9pm – The Raging Bull, Lothian Road. Jackpot £30 Cheat: Tori Amos (music round)
Michael was scheduled to start the Wednesday quiz at the Raging Bull last week, but circumstances prevented this so the first quiz will be tonight.
The Raging Bull is towards Tollcross – it’s on the left as you’re heading up Lothian Road and it used to be Moriarty’s but it feels a lot nicer now. They have lots of delicious booze including speciality cocktails and they also do snacks. Quiz is at 9pm.
Here’s the cheat tip: Tori Amos is in tonight’s music round at the Raging Bull on Lothian Road:
It’s a 1997 mega-banger and it was a number one hit. Here’s the video:
Although it topped the chart as a Tori Amos song, this version was created by Armand Van Helden. It bears virtually no resemblance to the originalwhich is great in its own way and kind of sounds like PJ Harvey.
The youtube comments on the dance track (the number 1 version) are full of people saying how they mis-heard the lyric.
“I wanna bring you a toast of mine, I wanna bring you a toast of mine … Saturday fish, Saturday fish, Saturday fish, Saturday fish”.
“Honey, bring me toast and my elixir”
” Ah honey bring you close to my, Ah honey bring you close to my hips hips yeah…..Ah honey bring you close to my, Ah honey bring you close to my hips hips yeah. Scatter baby, scatter baby, horsey”
” scabby fish scabby fish scabby fish “
” Are you bringing toast tonight?”
The real lyric is ” Now honey bring it close to my lips, yeah. Got to be big”, but people are hearing toast and fish.
If we had time, we could analyse this and draw a weighty conclusion about the human condition. But, it’s nearly 10 am -so I’m just going to get on with posting this.
And if you win the jackpot tonight you could buy some really nice toasting bread and some LOVELY fish and have a real good fish toastie.
And have enough money left over for a wee trip to the seaside.
And that’s because dreams come true at the quiz.
So anyway – if you’re anywhere near Tollcross tonight, please go and visit the Raging Bull and give young Michael a boost at his first quiz.
Other than that I’ll see you at the Joker or the Monkey
