This is my entry for mobile-friendly puzzles.


I am interested in eight single-words having a common theme. I wanted to create eight lists which map to those words. The mapping procedure is a secret.


List 1:

  • If She Knew What She Wants
  • Manic Monday
  • Walk Like an Egyptian
  • Walking Down Your Street

List 2:

  • Into the Mirror Black
  • Into the Mirror Live
  • Refuge Denied
  • The Year the Sun Died

List 3:

  • Avesnes-sur-Helpe
  • Cambrai
  • Douai
  • Valenciennes

List 4:

  • Arepo
  • Opera
  • Rotas
  • Sator

List 5:

  • Cut the Strings
  • Eve
  • Galvany Street
  • More!
  • Movements
  • The Sun & The Neon Light

List 6:

  • Day in Day Out
  • Paperfaces
  • Yesterday Went Too Soon

I missed preparing remaining two lists. Which two words map to those missing lists?

The missing two groups map to ...

... Interstellar and Oppenheimer.

The lists ...

... are complete sets of things with one item missing and they map to that missing item.

1. Following: Singles from the album Different light by the Bangles.
2. Inception: Sanctuary albums.
3. Dunkirk: Subprefectures of the département du Nord
4. Tenet: words of a famous acrostic word square.
5. Memento: Booka Shade albums.
6. Insomnia: singles of Feeder's Yesterday Went Too Soon album.

These are all ...

... single-word titles of Christopher Nolan films. The missing titles are Interstellar and the recent Oppenheimer. (The films of the Batman trilogy and The Prestige have titles of more than one word.)

I must confess that ...

... I solved it on a desktop computer. :)
