"off she flew to the Tangipaho
where a two-timing jaybird
met the divine Miss O."
And an example of an unusual and distinctive phrase is "Duz and Lux" from Across the Alley From the Alamo. Both the Mills Brothers and Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys had popular versions of this song in the late 1940's. Again, I wasn't sure what they were saying I thought they were saying Dozen lucks, but couldn't for the life of me make sense of that. Then I found out that "Duz" was a popular brand of laundry powder at one time, (I don't think they market that brand any more)and Lux, of course is still around. So the lines go:
"They thought that they could make some easy bucks
by washing their frijoles in Duz and Lux,
a pair of very conscientious clucks
to the people passing by."
So, the idea is to post an unusual word or short phrase that should suggest a particular song. Most of us in this forum who participate in the games seem to be have roughly the same musical knowledge, so we should all have an equal chance. Then it will be up to the other forum members to guess the title of the song, and maybe even quote a line or two from the song where that word or phrase occurs, and then when that person comes up with the correct answer it will be their turn to post a new challenge. I hope people will like this game and will keep it going.
So I will get the ball rolling with the first challenge: the word is "bouillabaisse" and if anyone needs a clue: it's quite a well known song that has been recorded many times and was an Oscar winner.
