    A new thing.

    You set up a position on a chessboard and you have
    to guess the song that inspired it.
    Jut name the artist, make up the position and we have to guess it.
    (you can add a wee clue in the title if you want to).

    3 examples all from Bob Dylan.

    No1 is so easy.

    I'm enjoying this.

    (Yes I'm bored, the snow in Britain has brought everything to a halt
    so I'm sitting at work with absolutely nothing to do).

    What song is the Knight on h1 singing?

    I was about to say 'Queen Jane Approximately' because the queens pass by so fast...

    However, hitting 'reply and quote' shows certain hidden text messages, which tell me, I had the wrong guess.

    Which in turn now lets me hide from you my wrong guess...

    Edit: I am still fiddling around with the 'hidden' command...

    The song is sung by either of the white pieces.

    Good, but think it only fair if we gave the artist.
    I thought it might be HELP! by the Beatles
    or Rooks Around The Clock by Bill Hailey and The Comets.

    If you had said Steelers Wheel I think I would have got it.

    A famous song from 'West Side Story.'

    You can have loads of fun with this idea.

    A chess columist was given the job to report on a football match.
    All he produced was three diagrams.

    Who was playing. What was the result.

    Helen Shapiro? I only knew 'Walking Back to Happiness.'

    Good.

    What family band is this?
    One of their hits was "Midnight Train to Georgia".

    That is a happy female Knight on e6
