CLUE ADDED TO SONG 2: An unusual word in the lyric: "overload"

https://soundcloud.com/michael-zane...ium=text&utm_campaign=social_sharing

It's best to play the game using the audio. Just 4 remaining songs; the cacaphony is thinning substantially!

There's the name of a city, state, or country that makes up (at least) part of the title of each of the remaining 4 songs:

Song 2) about 1450 miles northeast of Tijuana. An unusual word in the lyric: "overload"
Song 3) about 1400 miles northeast of last location. Mostly east, slightly north.
Song 4) about 3400 miles northeast of last location. Mostly east, slightly north.
Song 5) about 5000 miles southeast of last location. Mostly east, slightly south.*
*This city, state, or country goes by a different name now. Similar, but instead of beginning with a "C" as it does in song 5, it begins with a "K" now...


But anyone feel free to name ALL 4 remaining songs, if you can!

Wichita Lineman is correct!

The score:

Steve: 8
Craig: 2
Eddie: 1

the NEXT song named is worth 8 points, the next-to-last 13, and the last 21

***********************************************************************************************************

NEW LINK:

You are only hearing THREE SONGS simultaneously, now. The first seven seconds of each remaining song.

JUST THREE SONGS LEFT!!! I think you can make them ALL out, at this point?

REMEMBER...Each song has the name of a city, state, or country, at least in part, in its title.

Song 3) about 1400 miles northeast of Wichita, Kansas. Mostly east, slightly north.
Song 4) about 3400 miles northeast of last location. Mostly east, slightly north.
Song 5) about 5000 miles southeast of last location. Mostly east, slightly south.*
*This city, state, or country goes by a different name now. Similar, but instead of beginning with a "C" as it does in song 5, it begins with a "K" now...

If no one can proceed further, I'll post a "word" clue for song 3, late tonight...

Good luck, all!!!

Now the game has momentum!

https://soundcloud.com/michael-zaneski/untitled7/s-msHGsVh6Svz?si=588f1df4983e405194e108a71cbf6146

"England Swings" is Song 4 and is worth 8 points for Steve!

The score:
Craig 2
Steve 16
Eddie 1

Song 3) about 1400 miles northeast of Wichita, Kansas. Mostly east, slightly north.
Song 4) about 3400 miles northeast of last location. Mostly east, slightly north. (ENGLAND IS THE CORRECT LOCATION)
Song 5) about 5000 miles southeast of ENGLAND. Mostly east, slightly south.*
*This city, state, or country goes by a different name now. Similar, but instead of beginning with a "C" as it does in song 5, it begins with a "K" now...

https://soundcloud.com/michael-zaneski/untitled7/s-msHGsVh6Svz?si=588f1df4983e405194e108a71cbf6146

Just two songs remain!

Good luck, all!!!

GAME OVER!

"New York, New York" is correct and is worth 13 points for Steve!

Steve 29 ("Tijuana Taxi" 3rd song guessed, 3 points, "England Swings" 4th song guessed for 8 points, and "New York, New York" 5th song guessed, 13 points)

Craig 2 ("Seattle" second song guessed, 2 points)

Eddie 1 ("It Never Rains In Southern California, first song guessed, 1 point.)

no way for anyone to beat Steve's score of 29 points.

GAME OVER!!!

This much has been said, about the last song:

Song 5) about 5000 miles southeast of ENGLAND. Mostly east, slightly south.*
*This city, state, or country goes by a different name now. Similar, but instead of beginning with a "C" as it does in song 5, it begins with a "K" now...

No more clues, no more thinning of the file, until tomorrow morning. I'll either play the last remaining song by itself, or I'll just give a written clue...

You can hear it in there already, you just can't name it, I think...


So the endgame is fair, I will post that last clue at exactly 11 AM PST...


How the scoring has gone so far:

Steve 29 ("Tijuana Taxi" 3rd song guessed, 3 points, and "New York, New York" 5th song guessed, 13 points)
Craig 2 ("Seattle" second song guessed)
Eddie 1 ("It Never Rains In Southern California, first song guessed, 1 point.)

Steve has been declared the winner!

Congrats, Steve you have officially won Challenge #38!

The final score:

Steve 29
Craig 2
Eddie 1

The last song, btw, was "Calcutta" by Lawrence Welk, but it's a "moot song" as it would not change the outcome of the game, even if Craig got it.

Thanks, Steve, and thanks for playing!

I like this 'audio cacophony' format as a game idea. Maybe starting with 7 songs is too many, though. Next time, I'll start with 4 or 5. Needs at least 2 or 3 players to make it interesting, though.

Anyone have a mystery song #39?

If not, I have a simple letter "scramble," like VNORTH2/Steve's, that I could post...

Mystery song #39

Like VNORTH2/Steve's puzzle...

Here's a simple "letter scramble" puzzle to puzzle over:

FYSTMIRETFEF

Each letter in the above "scramble" is the first letter of a word aka an "initial".

