Is it "Killer" by Adamski?
Thinking up amusing answers is harder than getting it right, isn't it.

kitten kettle petal mitten package?

the pellet with the poison's in the vessel with the pestle?

When tweetle beetles fight,
it's called a tweetle beetle battle.
And when they battle in a puddle,
it's a tweetle beetle puddle battle.
AND when tweetle beetles battle with paddles in a puddle,
they call it a tweetle beetle puddle paddle battle.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with string
These are a few of my favourite things

Cream coloured ponies and crisp apple strudels
Doorbells and sleighbells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favourite things

When the bee stings
When the dog bites
When I'm feeling bad
I simply remember my favourite things
And then I don't feel so sad
Ha!! What do I win?! What do I win?!

posted by Silky Slim at 5:01 AM on August 26, 2005


maybe a slightly less flowery choice than seanyboy's.

I'll give you an easier one - what video is mtv playing?

I like the Elvis Costello line that goes something like:

"I'm in hell/they play My Favorite Things all the time/but it's always the Julie Andrews version/and never the John Coltrane one."

This is a fantastically fun DoIt post. What a great game. The only one I could get is yours, seanyboy. I'm going to mull over these while I'm supposed to be working.

omiewise, yours isnt Red Mafiya, is it?

none. MTV doesn't play videos anymore. ; >

great post, seany

Nope.

Great post seanyboy!
posted by OmieWise at 6:24 AM on August 26, 2005


woo hoo I got one, I think... Omiewise: James Joyce, Ulysses :)

(you could have used only the first picture really!)

cactus mexican wish blood road

eh, no it's cuban, not mexican, but that doesn't help either, does it? I've no idea.
posted by funambulist at 6:29 AM on August 26, 2005


Ooh, I had "Ulysses". Silky Slim's is hard. It isn't that one that goes something like "down in the West Texas town of El Paso, I fell in love with a Mexican girl... blah, blah, night time would find me in Rosa's cantina....????

funambulist, I'm not even trying yours because I never see videos.

Really nice idea, seanyboy! Okay, guess this easy one: 1, 2, or guess this band: 1, 2, 3, 4 .

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

And the Ring of Fire.
posted by seanyboy at 6:35 AM on August 26, 2005


taz: tsk! but it is easy, I promise, a very famous band. I just put the video bit in as an extra hint...

Once you get the first picture it is becomes rather obvious. The whole sequence is a bit in the chorus. There, I'm not giving any more clues! :)

Thumbs up! This post rox!
posted by Quartermass at 6:43 AM on August 26, 2005


another easy one, at least if you're in the UK - two words: first word, second word.

(alternative first word for easier version... but that other picture is so much funnier)
posted by funambulist at 6:50 AM on August 26, 2005


This is fun seanyboy. I hope someone gets Silky Slim's right soon or I won't be able to sleep!

Sitting here wishing on a cement floor
Just wishing that I had just something you wore

Bloody your hands on a cactus tree
Wipe it on your dress and send it to me
Silky Slims's is the Pixies' "Cactus"!

This is great! Now, if I only had a clue...

I hope her husband, slacks-a-go-go, doesn't show up. This is hard enough already.

Okay, I laughed out loud. That's my new favorite song; I'll be singing it all day.
posted by taz at 8:14 AM on August 26, 2005


Agh, I haven't got a clue about any of the others.
So I'll offer you one last song I just heard on the radio, the easiest I can think of, especially if you cheat with a little google help:

what song is the radio playing?
posted by funambulist at 8:16 AM on August 26, 2005


This is fun.
posted by WolfDaddy at 8:18 AM on August 26, 2005


not so fast, funambulist... what was your first one?!
posted by Silky Slim at 8:21 AM on August 26, 2005


"knee to the groin, elbow to the face, bruise the size of a dinner plate"? is that a song?
posted by Silky Slim at 8:23 AM on August 26, 2005


ah yes I got it - themadjuggler's is Radiohead, Fitter Happier

Silky Slim, yes, it is, well done! ok you didn't say which song but you got the lyrics right
posted by funambulist at 8:25 AM on August 26, 2005

Okay, here is the beginning of a book. Not too easy, but probably not too hard for mefioso.

(by the way, we need to get this guy in here, just for some variety.)

Eleanor Rigby!

(My glee at guessing is diluted by the fact that I didn't know the song and cheated. Google enabled me.)

This song has pants in it.
