As usual, name the song, singer, and the link between them (both for each group, and overall). No google etc.


1)We are the Desperate Dan Appreciation Society
2)Strangled by the wishes of pater, hoping for the arm of mater

3)And ere their limbs grew stiff and cold, Their hearts' blood dyed its ev'ry fold
4)I swam across, I jumped across for you
5)Little girl from Sweden dreams of silver screen quotation

6)And I find, Just one thing makes me forget
7)I’m going to Wichita, Far from this opera for ever more
8)Racing ‘cross the desert, at a hundred miles an hour

9)My Love will laugh with me before the morning comes
10)Victoria’s Secret? Well their stuff’s real nice
11)Every time, just like the last, on her ship, tied to her mast

12)Hey little sister, what have you done?
13)Nine years probation, Eight table dancers

14)Cos I had nothing to live for, Looks like nothin’s gonna come my way
15)My shadow’s the only one that walks before me

16)So much for all your highbrow Marxist ways
17)Laughing like children, living like lovers
18)Or the highlights in your head that catch your eye. I have been blind

And I can even do what the swedish translator of the Keith Richards autobiography couldn,t
recognize "the red flag" and provide the swedish lyrics..
Number 3. The red flag.

Så låt oss höja vårt standar
Vi vigt vårt liv till dess försvar,
trots feghet och föräderi,
vår röda fana följa vi

If so then I think 9, 10 and 11 are Jamaica - Black, Green and Gold.

They are indeed flags, but it's not Jamaica ;)

1. We Are The Village Green Appreciation Society - The Kinks

2. Holding Back The Years - Simply Red

4. Yellow - Coldplay

6. Red, Red Wine - Bob Marley or UB40, depending on your choice.

The rest I can identify have already been named. The link is something to do with colours, obviously.

Colours isn't specific enough, I'm afraid.

18) The Lady in Red, Chris deBurgh

EU flags?

Flag 1 - Portugal
Flag 2 - Spain
Flag 4 - Belgium or Germany, thus implying that song 10 is 'red'
Flag 5 - Poland, thus implying that song 13 is 'red'
Flag 6 - Possibly Denmark or Austria, thus implying that song 15 is 'white'

I'll commit to Germany because it's horizontal. Which might make 6 Malta (red-white) and 7 Slovakia (white-blue-red)
