The eleventh day of spring 26
The twelfth night of summer 74
The first night of autumn 80
The second day of winter 86

I have hidden 4 song titles in the sentences above. What are the song titles, and who sings them?

  • each line represents 1 song title
  • the songs are about something that have similarity with time (daylight, seasons, weeks, etc.)
  • the songs are sung by different people
  • every song and singer listed first if you google it
  • based on Wikipedia
  • I am a magician, perhaps by knowing this you can more easily resolve this puzzle.

    $\begingroup$ Are you looking for 4 song titles, or are the four lines hints for one single song title? $\endgroup$ – oerkelens Nov 20 '14 at 14:10

    $\begingroup$ Does the answer depend on your hemisphere? Seasons are opposite in the South. $\endgroup$ – Kenshin Nov 20 '14 at 14:54

    $\begingroup$ @Warlord099 the songs title doesn't contain winter nor any other seasons. $\endgroup$ – nyongrand Nov 20 '14 at 23:12

    $\begingroup$ Clearly you meant you're an illusionist, and the song is "The Final Countdown" by Europe. $\endgroup$ – Raystafarian Nov 21 '14 at 13:20

I assume this puzzle relates to tools used by magician.

the songs are about something that have similarity with time (daylight, seasons, weeks, etc.)

  • My best bet is a playing card
  • Playing card have 2 color (similar with day and night)
  • Have 4 suits (4 seasons in a year)
  • Have a total of 52 cards (the number of weeks in a year)

    using this fact, and this page sequence
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Playing_card#French_suits
    Hearts Diamonds Clovers Clubs Spades
    
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Season
    Winter Spring Summer Autumn
    
    Now we have:
    Day as Red, Night as Black
    Hearts Diamonds Clovers Clubs Spades AS Winter Spring Summer Autumn
    
    Search song title at google will bring all song in first result.
    
    The eleventh day of spring 26 ===> Song "Jack of Diamonds" by Blind Lemon Jefferson, 1926
    The twelfth night of summer 74 ==> Song "Queen of Clubs" by KC & The Sunshine Band, 1974
    The first night of autumn 80 ====> Song "Ace of spades" by Motörhead, 1980
    The second day of winter 86 =====> Song "Two of Hearts" by Stacey Q, 1986

    $\begingroup$ Wow. You and nyongrand seem to know complicated answers to each others questions. Or maybe you are the same person??? $\endgroup$ – Len Jan 29 '15 at 7:53
  • $\begingroup$ @Len After he solves my first puzzles, I hope my next puzzle solved by someone other than him, I registered in an Indonesian-language puzzles forum, where I frequently post my puzzles, maybe he was also listed there, or maybe he really is me :) $\endgroup$ – nyongrand Jan 29 '15 at 8:39

    $\begingroup$ @nyongrand You realize sock-puppets are not allowed on SE, right? Sock-puppets are when one person creates multiple accounts to give themselves reputation - if both of these accounts are you, then you should stop doing that. $\endgroup$ – mdc32 Jan 29 '15 at 17:38

    $\begingroup$ @Len Seems suspicious to me too. They've both answered questions by the other one only. Both accounts were created 2 months ago (I don't have an exact time, but still). $\endgroup$ – mdc32 Jan 30 '15 at 2:22

For The first night of autumn 80, I think it is Kokomo by John Phillips because it was released in 1988, after his 1980 conviction for drugs.
