    5-way mashup (see spoiler for definition). I'll provide the 5 artists (in order) and you have to provide the 5 connecting songs.
    Definition:
    Mashup: MA` sh * up: (n)
    The would-be song if two artists mashed their titles together
    Example:
    Artist: George Gerswin and Elvis =
    Song: I can't give you anything but LOVE Me tender

    1. Norah Jones
    2. Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers
    3. The Beatles
    4. Captain & Tennille
    5. The Rolling Stones


  • deckerpdeckerp Member Posts: 4,014 Member Member Posts: 4,014 Member
    1. Norah Jones -- Don't Know Why
    2. Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers -- Why Do Fools Fall In Love
    3. The Beatles -- Love Me Do
    4. Captain & Tennille -- Do That To Me One More Time
    5. The Rolling Stones -- Time Is On My Side

    I started with the Captain & Tennille and guessed right. I could fill in The Rolling Stones and The Beatles fairly easily. Frankie Lymon and Norah Jones took some investigation, but I should have been able to figure out Frankie Lymon without.

    All I can come up with is:

    Juice? + Newton + ?? = something to do with magic
  • deckerpdeckerp Member Posts: 4,014 Member Member Posts: 4,014 Member
    Newton and Magic are correct. This singer is from Australia.

    Any more clues would be super obvious I think (easy to say from this end).

    @Analog_Kid That's what I was looking for. From the movie Xanadu.

    Can you give us a new problem to work on?

    Wrong, so far.
  • deckerpdeckerp Member Posts: 4,014 Member Member Posts: 4,014 Member
    Well gosh. Maybe I'll just throw out a bunch of guesses and you can say if one is right?

    1. Pink Floyd - Money or The Wall
    2. Def Leppard - Pyromania
    3. Eric Burdon - War
    4. Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem - ?
    5. Bob Dylan - Lay Lady Lay

    All wild, random, unrelated guesses.
  • snookeroosnookeroo Member Posts: 1,746 Member Member Posts: 1,746 Member
    Sorry, no. (But your first guesses were good...but wrong).

    I can't think of a clue I could give that wouldn't give it away. But, if you can get the drummer for The Electric Mayhem, then, problem solved.
