Beatles Songs Quiz

Postby poohbcarrot » Sat Jul 11, 2009 10:16 am

These are all cryptic clues for Beatles songs.

I posted this on Jan's new site, but it's proving a touch too difficult. I'm sure it will pose absolutely no problems for the likes of you all and give you something to pass the time on a rainy/sunny July Saturday.

1=The brothel is closed
2=Old toll road
3=In ceramic hell eviction
4=Short meeting
5=Masochistic tennis player
6=Repap Shakespeare
7=Aristocratic holiday singer
8=Bush
....UKF1champ
9=Arrive unexpectedly at Hogwarts
10=Perfect sex
11=24 hour acid drop
12=Irish cat's Eden after short month
13=Tabloid deliverer's shout
14=Pidgin English nudist
15=I'm the song - it's crazy
16=Not Swedish putter
17=Not a nudist beach
18=X the US bomber poem

Now that'll be interesting - will they be the same as mine? :lol:

I think what's partly wrong with our dire showing in the new place is that I'm pretty sure (with one exception who's on her holidays atm) that I'm the oldest by far over there and the rest of them barely know who the Beatles are... :roll:

My co-runner is about two years younger than me but American and has a very unfortunate taste for younger singing ensembles - if you'd done Take That for instance she'd have done the lot by now :evil:

I'm sure this lot'll gobble it up! :twisted:

:lol: That may be one of the problems Pooh - it's us older folks who remember the Beatles' songs. You are showing your age old chap (so am I :lol: ).

Big Yan

I'm not a big Beatles fan (though I do like Elanor Rigby), but when I did some "youngsters music" questions they couldn't do it.

Tony,

#5 is wrong!

:lol: Thought it might be.

I'm also not a Beatles fan. I could never see what all the fuss was about.

I am finding this very difficult, :shock: I think I was actually too old when the Beatles hit the pop scene, :? but I'll keep trying, so far I have 5, whether correct or not, I have no idea. :lol:
Best wishes,
Tiff
