Well Steve, it is neither Tom/TJ nor oTJ playing. But I will certainly accept your compliments on behalf of the team, and pass them along. 4LaneStudios belongs to the other member of the Lightfoot Tribute Team, Lynn! I am a lover of lyrics, and I've been following your game for some time now and just couldn't resist the temptation when I realized that I actually might have a correct answer.

Now for a second attempt: Q269 -- the "dots" would indicate that it is in a position other than the start of a line, and the capital on "Intended" would make it a proper name.

Lynn (?) - the the 3rd person reference above threw me, sorry I had a

temporal brain stupidema ! I of course remember your name and the Colorado in-Deb-ted member , if I remember right. So while I am trying to get both feet out of my mouth, and offer apology, I'll check out your answer to the clue...lol

Q269 ....Intended - yup. The dots here indicate that not only is the clue word shown by the dots that it is not at the begining of the verse, but moreover, as no dots occur after the clue word(s) either, we may infer that the clue word(s) form the end of the verse line. And as Lynn said, the caps, which normally designate the first word in the sentence of verse, here are still at the end, and are simply a proper noun. So......

Q269 .... Intended = Go Go Round ? - Yes ! Congratulations again to 4LaneStudios !

I'lll post it below in the x-files.

And we are further convinced we have a formidable new contender !

So, charting on the 'X' -files:

BIG 'X' As you'll recall, indicates that the given clue is won and done.
================================================== ========
Q266 .... slave .... X Joveski gets it with 'Bells of the Evening'

Q267 .... my darling - X 4LaneStudios gets it with 'You'll Still Be Needing Me'

Q268 .... pins - X formerlyLavender gets it with 'Magnificent Outpouring'

Q269 .... Intended -X 4LaneStudios gets it with 'Go Go Round'

Q270 .... railhead .... - Remains Unanswered

Q271 .... Rocky Mountains .... - Remains Unanswered

Q272 Float me .... - Remains Unanswered

Q273 Troubles .... - X formerlyLavender gets it with 'Cobwebs and Dust'

Q274 Out on .... X Joveski gets it with 'Somewhere USA'

Q275 Paper .... X Joveski gets it with 'I'll Tag Along'

================================================== ========
All songs written by Gordon Lightfoot .

And we have a new contender amongst the regulars - 4LaneStudios to welcome into the game !

Enjoy ! 7 down, 3 to go !

I've been listening to lots of music this evening in search of my next "vistory", and I believe I've found Q270 & Q272:

"From the railhead to the boatyard" -- Long Way Back Home

"Float me out of danger until then" -- East of Midnight

BTW - Linda - you are absolutely correct on the singular of Mountains versus plural within the intended song - you got it BTW. There is
a singular usage of it in his lyrical work, but I admire honesty as I am sure you do, so since I did mean Alberta Bound as you surmised likely, you get it ! - Congrats - I'll post it.

Thanks for playing, all of you, especially our new contender - 4LaneStudios !

4LaneStudios nails 2 more down ! All in a days work for them as a fortuitous by-product in their GL vistory work. !

Kudos to 4=Lane for immediately picking up the 'dot rules' and 'caps rules' - no doubt aided to a certain extent by not seeing all the permutations of rules that evolved before the current state !

And Linda surmised my error ( now 5th +/- in 275 clues!!) in keying in 'Rocky Mountain' -singular- for the song I did intend - Albertal Bound. I should have keyed in plural on 'Mountains' - intuitively Linda caught the error, and moreover still got the Q right ! All hail Linda All Hail Linda !

BIG 'X' As you'll recall, indicates that the given clue is won and done.

HERE ARE TEN NEW CLUES FOR 12:45 am.,Fri.,JAN 22, 2009 !

Well that last ten went pretty quick. !

We have a new player that allready helped finish their second round; did great, - welcome again to 4LaneStudios in the game.

Missed a few people in this last ten - Char, jj, Dave (of Melbourne), Ron (!)and one or two other regulars my memory is not serving me well on. Y'all come back now from Mt. Pilot !

and thanks to Linda for catching my typo error on Rocky Mountain (+/- s). I set it up plural, and in the intended song Alberta Bound, it is in fact singular.
I think after being notified by her posting to win the clue of the error, I still managed to typo it again in an update,. duuuuuuh. Thanks Linda ! - for putting up with my typing !

I'm trying to give 4Lane a break for R&R from working by not asking any vistory questions. As I'm sure they are up to their necks in alligators, working away on more vistories and perhaps the proprietary questions simultaneously, I figure no need adding water to the swamp for them......good to have them.

