"Five names that I can hardly stand to hear": All from charting singles.

1. accomplished
2. carbon
3. inclement
4. misconstrued
5. prefix

Have fun!  (If anyone gets No. 5 I'll be amazed, though it was a Top 40 hit.)

misconstrued is in "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover"

Inclement will come to me shortly.

You got "50."

And I stumped you with "inclement" when I was in town in Dec.   :wink:

Not even remembering that at this point.  I want to say it's something by Macca...a line where he rhymes inclement weather with something or other we can do together.  I can totally hear the line but nothing before or after is coming to me, so I'm stuck thinking of the song title.

AAAAAaaargggh

LOL! I always thought the line about the bombers riding shotgun in the sky was "barbers riding shotgun" (because the barbers were pissed off at hippes for not getting haircuts).

So glad someone got this one.

Mike, I'm disappointed that you didn't get the first one, as winter's gonna turn to spring and you haven't accomplished a thing.

Yeah, I was afraid this one was too far removed ... it was Smokey and the Miracles' "Yester-Love."  "Yester is/The prefix that we fix/To things that have gone ..."

I got number one during the Saturday replay, but I guess I forgot to post it. It was that Tavares song we heard last week, "It Only Takes a Minute".

New scavenger hunt
« Reply #13 on: August 11, 2007, 10:34:16 AM »
This hunt has a theme: Songs I heard on oldies station 3WS while in Pittsburgh last week.  I have to say, I was impressed with the breadth of the station's playlist; it rivals what I read of WCBS's.

1. as yet
2. 73
3. Mozart
4. James Taylor
5. gunnin'
6. tumble
7. vibes
8. violins
9. whippoorwill
10. fawwin'

3. "Blinded by the light" (go-kart Mozart, I'm guessing it was the MMEB version)
4. "Rings", Cimarron (that *IS* impressive -- was it a bigger hit in P-burgh than it was nationally?)
10. H,FJ&R of course (they shoulda followed it with "I Wike Dweamin')

more to come as I think of 'em...
