Who, Charlie Watts? I mean, Jack Watts.

And I thought MY clues were too obvious

Is that a drum roll I hear?  Charlie's good tonight, inee?

Yes thrillseekers, the surnames of all the players in my team can be found in the title of songs my favourite band The Rolling Stones have recorded at some point in their very long career (61 years and counting).

I got the idea for this teaser from @Timothy Reddan-A'Blew who devised one some time back using Beatles songs.

Here are all the clues/hints/signposts in order of appearance:

  • Post #3 - "Congratulations" is a song the Stones recorded.
  • Peter Light - "Shine A Light" is a Stones song and also an excellent doco made by Martin Scorsese.
  • Pictorial clue - This caused a lot of confusion.  It was a reference to my avatar .... Keith Richards.
  • Mick doesn't collect the green stuff - A Rolling Stone gathers no moss.  This is what helped @WalkingCivilWar .
  • WCW's clue was "gimme" (shelter)
  • This may be the last time you can participate - another Stones song.
  • Demonstone - it's obvious, isn't it?
  • longshot listener / loneliest throngs / singleton holster - all anagrams of The Rolling Stones.

Onto the team then, with the relevant songs listed in team order.  (Some surnames match more than one song.)

B:        I'm Free     Sparks Will Fly     Ain't Too Proud To Beg

H/B:    Short And Curlies     Dear Doctor     Heart Of Stone

C:        Long Long While     Paint It, Black     Wild Horses

H/F:    Love Is Strong     Brown Sugar     Jumpin' Jack Flash

F:        Good Times, Bad Times     I'm A King Bee      Cook Cook Blues

R:        Street Fighting Man     Miss Amanda Jones     The Under Assistant West Coast Promo Man

I/C:     Waiting On A Friend     Shine A Light     Sweet Black Angel     Little Red Rooster

So that's it.  My well is dry, the arsenal is empty, there is no more ammunition, I am bereft of inspiration, the creative juices have dried up and I have run out of ideas.  Thank you to everybody who participated in some or all of the 26 brainteasers I have posted over the journey and I trust you will recover from the ordeal and return to mental wellness soon.

What better way to close this thread than this classic from 1964?  Good things happened that year!

I take heart that, as the full title goes, 'this may be the last time'. So, from my bias,

Never heard anyone ever use Jones -jones in this context same as you never hear the word felicity either.

Sth Yarra library has a dictionary that covers every english word since about the 18th century. The vast majority of words are never or seldom used. Trump became POTUS with a vocabulary of only a few hundred words. Has never read a book apparently. All his Trump books were written by ghost writers.

America's biggest con man.

Probably apocryphal, but Frank Sinatra reputedly said, on being presented with a book as a gift, 'What do I want a book for? I've already read one!'

Well, this is felicitous!

Fittingly for a music related teaser, here is a song called 'Felicity', recorded in the early 80s by Scottish indie band Orange Juice.

 

Their singer Edwyn Collins later became well known for his hit song 'A Girl Like You' from 1994.

👏 @Bombay Airconditioning and @Allus Monk. Persistence Rules!

It does, I had a few wrong attempts….

My initial take on the Avatar clue was a bow. Then I was thinking they’re blue, they fly and they were protecting their planet from being mined. So I had Blue Sky Mine, Midnight Oil, then Jayden SHORT Memories and Max KING of the mountain. The trail then went cold….

Oh, and by the way, @Demonstone, I'm prepared to hold the fort - or at least toss it around a bit - while you're on what we hope is just a (well-earned) sabbatical.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
