Your quatloos are as free play in the gaming arena on Triskelion. Ask for the head Gamester.

The first one, which no one will get, is "26 Miles to Joliet", by Darlene Wallace. I never heard this until about a year ago, it kicks. It is on Hi Records: the Early Years; you can hear a clip here; go down to track #22 and click the little speaker.

Here's another one. The house kindly requests Croupier to stay out ;) (oh, this is a hint)

"The Wise Men were consulted/and the bridge of death was crossed"

Easy bonus, unrelated:

"If she's the same how come she's diferent now?"

Just until you swear to stop counting notes :P

But you can go for the bonus. You're allowed the sucker bets, why not.

Very good.

Now what movie was the song in? (as though that's a tough question).

I'll hold back and see if anyone else comes up with the answer. I seem to have Hijacked this thread, for which I apologise.

Here are the answers to the two nobody got.

"Take off your shoes, stay out of the race"

This one is an old Irish ballad titled Sonny or sometimes Sonny's Dream. Various country and folk music sings have covered it. Sometimes the word "sneakers" is used instead of "shoes," I hope that didn't trip anybody up. I'm most familiar with the cover by Emmylou Harris, Mary Black, and Dolores Keane. Here are the full lyrics.

"I am someone you'll never know"

Little Neutrino by Klaatu. This was one of my favorite bands in college. I've yet to meet anybody who has heard of them, except the guy who turned me onto them.

ME!

I've heard of them, but that's as far as it goes. I can't say that I ever knowingly heard their music.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

Yeah! I've never heard their music played by anybody except me. Even when I visit Toronto, their hometown, I can't find anybody who has heard of them.
