Punorama - results
It's time for the Punorama results.
As ever, we gave you a story and you sent us punning headlines.
This week's story was news that the Beatles could be set to storm up the charts again when their songs become available online.
A decades-old dispute - with computer firm Apple, over the Fab Four's apple logo - had meant pop pickers could not download the band's songs legally.
But the two camps have reached a deal, heralding the Beatles' launch on iTunes and a return to the Top 40.
Hmm, who’d have thought that so many of you would take song titles for inspiration…
There’s the psychedelic Lucy in iTunes with downloads (Kevin of Glasgow) and Lucy in the hi-fi with iTunes (Nigel Macarthur, who also sent in Hey, Tunes…)
Then there’s Niall Nugent’s I wanna download your band, Gareth Jones’ Let it B-side and Murray Milne’s It’s been a hard decades’ fight.
Nicely done is Lovely data, media-played by Helene Parry. And fellow Monitor regular Candace is on fire, contributing An Apple delay kept the Fab Four away, Pomme Together AND, best of the bunch, When I’m 64(MB).
As if to prove that great minds think alike (or is it weak minds never differ?), fellow regular Simon Rooke contributes When I’m 64 bit (as does Grollope).
Simon’s on firmer ground with Back in the USB bar, derived from the song which inspired Andrea K to contribute Back in the UK pop charts, which we also liked.
For achievement without recourse to Beatles’ song titles, let's hear it for William Dewe contributes Don't upset the Apple Mac-Cartney; Offshore Alan weighs in with Download Re-peel for Apple; David Gorton with The apple of your i-pod; Phil’s Repeatlemania; and, last but not least, Pomme my soul by Kip.
