Excellent work Bern, don't know of many rappers, learn something new every day :D
Now Bill, lets have another guess at 5 (the chubby one :lol: )
Try Neneh Cherry - (cherry cherub cocktail) cherubs portrayed as chubby!!

Not her Shelagh. As I said to Ken, read the first part of the clue, there is a big hint there.

Bill, Is it possible that a tiger could be involved in this answer?
If so, lets try Chaka Khan..initially changing HER, SHE could become Shere Khan, this would certainly make her become chubby :D

Not her Shelagh, but I will give you another clue. 'Tiger' could have something to do with the answer. :)

Only tiger singer, that I know of...
Eartha Kitt..suppose if you change the initial, could get (Big) Bertha Kitt :D
A chubby if ever there was one :lol:

Hi Bee, neither of those. I was expecting you to come in on this one a while ago.
I have been calling this very famous singer by this name for years. Think of the 'tiger' clue as well as sounds like.

Could 5 be Shirley Bassey?

Swap initials and sounds like she becomes burly and she's from Tiger Bay.

Good one Bernie, had forgotten about Shirley :)

4. Wondering if this drink could be a cocktail :?
If so, the Beach Boys have a song, "Kokomo" (also the name of a liqueur)
Enough letters in sentence to form Beach Boys name..just a thought!!

She's the one Bernie. Every time I see her I automatically call her Burley Chassie instead of Shirley Bassey.

Well done

Come on folks, give it a 'whirl' and have another 'turn' at guessing the last one.

Go on then Bill, will go with original thought, Baccara, 'Yes Sir I Can Boogie'
drink - Bacardi - no shabby!
Also, band called Chic 'Everybody Dance' fits in with shabby, but no drink
involved!!
Where's Bernie when he's needed :lol:

Those last clues have me thinking of The Spinners and as 'got the' is an anagram of Ghetto so I'll tentatively go for Detroit Spinners (had a hit with Ghetto Child) - that said, it's all a bit tenuous so I'm not at all confident.

On the plus side, it did remind me of that fab soul song which I've just used as Today's Tune on Facebook :D

A group from the sixties called the Tornados - also a cocktail?
Not sure about shabby though!!

Hooray! That's the one Shelagh, though it's nothing to do with a cocktail.

A synonym of torn is 'shabby' and ados is a backward drink 'soda'.
So shabby drink back = torn + ados :) :)

The answers are always right there in the clues. You don't have to think of anything complicated or outside the box.
