Vizic Puzzlers

I know...all my readers are geniuses. So let's test you out over the next few weeks (which really means only a couple of posts given my lax attitude on posting).

Music is an expression of sound. But can it work visually? Let's test it out. I've translated a familiar song lyric into a visual. I call it a Visic. In making them, I didn't bother to use the word "the" in any of them so that is implied. Also, some words may only sound similar. Still, if you are one of my genius readers, you'll catch on.

So...can you guess the lyric or song?



Too hard?  Try this one...


Too easy?  Let's try another...


I know, you're just too good.  How about this one?


Careful, they're getting a little harder...


You think you're SOOO SUPERIOR, don't you? Well, take on the one the gnomes came up with



So...let's see how visionary you really are!

Not a clue - but perhaps they're not my kind of songs? Hehehe!

Kurt said...

The last one is "Puzzle I love, R bubble bury lady."

Peggy said...

2. I Heard It Through The Grapevine
3. she's buying a... Stairway To Heaven
4. come on baby... Light My Fire

Still working on 5 & 6....

Subby said...

#5 "Listen, do you want to know a secret"...

minus the "doo-wah-doo" of course...!

Subby said...

#6 "cross my fingers..." ah...sh--! The gnomes are brutal...!

Subby said...

You spelled "making" wrong...so there! :P

Roy said...

This is what I get for getting to this so late; everybody else has gotten the answers. And like Subby, I've only gotten "cross my fingers" from the last one.

ReformingGeek said...

Wow. Give the gnomes a treat or at least clean the bird poop off of them.

Those were good, VE.

Still stumped on #6.

VE said...

The gnomes are laughing...no one is even close on #6 so they're going to give you the musical genre: folk

VE said...

jinksy - You must like Yiddish rap...

kurt - That is absolutely correct on the planet Glurv...

peggy - Nice one...and you were doing so well...what happened?

subby - You pulled out #5, well done!

roy - Ha. You're not supposed to look at the comments until you get them all...

reforminggeek - It's a bit more of a stretch...

ve - What the hell are you doing giving them a clue?

Peggy said...

VE...what happened to me? Brain cramp. OOOOOOOHHHHH!
#6 - The answer my friend is BLOWIN' IN THE WIND!

Quirkyloon said...

Yikes!

I did get #3 and #4, but boy howdy I am stump-ed!!!!

Don't those gnomes have kinder and gentler things to do? Like cleaning my house or car?

hee hee

Great idea VE!

00dozo said...

Now this was something completely different. Fun too!

VE said...

peggy - The gnomes have given you a thumbs up...you're ok in their book! That's a big honor, you realize...

quirkyloon - Trust me, you wouldn't want the gnomes even near your car...

00dozo - I'm all about different...

Subby said...

Damn! Peggy's good! I see it now ;)

And a thumbs up from the gnomes, to boot?

Peggy said...

VE....Please tell the gnomes that I am indeed highly honored with their thumbs up.

Subby....Thanks to you too.

sybil law said...

Okay - everyone got here before me, but the last one - The answer my friend, is blowing in the wind"! Yah! Take that, gnomey fuckers!
Uh, unless I'm wrong. :)

Elizabeth said...

Wow, I'm really bad at this! I didn't even get one! Not even close!

VE said...

subby - It's rare to get a thumbs up from the gnomes...unless their aiming the thumb for somthing specific...doh!

peggy - You earned it

sybil law - Very nice. The gnomes have already given away a formal "thumbs up" to Peggy so I'm afraid you're going to have to suffice with their autographed naked holiday photo...

elizabeth - We've concocted a different kind of challenge next time so perhaps you'll be better at it. And just because the gnomes are now snickering in the background don't be discouraged...

Subby said...

@Peggy, aw shucks! 'Tweren't nothin' ;)

VE, lets see what the gnomes can come up with next time....muwahahahaaa!

Megan said...

I got stuck on the first one and I'm going to go have a drink before I try any of the others.

Anne said...

Bunk Strutts said...

Since the actual question was, "So...can you guess the lyric or song?" my answer is a resounding "YES."

Jaime said...

i got come on baby light my fire. but i can't figure out what the rest of them are.

secret agent woman said...

I'm not so visual, I guess. The Doors song I got instantly, but the sad truth is that I'm supremely lazy when it comes to puzzles.

Mrsupole said...

I suck at this game. Only got the Doors, probably because it had the baby in it, being as I am spending all my time watching the grandbabies right now. My brain is only thinking of goo goo and gah gah right now anyway. That is the best music for my ears.

God bless.

Hey VE,

Not sure if you remember me but I used to write a blog that you seemed to enjoy. Due to how busy my schedule is, I'm unable to keep the blog going. However I have (finally) signed up for Twitter so you can find small slices of Sully wisdom from time to time on there. My tag is @ThatSullyGuy
