Revisiting Last Week's Clues
Fri., Oct. 12. 2018 12:24pm EDT

Congratulations to Glen Van Boxtel of Cahokia IL, who came the closest of all of our fans to finding all of the references in last week's song clues. He "only" got seven out of the eight references for J. Geils; however, he made up for it by not only finding all 10 of the Genesis references we intended but another one we didn't. :)

Let's take a look at the clues again:

SONG #1
In the beginning of the ballad of big Saul and little David, the Israelites were counting out time between Goliath's taunts, to which they had no reply at all. Yet after the ordeal was over, Saul wasn't happy the man who felled the giant got all the glory. He started taking it all too hard, and soon David was down and out, in hiding in the wilderness.

Genesis references

"In the Beginning"
"The Ballad of Big"
"Counting Out Time"
"No Replay at All"
"After the Ordeal"
"Happy the Man"
"Taking it All Too Hard"
"Down and Out"
"In Hiding"
"In the Wilderness"

Bonus Reference: "it" is also a song on the Genesis album, The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. Good eye, Glen!

SONG #2
Moses went to get God's laws in the usual place they met, but 40 days was too long for the Israelites to wait without things getting out of hand. Still, in his worst nightmares, Moses didn't expect to come back and find them giving it all up for a golden calf. It put a rage in the sage, and the ensuing wreckage included both calf and Commandments.

J. Geils references

"The Usual Place"
"Gettin' Out"
"Nightmares"
"Come Back"'
"Givin' it all Up"
"Rage in the Cage"
"Wreckage"

The only song Glen missed was "Wait"," the opening track on The J. Geils Band's debut album. Not too shabby!
