Cheats

Here are the music round cheats for tonight

The first is for the Brass Monkey Leith:

These men are from Essex

I always used to think Dr Feelgood were American when I heard this song on the radio, but they’re from Essex.

Every day is a school day.

Meanwhile the Portobello Tap music round will contain this opus by Kanye West:

Michael Hutchence wandering around Prague like it matters.

Because it’s Kanye, Wikipedia has a whole page about this song, going into frankly unnecessary depth concerning the song’s meaning, composition and reviews.

What do we learn? This is the best nugget:

” It reportedly took over six months for West to draw inspiration for the second verse.[4][5]

I thought the guy was supposed to be a genius?

I mean, in 1998 me and David McGeorge wrote the whole of ‘Last Bus To Falkirk‘ in about half that time, never mind one verse.

And the cunt’s a billionaire.

Well, quarter billionaire.

There’s no justice.

Anyway – if you want to be a billionaire, you have to start somewhere. I recommend winning the jackpots tonight as a kick-starter.

Ooh.

See ya later – x

MONDAY 25TH FEB 2019 – MONDAY QUIZZES

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Samurai Jack (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Fine Young Cannibals (music round)

Monday has appeared like a creepy ghost of last week. And just like last week there are two quizzes tonight but that’s the last time that will happen as young quizmaster Joshua will be starting at the Saint Andrews Brewing Company as from next Monday.

Joshua is a hip young quizmaster with many questions and answers ahead of him. you’ll like him!

Meanwhile, here is the cheat music for tonight’s quiz at the Safari. It’s 80s super-legends the Fine Young Cannibals .

Well – I call them super-legends, but I don’t think The Fine Young Cannibals had a huge amount of hits.

They just showed up, defined mid-80s UK pop and then fucked off again before becoming tired, worn-out and irrelevant, unlike, arguably, The Pet Shop Boys.

In fact, looking up their discography I discover that they had 5 x Top Ten hits and lasted for about five years. These are the right numbers for a pop band.

So that’s the way the biscuit breaks this fine Monday morning. Get out there and be the best human you can be. Yes. Inspirational. Truly.

Yo,

Dr Paul

Monday 7th Jan 2019

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Pet Shop Boys (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Guns n Roses (music round)

Welcome back! Everything is normal. Everything is great. I love New Years.

Here is the bonus free answer you get for reading this. It’s old-time rockers Guns n Roses, who seemed so wild in the 80s and, looking back, seem so tame.

Watching bits of the video, it’s clear that Guns n Roses had a policy to keep moving on stage, running if possible. I’m guessing this is a calculated move, designed to make sure the show remains visually exciting at all times. It doesn’t look spontaneous. I ain’t saying this is a bad thing – just an observation.

Anyhow: I don’t have a lot else to say today except I hope you all had a great New Year and I hope to see you at the quiz tonight.

Everything is normal again. I’m happy.

Yo,

Dr P
