I figured that we need a thread like this... Basically the rules are:

Take a song title, in this instance: Red Barchetta.
Then, come up with a literal translation/synonym: for example (easy one), 'scarlet Ferrari.'
Then, have the people guess what the song in question is.
Then, they will put up another one for the next person to guess and so on.


Please let me know if this already exists somewhere.

The Ladder that belongs to Jacob...just kidding!


How about....the metal coverings formerly worn by soldiers or warriors to protect the body in battle and a weapon with a long metal blade and a hilt with a hand guard, used for thrusting or striking and now typically worn as part of ceremonial dress.
