Tonight’s Quiz:

9pm – O’Connors. Jackpot: £30. Cheat clue: Wamdue Project (music round)

It’s Tuesday which means getting your feet moving down to Canonmills for Josh’s quiz at O’Connor’s.

Or up to Canonmills, if you live in Inverleith.

Anyway – do we really go down to England or up to Dundee? I met a woman last night who was planning to go to Dundee this morning. I hope she’s OK.

Cheat News

One of the answers in tonight’s music round is Wamdue Project who had a one-hit career in the late 90s with a song that made very little sense at all but was played at every club and on every radio station until everyone in Britain didn’t understand it together.

here are the lyrics. If you can make sense of them, please post in the Facebook group or leave a comment here.


Must be the reason why I’m king of my castle
Must be the reason why I’m free in my threshole
Must be the reason why I’m king of my castle
Must be reason why I’m making examples to you

See? It’s complete bollocks.

This is the song:

The bangin’ sound of ninety-nine

Don’t try too hard to make sense of it, because it doesn’t make sense.

Just get yourself to the quiz tonight and we can be friends forever.

9pm at O’Connor’s

Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £50. Cheat: Mister Strong (pic round)

7pm – Portobello Tap. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Lindsay Davenport (pic round)

9pm – Argyle Bar Jackpot £150. Cheat news: John Lennon (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Avril Lavigne (music round)

Cheats

Here are the music round cheats for tonight

The first is for the Argyle Bar:

Post Beatles Lennon

It’s John Lennon out of the Beatles, a couple of weeks into the 1970s, with a new haircut for a new decade.

Fun facts about the song:

  • ‘Instant Karma’ was written in one hour.
  • Phil Spector produced the song after Lennon phoned him up telling the American “Come over to Apple quick, I’ve just written a monster.”
  • Lennon had stated that royalties would go to the Peace movement, but this was later “discreetly forgotten”, according to author Barry Miles.
  • The Beatles were finished by this time but still together officially. Instant Karma was released in February but a proper split announcement didn’t come until April when Paul McCartney announced he was finished with The Beatles.
  • The long hair that Lennon (and Yoko Ono) cut off their heads of prior to the release of the single was donated to Michael X‘s Black House Commune, which was a headquarters for Black Power in London. Lennon would later pay Michael X‘s bail when X was up for extortion. Following this, Michael X fled to Trinidad where four years later he would find himself being hanged for murder.
  • By the way, most of this is from a very detailed Wikipedia page dedicated to the song.

Meanwhile the Safari Lounge music round will contain this song by Avril Lavigne:

Michael Hutchence wandering around Prague like it matters.

This Avril Lavigne song is one of the most unconvincing things I have heard since the Bank of Scotland and RBS both closed their branches at Goldenacre and had the nerve to put up posters explaining why this would be BETTER for me as a customer, because although the nearest branch was now absolutely fucking miles away, it would be a better branch.

Tossers.

Anyway, what are my banking woes to you, the quiz fan? Nothing at all. Don’t let me bother you.

Instead, come to the quiz, win the money and take a photograph of yourself. You won’t regret a thing.

See you tonight – x

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Another Level (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £150. Cheat: Marc Chagall (pic round)

The big pot of the week is at the Tolbooth Tonight. All other jackpots have been snaffled recently and the Tolbooth is the last jackpot standing.

Will the Speckies win it? Will you deny them? The drama starts at 8pm.

CHEATS

By the way, here’s the audio cheat for tonight which refers to the music round at the Persevere:

Sexy Blimey

This tune sits at the summit apex of the sexy boyband mountain. There are no hidden meanings here.

Another Level don’t beat around the bush with allusions, hints and suggestions; they just want to lick you up and down. It’s as straightforward as that.

That’s all from me. I’ve had a ridiculous week so I’m miles behind with everything. Result: this post is a shortie.

See you tonight

Love,

Dr Paul

Thursday 3rd October 2019

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – The Strathie. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: One True Voice Moss (music round).

7.30pm – Ship Inn, Musselburgh. Jackpot £90. Cheat answer: Jean-Michel Jarre (music round) – Currently in the middle of Refurb. (should be re-opened before Christmas)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Game of Life (pic round).

NEW PUB!

Last week saw the first quiz at The Strathie. It’s on Iona Street, just off Leith Walk and very close to the Brass Monkey Leith.

Going to the quiz at the Strathie offers some key advantages:

  1. Easier to Win. There are Less teams. The first quiz last week was FIVE teams. SO better chances to win than at Joker or Brass which are nearer to TWENTY teams
  2. Cheaper booze. The Strathie is old-style. It’s been recently refurb’d but it is proper old-style. Booze is CHEAPER in the past and the Strathie is an actual TIME MACHINE!

