Well I was thinking Chess because you would also see a Rook on a chessboard but I can't see how the other clues fit Confused

Ah but wait a minute Night - it's got to be chess Very Happy

Well done, Ruddles, it was chess pieces that I was looking for.

Any ideas for a fourth track? I won't give any clues yet.

Smile

I'm annoyed with myself Angel - I should have got that long before now - especially as I used to play County Chess for Leicestershire Laughing

Anyway here goes for the fourth track

Fooled Around and Fell in Love - Elvin BISHOP
Love and Pride - KING
KING in a Catholic Style - China Crisis
KING of Wishful Thinking - Prefab Sprout
CASTLES in the Air - Don Maclean
Speed KING - Deep Purple
KINGs of the Wild Frontier - Adam and the Ants
When You Are a KING - White Plains
Your Love is KING - Sade

I'm sure I recall a track called PAWN Star but I can't recall who did it Smile

No, sorry, Ruddles, it's none of those. The track I'm looking for was originally released in 1961 and re-released in 1987.

I also had a vague idea that there had been a track called PAWN Star but couldn't remember anything about it.

Stand By Me - Ben E King? Smile

I think De La Soul might have been the artists who did 'Pawn Star' but I could be wrong

Great stuff - I still don't know why I didn't get that one sooner - my brain must be ageing rapidly Smile

Anyway I've set some tough links recently so I think this one might prove a little easier - famous last words Laughing

Father Figure - George Michael
Fade to Grey - Visage
Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard - Paul Simon

Best of luck Smile

Ok no guesses I see so perhaps this one is not so easy as I thought

As someone once said 'They're only easy if you know the answers' Smile

Anyway a couple of further clue tracks which might help you

Telegram Sam - T Rex
Sowing the Seeds of Love - Tears for Fears

Ruddles, I'm totally devoid of inspiration for this one Sad

Any chance of a clue as to what direction to be looking?

Well Angel it might help if you think about the Sound Of Music - and yes if you're wondering I am talking about the famous 60s film but I am also using the phrase in a more general sense as well Smile

Yes you got it - musical scales Very Happy

And so far as the fourth track is concerned I'll start you off by mentioning that it isn't the obvious one 'Mouldy Old Dough' Smile

I'm sorry Ruddles, that was incredibly difficult, though the final clue made it a bit easier.

I really didn't think that was by any means one of the most difficult I've done Schiz buy you should be able to have a good go at guessing the fourth track as there are only two notes left Laughing

As I said though - they're only easy if you know the answers as a certain stand in presenter on Radio 2 would say Smile

Ruddles - I haven't had time to think about this yet and I'm going away for a few days tomorrow so will have a go at it next week unless someone else guesses it in the meantime. Smile

Hi Ruddles, I'm back from my trip to Bonny Scotland and ready to have some guesses:

Rock-a-HuLA Baby - Elvis Presley
The LAst Time - Rolling Stones
This is My Song - PetuLA Clark
Ob LA Di Ob LA Da - Marmalade
Make ME Smile (Come Up and See ME) - Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel
Release ME - Engelbert Humperdinck
From ME to You - The Beatles
You Don't Have to Say You Love ME - Dusty Springfield

There seems to be quite a few - this could take a long time Smile

Great guesses Angel but you've not hit on the right one yet

To make it a bit easier I can tell you that the note contained in the title of the fourth track is not ME as we've already had that in one of the original three clue tracks and I've told you that it's not DO

By my calculation that only leaved FA and LA so you need to concentrate on those two notes

Don't forget it could be a track with a foreign language title or even one that's total gobbledegook Smile

Sadly not the right answer Schiz but you're on the right track

The track I am looking for is a hit from the mid sixties and I know from your previous posts the group concerned is one of your favourites from that era Smile

SFF: was that the appalling Jonathan King? I think it was.

He used to post on the old Radio 2 message boards under JK2001 or something, always protesting his 'innocence'.

Yes, you're right it was Jonathon King.. and I'm wrong on two points!
firstly it was Loop di Love, not La... and the version I was thinking of was by the French chap J Bastos!! Embarassed Laughing
his version was much better...

I'm really struggling with this link - I suspect it's probably something I don't know anything about like Dr Who

Any chance of a clue? Smile

Ruddles, it's not anything like Doctor Who. There is an historical link.

This extra track should make it a lot easier:

The Man with the Child in his Eyes – Kate Bush

Just to narrow it down a bit have I hit on the right former President with any of my guesses or are we talking about a President not already mentioned? Smile

So I think we must be talking about the President being Adams - am I right?

In which case am I looking for a different track by Bryan Adams or one by a different artist of that name Smile

Hi Ruddles, it's not President Adams Sad

The track I'm looking for was a big hit in 2000
