Looking for some Lateral Thinkers...

April 20th, 2007 (03:24 pm)

Bit of a Friday puzzler here. I have six songs, all cunningly concealed by pictures and images, and I'm trying to work out what they are. Luckily, I have a smart flist here. *crickets chirp*

Hello? Bueller?


Song 1:
A picture of a new, shiny whistle. No sign of a pea.
A whale, floating on the ocean, blowing a spout of water upwards.
A sheep's head.
A piece of kitchen equipment, looking like a colander or similar.

Whistle whale ewe wok - Whistle While You Work

Song 2:
A restaurant worker, carrying a bottle of wine and two glasses.
A lamp, with the bulb on, just peeking out from under the shade.
The letter "O".
A bucket, full of water and soap suds.

Waiter shade O pail - A Whiter Shade of Pale

Song 3:
A cloud, with rain falling from it.
A castle tower.
The number 4.
A close-up on a chain, and one particular link.
The phrase "On my".
Someone's head, facing to the left.

Raindrops keep 4 link on my head - Rainsdrops keep falling on my head

Song 4:
A mole, just peeking out of its molehill on a lawn.
The letter "O" again.
Four people, all marked in turn : Pa, Ma, Bro and Sis.
A giant tractor tire.

Mole O kin tire - Mull of Kintyre

Song 5:
The lower half of a face, with a big wide grin and slight stubble.
Same picture, only there might be a touch more stubble (could be slight artistic cock-up).
A man with his hand up in front of his face going "Psst" to the man behind him wearing a strange hat with a star on it.
The letter "O" yet again.
A tap gushing out water into clouds (could be steam) and an arrow pointing down into those clouds.

Song 6:
Three 'House to rent' placards.
A boy holding up a bowl and the words "Please Sir".
A fried egg.
What is either a rooster or a hen, depending on what the artist thinks they look like.

Lets Twist Egg Hen - Lets twist again

HELP!!!!!

I can't get the start but it's:

Something Oliver Egg Hen - Something...All Over Again?

Also, I totally hate this sort of puzzle. Give me my ten minutes back. :P

It's not Deja Vu All Over Again, is it?

I did get the mole one though.

Just the one left outstanding overall.

This looks like it's the pictures you're referring to, if anyone needs them. I think the man with the starred hat is a policeman, but I'm still pretty stumped. I think the last panel is either pour or downpour, but...

Yes! That's the pictures alright!

*bows* Your google-fu is strong indeed.

Grin, grin, grass, O, Foam - Green, green grass of home

*cries*

*a lot*

And I'd thought of "green" for "grin", but the only song I could think of was "green grow the lilacs" - where the word "gringo" comes from. Le sigh.

Hey, at least we know!

Twas the policeman bit you came up with that triggered 'grass' for me, and then it hit.

Woot! I helped! I was trying to work "confess" into a song title for a while there.

That last unsolved panel, I would say is definitely downpour.

The cop has me thinking of informer, rat, squealer...nothing helping yet.
