The Blurb

DIVINATION OF A THOUGHT-OF TUNE

Two sets of cards are shown. They resemble mini iPods and contain the titles of 100 popular songs. The spectator mentally chooses one of the songs. Then removes two cards that bear the title of the selected song. The performer can instantly name the thought-of song. A totally self-working mystery. Includes special cards and further presentational ideas for close-up, parlour and stage. We have even compiled a Spotify playlist so that you can play the mentally chosen song from your smart phone.

The "Jheff's Judgment" column below is a brief summary of a longer, more detailed version. For the longer and more in-depth version, and to get news and information about other mentalism products, please visit the Marketplace of the Mind Forum or subscribe to the free newsletter.

Jheff's Guide

WHAT IT IS:
Effect with Props

HOW ACCURATE OR COMPLETE THE BLURB IS:
The description sort of describes how the effect plays.  Each set of cards has ten songs on each card.  The participant freely chooses a song title on one card and then finds the card in other set that contains the song title.  If you recognize this old principle, then, yeah, I’m sure you’re right.

SUITABLE VENUES:
Close-up, Walkaround

JHEFF’S JUDGMENT:
The premise of this is very old (I’m sure you know exactly how this works) and has been used with lists of places, food, celebrities, and animals, for example.  There is absolutely nothing new here and, with the added issue of having some unforgivable editing errors (“It’s A Small World After All” should simply be “It’s a Small World,” for example) I just can’t recommend this to any level of performer.
