Townsperson cherguevarra is the chief instigator of “Mystery Date” posts on RTH, and I always enjoy playing, even if I can’t figure anything out. This is my first contribution to the category.
As it happens, my lousy car-iPod integration is simply set to play every song in alphabetical order by song title (which is kind of interesting, since it plays every recording of the same song back-to-back). Over a few months I am now into song titles starting with “S”, and a couple of days ago this song started playing. I couldn’t identify the song or artist, and when the song info popped up on the screen, I thought to myself, in Dana-Carvey-imitating-Johnny-Carson-voice, “I did not know that.”
I wonder if anyone else knows this one. If not, what clues do you hear that would narrow down the time, place, genre, sartorial leanings, or persons involved? Post your thoughts, and I’ll respond to such inquiries with vague hints and opaque references that may lead you closer to the solution.
Standard Mystery Date rules: If you know who it is, don’t spoil it for the rest. Anyone who knows it can play the “mockcarr option.” This option is for those of you who just can’t hold your tongue and must let everyone know just how in-the-know you are by calling it. So if you know who it is and want everyone else to know that you know, email Mr. Moderator at
