What Song?

Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.

A man is sitting in a pub feeling rather poor. He sees the man next to him pull a wad of £50 notes out of his wallet.
He turns to the rich man and says to him,
"I have an amazing talent; I know almost every song that has ever existed."
The rich man laughs.
The poor man says, "I am willing to bet you all the money you have in your wallet that I can sing a genuine song with a lady's name of your choice in it."
The rich man laughs again and says, "OK, how about my daughter's name, Joanna Armstrong-Miller?"
The rich man goes home poor. The poor man goes home rich.

What song did he sing?

In my opinion, the mark of a good trick teaser is when you want to smack yourself for not knowing the answer when you see it and it seems so OBVIOUS, but you're totally stumped when you're thinking about it before hand...this fits that criteria. Good one

This is one of those "If I was in a different state of mine I would have been TOTALLY stumped," however, I was only partially stumped. The answer I came up with was "The Name Game" (y'know banana nana fo fanna fee fi fo fanna ANNA...or whatever), but I like yours better.

This reminded me of the old Taxi episode when Loui (the evil dispatcher) was remembering when he was a driver and he picked up this con-artist kid who kept using brain teasers to get money from him. Hilarious episode.

it was a good one but technically its wrong. if u read the actual wording the poor man went home poor and he rich man went home rich. the bet was for the money in his wallet and yet he pulled it out and was holding the wad in his hand. they actully bet for no money.

Wow... excellent riddle.. why didn't i think of that?? not bad
timilee*us*
Apr 21, 2005

This was cute
But i agree with the folks that point out that the money had been pulled out of the wallet.
If it said 'all the money in your hand...' then it would work better.
Plus the word 'genuine' is kinda' not the right word, because he could have sang any song and replaced the name or other lyrics with the girls name, or made up a song with her name in it. As long as there is any kind of melodic vocal, it is a genuine song. 'Popular' would have been a better word than 'genuine'.
And i can't imagine ANYONE would have taken a bet like this for so much money, maybe a couple of bucks, but not all the money they had, UNLESS...the rich man was REALLY drunk....then i guess none of these points would matter.
But if the poor guy is going to take advantage of a fellow in this drunken state, he could have just robbed him in the parking lot without having to sing a note.

...but i still found it entertaining.
Joanna Armstrong-Miller had a little lamb whose fleece was white as snow....

I agree w/ you Super....If the rich man pulled out 50 from his wallet, then what was left for the poor man to win?, (who mind you was "feeling" poor and not officially poor according the riddle.) Tim, you sure do put a lot of thought into these....too cute.

I thought of "We didn't start the fire" by Billy Joel cos it has so many names in it ! But the answer is in the simpllicity itself I guess !!!

Nice one!! good job. My guess was the "A B C " song from kindergarten, since it would have each letter of every name in it. (names spelled using only the 26 English letters, of course)

keep up the good work

Excellent. When I was at U.T. Austin, there was a Prof. Hill in the linguistics dept. whose claim to fame among grad students was that his 2 maiden aunts wrote "Happy Birthday" and he inherited the copyright! Made him rich, but he chose an academic career nonetheless.

With so many comments, may as well add one more. Don't know how many know the history of "Happy Birthday," but it was written by two maiden aunts of the last name Hill, who copyrighted it. When I was at the Univ. of Texas at Austin (years ago), there was a Prof. Hill in the Linguistics Dept. who was their nephew and heir, and he received worldwide royalties on "H.B." Rumor was this made him a rich man.
