It's a violation for one fencer passing the other on the fencing piste. Done twice by the same fencer, without a valid touch being made, loses a point.

So while waiting for the partially complete quiz of Pdurrant to be finished here is another to get people working on. The following is a list of partial lyrics from rock/pop songs. One point each correct song title and one point for the song artist. There is a bonus of 3 points for the first person that can identify the common link between all these songs and artists.

1) Strobe lights beam create dreams
walls move minds to do (San Francisco Nights by Eric Burdon & The Animals)

2) I've got no deeds to do,
No promises to keep. (The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy) Simon and Garfunkel)

3) Who's tripping down the streets of the city
Smilin' at everybody she sees (Windy by ?)


4) Everybody's dyin', everybody's tryin'
To feel more and feel more and feel more. (Combination of the Two by Big Brother and the Holding Company)


5) Knowing that it's hard to find
Stuff way back in her mind,
Winds up spending all of her time
Trying to memorize every line

6) Lord, look at me here,
I'm rooted like a tree here,
Got those sit-down, can't cry
Oh Lord, gonna die blues. (High Flying Bird by Jefferson Airplane)

7) Don't make me stop now
Please, please don't make me stop now (I've Been Loving You Too Long Otis Redding)

8) Paranoia strikes deep Into your life it will creep (For What It's Worth Buffalo Springfield)

9) I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth (Substitute The Who)

10) Judge decreed it, clerk he wrote it down
Give you this jail sentence you'll be Nashville bound (Viola Lee Blues by Grateful Dead)

11) am i happy or in misery?
whatever at is a girl put a spell on me (Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix)

12) Stopped in to a church I passed along the way Well
I got down on my knees and I pretend to pray (California Dreamin' The Mamas & the Papas)


Shayne Parkinson 7 points

Bilbo1967 2 points

Orlok 2 points

Stitchawl 4 points

Fbone 3 points

poohbear_nc 1 point

One song and artist and one artist missing. That and the connection.

The 15th is close enough. The first written evidence is in the 16th century, but it may well have first come into use a bit earlier.

The 19th is right! The Italian chess rules didn't include en passant until 1880!