I’m the host and I’ll see you there in a few hours. You’ll love it.

Cheat Clue

Here is the cheat clue for tonight’s music round at the Strathie. It’s old boyband One True Voice who didn’t last long.

Decent song

So, OTV split up before they could even release an album. Their “years active” are given by Wiki as 2002-03 and they charted with exactly two singles.

The one here was their top hit – it got to number two and sold over a quarter of a million copies (this is before downloads) and it’s a perfectly decent song but then it was written by the Bee Gees, so that’ll explain it’s lack of shiteness.

Wikipedia has a handy where-are-they-now section on the OTV page. One of them is working as Dizzee Rascal’s backing singer. One of them works at the BBC doing PR for Doctor Who.

Showbiz is all about the thrills.

“THURSDAY IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT”

That’s the slogan that will be burned on your brain forever when you win the quiz tonight.

See you there.

Cheers,

Dr Paul

If you have stuff to say, you can always say it on the Dr Paul Quiz Group on the FACEY.

CHEAT TIPS

Here’s tonight’s cheat tip. It’s Another Level who will appear in the Joker & The Thief music round with this song:

Blimey. What a pile of muck.

I have nothing else to say today because the kid is sick and off school so I have extra duties looking after her.

Perhaps she’ll get her shit together and tomorrow’s post/email will be jam-packed with quality chat of an acceptable Dr Paul standard.

You’ll have to tune in to find out whether it’s a banger packed with anecodtes and uncompromising views and hilarity or whether it’s a looking-after-business type of post with a cheat clue and the jackpots.

What will it be?

The suspense must be killing you.

Dr P

Tonight’s Quiz:

9pm – O’Connors. Jackpot: £120. Cheat clue: LCD Soundsystem (music round)

Cool.

Cheat News

One of the answers in tonight’s music round is LCD Soundsystem singing a song about getting older but still retaining hip.

Or still wanting to.

This is the song:

Madonna when she was still fairly good.

The video is a live performance (and it goes on a bit) – so it doesn’t sound exactly the same as the cut in the music round – but you get the gist.

Be there tonight and feel the PUMP as the O’Connor’s jackpot reaches over £100. Oh yeah.

Come to the quiz tonight. 9pm at O’Connor’s

This is how it feels

Lots of love,

Monday Night Quizzes – Whether You Love Orange Soda Or Not

Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £50. Cheat: Dr Feelgood (music round)

7pm – Portobello Tap. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Kanye West (pic round)

9pm – Argyle Bar Jackpot £120. Cheat news: Gone With The Wind (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Parrot (pic round)

Cheats

Here are the music round cheats for tonight

The first is for the Brass Monkey Leith:

These men are from Essex

I always used to think Dr Feelgood were American when I heard this song on the radio, but they’re from Essex.

Every day is a school day.

Meanwhile the Portobello Tap music round will contain this opus by Kanye West:

Michael Hutchence wandering around Prague like it matters.

Because it’s Kanye, Wikipedia has a whole page about this song, going into frankly unnecessary depth concerning the song’s meaning, composition and reviews.

What do we learn? This is the best nugget:

” It reportedly took over six months for West to draw inspiration for the second verse.[4][5]

I thought the guy was supposed to be a genius?

I mean, in 1998 me and David McGeorge wrote the whole of ‘Last Bus To Falkirk‘ in about half that time, never mind one verse.

And the cunt’s a billionaire.

Well, quarter billionaire.

There’s no justice.

Anyway – if you want to be a billionaire, you have to start somewhere. I recommend winning the jackpots tonight as a kick-starter.

Ooh.

See ya later – x

Sunday 29th Sep 2019

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Boyz II Men (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Natalie Portman (music round)

Last week’s football interruption is over and the quiz at the Percy is back.

Both pubs offer a nice cool dreamy £120 tonight. Don’t miss!

CHEATS

By the way, here’s the audio cheat for tonight which refers to the music round at the Persevere:

The tune is a banger, obviously, but the video is very silly and it’s all about the costumes and the costume changes.

I think the stylist was on overtime.

It’s kind of a work of art in terms of boyband-styling. In some shots the costumes are exactly the same. In other shots they are different-but-similar.

Absolutely mind-blowing.

Anyway – if you win the jackpots tonight, maybe YOU can buy a bunch of different outfits and re-create the glory days of Boyz-II-Men.

The possibilities are limitless.

Love,

Dr Paul

Jesus, that’s bad. Luckily the clip will only be around twenty seconds long.

I have nothing else to say today because I’m already late and I have to go to the post office ,the paint shop and maybe even ASDA.
