The Topical Ten. Can you Guess them from the Clues ?


Recommended Posts

Good guesses, everyone.

Laurie and Bazooka got so many, so quick, it didn't leave much left, but here's your chance to get the last two.

Laurie got #'s 1,2,4,6,7 correct. :coolio:

Bazooka got #'s 3,8,10 correct. :coolio:

Honorable mentions to Old55 for #5 and #9, those answers are very close. :coolio:

"American Girl" could technically be an answer for #8 but it did not crack the U.S. top 40. "American Woman" did.

"Little Man" and "Short D#ck Man" could technically be answers for #5 since they hit #21 and #14 respectively, but I'm looking for a song that hit the top 10.

"Orange Crush" could technically be an answer for #9 but it didn't crack the Top 40.

Here's a couple of clues:

#5: Don't think height, think family jewel size.

(Old55 and Bazooka, your answers were on the right track)

note: I said "I don't measure up" because I was thinking of a euphemism for you-know-what and that would make the answer something that I have. (not me, Brad, but the other guy who I quoted for that question) :grin:

#9: This soft drink is still around, but doesn't get much exposure, so think of a soda that you don't hear of too often. (It's spelling on the can is slightly different from the song).

Here's a re-cap:

1. She may be afraid of spiders but she's always right. Answered

2. I don't think the guys would want to live in these, but the girls would love it. Answered

3. Even trapping it in glass didn't make it stand still. Answered

4. If I were a bird of prey, I would do this. Answered

5. I don't measure up to all the other guys. See clue above

6. Ali-baba's favorite pasttime. Answered

7. You and I are trapped in an oreo cookie. Answered

8. She was born in the U.S.A. Answered

9. A soda vending machine would dispense this song. See clue above

10. This song was found posted on a tree with a photograph. Answered

Thanks to all the participants! :thumbsup:

Thanks for the invite, Darryl. That was fun! :coolio:

Now go get #'s 5 and 9. :rockon:

Well done Phil. :)

I never realised until someone pointed it out to me. You can definitely hear a different lead voice (Gerri Polci) and Frankie Valli singing backup falsetto. Ironic, isn't it, because that was probably their biggest Hit, a remix version charting high again 19 years later.
