Wednesday 3rd April

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £90. Cheat: Kiev (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: Cheap Trick(music round)

Here is the free answer for tonight’s music round at the Brass. It’s the Cheap Trick who were doing their thing in the 1970s.

This is the classic line-up:

  • The singer who really really fancies himself,
  • The fat drummer with “cool” shades and hat who can play uptempo and smoke a fag at the same time.
  • The comedic guitarist with “wacky” threads; and
  • The other bloke who you don’t really notice – i.e. the bass player, obvs:
Fred, Cindy, Kate, Keith and Ricky

It was a recipe for success and Cheap Trick went on to sell ninety billion records. More or less.

Anyway, the main thing to remember is that quiz loves you and you love the quiz and that people who stay indoors on a Wednesday night are the kind of people who will die alone.

See you tonight.

Love,

Dr P

And now here’s the cheat music round clue for tonight’s quiz at the Safari. It’s Bobby Vee:

From so long ago, its not even really a video

This is from even before I was born. It’s THAT old, kids. But it’s still a pretty cool sound.

Mind you, it’s about a guy who’s been dumped and he’s kind-of doing the “crying voice” which nowadays makes up to 60% of chart pop.

So, for that reason, I’ll cast it on the NO pile.

The YES pile? That’s full of Roxy Music, Scooter and going to the quiz.

Thursday 28th March – Thursday Quizzes in Edinburgh & Musselburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: The Commodores (music round)

7.30pm – Ship Inn, Musselburgh. Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Lewis Carroll (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Mean Girls (pic round).

So! A brand new DP Quiz started last Thursday in the attractive fishing community town of Musselburgh.

The debut was great but the jackpot wasn’t won so we have a rollover: get yourself down to the Ship Inn at half past 7 for a crack at the cash. The quiz host is Kerry and she’ll be delighted to see you.

Here is the music cheat answers for tonight:

At the Argyle the music round includes a Commodores number from the 1980s, which is after Lionel Richie had left:

I’m sure that when he heard the song, Lionel would have thought: “Goddam rats cocks, shit a brick mofo! That song is good.”

“GODDAMED RATS COCKS, THAT SONG IS GOOD.;” – Lionel Richie, 1986

But any regret at leaving the group would have waned as he quickly remembered that he’d already had massive solo hits with ‘Hello‘, ‘Endless Love’, ‘Stuck On You’, ‘All Night Long (All Night)’ and all those other good grooves.

In fact, although “Nightshift” reached #3 in the US and UK charts, the song proved to be the last big hit for the Commodores.

There were no more.

The five members of the band now work various jobs including looking after the crazy golf at Pasadena and looking after a car park in Tuscaloosa.

All while Lionel Richie (who went on to have literally MILLIONS of hits) now lives in the Elysee Palace in Paris and has fresh fruit and cream served to him whenever he likes by a fleet of naked concubines, all from different and wildly exotic countries.

When the singer goes solo, it doesn’t always work but it’s fair to say old Lionel is the winner here.

Anyway, enjoy the quizzes tonight. Go and support Kerry in Musselburgh. Check it out!

Pub Quiz Action – Wednesday 27th March 2019

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Bruce Almighty (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: B-52s (music round)

Here is the free answer for tonight’s music round at the Brass. It’s the B-52s who are right up there along Slade with claims to being the greatest band of all time.

Fred, Cindy, Kate, Keith and Ricky

The B-52s always looked great. In fact, ‘Rock Lobster’ was the first record I bought, back in the 1980s.

Rock Lobster is the song with weird whale and fish noises. There’s a great youtube video of Fred Schneider talking about it.

Anyway, the main thing to remember is that quiz loves you and you love the quiz.

See you tonight.

Love,

Monday 25th March 2019 – 3 Quizzes In Edinburgh Tonight

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £100. Cheat: A-Ha (music round)

7pm – St Andrews Brewing Co. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Miley Cyrus (music round)

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


Remember: tonight is the start of the last week of the month and that means Dead Pool forms will be available for April.

If you’re uptown or anywhere near the University, be sure to check out our BRAND NEW QUIZ, starring fresh quiz host Joshua, at Saint Andrews Brewing Company.

It’s a great boozer and a big boozer too: you’re sure to get a seat.

The St Andrews Brewing Co is at Potterrow, and will cater to more or less your every need. Certainly your food, drink and quiz needs. Maybe your emotional needs. Probably not your sexual needs.

Also – you should know about the cheat clue for the music round at the St Andrews Brewing Co. It’s Miley Cyrus:

I think the video is trying to promote Miley Cyrus as something wholesome. One of the youtube comments says something like “Wow – this is the same person who made rwecking ball”

Yeah – kind of. The video is still stuffed with un-necessary crotch shots. Exploitation and over-sexualization comes in different flavours.

Meanwhile, here’s the cheat for the Brass Monkey Leith music round which is Norwegian heavy rock act, A-Ha

Holy cow. Belter.

Anyway, remember that top psychologists recommend the “EMPEROR” approach which is where you just assume before question one is even asked that you’re probably going to win the quiz.

This gives the maximum chance of winning. Try it tonight.

To finish, here’s a picture of a dog that sometimes turns up at the Safari.

Sunday 24th March

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Capoeira (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Missy Elliot (music round)

OK -the free answers above are definitely correct. I double-checked.

Sunday night is gonnae be great. Last Sunday before they put the clocks forward. Best time of the year cos it’s lighter later but you still get a proper night time with the moon and all that jazz.

Don’t be stuck in the house, come out and get stuck into the quiz.

Anyway. Here’s the music round cheat for tonight’s quiz at the Tolbooth:

This was all over your radio in 2001. It got to number 4 and this was back when a number 4 records meant that everyone knew it.

So unless you’re some kind of extreme youth, you probably knew the answer anyway, but there you go and heigh-ho.

The cheat isn’t ALWAYS useful but it’s always worth checking.

And don’t forget: no violent threats at the quiz. That’d be great, thanks.

See you later.

So! There’s a brand new DP Quiz starting tonight in the fair town of Musselburgh. Get yourself down to the Ship Inn for a crack at this new quiz, hosted by Kerry.

Here are the music cheat answers for tonight:

At the Ship the music round includes a Drake song:

Nae idea what’s going on in the video and I also have no idea why Drake is such a big deal.

I mean, the tune It’s OK but seems a little uninspiring. Like crushed-up aspirin on white bread.

Meanwhile, the Newsroom music round includes Demi Lovato:

By the way, if you click the vid to listen to the song, you’ll need to forward to about three minutes which is where the actual song starts. Prior to that it’s some kind of film or soap opera.

Anyway, enjoy the quizzes tonight. Go and support Kerry in Musselburgh. Check it out!

Meanwhile, here is the cheat music for tonight’s quiz at the Safari Lounge. It’s The Who:

I’ve always found the Who a wee bit tedious but luckily the clip I play in the music round only lasts about fifteen seconds.

They rock, and all that, but I always feel something boring lurking underneath their rock. Something that smells like empty bookshelves… can’t quite put my finger on it.

Anyway, never mind the Who. Come to the quiz and have fun and win and be the best you can be.
