Jules - speaking of Queen, did you see the musical “We will rock you” done to their music? I went with my daughter and we both loved it - if we could have walked back in and seen again we would have! I have tried for ages to see if there was ever a DVD made of that show but have never been able to find one

I went to a EmmyLou Harris concert many years ago, also saw her when she opened for Willie Nelson at his concert, she is very talented, I have some of her music.

Trav3lbird, no, we didn't see 'We will rock you', but it was on here. I am not a huge fan of musicals that portray artists, I did see the musical here about the Four Seasons (can't recal the name of the show off the top of my head), but everyone else raved about it and I thought it was a big disappointment, would rather have gone to a tribute night or their concert and listened to the music not just snippets of it. They would just get a song going and cut it off to act a bit. I was bored. At the moment here in Melbourne, Beautiful, the Carole King musical is on, and same thing, everyone is raving and I absolutely LOVE her and listen to her songs all the time, both by her and other artists, but I am not going to go to the musical. My absolute favourite of hers is 'you've got a friend' closely followed by 'Pleasant Valley Sunday' and I prefer her singing it to the Monkees version, although they were great too.

And yes, EmmyLou is one very VERY talented lady. She has a beautiful voice.

I bet your parents said exactly the same about their era. I know mine said the same about the 60s. "Long haired freaks making a tuneless racket" is one comment I remember hearing on a regular basis.

I don't remember my parents ever condemning music of my choice at all, they were pretty easy going and we were all into music, also played instruments as well. But I know loads of parents could not stand 'modern' stuff. There was a generation that thought Elvis was too shocking to be shown on tv and should not be allowed, but gosh, I wonder what those people would have made of some of the artists of this day and age, it would be interesting to see what they would think of it now as there is a lot of not just crap, but filth etc as well and totally unecessary. Its not particularly clever either to have to resort to that sort of stuff.

That's great to see that we have the same music culture. I like also Fleetwood Mac, EmmyLou Harris, Queen, Mark Knopfler and also Dire Straits Bob Dylan .....

Music of the 60s and 70s is my favorite one....

Jules, the Queen musical didn’t portray the artists at all but used their music to make a story in the future about music and musical instruments being banned and it was hilarious and extremely clever. We have a big collection of music from the 50’s on. I remember being given some money for my 14th birthday and buying the single of that song “Velvet Waters” - right now can’t recall the artists. It I still have it at home- and a stereo which will play it!

Been following the discussion on music from our younger days, got me remembering a couple from the late '60s when I went through my psychedelic rock phase (I had to much to dream last night) by the Electric Prunes and "Time won't let Me" by the Outsiders. And Jules we have the exact same top two all time favorite albums: Fleetwood Mac- Rumours and Neil Diamonds- Hot August Nights, my number three was also responsible for my getting hooked on Classical music, The Moody Blues- Days of Future Passed. Oh, and that Four Seasons musical was called "Jersey Boys"!

Been away for the weekend and was pretty busy today so just looking in on the "Forum Hot Topics". Music is always a wonderful topic and generates much conversation and memories. Not necessarily all 60's and/or 70's music but off the top of my head some of my favorite artists, albums and songs are Paul Simon: Graceland, pretty much anything by Queen, Meatloaf: Bat Out of Hell, Fleetwood Mac: Rumours, pretty much anything by Bob Seger and Steve Earle: Copperhead Road. Got a few song lyrics running through my head now.

Sing...sing a song....la la la la la la

Best regards

I didn't mention Meatloaf, as I thought he might be a bit hard rock for some, but he is in my top 3. I LOVE Bat out of hell, play it all the time, sing every word at the top of my lungs and if I want to get everyone out of the house and do things with loud music blasting around, I play that at full volume on my big stereo, if they aren't out of the house by the time that album is done, I put on Cold Chisel, another top favourite. Then I will continue with the rock music, although my daughter also loves Queen, so she will hang around for that. Also love the Rocky Horror music too, thats another good sing along one. Gosh, so many wonderful memories from music. I also love Simon and Garfunkel, as well as Paul Simon on his own. Some of you may like to also google or youtube a newer Australian group called 'All our exes live in Texas'. I came across them on an ABC story, looked them up, went out and bought the album the next day they impressed me so much. I then went to a gig they played at here, they are sensational. Cross between folk, indie and country pop music, very catchy songs, particularly the song Boundary Road. Look it up.

