeth Schwarzkopf
Bud Powell - Chick Corea
Sit Down - James
Tony (Do You Remember) - Tony Curtis


message 7: by Spiritinblack (new)

Spiritinblack | 127 comments All tribute songs


message 8: by Gordon (new)

Gordon (skiiltan) | 2940 comments Spiritinblack wrote: "All tribute songs"

No. I don't think the second, third or fifth ones fit that description.

There is something that all but the second have in common that might get you started on working this one out.


message 9: by Spiritinblack (new)

Spiritinblack | 127 comments All changed name.

If not me stumped.


message 10: by nocheese (new)

nocheese | 6621 comments Do all but no 2 contain names of characters, eg in a TV series?


message 11: by Gordon (new)

Gordon (skiiltan) | 2940 comments nocheese wrote: "Do all but no 2 contain names of characters, eg in a TV series?"

Yes. Not in TV series, though. No 2 also contains the name of a character but it's less obviously a name.


message 12: by SussexWelsh (new)

SussexWelsh | 5298 comments Shallow Hal, maybe?


message 13: by Gordon (new)

Gordon (skiiltan) | 2940 comments SussexWelsh wrote: "Shallow Hal, maybe?"

No. In No 2 you're looking for the forename of a character whose surname is Palmer.


message 14: by nocheese (last edited Oct 13, 2017 10:34AM) (new)

nocheese | 6621 comments Ah, Chili Palmer is it Elmore Leonard characters?

Although, having said that, I can't come up with any others'

Is it sugar?


message 22: by nocheese (new)

nocheese | 6621 comments It's not 'sugar SiB, and if you tell me which words you were linking to sugar, I'll tell you whether any of them do in fact link to the word I'm looking for. Can't say fairer than that.

Spiritinblack | 127 comments Brown sugar or even sugar free
Sugar rush

message 24: by nocheese (new)

nocheese | 6621 comments Thanks, SiB. Normally we frown on multiple guesses (as in your first one), but I'll let you off, and let you know that you have no links. Which is a good thing.


message 25: by Spiritinblack (new)

Spiritinblack | 127 comments Just getting used to playing this so understand a bit more now.
Of course no links as SW had 1 and used different words d'oh
