Nothing comes to mind immediately but I'm thinking

Peppermints Black Box Time

After Eight Mints or some link with chocolate?

Don't see how the second track fits in though so I won't hold my breath Smile

I suppose you could be sick if you ate too many Laughing

No, Ruddles, it's nothing to do with chocolate or After Eights. As a chocoholic I like your thinking though. Smile

I'll give you a little hint - remember that alternate spellings of words may be used.

Guess what I had for dinner yesterday Angel - fish with dill sauce!

And then I woke up about 2 am this morning and thought MINT DYL TIME
thats it - the link is herbs

Don't you think that might be telepathy Very Happy

If I'm right I 'll try for the fourth link any of these

Love Grows (Where my Rosemary Goes) - Edison Lighthouse
Lavender Blue - Marillion
Come Back - Jessica Garlick

If not it's back to the drawing board Sad

Well done Ruddles, that's the correct link, so a pint of Daleside Legover for that. Smile Fish with dill sauce sounds good.

However, you've not got the correct fourth link yet, I'm afraid.

Sorry, Ruddles, none of them are right. It's a herb I'm looking for, so it's green and leafy.

Excellent stuff but I'll have my virtual champagne later if you don't mind because we're having a barbeque here and I'm presently drinking some very mediocre wine Sad

Anyway I promised you a difficult next link and here it is

Shoulda Woulda Coulda - Beverley Knight
The Air That I Breathe - The Hollies
Leave A Light On - Belinda Carlisle

Don't worry - if necessary I'll post some more tracks in the link and give you some more clues
I think if anyone gets this link from the three tracks above I might even drive over and personally deliver a case of champagne Laughing

I can't work your think links out. The first and last I thought could be towns or places with a Minster possibly, but the middle one doesn't fit. I think maybe I should just give up reading this thread because I'll never get it, I am not clever enough! Sad

Don't be silly Angela - of course you're clever enough

It's just a question of getting used to the devious way in which my mind works Shocked

This is one of the most difficult links I have done and when I did it in the pub someone eventually got it after five hours and six clues
Have a go Angela - what do you have to lose?

Sleep mainly, because I lay awake trying to think of the answer! Confused

I did that last night Angela

And then at 2am I suddenly got the answer to Angel's last link Very Happy

The problem is because I have to do this live at least once a week I'm permanently having to think of new links to use which is why I am very grateful for other people here giving me new ideas with some excellent links and I will certainly be using many of them in the near future

And because the links can rely on different spelling of words my spelling is going right downhill Sad

You've come up with a very credible link but unfortunately it's not correct but start thinking again about how the second track fits in - and don't forget I will give more clues if needed so even if you don't get it now you might do with the extra clues so keep looking

Very well done Angel - that was really impressive Very Happy

I think I should get you signed up for MENSA Laughing

When I originally did this link live I didn't use the link to Beverley but here I thought it might be too obvious if I used the track 'Salisbury Hill' by Peter Gabriel but clearly I couldn't fool you

When I listened to Popmaster on Ken Bruce this morning and one of the specialist categories was 'Horses for Courses' I thought that would give it away - I don't know whether anyone heard it

Anyway now it's over to you for the fourth track - you've certainly got plenty of choice

Actually I probably wouldn't have got it if you'd said Salisbury Hill rather than Beverley. Laughing

No sorry it's not any of those tracks or the courses to which they link

I'll leave it open for a few more guesses before I give any further clue Smile

Actually it was Solsbury Hill, outside Bath near where Peter Gabriel lives, not Salisbury!

Was it really Schiz - I never knew that but there again I'm not a great fan of Mr Gabriel or Genesis Sad

Still it wouldn't have made any difference because it's the sound of the word which forms the link and not necessarily the correct spelling but thanks for pointing it out anyway

Great guesses but not correct

It might help you if I tell you that you have not found the right course yet

If necessary I'll give you some other wrong answers so you can narrow it down a bit Smile

No sorry Angel and it's not Warwick Avenue by Duffy either

You still need to find the right racecourse

To help you I'll post a list of wrong answers from the live link

WinCHESTER Cathedral - New Vaudeville Band
BRIGHTON Rock - Queen
New Divide - LINKIN Park
I'm doing Fine Now - New YORK City

None of those tracks were correct and none related to the right racecourse

Have another go and if you're still struggling I'll give you a musical clue about the fourth track

I told you this wasn't easy didn't I Very Happy

That's a great answer Angel - nobody else came up with that answer but unfortunately it's not correct

I'll give you a musical clue which might help

I'm looking for a track which was a hit in the mid to late 1980's for a female artist but that was a cover version and for this link I'm needing the original version around twenty five years earlier Smile

You still really need to find the right racecourse

I'll have to declare myself beaten by this one Ruddles, unless you can give some more clues without giving it away completely. Sad

My brain isn't functioning on all cylinders at the moment as I'm so drugged up with antihistamine with the pollen count being so high, so perhaps I'm just missing something obvious. Smile

Not a problem I'll give you another clue so at least you can probably identify the racecourse

When you mentioned Dionne Warwick you weren't a million miles away

Actually only about 35!

Get the racecourse and you should then get the track fairly easily
Funnily enough Simon Bates played the 1988 cover version on the Golden Hour today but I expect you might struggle to get Smooth Radio in the Yorkshire Dales

I can just see you there scanning a road map of the Midlands right now Laughing

Well done Angel - I told you you'd get it straight away once you knew the racecourse

For three and a half years I used to live right next door to Leicester Racecourse and some thirty five years later I still maintain a record of never having lost a bet on any race at Leicester Very Happy

Anyway over to you - I suspect you might want to get your own back Laughing

Yes Angel but I think I might struggle to get the fourth track

I'll have a think about it overnight

The only thing which springs to mind immediately is Tuxedo Junction by Glenn Miller
