    2. They're straying from sad songs alread - Rocket Man? New England? and I'm getting fed up with Hallelujah. And Johnny Cash is becoming the new Queen, if you see what I mean.

      You missed everyone but me becoming or about to become a grandad.

    1. It's a bit of a swizz - the answer's "implicit" - it's implicit in the clue. If you think too much about it you get a headache.

    1. You'd better not get that played in preference to Thunder On The Mountain...which is top of my e-mailed list. Unless they play another from my list instead.

      Having said that, I've had my quota of plays for this week already.
