One December,
You are in the casino, but about a quarter of the cards are missing.
You see a blue bird fly past the window.
A person walks by you and you think like #TheDress.

I know this is definitely not a good poem, but each line represents a song from that composer. Find who the composer is.

Hint 1: All 4 are pop songs. The last line represents a song that she (yes, it's a she) sang but is not very famous.

Edit 2: For the previous edit, I accidentally put "changed a word", it's more like "added Hint 1".

Hint 3: All sentences are hidden by word play. This isn't a cryptogram. The phrase which hides the songs are in bold in the spoiler:

First line:

One December,

Second line:

You are in the casino, but about a quarter of the cards are missing.

Third line:

You see a blue bird fly past the window.

Fourth line:

A person walks by you and you think like #TheDress.

    $\begingroup$ Christina Perri turns out to be a song-writer as well and she does write her own songs. So both are applicable. $\endgroup$ – the4seasons Mar 20 '15 at 13:25

The answer seems to be

Christina Perri

The four songs are:

1. Something About December https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWJrUGjZwr4
2. ??? Jar Of Hearts ???
3. Bluebird https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vO5NLUOD8v8
4. Black and Blue https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zo3vX0EwAdA and

  • $\begingroup$ Yep. That's it. I thought that I could use the "Hearts" in "Jar of Hearts" as a suit of cards being "kept away". $\endgroup$ – the4seasons Mar 20 '15 at 13:26

Taylor Swift wrote "Back to December", talked about #thedress recently, wrote "Welcome to New York" (New York has tall buildings). I don't know about a quarter of the cards, though.

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry but er... no since all the lines are actually pop songs. But nice try! $\endgroup$ – the4seasons Mar 18 '15 at 14:10

My answer:

Demi Lovato

One December,

"Remember December"

a quarter of the cards are missing.

"Give Your Heart a Break" amongst many other songs with 'hearts'

You look out of the windows and see the tall buildings outside.

"Skyscraper"

A person walks by you and you think like #TheDress.

Not sure on this one, maybe "Neon Lights" (color of the dress based on lighting?)

  • $\begingroup$ When I read your answer, I realised something... one of the songs i set as a hint was not sung by her... sorry! I'll edit it quickly! $\endgroup$ – the4seasons Mar 18 '15 at 14:13