Hope you like the new ten.

All songs can be found in Lightfoot.ca under Lyrics/Chords.

Again, this set there will be NO OLDIES, NO pre '65,NO pre UA songs at all. Stated otherwise, all songs are from the 'classic 20' albums. No story clues, no rarities, only the songs we ALL know

Have fun !

================================================== ========

Q276 .... chapter ....

Q277 .... and ready ....

Q278 .... shine in

Q279 .... secret

Q280 .... classify ....

Q281 .... smilin'

Q282 .... three ....

Q283 I'm only ....

Q284 She'll guide ....

Q285 Heading ....

================================================== ========
All songs written by Gordon Lightfoot.

Enjoy !

UPDATE AS OF 10:55 pm., Mtn Std Time, Fri., Jan 23, '09

Thanks for playing, all of you, good to see you back on this one Ron, Jenney,formerly Lavender,Mende, and Oh,Linda! as always, loyal troopers par excellence !, all of you

All of you above have made winning submissions in this new set of ten, making 5 down and 5 to go. In specific:

formerlyLavender Q279- 'Talking in your sleep' - correct !
Ron M. Q280 - 'You just Gotta Be' - correct !
Jenney Q284 - 'Mother of a Miner's Child' - correct !
Joveski Q285 - 'River of Light' - correct !
Oh,Linda Q283 - 'Affair on 8th Avenue' - correct !

Congratulations to all 5 of you !

Hey jj and Char !, we missed you (and others at the moment I can't remember the names of) both in the last ten, and thus far in this ten, hope all is well for the both of you. Char I know from reading a sampling of your posts in activity-oriented things you are just plain busy ! Likely the same for jj - you're both real anchors in the game, appreciated, as are all of you.

I hope the game is in fact a relaxing, recreational thing for all of you, I know all too well the stressors and troubles of day-to-day life; as do all of you. I wish for you that the game can play a small part in your means of putting problems out of mind , if possible, maybe for just a little while while you play, or you're thinking of one after you log off thats sticking in your head, 'cause you're just sure you know it; if only you could remember the song !

Even in those brief periods of thought, maybe those can keep the little pesky stress gremlins from taking over. You all are dignitaries, be it visiting, occassional, or semi-to-regular players. I used that phrasing to genuinely welcome 4LaneStudios into the game, but surely meant no lessening of my long standing respect for all of you players. I hope 4LaneStudios continues playing, as busy as they are. Thank you all for being part of the game.

OK biz at hand:

Here are current results Friday evening. I'll check later, too.

BIG 'X' As you'll recall, indicates that the given clue is won and done.
================================================== ========

Q276 .... chapter .... - REMAINS UNANSWERED

Q277 .... allready .... - REMAINS UNANSWERED

Q278 .... shine in - REMAINS UNANSWERED

Q279 .... secret -X formerlyLavender gets it with 'Talking in Your Sleep'

Q280 .... classify.... -X Ron M. gets it with 'You Just Gotta Be'

Q281 * .... smilin' - REMAINS UNANSWERED

Q282 .... three .... - REMAINS UNANSWERED

Q283 I'm only .... - X Oh,Linda! gets it with 'Affair On 8th Avenue'

Q285 Heading .... X Joveski gets it with 'River of Light'

================================================== ========
All songs written by Gordon Lightfoot .

5 down, 5 to go.

Enjoy !

Hi Mende. 'Ecstasy made easy' is correct, and the intended song !

I'll chart it after I briefly answer the 4 or so other submissions. Thanks !

Hi Jenney, boy it's hard being a game host sometimes. And I don't get a Vanna either ! - To admire as a professional letter-turner - .

Well.... I'd decided this before I scanned RM's thoughtfully phrased submssion on the same clue. I wanted to make sure you bop the right person on the head - (me) lol - not Ron.... I never should have asterisked and notated that; it was inviting deflated pride, and no kupi-doll from the fair sad faces....

All I meant to give leeway on was for any ambiguous submission that had a verse ending, per the dots indication of position, in either smiling, or smilin', as the intended song has a verse ending in, and interestingly on another verse line ending in smiling ! That's from Christian Island that has it both ways, in so far as Wayne Francis is correct; and I would be safe in saying he is a respected authority. Sorry Jenney, I know you interpreted my leeway as positional freedom as well. Perhaps I should have been more explicit. Hey, its just a game, huh ! Well played, but sorry.....

You've been knocking 'em, (ahem, er..) them down left and right so keep pitching OK ?

Never Say Trust Me
"It's already been done"
~~ Lynn
Hi Lynn, please forgive my minor conflation on the quoted area, the empty spaces were removed only to save pg30 space; I do that frequently.

'tseeer (thats my my now 27 yr old daughter's triple contraction from when she was about 4, of 'let us see here' => ''tseeer lol.. OK 'tseeer:

Q282 - Biscuit City - is correct ! - I like that song too. My
understanding is that Biscuit City is a euphemism used by the Hobos that road the rails; and dreamed of a paradise sort of town to rest easy in and never have to 'Light a shuck out of' - be it for a 'Watchman' , or a local constable walkin his beat, or a paucity of possibles such as no grub,chaw,coffee, or 'baccy !

Q277 - Never Say Trust Me - is correctamundo #2 ! And I like that song a lot too; not that that makes any difference. You know who else does is jj - havn't seen hide nor hair of the man in what is now the third set of ten he's been absentia, no mail-in submission by proxy or nuthin... I hope he is up and kicking....he's been a game anchor since day 1 -as have about a total of 7 people that thinned down from oh...about 26 pages back, a LOT of people tried one or 30 and then must have said 'this makes my head hurt' lol... or 'this is boring'.... how could Lightfoot's lyrics be boring ?

Most of the regulars have said some version at some time in game play of this 'you know this game has me thinking about ( clue word ) while I'm drivin' to work ! - Or, it came to me while I was mowing the lawn ! lol... Hope you are enjoying this, and it enhances your appreciation of el Gordo's minstrelsy, as so many have really said - that it has caused them to really listen more carefully, to solve a clue, or pump for the next set (one said that lol) - but the common denominator is that they like the way it has changed some of the players way of listening that pleases them.

I'll chart your winning song when I answer all the seperate submits here.

Thanks for playing again Lynn ! I am finally NOT confused as to who you are, unless of course you are part of the Federal Witness Relocation Program with a new name, all from that one mattress tag I tore off when I was 8, read it, and hid under my bed for 3 days, living on Captain Crunch and RC Cola!
Bought a new bed 6 months ago, and noticed they have removed/changed the wording on what implied NO ONE could remove it, to EXCEPT the owner may remove it..phew - I'm off the hook..lol... OK later

Ronerator: Unfortunately for Jenney, you were quite right. I saw her error in what I meant by the notation, and then was relieved someone else read it the way I intended, cause I was feeling like a real stinker to take away the fun for her on her submission.

Well, your sub mission, should you decide to accept it: - snicker- where is jj anyway ?
Q281 .....smiling Christian Island is absolutely correct, and was the intended song. Curious, given that Wayne is likely correct, that Gordo used smilin' on the end of one verse, and smiling on the end of another..well, 20 albums, and a house on the hill says he knew what he was doin' ..lol..

I'll post your Big X in the next window, as your sub mission was the last, the

UPDATE AS OF 4:40 am., Mtn Std Time, Sun., Jan 25, '09

Thanks for playing, everybody. Missed a few familar faces (er..names), but glad to to see some return and some new ones continue with us.

Here are current results as of Sunday morning. I'll check later, for that straggler - Q278

BIG 'X' As you'll recall, indicates that the given clue is won and done.
================================================== ========

Q276 .... chapter .... - X Joveski gets it with 'Ecstasy Made Easy'

Q277 .... allready .... - X Lynn gets it with 'Never Say Trust Me'

Q278 .... shine in - REMAINS UNANSWERED

Q279 .... secret -X formerlyLavender gets it with 'Talking in Your Sleep'

Q280 .... classify.... -X Ron M. gets it with 'You Just Gotta Be'

Q281 * .... smilin' - -X Ron M. gets it with 'Christian Island (Georgian Bay)'

Q282 .... three .... - X Lynn gets it with 'Biscuit City'

Q283 I'm only .... - X Oh,Linda! gets it with 'Affair On 8th Avenue'

Q284 She'll guide .... X Jenney gets it with 'Mother of a Miner's Child'

Q285 Heading .... X Joveski gets it with 'River of Light'

================================================== ========
All songs written by Gordon Lightfoot .

* -Note on Q281 that smilin', and smiling both appear as typed in the intended song; however, a song that shows (or sounds) either way will be accepted, out of fairness.

9 down, 1 to go.

Enjoy !

One away from a new set of ten !
