Go! Include Grooveshark/Youtube links if you want to. Smile Three songs, deadline is next Tuesday. I'm sure that seven-thousand-odd of you can figure this one out. Smile

Okay, I'm going to risk the QI sirens, and starting off with minus ten, because this feels like a trap, but...

Human, by the Killers. Surely. This one has made me think of this potential story since I first heard it.

* raises hand *

Question Mr. Joe,

Can you kindly put a snippet of text here to help inspire us? I joined the Island just as the first Stranger Plot took off...so it's been awhile...and I'm STILL not entirely sure I understand the idea of the Dancer (I have vague ideas, but nothing concrete?).

I realize that might be half the point, that you're working on it...but maybe just a little teaser of text to help inspire us? Or an idea of a new Mannequin in Stern's Museum?

That'd be super awesomepants.

Never mind I'm an idiot. To help others be less of an idiot I'm gonna repost the MOTD, which I read after I was able to delete my last silly post:

A contest!
Admin CavemanJoe 2012-05-15 08:28:04
A contest to make the whole Island flush with delicious Cookies!

In the story I posted last week - the in-game one that introduced the Dancer - there were veiled references to three songs. Only three, because I couldn't think of a way to shoehorn this silly happy nonsense in there.

Your job is to identify all three songs hidden in the Dancer intro! You have a week from today to get all three. If you manage it, everyone on the Island will get ten Cookies each, and you will all understand just how awful my taste in music truly is.

Put your guesses in here, and have fun!

-CMJ


There! Now only I look stupid. Also, I have no idea yet.

So, I happen to have a full copy of the text from the Dancer encounter. Is it already up on the Enquirer, or should I put it up here for people to glance through for the songs?

Thanks!

Isaac

It's too lengthy for the forum, but yes, it probably should be in the wiki.

And... okay, here's my archived copy: The Dancer, Part 1

Edit: I think this may well be one of the songs referenced.

Could this (Orion - See me Here) be another one of the referenced songs?

Ok, here's my first guess - Feeling so Real - Moby

Edit: Didn't notice people had already got there with two. What's the third?

Should we now closely check the contestant list for massively inflated player count?


There are two secrets to success. The second one is to never reveal all your secrets.

Ring Ding Diddle-Iddle Aye-De-Oh

So is that a cookie drop per reference, or were the other three it?

I read the Part 1 Count Sessine posted (as I am a noob on my first DK) and found a reference I knew right off.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoeeTJFzUG0

For those unfamiliar with the song, the reference is the segment from the Dancer is in the middle of the fourth page of Sessine's link.

"There was a song about a blue silk ribbon, tied into a bow, but you're not Scottish, so no."


and the timing in the video would be 1:40

Well, now I can get my 13.3 repeating cookies without the Ancient Greek God of Spoilers ("Bob") punching me in the staggering of content, so that's a plus. And I have horrible taste in music, too, so the stuff in this thread should entertain me for a while.

As someone who has more alts than fingers or toes (I have two fingers and 0.5 toes) , I promise not to use them for evil.
