Re: Nature in Lyrics Challenge

Hello everyone.

 

Well, whilst I was off-line, both @jonsie and @Bambino have submitted answers for today. Rather than wait until 11pm [I`ll explain why in a moment], I will give the results of the answers they gave:

 

@jonsie  gave DOG in Leave My Kitten All Alone. Although the song does contain the word "dog" and was recorded by The Beatles during the time frame of this Challenge, it was never officially released at the time but appeared on bootlegs [which don`t count] and later was included in the Antholgy albums [which again don`t count].

 

@Bambinoreplied he cannot think of a song with SEA in the lyrics.

 

Therefore, neither gave an answer for today.

 

But now we get to the interesting bit, which has made this one of the closest run Challenges yet.

After both had given their answers for today [although the results had not yet been announced],

 

@jonsieposted "sea shell one word or two?" [but did not give the song it appeared in], which was the clue to the two missing answers.

 

To be fair to the others, I will now reveal the two missing answers and close this Challenge.

 

SEA = Julia [with lyrics "sea shell eyes"]

DOG = Hey Bulldog [with lyrics "sheep dog"]

 

The reason why these are the right answers in this Challenge is same reason which I gave to accepting

STREAM = Tomorrow Never Knows, explaining some say the lyric are "downstream" as one word but my sources give two words; and also accepted

WORM = Roll Over Beethoven. Although I did not say at the time, some say the lyric is "glow-worm" as one word, but my sources give two words, which is why I accepted the answer.

 

Whilst I can understand the differences in opinion as to whether or not these are correct, I reached my decisin from considering the references in my extensive library of Beatles` book rather than some of the rather dubious lyrics posted on internet sites.

 

I did say, a few days ago, that there were two "tricky" answers and those were the ones.

 

Thank you everyone for taking part - particularly to @Bambino and @jonsie for sticking with it right to the end.

 

As with previous Challenges, I will shortly post the statistics for this Challenge - and announce the winner, who submitted the most correct answers.

 

The NATURE IN LYRICS CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED.

 

The thread for the next Challenge - WEATHER IN LYRICS - willbe up by 11am, so you can all check it out and have 12 hours before it opens at 11pm tonight and you can submit your first answer.

 

Once again, thank you all for making this one of the closest run Challenges and an absolute pleasure for me to run.

Re: Nature in Lyrics Challenge

I'm pretty mad at myself if honest. I gave the song Hey Bulldog and knew Sheep Dog was in it. I simply forgot to write it down.

So damn and blast (and that's pretty tame to what I'm really thinking) clown tongue

I just want  to make reference to this section (in bold) above @Mi-Amigo 

I have absolutely no issue with this and your decisions at at all.

YOU are the quizmaster and set the questions along with the rules.

 

I think you have been very fair in admitting (and allowing) SONGS which you didn't have on your original list. As you said, you learnt something new when this happened. 

 

Roll on the next one. Thanks for organising them. wink

Re: Nature in Lyrics Challenge

Thank you @Cleoriff   for your very kind comments.

 

I might be, as you put it, the quiz-master but when you guys find those answers in songs not on my list, it makes me re-check my sources and re-listen to the brilliant music again and again, and, I admit there are times when I say to myself "How did I miss that?!".

 

It has been a pleasure to work on creating these Challenges and running them for all of you who have an exceptional knowledge of The Beatles and their music.

I hope all of you enjoy the next one - WEATHER IN LYRICS - with some easy and some difficult answers to find.
