Those of you who've played the LSWE may remember my Merry M.... er, good friend _ARMENIAN_. You know, this guy...

Image

Yeah, you can't forget a face like that now, can you.... even if it isn't his best side. Anyway, he posted a few games over the years based on some of his spy experiences with The Organization... mainly because he needed outside help due to the fact that his cryptology skills were on the level that he couldn't even crack the combination to Mel Brooks' luggage. After numerous missions that ended with disastrous results due to his incompetence, _ARMENIAN_ was eventually assigned to the highly classified position of mailroom clerk. And so it was that one of his first assignments in his new role as office lackey was to infiltrate The Organization's top secret music library to retrieve a playlist for The Chief's personal deejay to play at the next big event (Surely you're familiar with the Party at the CIA?). Alas, our bumbling spy wannabe entered the vault only to find that The Organization even kept its huge collection of music coded.... of course it did. So.... think you could lend him a hand again before his next mission, which he'll have no choice but to accept, will be scrubbing the exploding toilets in the guest washroom?

Instructions:

Provide the title and artist to the following 100 sets of lyrics below. And then, using a principle that is in no way, shape or form strict and uniform (you'll see)... but that you must still discover for yourself (Code name: Tangredi), use the 100 songs below to solve the 51 clues on the playlist at the bottom of the game. Most of the clues are to song titles, but there are a few artists and album titles as well. Some of the clues you may be able to deduce the answer for simply from the information provided, but I want to know how it can be found in the game. Each of the 100 songs in the game provides at least one element to the answer to one of the 51 clues... there is no gratuitous music in this game.

Since this was an LSWE idea that got entirely too big to put in the next series, I've decided to post this as a game that can be worked out collaboratively like the Tangredi games. I invite all of my LSWE players to help out in solving this mystery. I think there are certain elements to the theme some of you will figure out pretty quickly... perhaps even as early as your first pass. There are some clues whose solution is somewhat easy to spot, but there's also quite a few that are much more cleverly hidden. And keep in mind... the theme is NOT universal! There are many different ways to find each of the 51 clue answers within this game!

Hopefully I didn't mess anything up (yeah, right). Good luck!



1. Outside there's a box car waiting
Outside the family stool
Out by the fire breathing
Outside we wait 'til face turns blue

2. If you are confused check with the sun
Carry a compass to help you along
Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around

3. Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well who am I to keep you down

4. Midnight on the water
I saw the ocean's daughter
Walkin' on a waves chicane
Staring as she called my name

5. I've got so much honey
The bees envy me.
I've got a sweeter song
Than the birds in the trees.

6. The young have problems, many problems
We need an understanding heart
Why don't they help us, try to help us
Before this clay and granite planet falls apart

7. Lovers keep on lovin'
Believers keep on believin'

8. Up in Memphis the music's like a heatwave
White lightning, bound to drive you wild

9. You gotta get your groove on, before you go get paid
So tip up your cup and throw your hands up
And let me hear the party say

10. You give me a feeling in my heart
Like an arrow passin' through it
'spose that you think you're very smart

11. I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
We're livin' in a powder keg and givin' off sparks

12. What I've got they used to call the blues
Nothin' is really wrong
Feelin' like I don't belong

13. I saw a treehouse on
The outskirts of the farm
The power lines have floaters
So the airplanes won't get snagged

14. Let your arms, shelter me from all hurt and pain
Mmm, light my heart, with your everlasting flame
Ooh, mmm-mmm

15. A dragon lives forever but not so little boys
Painted wings and giant rings make way for other toys

16. It's not in the words that you told me, girl
It's not in the way you say you're mine, ooh
It's not in the way that you came back to me
It's not in the way that your love set me free

17. I wrestle, with your conscience
You wrestle, with your partner

18. Oh, I'm banging on my TV set
And I check the odds
And I, and I place my bet
I pour a drink and I pull the blinds
I wonder what I'll find

19. With the wind in your hair of a thousand laces
Climb on the back and we'll go for a ride in the sky

20. One night, me with my big mouth
A couple guys had to put me in my place
When I see those guys these days
We just laugh and say do you remember when

21. Well I met a man down in Hollywood, now I ain't namin' names
He really worked me over good, just like Jesse James

22. It was just a rapture
Creeping through me slowly
As you're going to my head
And my heart beats faster
When you take me over
Time and time and time again

23. Here come the dancers
One by one
Your mama's calling
But you're having fun

24. While the Black bands sweatin'
And the rhythm rhymes rollin'
Got to give us what we want
Gotta give us what we need

25. If I was President
And the Congress call my name
I'd say "who do . . .
Who do you think you're fooling?"

26. Some are quick
To take the bait
And the catch the perfect prize
That waits among the shells

27. The shadows high on the darker side
Behind those doors, it's a wilder ride
You can make a break, you can win or lose

28. Came an answer from the kingdom
With our brothers we will share
All the secrets of our mountain
And all the riches buried there

29. Ev'rytime I'm with you, baby
I can't believe it's true
When you're layin' in my arms
'n' you do the things you do

30. I remember standing on the corner at midnight
Trying to get my courage up
There was this long lovely dancer in a little club downtown
I loved to watch her do her stuff

31. Went to a party the other night
All the ladies were treating me right
Moving my feet to the disco beat
How in the world could I keep my seat

32. And nobody knows him,
And nobody cares,
'Cos there's no hiding place,
There's no hiding place - for you.

33. Don`t let the screen door hit you
On your way out
Don`t you drown when your
Dreamboat runs onto the ground

34. Yeah, keep on shinin' your light, gonna make every thing
Pretty mama, gonna make everything all right

35. According to all sources (what sources now?)
The street´s the place to go (we better hurry up)

36. If I listen close I can hear them singers, ohhhh
Voices in your body coming through on the radio

37. Promise me baby you won't let them find us
Hold me in your arms, let's let our love blind us

38. I'm in heaven, I get carried away
I dream of him and me and how it's gonna be
Other fellas call me up for a date
But I just sit and wait, I'd rather concentrate

39. Mama, take this badge off of me
I can't use it anymore.

40. Cover me with smooches, baby
Cover me with dirt
Roll me in designer dresses
I'll never get enough
Emoticons come, I don't know why
Cover up love's lullaby

41. It`s no secret that woman
Is my loving cup
Cause she sees to it
That I get enough
Just one touch from her
You know it means so much

42. You were always something special to me -
Quite independent, never caring.
You lost your charm as you were aging.
Where is your magic disappearing?

43. Well she looked at me
and I, I could see
That before too long
I'd fall in love with her

44. Send it in a letter baby
Tell you on the phone
I'm not the kind of girl
Who likes to be alone

45. I'm sure you'll have some cosmic rationale
But here you are in the ninth
Two men out and three men on

46. If you say run, I'll run with you
If you say hide, we'll hide

47. I lose my cool when she steps in the room
And I get so excited just from her perfume
Electric eyes that you can't ignore
And passion burns you like never before

48. I recall the yellow cotton dress
Foaming like a wave
On the ground around your knees
The birds, like tender babies in your hands
And the old men playing checkers by the trees

49. Everybody's got a little light under the sun

50. Making believe this is what you've conceived
From your worst day,
Moving in line when you look back in time
To your first day

51. I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

52. Oh they say she died one winter
When there came a chilling frost

53. Breakfast where the news is read
Television, children fed
Unborn living, living dead
Bullet strikes the helmet's head

54. Like fat cats driving around in jeeps through the city,
Wearing big diamond rings and silk suits.
Past corrugated tin shacks holed up with kids and
Man I don't mean a Hampstead nursery.

55. Love lost, such a cost,
Give me things that don't get lost.
Like a coin that won't get tossed
Rolling home to you.

56. Said we'd be forever
Said it'd never die
How could you love me and leave me and never
Say goodbye

57. And I'd like to change my life, and you know I would
Just to be with you tonight, baby, if I could
But I've got my job to do, and I do it well

58. But we won't let nothin' hold us back,
We're putting our selves together,
We're polishing up our act!

59. Well, when I know you know baby, everything I say,
Meet me in the country for a day.
We'll be happy and we will dance.
Oh, we're gonna dance our blues away.

60. She's over bored
And self assured
Oh no, I know
A dirty word

61. And I've given up hope for the
Afternoon soaps
And a bottle of cold brew

62. She's got a little bit of something, God it's better than nothing
And in her color protrait world she believes that she's got it all

63. Isn't it rich?
Are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground,
You in mid-air..

64. We've had our doubts, but we never took them seriously
And we've had our ins and outs, but that's the way it's supposed to be

65. 'Cause I'm a picker, I'm a grinner
I'm a lover and I'm a sinner

66. And when you feel sad and blue
You just come and see me anytime
I'll be waitin for you dear
And your fears you can leave behind

67. Pretty women out walking with gorillas down my street
From my window I'm staring while my coffee goes cold

68. I've done no harm, I keep to myself;
There's nothing wrong with my state of mental health.

69. It always ends up this way,
Me begging you every day.
A love that I cannot have,
You broke my heart into half.

70. I lost him once through friends advice
But it's not gonna happen twice
'Cause all advice ever's gotten me
Was many long and sleepless nights

71. Same old song,
Just a drop of water in and endless sea
All we do,
Crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

72. You're built like a car, you've got a hub cap diamond star halo
You're built like a car, oh yeah

73. When I'm tired and thinking cold
I hide in my music, forget the day
And dream of a girl I used to know
I closed my eyes and she slipped away

74. I used to think maybe you loved me, now I know that it's true
And I don't wanna spend my whole life, just a waitin' for you

75. Friday night I crashed your party
Saturday I said I'm sorry
Sunday came and trashed me out again

76. Friday night and the lights are low
Looking out for the place to go

77. I keep hearin' you're concerned about my happiness
But all that thought you're givin' me is conscience I guess

78. Gonna have us out in five minutes' time whatever
"Please could you make it ten" I told the operator
I'm havin' so much fun in this elevator

79. I just can't believe the loveliness of loving you
(I just can't believe it's true)

80. But you know that I'll forgive you
Just this once, twice, forever
'cos, baby, you could drag me to hell and back
Just as long as we're together - and you do.

81. I walked her home and she held my hand
I knew it couldn't be just a one-night stand
So I asked to see her next week and she told me I could

82. The chills that you spill up my back
Keep me filled with satisfaction when we're done
Satisfaction of what's to come

83. One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all

84. Now the feeling is beginning to grow
And the meaning is something you only know
If you believe it take my hand and I'll take your heart

85. Baby, take off your coat
Real slow
Take off your shoes
I'll take off your shoes
Baby, take off your dress
Yes, yes, yes

86. I like smoke and lightning
Heavy metal thunder
Racin' with the wind
And the feeling that that I'm under

87. Now it's the middle of the night on the open road
The heater don't work and it's oh so cold
You're lookin tired you're lookin kinda beat
The rhythm of the street sure knocks you off your feet

88. Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity...Romeo and Juliet
40,000 men and women everyday...Like Romeo and Juliet

89. Tony, Tony, bo bony
Banana fana fo fony
Fee fie mo mony, Tony

90. That's the way the whole thing started
Silly but it's true
Thinkin' of a sweet romance
Beginning in a queue

91. Sometimes I just forget, say things I might regret
It breaks my heart to see you cryin'
I don't wanna lose you, I could never make it alone

92. He said now you just stay right where you're at
And I didn't bother tellin' the durn fool
I sure as hell didn't have anyplace else to go.

93. Take a little trip
Take a little trip
Take a little trip and see

94. My body is burning
It starts to shout
Desire is coming
It breaks out loud

95. How much does it cost?
I'll buy it!
The time is all we've lost
I'll try it!

96. Yo, yo, yo, yo, baby-pop
Yeah, you come here, gimme a kiss
Better make it fast or else I'm gonna get pissed

97. Don't tell your friends or I'll say your a slut
Plus it's your fault, you were rubbing my butt
I'm very sensitive, some would say that's a plus

98. She's laughing inside 'cause they can't refuse
She's so beautiful now, she doesn't wear her shoes
She doesn't like to choose

99. Yeah, everybody's got a bomb
We could all die any day
But before I'll let that happen
I'll dance my life away

100. And you say you wanna go for a spin
The party's just begun, we'll let you in
You drive us wild, we'll drive you crazy

Music List Being Searched For (This list will self destruct in exactly 5437129047233 seconds):
4. 1988 #1 hit by a UK band who never charted in their home country -- initial instinct is Wild Wild West, Escape Club
6. Song that was ironically accused of plagiarizing one of the above band's other songs -- The Old Man Down the Road, John Fogerty (I remember the big ruckus that he supposedly plagiarized his own song with CCR, Run Through the Jungle)
9. 1986 song featured on a cop movie soundtrack -- probably something from Beverly Hills Cop

Yeah, you can't forget a face like that now, can you.... even if it isn't his best side. Anyway, he posted a few games over the years based on some of his spy experiences with The Organization... mainly because he needed outside help due to the fact that his cryptology skills were on the level that he couldn't even crack the combination to Mel Brooks' luggage. After numerous missions that ended with disastrous results due to his incompetence, _ARMENIAN_ was eventually assigned to the highly classified position of mailroom clerk. And so it was that one of his first assignments in his new role as office lackey was to infiltrate The Organization's top secret music library to retrieve a playlist for The Chief's personal deejay to play at the next big event (Surely you're familiar with the Party at the CIA?). Alas, our bumbling spy wannabe entered the vault only to find that The Organization even kept its huge collection of music coded.... of course it did. So.... think you could lend him a hand again before his next mission, which he'll have no choice but to accept, will be scrubbing the exploding toilets in the guest washroom?

