CLASSICAL MUSIC WP

Interesting mix; some gimmes, a couple where the clue might have been easier -- (and one where it might have been harder!)... but overall a lot of fun and one or two even raised a smile after I'd dialled out and my sense of humor was at a low ebb.

I suppose we get one Nascar for every classical music wp?
Still waiting for cricket though....

Bravo! Brought back some songs I hadn't thought of since my high school band days.

And do you REALLY want some NASCAR?

I see your Nascar, raise you a cricket, then re-raise again with snooker (hint to Bill). Seriously, I'll bail in a New York second on a Nascar, but that certainly doesn't mean many people would'nt enjoy it, Rev.

This was a fun puzzle to take. Even though there was a point that I just started pushing letters and it took
me 87 moves and I earned only 1900 points, I like to go ahead and finish a word puzzle once I start it. That's
part of the challenge and fun of these puzzles I think.

I didn't do that well either. Had nothing to do with the puzzle, more with my lack of of knowledge on the subject. So happy I got one with just a few letters up! Good job though, good clues as well.

Fun puzzle - well thought out.

Bring on the Nascar and the snooker

Hubby has a Ph.D. in music and specializes in classical. He still had a "gotcha" but enjoyed it very much. He says thanks.

I'm not a classical music person, but the ones I had were definitely do-able and quite a delight! I just loved the "Gone Wrongs"! Please do more of these, although I may have used up all of my classical music knowledge on the 5 I did today.

You people just keep on flappin' your faces and you'll have more NASCAR than you ever thought existed.

Don't think I'm kidding, either.

Loved it, Sploofusaurus, and not just because I enjoy classical music (and most music). I really enjoyed the way you had the music go wrong. It was a blast. I'm looking forward to posting my favorite phrases after the WP is over. Thanks a bunch!

OK, now that the puzzle is over, here were my clues/phrases:

Apologies to Mozart - the magic fruit
Poor relation? (sp.) - duck pond by tchaikovsky
Ooops! - unravels bolero
Russian classic - night on hairless mountain by mussorgsky
Tchaikovsky's new broom? - sweeping beauty

I thought they were all clever and funny, but my favorite is probably the "duck pond" pond. LOL. I also really liked "night on hairless mountain."

So, Ken, that tells you a bit about what you missed.

I got "In the Hall of the Mountain Dew" -- which, as a Dew-aholic, I did appreciate.

My favorite was Mozart's Magic Fruit. I laughed out loud.

That was a "classical gas" of a word puzzle.

I'm much smarter now in the field of classical music. One or two of my phrases were toughies to see the relevance to the clues-- but no tums were needed to finish with a decent score.

Oh, it just dawned on me about the "duck pond" phrase.

Well done.

I'm pretty good at music - but I guess my mind was not attuned on this -- duck pond I'm still clueless on -- but didn't do googling after to clue me in...

Hi Lorri,
Tchaikovsky wrote the ballet "Swan Lake." Get it now?
