with all due respect to my darling Bird, i got the "mock deer" straight away as pointing to his bastard status but also a "mocking of the deer" tune...it was a brilliant entry

...i loved it Rhaenys :cheers:

 

While I’m most thankful for your appreciation, I do actually think it’s a stretch as my concept only matched one letter of the three and the adjustment kinda took away from it. (the thought process started from lack of sadness and Baratheon stag, became false sadness for a false stag. To find any musical reference, I wanted to go for the mock stag’s lament as per the mock turtle’s song, but with the letters I had, this translated into mock deer and a kinda random but at least cheery synonym of ‘song’.)

It had nothing to do with the musician Castellan mentions because I didn’t google mock deer, and I also didn’t intend the mocking the deer itself although calling Joff mock deer/stag is mockery enough. So nope, there wasn’t all that much in this as you guys think, but I’m glad it worked out :lol: :lol:

I see everyone's still got their mojo (except me). Very hard to choose. May have to look again actually.

Ugh nope, you’re not alone with that feeling. I kinda lost my mojo around the middle of the last game and it’s surprisingly difficult to bring it back. Oh well, I need to flex my brain muscles.

Educate me please, which opera is this? :leaving: 

Erkel Ferenc: Hunyadi László - here is a performance on YouTube. (Meghalt a cselszövő... is the choir piece I was thinking of.) 

My votes:

1) 3.

2) 6

3) 10

4) 8

It was indeed very difficult to choose. Marvellous round!

Ah of course. I never even read the drama, the most I can associate with the story is the painting. :( I should really improve my culture and listen to these pieces.

I don't, but I know it's down the ladder.

I heard there has to be a full moon out...

Or was that no moon? :idea:

The moon is up there, where birds fly.

1) 9 because it prompted me to catch up with Weird Al's back catalogue I only remembered Like a Surgeon which I liked very much.

2) 10 for remembering the important people in Robert's life. When Thackeray died, his daughters broke with the tradition of women not going to funerals. So did a large contingent of prostitutes, he used to go to them all the time and was apparently very popular. So they all had a good gravesite chat.

3) 2 because I tried for a pig themed entry and failed

4) because it sounds strangely like a real song