Instructions:

Provide the title and artist to the following 100 sets of lyrics below. And then, using a principle that is in no way, shape or form strict and uniform (you'll see)... but that you must still discover for yourself (Code name: Tangredi), use the 100 songs below to solve the 51 clues on the playlist at the bottom of the game. Most of the clues are to song titles, but there are a few artists and album titles as well. Some of the clues you may be able to deduce the answer for simply from the information provided, but I want to know how it can be found in the game. Each of the 100 songs in the game provides at least one element to the answer to one of the 51 clues... there is no gratuitous music in this game.

Since this was an LSWE idea that got entirely too big to put in the next series, I've decided to post this as a game that can be worked out collaboratively like the Tangredi games. I invite all of my LSWE players to help out in solving this mystery. I think there are certain elements to the theme some of you will figure out pretty quickly... perhaps even as early as your first pass. There are some clues whose solution is somewhat easy to spot, but there's also quite a few that are much more cleverly hidden. And keep in mind... the theme is NOT universal! There are many different ways to find each of the 51 clue answers within this game!

Hopefully I didn't mess anything up (yeah, right). Good luck!

50. A 70's Chicago song 57



Just for the sake of clarity, the answers to the main game itself will not by themselves be the answer to any of the clue list songs. There will be a few clue songs that can be deduced from a single song in the main game... but it will never just be that song or artist title itself. Ergo, you are looking for a 70's Chicago song that wasn't one of the 100 above...

10. You give me a feeling in my heart
Like an arrow passin' through it
'spose that you think you're very smart
HOW DO YOU DO IT?/THE DAVE CLARK FIVE


Will look at solving some of the ones not yet identified when I have a bit more time, but noticed this and wanted to correct it before someone followed the trail too far. The hit version of this was by Gerry and the Pacemakers. The song was originally suggested to the Beatles by producer George Martin as the followup to Love Me Do. However, the lads hated it and wanted to record one of their own compositions instead. Martin said "Fine. If you can come up with a song as good as this one, we'll record that instead". They brought in Please Please Me, and the rest is history, as the song became their first British #1. It was a happy ending all around, though, as How Do You Do It was given to fellow Liverpudlians Gerry and the Pacemakers (also managed by Brian Epstein), and that, too, went to #1. The Beatles DID do a demo recording of How Do You Do It, which can be heard on The Beatles Anthology 1, and their lack of enthusiasm for the tune is pretty obvious.

This makes me wonder, though, about THIS clue:




25. This #2 hit is one of many songs that name drops the artist of the song in Clue 10


Off the top of my head, I can't think of ANY songs that name drop The Pacemakers, let alone "many", so I am guessing you are referring to The Beatles here.

This is why Frank does A's and B's when he has multiple lists, and why I should have done it as well (but was too lazy). When I use the word "Clue," I am referring to the bottom list of songs/artists/albums to be identified... so the artist referred to there is the artist who did the song that is the answer to #10 in the bottom list.

And I'm thinking Clue 10 references Bob Dylan, who is certainly name-dropped in a lot of songs, from Ricky Nelson to Hootie and the Blowfish.

Which would make the 1966 song referenced in Clue 10 "Rainy Day Women #12 and #35"...

FIRST CONSOLIDATION

Provide the title and artist to the following 100 sets of lyrics below. And then, using a principle that is in no way, shape or form strict and uniform (you'll see)... but that you must still discover for yourself (Code name: Tangredi), use the 100 songs below to solve the 51 clues on the playlist at the bottom of the game. Most of the clues are to song titles, but there are a few artists and album titles as well. Some of the clues you may be able to deduce the answer for simply from the information provided, but I want to know how it can be found in the game. Each of the 100 songs in the game provides at least one element to the answer to one of the 51 clues... there is no gratuitous music in this game.

