HINT FOR THIS SATURDAY NIGHT’S THEME (10.25.14)

22 Oct

HINT:

If you thought about it – even for a minute – before you did it, you’d have known immediately, instinctively it wasn’t going to end well. Far from it. The cards were stacked against you. But did that stop you? No. 

Can you think of any songs like that? I can.

HINT:

When we admire singers and musicians, we go to their concerts, we buy their music. When singers and musicians admire other singers and musicians, what do they do? (And, if you think this has something to do with Tonia Harding, you’re really on the wrong track.)

PLAYLIST FOR “COPYCATS” (10.11.14)

13 Oct

I hope my hint this week was sufficiently confusing…“I’ll play every song at least twice but I won’t play any song more than once.” All I meant was I’ll play two different songs with the same song title. I was surprised at how many there are, and how many I didn’t know before last week. How about you?

8 Oct

HINT:
