I''m just sending out a shameless plug for the first joint collaboration of Didb72 [Didier][ and me.
It's called RockPiles . Basically, it's a puzzle involving well known rock music artists and the phrase will include a few of their popular song titles in the answer. The clues will provide the specific details you'll need to know.

Thanks to Sploofernatural for editing support. Google away as needed. Peppermint patties are helpful too
Have fun. Don't fall asleep Felix or Megadict!

Didier and I thank everyone for their posts and we are very pleased that a lot of players solved the puzzle today.
Very impressive scores. You guys "rocked".
Perhaps a "part deux" may be forthcoming.

Here are the ten clues/phrases that were used tonight.

It's been noticed by , at least one astute puzzle aficionado, that the clue for the Led Zeppelin phrase doesn't seem correct.

********she felt dazed and confused after taking the stairway to heaven ("3 Led Zeppelin titles")

Dazed and Confused and Stairway to Heaven are stand-outs, of course.
However, they had a lesser known song called "She Felt" . [ wasn't really a hit]

Okay- that's crap.

It was one of Didier's clues. I sent it in to the editor as THREE titles instead of the correct TWO. What was I thinking?

My bad!
That's why I'm not editor material.

Sorry if that goof cost any one real anguish.
To the woodshed Al !

Fantastic fun...especially the CCR which actually sounded like a real sentence! Only trouble was it was hard to do it quickly while humming. Oh please, can we have another?
