mystery Monday (compliments of Yoko318): when the music stopped, he died. explain. (yes/no questions are encouraged)
Are you talking about that song "American Pie"?
The next song was by Justin Beiber and he shot himself.
that might do it.
His party spirit died
The party died
After 35 years driving a Mr. Softee truck, the man parked it, put a gun in his mouth, & pulled the trigger as the music stopped.
Firefly, what's up with the "I'll pay" option. Are mystery Mondays now pay-to-play?
Swype failed me.
Crushed by a jukebox. What a way to go.
I saw the answer, but I still think that it could be a drummer/signal musician durring the civil war deserting. music stops, officer shoots.
it very well could.
He was playing musical chairs, but when he went to sit, someone had turned his chair upside down and it killed him.
Bye bye miss American pie. Drove a Chevy to the levy but the levy was dry. Them good ol' boys drinking whiskey and wine singing this will be the day that I die!
Well at least I'm not the only one that thought of this song! I thought I was a complete idiot.
music stop = lost his beat = heart beat.
there's no wordplay here.
Buddy Holly was my first guess, but my second guess is that the music was his heart beat.
Was it for his job?
Was his job performance reliant on the music?
Listen to the song and top acting like fool.
I'd have said he's a solo musician. He just died, and the music of course stopped at the same moment.
The music stopped because of a power failure - which effectively pulled the plug on the medical equipment keeping him alive.
no. those things usually have some pretty good redundant circuits and power, anyway.
I saw the answer, but I thought of another guess anyway. He was cranking a Jack in the Box, and when the clown jumped out he had a heart attack.
I like it.
Why do we have to pay?
you got me.
He's Buddy Holly!
man, a few people have jumped on that. Never occurred to me.
Well, I'm from his hometown. The song American Pie just jumped into my head with the way the question is worded.
He's from my college town
He is a blindfolded tightrope walker in the circus, the music comes to a climax and then stops, so the tightrope walker thinks he is at the end of the rope and step to the side into a platform, but the music stopped early so the tightrope walker fell
if you know the answer, it's no fun.
Oh I'm so sorry I didn't know, what should I do in the future if I know the answer? Help other people figure it out without giving it away?
sure, if you like. our pm me, or just hold off a bit. sorry, I should've said something.
My first thought was the drummer boy on a battlefield.
But probably wrong. I am not good at these!
also clever. but no.
Too bad. I would have felt like a genius! :)
Did you see the answer revealed above? I wouldn't have gotten that one in 10 years!
lol... yeah and I would never have gotten it either!
he was deaf and it was a coincedince?
I really suck at these. The first thing I thought of was the song American Pie, about an artist who died in a plane crash while the music died.
clever. but that's not it.
Me too, I thought of Buddy Holly
See my answer above. I thought Buddy Holly/The day The Music Died as well.
you're good. that's really clever.
Was he an animal or a human
but humans are animals.
Was the song the "Knife Game and he bled to death because he was determined t finish the song?
no. but thanks for commenting. my wife follows you, and I've been meaning to, but I keep forgetting.
