Who Are We?

Mission Complete – Thanks everyone!

I think John Mackie got the answer before Araminta. All these people recorded the song “Blowing in the Wind”.

I have chosen this version because it was the version that I bought at the time.

  1. Mornin’ Boadicea

    At first glance

    3 – Dolly Parton
    9 – Greta Garbo
    12 – Elvis, obviously
    13 – Stevie Wonder
    15 – Bob Dylan

    OZ

  2. Wow! You two are quick off the mark!

    So far – all right!

    They are indeed, Christopher – but that’s not the answer I’m looking for!

  3. Seems like Dietrich was a good call πŸ™‚

    #4 is bugging me. Wassername?….. Smokes cigarettes….., friend of Bogart?….

    OZ

  4. Amendment to my confusing #4…

    3. Dolly Parton – Christopher.
    9. Marlene Dietrich – Christopher.

    12. Elvis Presley – OZ
    13. Stevie Wonder – OZ
    15. Bob Dylan – OZ.

    They aren’t all singers!

    And not Lauren Bacall!

  5. Erm, Boadicea, Ma’am, you may wish to have a look at the caption of #13 and then delete this comment. πŸ™‚

    OZ

  6. 11 The Boss, one of my absolute favorite songs of all time, apologies for cluttering your comments but I simply just had to πŸ˜‰

  7. Boadicea, that song was 1986, I was single, living in Jhb, working for a proper company (I started my own in ’86) Hard to believe that it was 25 years ago!

  8. G’day Boadicea

    Not really here. Just logging in to thank Pseu for her advice re my condition.

    But, since I’m here anyway, #5 is Marianne Faithfull.

    Off for my early morning hobble to fitness before settling down to watch the Bokke play the Welsh.
    I have to take my exercise this morning because we are expecting the remnants of Hurricane Katia to arrive this afternoon and there would be gale force winds blowing whichever road I was walking down.

    Joan Baez’s was the best, in my opinion.

    I’ll be back full time in due time.

  9. Hi John – good to see you here, albeit temporarily!

    You are right about Marianne – and I suspect you have ‘The Answer’ to my question πŸ™‚

    Look forward to your return !

  10. Yes Araminta – Duke Ellington.

    You seem to be pretty good at getting my links – but I think John Mackie did get the answer first this time! I was tempted to include Peter, Paul and Mary, the Kingston Trio and the Seekers – but I thought that they might be too much of a clue.

    No OZ – not Glen Campbell!
    And No Janus – no German link

  11. Morning, Boadicea.

    Yes, I do seem to be quite good at spotting links. I could attribute this to sheer genius, or my encyclopaedic knowledge of the music and film industry, but this would be dreadfully inaccurate!

    The truth is I use all the various resources at my disposal, or in other words, I cheat! I do have the decency to allow others the opportunity to answer, and I certainly have no intention of revealing my devious methods, but I bet Bearsy, and a couple of others know. πŸ˜‰

    I shall refrain from answering your next, until the following day. πŸ™‚

  12. FEEG

    That’s Right!

    Araminta

    This is supposed to be fun – and I’ve never had a problem with people ‘researching’ the answer!

  13. I know, Boadicea, but I was feeling a tad guilty, I decided to ‘fess up.

    Actually, I was not being entirely serious, but I just had this feeling that I’d rather be a good “researcher” than a mine of useless information about subjects of which, in reality, I know little, but are useful for the odd fun quiz. πŸ™‚

  14. Peter

    It seems that no one else has either! I’m off to bed – if no one has got the name by tomorrow morning I’ll have to admit that I’m the only person who’s ever heard of the guy!

  15. Having noticed that Boadicea appears to have stumped the team with this one, I decided to do a little ‘research’ of my own.

    #14 is of course that very famous American rock singer, guitarist and composer who would you believe started his career with that famous American outfit The Golliwogs. Must be true Wiki says so πŸ˜‰

    He of course shot to fame with CCR, remember Proud Mary and Hey Tonight? The latter being a favorite during the speed sessions at my local ice rink back in the day.

    After writing all that I hope my ‘research’ proves correct, so I’ll venture John Fogarty

  16. Peter, Soutie and Boadicea.

    πŸ™‚

    Time spent in reconnaissance, sorry, “research”, is seldom wasted.

    Now where have I heard this before. πŸ™‚

  17. Sorry Boadicea. This is a bit of a tenuous cop-out if you ask me. In all likelihood all these people have at one time or another sang White Christmas or the Happy Birthday song. πŸ™‚

    I’m just peeved that even on his sick bed Mackie can beat me
