Saying thank you for a christmas card with smilie buttons…
Of course I could have turned to toads or other bug-eating animals, but I was afraid that those would multiply uncontrolled then. And since my fly swatter didn’t help much, I was looking for experienced help, and this green feller was so kind to come along and fight these critters:
That was the last we have seen of these bugs here!
(Based on green GreenSmilies smilies, of course…)
Welcome to a new edition of my music quiz, a little different from the previous weeks… Like back in January, a bunch of smilies from GreenSmiles.com describe four lines of a song – which can’t be a word-by-word transcript, of course… so:
Which lines of which song by which band are illustrated here?
– – –– – – .
Die Lösung, gefunden von Julia mit “etwas” Hilfe meinerseits: Lady in Black von Uriah Heep:
For she, the mother of all men
had counselled me so wisely then
I feared to walk alone again
And asked if she would stay
(Bei verschiedenen Lyrics-Sites finden sich auch kleine Unterschiede…)
Genauer hatte ich das so gemeint:
Short and sweet:
- Brian Greene, one of the best-known string theorists, explains the string theory (Engl. 19-minuten video; via Sebbi)
- Astrodicticum simplex about a strange “theory” about colliding planets (German).
- Mundmische, a collection of German colloquial language, slang and phrases” (via )
- “12 Dinge die ich über das Fotografieren lernte” (“12 things I learnt about photography”), with high-quality illustrations (via )
- A greed Sudoku solver – the longest smilie animation of the world?
- Open letter of the music industry to the German chancellor on the day of intellectual property – and Nerdcore’s reply (German).
Which two song lyric lines are described by these smilies?
And what’s the name of the song?
Yes, maybe that is hard – on the other hand, maybe someone instantly knows the answer…
Additional question (since I’m a Queen fan): What’s this song’s connection with Queen?
The solution, found by kanpeki:
There’s room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
from “Working Class Hero” by John Lennon.
Covered by Queen drummer Roger Taylor on his album “Electric Fire”.
Thanks for participating!
