doing 90s rock quiz intro (Sorry Kern, I reckon I need to do a classical musical intros round after I've done 2020s)

do you prefer a super short intro of a popular song, or a longer intro of an obscure song?

Why not do half and half? Makes it slightly more challenging, but maybe doesn’t disadvantage anyone too much.


Or a whole round of each...

Sitting in my garden with a book and a beer when I heard the doorbell. Unexpected Amazon delivery!

Thank you so much for this and the kind words! Really appreciate it.

The truffles will be guzzled, the puzzles cracked, the garden might actually be sorted, and the cute shot glasses mean my whiskey will be shared!

Genuinely touched by this. Again, thank you!

I don't want you to think that I am struggling or anything, but do you think it's acceptable to use a song released in December 2009, that was still in the charts in 2010?

But I am finding it quite hard to find ten songs that are well known, have a decent length intro, are by well known bands/artist (that I have not already used), that don't stretch the definition of Rock too far (I at least want the Wikipedia page of the artist to mention Rock in someway!)

Author:  Warhead [ Sun Apr 11, 2021 0:32 ]

I'm on standby again this week and seem to be the only engineer covering Lancs, Cheshire and Merseyside today, so it's possible I won't be participating tonight. But if I finish at my normal time and nobody breaks anything that can't wait until tomorrow to be fixed, I'll try to get another round of Logos ready for this evening.

After talking about Abbey Road tonight I found the rest of the screenshots I took of the look-alike Beatles guys doing their bit of fimling on a Sunday morning. This was the one that was most lke the record cover.

I like to look at this webcam from time to time, and what I realised is that when tourists try to take their version of the Abbey Road record cover, they always seem to stop mid-stride on the crossing for their friend(s) to take a photo. This often holds up the traffic, but from what I've seen, drivers seem to be fairly tolerant of this as long as whoever's on the crossing walks or runs off as soon as the photo has been taken. I'm sure they'd get better photos if they just kept walking while the photos are taken.

Here are a couple of others from the same shoot.

When you see them close-up, they don't facially look like the Fab Four, but their shape, size, hair and clothing look similar from a distance.

It's great. The Lennon-a-like is a bit hulking, but the suit covers a lot of it, I reckon he gets away with it.