Hey Jules,

I like quite a few hard rock bands actually and soft rock and medium rock.....LOL I do like Van Halen and the Eagles as well. I have probably seen "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" at least a half dozen times. It never disappoints. Also, I remember being at a house party quite a few years back and heard a few of Cold Chisel's songs because our host was a big fan. I could not remember the song titles of the ones I liked so I just visited youtube and found my three favorites. I loved "When the War is Over", "Bow River" and "Good Bye" It wasn't a band I listened to often but I do remember those songs in particular. Thanks for jogging my memory. I also checked out the all ladies band "All our exes live in Texas". I only listened to two songs, "All our exes live in Texas" and "Boundary Road" but in my opinion these ladies are very talented so I will probably check them out a little more. I do like all genres of music especially catchy fun lyrics and lyrics with a deeper meaning.

Best regards
Glitter

if you youtube the songs of cold chisel, or just Jimmy Barnes (Aussie rock legend, although he was born in Scotland, we adopted him and he is a national living treasure) 'Khe Sanh' has become almost an Aussie anthem, its about the Vietnam war and is brilliant, then listen to Working class man, Flame trees, No second prize, and my favourite, Ride the night away. Sensational rock music and timeless.

The Eagles of course, legends. There isn't a song called all our exes live in Texas, it must have the wrong title on the youtube thing, so check that again, but do have a listen to all their stuff, they are EXCELLENT. The song Sailboat is particularly beautiful and haunting.

Hi Jules,
I just checked on youtube again and found them singing this song. They made a joke about there is a song called "All my exes live in Texas" and said but forget that one we made up our own called "All our exes live in Texas: and then started to sing this hilarious song. The chorus goes as such:

"All our exes live in Texas all our lovers live in Maine. We tried so hard to keep them but they drove us all insane. Love to hug and kiss them till they can't stand it no more. We all get bored too easily and we kick them out the door."

Maybe google..... All Our Exes Live In Texas - All Our Exes LIve in Texas Live Hibernian House Sydney 5.4.13..... because that is where I found it. Maybe it was just a spoof they did live and did not record it on an album but seriously it is out there and it is quite amusing.

Best regards

Hadn't seen that one, not on the album but I will look it up for sure. I am hanging out waiting for their second album to come out which they are working on. Just got back home again now so got a few things to do like cook dinner first. Got to work out what we are even going to have. I am not usually an organised person in this regard and dinner can be a real hodge podge sometimes. Or as my mother used to say, when I would ask what was for dinner, she would say 'pigs bum, gooley gum and caterpillar sauce', please don't take offence at the pigs rear end bit, but thats all just a saying and usually meant she too had no idea as yet.

Two questions please. When one does tier 2 or 3 and it asks if you want to double or triple the score what actually doubles or triples? Is it the amount of bricks etc? Second question: when one has a choice of which colour to match, are the different colours worth different amounts? For example do 3 pinks get a higher score than 3 bricks?Sometimes with only a couple of moves left I am not sure which ones to play to reach my target. Hope someone out there can help. Many thanks in anticipppattion!! Had to throw in a bit of Rocky Horror!

Ha Froggieloveyou, like your style, that was good that rocky bit. I am not aware of various colours of gummies being worth different amounts for the same types of matches, ie: straight up match 3 of one or another, but I do know, that matches that make bombs, or line crushes for example are worth more as it uses more gummies for the match, in that a 3 is just 3, but a line crush is 4, and so on. Then, when you hit a line crush or other with a and it creates destruction, thats obviously worth a HEAP, depending on how much destruction it does make. The more cascading gummies the better and the more it adds up.

As for the first question you had, about the double and triple score for tier 2 and 3, its a straight up doubling or tripling of the same scores that the various moves get anyway. Hope all that helps. Please ask more if you are still not sure.

One of the mods said in another thread that you get more points for resource tiles than normal ones, and more for resource tiles that go toward a goal than otherwise. If that helps.

Everest is back. Not too hard. Second flag takes either luck or using a shovel at the start. Fourth not sure if it’s luck or skill needed. Fifth there’s an easy strategy for determining a good starting board which helped a lot.

Everest was good for me until part way through level 5 when I struggled to get any more bombs when still needing 3. I had to pay out for more moves to complete. Worth it though for 2 hours free play as I killed off a few levels from previous cities and built up my stock of green gems.

Everest level 3. I don't have a clue on how to get anything other than a match 3. Can't make a single move to break the stamps. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
