I know I have been virtually completely absent from both here and the Song Bar for most of 2018. I would like to say that is down to one factor and once that is out the way, I will be back in force, but that doesn’t seem to be the case at the moment, although I do still live in hope that I can incorporate these things in my 2019 routine. Rest assured though, I do think of you guys often and hope that everyone is doing really well.
Anyway, thought I would post a bit of a quiz for you all. I have always struggled with cryptic crosswords, but one of these days I would love to make it my mission to succeed with them. With that knowledge in mind, you need to be aware that if you can’t do a cryptic puzzle, there is a fair chance you can’t create one either. So don’t expect New York Times style clues here, more like ramshackle clues of dubious quality.
I did copy the concept from another blog I have also been very absent from, hahaha…although all the clues are mine (hence the dubious quality)
But…..can you guess the following Christmas themed tracks and artists from the clues provided:
1/ Almost a merry old soul, but he needs a multiple cover for his saw points.
2/ Mythical festive creature is not Shakin’
3/ Dick is close to the edge. At Christmas time, he’s under it with the juice of grapes.
4/ Ill travelling Jobs are locked up this sad festive season.
5/ Miniature Santa is by the ocean with the lads.
6/ Multiple servers provide festive themed paper
7/ Catwoman and infant Kringle
8/Throw a soft fruit to implore speed from a famous ballet dancer
9/ Brady steers around hard mineral, but is saved by advertising music
10/ Honest Grace channels Europe for a festive, rather than final, time.
I will post solutions eventually once people have had a chance to ponder them…..
