Found it. Very clever one -- I would've bet on this one being the last one discovered, I think.

47. LET IT go + 17. The TIDE is high + FLOW/EBB = LET IT FLOW (73. Toni Braxton) + EBB TIDE (98. The Righteous Brothers)

Good job on finishing it, good job on the Pastor figuring out the mechanics, good job on everyone! Interesting that 'The Tide Is High' as a red herring was the first song that started people in the right direction and ended up being the last one matched.

I'd been going back and forth for a long time on whether to apply this theme to song titles or movie titles. My desire to get 'The Lazy Song' into a puzzle decided me.

One of your best, I think, in terms of intricacy and difficulty in construction. Thank you!

Thanks! I hope you like the next one, too. It's a movie game and it's ready to go, but I'm going to give it a couple of days.

I am not a movie fan, so I'll probably not take part in the next game.

BTW, what were all the answers & the matches? Sometimes when a Tangredi game ends, it doesn't show what all the correct stuff was.

And ironic in that I pulled the theme out of the title after complimenting Frank last time on how cool it was that his game titles rarely led to the puzzle themes on their own....

But still much too clever for me to figure out how that theme actually worked! Thanks for the game, Frank!
