Wednesday Quizzes

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £90. Cheat: Bananarama (music round – see below)

8pm – Harmonium. Jackpot £90. Cheat: Electrolux (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: Aerosmith (pic round)

If you’re coming to the joker tonight – best to BOOK A TABLE. This is just in case there’s football people taking up the berths. (Hibs are at home but kickoff is 7.45pm so any fans that do come in will disappear by half seven –  we won’t let them spoil the quiz).

The Bananarama song at the Joker is this:

 

80s classic. Most of you won’t be old enough to remember Bananarama but they were bigger than the Spice Girls to the power of Little Mix.

My favourite was Keren, she was the one with the dark hair, the one in the middle of this photo:

Come To The Pub Quiz

Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £100. Cheat: Leffe (pic round)

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

The DJ Sammy song in the music round at the Safari is easily one of the greatest three hundred tunes ever written. Witness the majesty in this video:

You know this music is similar to the music your body will create at the moment of your death whenever that occurs in the future. This has been proven by death scientists and will hold up in a court of law OR natural justice – whichever happens first.

Actually that might be bullshit. I looked it up on Google and no one on this thread actually specifically mentions DJ Sammy, but there’s nothing to stop us hoping…

Sunday Pub Quizzes in Leith and The Old Town

Tonight:

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: PJ Harvey (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Brunei (pic round)

I love that PJ Harvey song. Something about it. Especially that brass and that autoharp or whatever it is. Jingle jangle (but in a good way, not an evil way). And parp.

Thursday Quizzes

Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £150. Cheat answer: Rene Magritte (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Aluna George (music round)

The music clip in tonight’s Newsroom quiz by Aluna George is marked ‘Parentla Advisory. That usually means means it’s full foul-mouthed but I just watched the video and didn’t spot that. If anything, it’s a compilation of fairy tales…

And don’t forget: there’s always a chance of winning TINNED FRUIT at the quiz. Dreams do come true:

Hmm … jam…

Wednesday Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

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

8pm – Harmonium. Jackpot £60. Cheat: ELO (music round -see below)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £120 Cheat: Duran Duran (music round – see below)

The ELO song at Harmonium is this one:

Not their best song, but ELO are the kings of the universe. If you have a spare 45 minutes, listen to Time, the greatest album ever written.

Meanwhile, the Duran Duran song at Brass Monkey tonight is this one. A real belter, one that can’t have justice done to it from a twenty-second music round clip.

The video is very Duran, but before they had the budget for ‘Rio’.

Monday Banana

Great £250 win for Luke last Monday. Back to some sense of normality tonight.

We’re at a quarter-of-a-grand at the Brass Leith…

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £50. Cheat: One of the answers in the music round is an old band called Animotion. Hear their song by clicking on the video below…

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: one of the answers in the picture round is Liver, as in the organ. Yeuuuucch.

This tune is not one of the best-known 80s tunes but it’s quintessential eighties. Yeah, I’m using that word.

Heavy synthesizers, big drums, big bass, big everything. Even the vocals are ‘eighties’. I can’t exactly describe how, but they are.

And there’s loads of dressing-up in the video. And there’s a swimming pool.
