I agree. Correct definition. I wasn't saying Egroeg's name is a palindrome, or that "sdrawkcab" (my pun on her signature) is, just that they were clues to spotting a song made up of palindromes from its title onwards.

 

Oh. I didn't even notice how they might be clues! Sometimes I'm really slow. :D

Isn't it weird how the word they came up with for palindromes isn't one?

Yeah, it really is. Once, my friend and I made up a word for palindrome that was a palindrome, but I forget what it was...

Palindrome comes from two Greek words:  palin = again, drome = run through

There's at least one other word using "palin" -- palingenesis -- being born again (i.e., reincarnation).

Our new king has 3 daughters, so we'll have a Queen again some day.

 

Palindromes are fun.

1962 - 1970 Beatles round on Mastermind. All the long and winding questions were basically name the song or album except one which boiled down to who produced Instant Karma (not inside the time frame and not a Beatles question) and one which was what were the numbers on the Please Please Me single? Might as well ask me how many a's are both sides of it.

I couldn't see the video that egroeG embedded - youtubes are blocked here at work - but I've no doubt it's Weird Al's wondrous "Bob". I think it's so cool how he actually managed to find palindromes that actually RHYME! And kinda make 'sense' (in a 1965-66 Dylan-meaninglessness way). And sing it just like Bob, too - and "Bob" itself is a palindrome!

No i havent heard it yet but i can guaranteed another great song is about to be badly beaten to an inch of its life and ensure you have horrid flashbacks for months at such a butchering. One Direction are covering Blondies One Way Or Another. Save us all, please. Tho no doubt any criticism is forbidden because its for charity (Comic Relief)

To the tune of "Bingo:"

There was a man who played the drums

And Ringo was his name-o

R-I-N-G-O, R-I-N-G-O, R-I-N-G-O

Sorry for the double post.

I didn't think this needed its own thread, so I'm posting it here.

Patti Boyd- is it Patti or Pattie? I thought it was Patti, but in Anthology it's spelled Pattie. I'm confused.

Patricia Ann Boyd, often referred to during the 60s-80s as Patti, now refers to herself as Pattie. She does have an official website, and rather wonderful it is. http://www.pattieboyd.co.uk/

Dont get in the way of Edinburgh construction workers by leaving your car in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Hats off to them! If the driver was stupid enough to park in an area cordoned off for construction, serves their right. You gotta love the ingenuity of the workforce. Least the driver didn't come back to find themselves with the bill for a day's lost work.

I really hate stupid people. They shouldn't have made a ramp for the car to get out, if the guy's rude enough to park there, he should have to wait to get his car back.

The workers should have waited for the individual to return and slow clapped them as (s)he get in and drives off. Complete idiocy. Maybe there was nowhere else to park and the train was arriving any minute. Either that or some businessperson who normally parks there and wont be told what to do by some snotty worker and their bit of tape.

The Superbowl is on and after watching the last Quarter and enjoying it a lot wanted to watch it but got to be up at around 8 in the morning. Anyone know when the game itself will roughly finish as the bbc coverage is scheduled to end at 4am which is too late.

Edit: Forget it. Beyonce is due soon and im not sitting thru that.

Still here to witness an incredible touchdown followed by the power going out.

How much of Beyonce's performance is her actually singing?

I really need to go to bed.
