Thursday offers you the chance for Marchmont middle-class niceness and manners or dirty city-centre cocktail mayhem.
Both involve a bloody good quiz at the heart of it. That’s the engine of this night out, the driver.
If you’re coming to the quiz tonight, be aware of the cheats mentioned in the details above. It’s like a free answer. Here is the cheat clip for tonight’s’ Argyle music round. It’s your old pal Stevie Wonder who was the Stephen Hawking of his day but with more groove and less interstellar physics.
That’s eighties Stevie Wonder. Good song. Solid pop. But not as cool as seventies Stevie, especially when he was on Sesame Street:
He didn’t just fanny about with Grover either, he also laid down Superstition with full funk force. On the street, for the kids. Intense:
MAke all your Stevie Wonder jokes if you like but let’s see Stephen Hawking doing something like this. ANYTHING as good as this. No. Didn’t think so.
You know what? The mood is too high. Here’s a picture of the sefront at Prestonpans just to mute things a bit:

Hey. It’s Sunday and, as I type, the weather is good. Take advantage, go outside for a while.
Then when you realise how tedious outside can be (nowhere to buy beer, nowhere to politely piss) then come back inside to the pub where everyone is your friend and you can get food and booze and win the quiz.
Here is a clip from the music round at the Tolbooth tonight:
Just like the Wizard of Oz, the video begins in black and white and then dramatically leaps into colour just as it gets to the good bit.
The good bit in the Wizard of Oz is where Dorothy travels to Oz and kills the witch and meets the Munchkins and literally everything goes completely bananas.
In the Westlife video, the “good bit” is just the chorus. 1939 > 2001
I mean, it’s a decent enough song. It’s the sort of thing that would have easily won Eurovision in 1995.
I’ve started properly listening to Eurovision songs for next month. The criticism of this year’s Iceland entry is that it sounds like a winner from the 1990s. It is predicted to fail to qualify from the semis.
My favourite so far is Greece or France or Cyprus or Moldova. Not sure yet – will need a few more listens. I’ll keep you updated because I know you care, deeply.
Two rollovers last midweek sets up a cheeky Wednesday for your pocket. One-fifty at the Monkey. That’s like.. great.
How about the music round cheat? Here it is:
This is a modern song but I like it. I thought it was much more produced, but it’s pretty bare. The video is good as well. Nothing really happens except a lift gets faster and people become more extreme versions of themselves as the lift speeds up.
