OK - I think I may have them all now - I'm really not sure about number 18, but I've sort of got a feeling it may be right - sort of... :?

Your #18's wrong
How on earth does your #18 answer even remotely fit in with the clue? :lol:

Ok - here's sort of my reasoning. :lol:

US Bomber = Enola Gay and Enola is at least part of an anagram of Eleanor.

Oh well, back to the drawing board. :lol:

In the words of "Catchphrase" (1980s TV quiz show)

"It's good, but it's not right"

The US bomber is a person.

:lol: That helped me more than you can know. The other thing they used to say on Catchphrase was "Say what you see" - A cross the una-verse oh dear oh dear oh dear. :lol:

But in Catchphrase the contestant was hand-picked for stupidness, so you'd have a picture of a person holding a bird and you could see two other birds sitting in a bush, and the contestant would say, "People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones" and the Irish presenter guy (can't remember his name) would say, "It's good but it's not right". It was never good when it was completely wrong FFS! :lol:

Here are 12 songs with colours in their title;

1=My girlfriend left me on Sunday evening
2=Forger's coin producer
3=Killed by an enormous fruit
4=Unorthodox bride looks beautiful
5=Cat says don't push rule
6=Dyslexic but don't panic
7=Blind guide isn't yellow
8=Wash your black T-shirt too much
9=Is it better for you than white?
10=My English garden is twice as good as my Japanese garden
11=Easily killed on the battlefield
12=Don't shout high No. 12 biologist

I can't do the Beatles quiz, but I'll have a go at the colours. No, I haven't cheated either & looked at Tony's answers. :D
Best wishes,

I'm a bit stuck now. :? Can I ask - are these proper colour names (red, blue, green, brown etc.) or are we talking about such things as: golden, rosy, chocolate etc.?

Does that make sense? :D
