I should continue in this spirit, I suppose. I'm now upping the prize for the encrypted lyrics I posted on page 1 of this thread. The prize will be a sleeve of the new GI2-S balls (colour of your choice), so that you can test them for me/us and report if the additional slow-down of the meter is significant. I'm perfectly happy with the Tour GI-SD balls I use currently, but if there's good feedback to the GI2-S balls, I might give them a try.
Now, as to the encrypted lyrics, a player posted on my Wall saying this might perhaps be Streets of London by Ralph McTell. To this I replied:
I'm sorry, but that isn't the song.
I'll give you a couple of clues: if the "encrypted" lyrics talk about London, then the original lyrics probably talk about a different city. And if the "encrypted" lyrics sound optimistic, then perhaps the original lyrics won't?
(This is a song by a famous British performer, with legions of fans here in Central Europe as well. Americans might not now him/her/them, but a British person very likely will.)
Another player sent me a PM saying this might be a Van Morrison song. I think that guess comes closer (in "spirit" if not in musical style), but it's not him. It's a British, rather than an Irish performer. Not main-stream by any means, but very famous as far as non-main-stream performers go.
If anyone would like to have a sleeve of the new the GI2-S balls, just try & guess the song title using the hints above.
