Thanks dartha nd mark for picking up the tune where I left off I am glad you enjoyed this. It is only a slight twist on the classic "in" rebus style so I am glad it got accepted. Glad you are enjoying it.

just looking at the puzzle you can almost see the answer hidden in it... and the title gives it away but we need an easier one on a monday morning! Thanks....

Good one tamjp... I knew what it was right off the bat because when I was little, I used to get on my sisters nerves by singing the first part of it all the time

THAT'S A GOOD ONE BUT I THINK "STOP" SHOULD HAVE BEEN CAPITALIZED. GREAT ONE THOUGH!

Thank you for all the comments, even the nuetral or negative ones.
Karma, thanks for the singing! I hope this teaser gets that song stuck in everyones head
wolfy, I love it when teaser answers just"pop right out" at me!
MTK, It would have been Way to easy if STOP was capitalized Don't you agree?

Jun 27, 2008

I got this one easily as well. Although technically the answer would be, "stop in name of love" (notice no "the"), it was still good and I enjoyed it. Great song, too!
jennsingergirlAus*
Jun 27, 2008

Thanks.... I have that song stuck in my head now.... =P
SweetPotatoAus*
Jun 27, 2008

Cle-ver! Again, I didn't think it through ... I got the "Name of Love" but discarded the letters that I pulled out to get that.
Anyway ... good one! Thanks for posting.

Great teaser! I loved it, and it brought a big smile to my face.

Stop! In the name of love
Before you break my heart

Baby, baby
I'm aware of where you go
Each time you leave my door
I watch you walk down the street
Knowing your other love you'll meet
But this time before you run to her
Leaving me alone and hurt...
Think it over, after I've been good to you
Think it over, after I've been sweet to you"
I'd go on...but you get the picture...

holy cow this is a blast from the past. I made this teasera few years ago! Glad to see that it was pulled out of the mothballs!

I am very glad that you enjoyed it. It was simple and fun. Not as thoughtful as some of my other teasers but..fun i guess!

Thanks for the positive comments!

Fun teaser. Love that song. I thought it was "haven't" I been good to you.

Rebuses are not my favorite type of teaser, but I got this one. The title "Halt" was a big hint! Would love a really challenging teaser! Hello to KiPA.

I know nothing about Motown, so did not even try! Did not care for this one, but thanks for posting anyhow.

Great rebus of the "classical" word-in-word style. I gave it top vote.

Also ... there were 44 comments when this was first posted (as new) in 2005.

Current NEW Rebuses get one or two ... sometimes ZERO comments.

Also .... current viewership; 373 (at 2.27 USA-CST)

hey ... jaycr ....

Well ... looks like I'm still here, so - perhaps with my 'last breath' you will allow me one more dig (just for old times' sake)?

"If you truly care about Briangle's future, you may want to abide by the rules set forth by the creator of this site." .. (quoting you of yesterday) ..

I find the juxtaposition (LIU) of your quote and my mention yesterday of Dad's best rebus (the "Titanic" one) rather ironic.

Chief Engineer James Bell (Titanic) is supposed to have said to Bruce Ismay (owner-operator of White Star lines) ...

"Is it not a good idea to go full head through these ice fields on a dark night with no moon?" ....

Ismay's reply (also possibly apocryphal (LIU)) ...

"Don't worry ... she's unsinkable, remember?"

The "unsinkable" notion was never "official" (never having been used by White Star) ... but was beginning to "catch on" after the voyage began.

Actual or not, it makes a good comparison ... no?

You people are busy, busy ... just re-arranging deckchairs.

I AM from Motown - loved it here back in the 50's and 60's. Fun puzzle - thanks for posting!

I'm with you Gayle, love this song and all of the old 50's rock and roll. Let's hear it for us old timers, we had great sounds back then.
