Two quizzes from me and one from Gordon down at Harmonium – the vegan pub in Leith.
7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £180. Cheat answer – Del Shannon turns up in the music round. See vid below to hear the song…
8pm – Harmonium. Jackpot £60. Cheat answer – One of the picture round answers is Italy
9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat answer – the picture round contains an answer ‘Open Water‘. It’s that film where they go diving and then get left behind by the boat.
The Del Shannon song is a belter. A real pop classic from the early days. I like the bit where the girls dance round him during the middle eight looking for all the world like pagans who are about to sacrifices Del.
Obviously there were no human sacrifices in the studio that day but things still didn’t end well for Del. Suffering from depression, Shannon shot himself dead with a rifle in 1990. He was 55 years old.
