Big Jackpots

A couple of big whopping jackpots were won last Monday: £210 at Portobello Tap and £200 at the Portobello Tap. There was great happiness and everyone celebrated… apart from the jealous ones!


Here are the music round cheats for tonight

The first is for the Argyle Bar:

Something to do with mouses

This utterly meaningless song had enough bounce in it to get to number one in the Swedish and Danish charts. It only reached no.25 in the UK charts but since then it has racked up over one BILLION views on youtube.

We live in a different world now. Take one of my favourite bands from 1988, the Primitives. One of their songs got to number 25 as well. And how many views does it have on youtube?

Less than eight thousand.

No Justice.

Meanwhile, the Safari Lounge music round will contain this song by Elvis Costello:

The “other” Elvis

I remember becoming aware of Elvis Costello in the late 1970s and it may have been because he appeared on an edition of Blue Peter. That’s my memory anyway, and the strange idea that there was another famous music human named Elvis stuck in my head (the other one was so dominant that he needed no surname).

I liked Elvis Costello straight away because he looked a bit like my Uncle Stefan, and that’s a good thing.

No mega monster jackpots tonight but plenty of good vibes and good quizzing and perfectly decent prizes to boot.

Round up the team and we’ll see you tonight.

See you tonight.

Monday Means Sweet Pain. And Prizes.

Pain is getting up and going to work when you just don’t want to.

Prizes is what I have for you later tonight.

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £100. Cheat: The picture round includes the answer Newcastle United.

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: The music round includes the French Elvis himself, mister Johnny Hallyday. Check out the video below.

The French? Are THEY rock and roll?

Here’s my attempt to put all of the nationalities of Europe into rock and roll order. Most rocking at the top, most JLS at the bottom. (You know I like pop music but JLS were genuinely shite).

  • Greece
  • Hungary
  • Germany
  • Holland
  • Portugal
  • Italy
  • Belarus
  • Poland
  • Switzerland
  • Sweden
  • Norway
  • Spain
  • Luxembourg
  • Austria
  • France

I’m sure you can fit in the ones I’ve missed out.

Anyway, here’s that Johnny Hallyday song. It’s totally great.
