I'll post the answers after the set if no one gets any by then.

Is Ian Hunter involved with one answer?

nope.

two of the remaining three were in even in a recent movie together.

I looked up some lyrics w the words in question. there are a few songs that feaure the words, but I suppose you're looking for the most "popular" or accessible answer?

ones you'd hear on KFOG or The Band

Re 3) I know Rod Stewart had an album called A Spanner in the Works, but I can't pin it to a song.

the song in question uses that phrase, but breaks it up a bit.

UB40s If It Happens Again uses "spanners". Not a song in heavy rotation -- or any rotation -- on KFOG, but a song I'm familiar with.

Mark, which song were you going after?

Here's a quick new scavenger hunt.  Y'alls know the rules: all are Top 40 charters, not in the title; bonus frink points if you come up with one I didn't intend.

calliope
embryo
fashioned (NOT old-fashioned)
spectacle
spectacles

embryo


Ms Reddy was still an embryo, with a long long way to go in "I Am Woman" -- which is why my mom thought it was an anti-abortion song!

Mark, which song were you going after?

Spanner = "Industrial Disease"  Dire Straits
Bower = "Gallows Pole"  Led Zeppelin
Strewn = "Sunday Bloody Sunday"  U2

(hint = the latter two HoF guitarists recently appeared with Jack White in It Might Get Loud)

Nothing leaps to mind on any of yours, I'll have to keep racking my brain.

calliope = "Blinded by the Light"
embryo = Mike gets points for Helen Reddy for the World's "I Am Woman"
fashioned (NOT old-fashioned) = Level 42, "Something About You" (fashioned by fate)
spectacle = Barry Manilow's true-blue spectacle, "It's a Miracle."
spectacles = Donovan looks through crystal speck-tickles in "Epistle to Dippy."

Haven't done one of these in a while...  8 words, find them in a song lyric.  6 of the songs I'm thinking of were Top 40 hits, one is a cultish obscurity for chart geeks and one was an early single that didn't chart for a rock pioneer.

botheration
determination
cogitation
masturbation
salutations
preservation
investigation
accusations

I was going to say "Give Peace a Chance" is all of them, but I think it's just "masturbation."

"determination" = the Impressions, "Choice of Colors"

This is wrong; I misremembered the lyric.

I think there's a verse of "Ball of Confusion" that could contain all of them, but I'm sure that's not right. But one of them, perhaps?
Let's get right to it.

Gaz gets his masturbation right (er, can I rephrase that?) and urth is onto something with "B of C" -- one of the remaining 7 is in there.

There's also "masturbation" in Green Day's "Longview."

Frink points!  But was "Longview" a Top 40 single or just a popular album track? (my '90s chart knowledge is not what it should be)
