Christmas Quizzes 2018–2019
Question of the Day : 31 December
In each clue you will find something very useful – a word hint –
picked out in bold, suggesting something you can Google to get you started.
Not long now until we start to reveal the 'final procedure' by which you'll be
able to convert these easy answers into the three words you'll be sending to
'Beyond the Pale' in order to claim your choice of prizes.
Longest track from an album (contemporaneous with Exotic Birds and
Fruit) released by an ex-member of Procol Harum (who joined in
1967), and produced by a
different ex-member (who joined in 1967): ‘this cat is nine’, allegedly.
Occurring on the PH album that Rolling Stone rated ‘at its worst
… both surprisingly mediocre and trivial’, this is the track with a
melody ‘gorgeous enough to have been written by a Bee Gee’.
‘Girl’, ‘stranger’, ‘daughter’, ‘nothing’, ‘burning’, ‘thoughts’,
‘weeping’ – the first of these words is heard on the first track of a
particular Procol album, the second on the second, the third on the
third, the fourth on the fourth, the fifth on the fifth, the sixth on
the sixth, and (predictably enough) the seventh on the seventh; your
simple task is to name the eighth song in this sequence.
