Cheat News

If you get the email or red this page then you’ll always get a free answer for the quiz.

Tonight’s music round Foreigner who know their power ballads and how to handle them.

This one is lush:

New Order, now quite old.

Did you know why they are called ‘Foreigner’? It’s because they were started by Mick Jones (English) while he lived in New York, so he’s the Foreigner.

Congratulations to last week’s £120 jackpot winners. I hope they invested it wisely.

Let the new pot begin!

Monday 10th Feb 2020

Quizzes Tonight:

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

7pm – Portobello Tap. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Narcotic Thrust (music round)

9pm – Argyle Bar Jackpot £90. Cheat news: Manet (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat news: Keane (pic round)

Best jackpot tonight is at the Portobello Tap with Kerry at 7pm.

Cheats

Here are the cheats for tonight. The first is for the music round at the Brass and it’s Blueface:

Complimentary, but also not.

This was rated as 26th best song on 2019 by Billboard. I’m not convinced and I have no idea what he’s talking about so I searched “Thotiana meaning” and I got this from BlackAmericaWeb.com

“So in summary Blueface is a rapper that people love to hate and if someone calls you a Thotiana it’s not a compliment; but “bust down Thotiana” is a top 10 compliment.

Oh kids, you make no sense. “

I have also discovered that “thot” itself is an acronym, meaning “That Hoe Over There”. Hmmm. Not classy.

Meanwhile, the Portobello Tap music round includes this song by Narcotic Thrust:

Proper Pop

It’s the sound of 2004! Did you know: “The name Narcotic Thrust is an anagram of “Stuart Crichton” and he’s one of the blokes who produced the record.

There you go, something that used to sound mysterious and exciting broken down into a tedious narcissistic self-anagram. Thanks, Stuart.

It’s Monday. Get moving!

Sunday 9th Feb

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Maxi Priest (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Persian Gulf (picround)

Sunday’s here and we welcome ALL SURVIVORS of Storm Ciara ot tonight’s quizzes.

Cheats:

Now here is the cheat item for tonight’s music round at the Persevere. It’s Maxi Priest:

Maxi Priest

This song was written by Cat Stevens who had loads of hits in the 60s and 1970s. They had a hippy vibe. Then he became Yusuf Islam and, as far as I know, never had a hit again.

The Maxi Priest version was also a big hit, reaching the Top 5 in 1988 in the UK charts as well as top-ten positions in charts in Norway, Ireland, New Zealand, Netherlands and Belgium.

Nice work.

Bonus Maxi Priest fact. Maxi is the cousin of the bloke who was the singer for Inner Circle (‘Girl I’m Gonna Make You Sweat’)

Anyway – I’d better get this posted before the storm tears down the internet.

See you later.

Love,

Dr Paul

Thursday 6th Feb 2020

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – The Strathie. Jackpot £120. Cheat answer: Manic Street Preachers(music round).

7.30pm – Ship Inn, Musselburgh. Jackpot £90. Cheat answer: Jean-Michel Jarre (music round) – Currently in Refurb. (The pub should have been re-opened by now but they had to replace the roof so new date is currently unknown)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £150. Cheat answer: Leopard Seal (pic round).

It’s Thursday. Time to dress up right and hit the town (Newsroom) or just throw anything on and go for a drink (Strathie)

Cheat Clues

The music round at the Strathie tonight contains this piece of music by Manic Street Preachers:

The Manics, massive back in the day – no one has heard of them now

The Manic Street Preachers are a funny old band in terms of popularity.

In the 90s and early 00s they were total box office – the biggest band in Britain and they ruled the charts.

But then one day, their time was over, and now it seems that no one has heard of them.

Folk under 30 have NO IDEA who the Manic Street Preachers are.

This doesn’t make me sad or happy.

I neither hate nor love “The Manics” (as folk my age sometimes call them). I like their Elvis song.

I’m just interested in the phenomenon of massive-to-missing.

I think it happens all the time.

For example: Travis, Gladiators, Vienetta.

What are your favourite things-that-used-to-be-massive?

Leave a comment or just come to quiz and tell me to my face. Oh yeah.

Love,

Dr Paul

QUIZZES TONIGHT

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Felix (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Harry Styles (pic round)

If you’re worrying about Brexit, don’t.

Everything is going to be OK.

And if you are genuinely worried, ask yourself what the worse is that could happen?

Maybe you get deported. Hey – that’s just another word for taking a sabbatical.

Maybe your wife could be deported? Well, we can all dream.

In the meantime the only certainy is that if you don’t come to the quiz then you can’t win the quiz.

This is the kind of step–by-step thinking that’s going to get us through the hard times together. Come, let’s dance.

CHEAT TIPS

Speaking of dance, tonight’s music round at the Joker includes the a nineties dance pop classic by Felix.

Listen to this all the way through and I challenge not to rave, at least for half a minute.

Eighties culture UK

Actually – I tihnk it’s a live vocal – it doesn’t sound exactly like the record. But all the way, either way – it’s all good.

Do remember what it was like to first properly rave? Freed to dance -seemingly in eternity. Smoke machines. No booze. Great stuff.

See you later,

And here are the cheats to help you WIN:

Cheats

First is a Tenpole Tudor, led by Eddie Tenpole who, according to the chat, is a direct descendant of Henry the 8th.

But instead marrying several women and cutting their heads off, Eddie Tenpole instead made pop music and later became host of the Crystal Maze on TV.

Here’s the only Tenpole Tudor song that really still gets played on the radio and it’s in the Argyle Bar music round tonight:

A proper rabble-rouser

Meanwhile, the Safari Lounge music round includes the following song by Robbie Williams who, quite frankly, spends the video acting like a prick.

I’m sure Mister Williams is a lovely bloke but he’s surely too old to be dressing up like a fanny?

A rabbit. Honestly.

What a load of rubbish. Anyway – now you know who does the song and that’s all that matters in the music round.

It’s Monday. I love you – see you tonight

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

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

Come to the quiz and make Sunday a TOAST for your life.

Cheats:

Now here is the cheat item for tonight’s music round at the Tolbooth Tavern. It’s eighties mega-monsters Duran Duran

Khalid – Talk

Lyrics to the song contain the words “nuclear war” which is just one of the reasons this is so eighties.

Surprised tje video doesn’t include Simon Le Bon finishing a Rubik’s Cube and a guest appearance from Metal Mickey.

All with Jim Bowen giving away a speedboat to some striking miners in the background while someone calls Mike Read and Matt Bianco a bunch of wankers right to their face.

While Jerry and Margo share a Vienetta while watching Tomorrows World fronted by Kieran Prendeville

Seriously kids, the eighties was just one moment of class after another.

Well class entertainment on TV and class war outside the pits. Either way, it was memorable.

See you later.

Dr Paul