Since this was an LSWE idea that got entirely too big to put in the next series, I've decided to post this as a game that can be worked out collaboratively like the Tangredi games. I invite all of my LSWE players to help out in solving this mystery. I think there are certain elements to the theme some of you will figure out pretty quickly... perhaps even as early as your first pass. There are some clues whose solution is somewhat easy to spot, but there's also quite a few that are much more cleverly hidden. And keep in mind... the theme is NOT universal! There are many different ways to find each of the 51 clue answers within this game!

Hopefully I didn't mess anything up (yeah, right). Good luck!

Other than a single letter missing from both 63 and 64, the songs and relevant artists all appear to be correct here. And good job keeping the lyrics to #40... they may come in handy.

As for the answers to the clues... I'll withhold comment on them until the concept behind this puzzle is figured out. But I will say several of the guesses provided can already be definitively solved by what you have to work with....

10. How Do You Do It?/Dave Clark Five

As I said before, this is incorrect. The artist for the hit version is GERRY AND THE PACEMAKERS. The Dave Clark Five never recorded this, to my knowledge. The Beatles did a demo of it, which resurfaced many years later as part of the Anthology project.

This could also be Al Green, who did it originally. Seal did a fine cover recently as well, proving that it's a good tune no matter who does it.

UPDATED CONSOLIDATION

Provide the title and artist to the following 100 sets of lyrics below. And then, using a principle that is in no way, shape or form strict and uniform (you'll see)... but that you must still discover for yourself (Code name: Tangredi), use the 100 songs below to solve the 51 clues on the playlist at the bottom of the game. Most of the clues are to song titles, but there are a few artists and album titles as well. Some of the clues you may be able to deduce the answer for simply from the information provided, but I want to know how it can be found in the game. Each of the 100 songs in the game provides at least one element to the answer to one of the 51 clues... there is no gratuitous music in this game.

Since this was an LSWE idea that got entirely too big to put in the next series, I've decided to post this as a game that can be worked out collaboratively like the Tangredi games. I invite all of my LSWE players to help out in solving this mystery. I think there are certain elements to the theme some of you will figure out pretty quickly... perhaps even as early as your first pass. There are some clues whose solution is somewhat easy to spot, but there's also quite a few that are much more cleverly hidden. And keep in mind... the theme is NOT universal! There are many different ways to find each of the 51 clue answers within this game!

Hopefully I didn't mess anything up (yeah, right). Good luck!

Well, it is certainly significant, then, that song #12 on the list is Rainy Days and Mondays and song #35 is It's Raining Men by the Weather Girls

And to think I was actually afraid the concept behind this game might be figured out right away and the game over with in a day or two!

I'll reiterate and/or clarify a few things a that may help you figure out what's going on here....

While there are a number of different ways to arrive at solutions to the clues from the puzzle songs, the basic concept behind the solutions themselves is uniform. And you may be overlooking it because it is too simple...

The solution being sought for each clue is only what is being asked for. If it is a song, the song title itself is the solution. Two of the clues seeking songs will involve the artist in the puzzle as well (and maybe another oddball or two), though you'll understand why that is once you know the fundamental concept this game is built around...

You all have already correctly guessed more of the clue answers off just the cryptic info I provided than I thought you would. Though they're not all correct, enough of them are that you might want to try seeking them out in the puzzle as well. Come up with enough "significant" songs from the A list that match to the B list, and I'm pretty sure the light bulb will eventually have to go off...

I looked up the lyrics to the last 3 songs so we can finish that first song list:

14. Let your arms, shelter me from all hurt and pain
Mmm, light my heart, with your everlasting flame
Ooh, mmm-mmm

ROCKIN' CHAIR-Gwen McCrae

24. While the Black bands sweatin'
And the rhythm rhymes rollin'
Got to give us what we want
Gotta give us what we need

FIGHT THE POWER-Public Enemy

66. And when you feel sad and blue
You just come and see me anytime
I'll be waitin for you dear
And your fears you can leave behind

IN MY HOUSE-Mary Jane Girls

Also, I had an idea about one of the clues in that second song list:

50. A 70's Chicago song

Could this be "Questions 67 & 68"? Songs 67 & 68 ask a question ("Is She Really Going Out With Him?" & "Who Can It Be Now?"). It might not be it because even though it was released as a single in 1971, the song came out in 1969.

Esto brought up in a post that a couple of songs had the wrong lyrics. Maybe this is the reason why the lyrics are wrong in Song #40. Here are the correct lyrics to that song:

40. Cover me with smooches (kisses), baby
Cover me with dirt (love)
Roll me in designer dresses (sheets)
I'll never get enough
Emoticons (Emotions) come, I don't know why
Cover up love's lullaby (alibi)
