You’re probably wondering how this shin-dig works, right? We’re going to lay out a sample for you below:
Step 1: Stacy announces Theme Park is going down. You should probably turn up your radio at this point.
Step 2: Stacy busts out two vintage 1950s turntables and puts a beautiful black circle of wax on each of them. On the left she’s got The Rolling Stone’s 1969 gem Let It Bleed and on the right she has Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Willy and the Poor Boys.
Step 3: For the Stones, Ms. Ireland cranks track one, “Gimmie Shelter” followed by “Fortunate Son” from John Fogerty and company.
Step 4: You think. You think harder. The first thing that comes to mind is that both tunes were released in 1969. But that’s not a very strong theme – definitely not one to sustain Stacy’s park. The year should give you a clue though — what was going on in 1969 that fueled both of these anthems? Bing! Vietnam!
Step 5: You call Stacy immediately, hoping to get through before the final chords of “Fortunate Son” ring out.
Step Six: Do you win? Might as well give it a shot!