Unscramble each letter/initial to uncover the singer, the songwriter(s), and the song title...
--and then, just name the singer, songwriter(s), and song title, if you can!

No two part thingy, one person takes all.

This song had many recorded versions for many recording artists, over the years, but it didn't become really popular until a certain debut album included the song, a little over a decade after it was first written and several recordings of the song had already been recorded by several recording artists.

It would languish for another couple of years until this freshman recording artist was asked to have the song included in a certain movie by the director of that movie, where it would then unexpectedly become a massive hit, and this recording artist would then go on to have several top ten hits. The original songwriter would finally record the song on an album a little over a decade after that.

Best of luck to all!

FYSTMIRETFEF

Here's a big clue:

The singer wanted to "recut" the song, claiming it too slow, the director said, in so many words, that it wasn't.

That cuts it down to 50 million possibilities from half a billion...give me a couple of hours and I should have it figured out...LOL

LOLOL...
Okay, okay, MORE CLUES...

It was ALSO a first time director...

There's a reference to a different song, a jazz standard, in the title of the movie in which the-song-in-question appeared.

I was getting desperate. I tried this: https://www.hanginghyena.com/solvers/word-scramble-solver but it only will work on one word at a time. laugh

Remember: Each Letter in the scamble is an INITIAL (the first letter of a word)
The complete scramble includes the initials of the singer, and songwriter:

FYSTMIRETFEF

all the clues so far:

This song had many recorded versions for many recording artists, over the years, but it didn't become really popular until a certain debut album included the song, a little over a decade after it was first written and several recordings of the song had already been recorded by several recording artists.

It would languish for another couple of years until this freshman recording artist was asked to have the song included in a certain movie by the director of that movie, where it would then unexpectedly become a massive hit, and this recording artist would then go on to have several top ten hits. The original songwriter would finally record the song on an album a little over a decade after that.

It was ALSO a first time director...

There's a reference to a different song, a jazz standard, in the title of the movie in which the-song-in-question appeared.

NEW CLUE: The song-in-question won at least one Grammy.
NEW CLUE: There was just one songwriter and the singer was not the songwriter

Bingo!

Congrats to VNORTH2, aka Steve, you are THE WINNER!

"The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" --1972 Grammy winner for Song of the Year AND Record of the Year, and it owes much of its success to its inclusion in "Play Misty For Me" --Clint Eastwood's directorial debut, in 1971.

Holy smokes ScotiaSteve takes the 12 word scramble that in hindsight with Michael's clues is just so easy....Roberta Flack.....The FTEISYF ....had no clue about writers......and Michael increasing the numbers of initials was mean and clever and made things more interesting .....(Michael note for next time=== Carol Bayer Sager songs might rate a little higher on the mean index exclamation )

I had no clue when I saw it and actually tried to use Google LOL and got nowhere. Did have fun trying

Oh, boy. A few more notes would give it away, I think…this is not the intro to this hit song. The song is not from the sixties, a bit later. The 8 notes played here is the beginning vocal.

A couple more clues. This song was released in 1978 and reached number 5, Billboard, though it’s not on Billboard’s top 100 songs of 1978. Several Spotify playlists do include this song as a top 100 of 1978…

Okay, I’ll try that letter scramble with another clue or two. This group had five top 40 hits in the mid- to late ‘70s. And…reading from Wikipedia now, this song peaked at No. 3 in 1978, not 5 as I stated earlier. They were known as a progressive rock group and they have a one word name that begins with one of these letters: (song title, band name, song name all scrambled)

MHFIADP

The songwriter, group member, and singer’s initials are not scrambled.

I had no memory of this song, until I listened, and yeah, just the "that's how much" at the end of the chorus rang a bell.

Ambrosia is about as "progressive rock" as Pat Boone, IMHO. This song, at least, is pure "soft rock", and tips its hand as late Seventies with all those major seventh chords...after wading through 1978 on youtube, I don't ever wanna hear another major seventh chord ever again, LOL.

I think they call it yacht rock now. Ambrosia is one of my favorite groups, ZZ Top being another and CCR the other. Glad it finally rang a bell!

Craig that was a cool song--remember it for sure, but I couldn't get it!

Alright.......here is something different. This bass guitar run (I'm not played on a bass however) was from a popular mid 60's garage-type pop song that was popular with a lot of local bands. Bass players will have the advantage here first. If no one can get it, I'll add some chords or another clue out. There were several covers of this song with varied tempos--my version is slower.

Michael some help coming.

No V.

Hint:

I was a little surprised at the difference in the covers this song received in arrangements and tempo from rhythm & Blues feel to garage rock. The bass run I played was a bit from "memory" and based on a 1966 faster tempo version than I had realized.......speed it up in your mind might help. The original songwriter claimed the song was stolen from his folk song collection. If no help, the chords will give it away upcoming.

That's it Mike! Jimmy Hendrix made the slower version more famous.
