Maybe a cloche of clover to garnish the ham... Especially appropriate if it was a free-range pig.

Oddly enough, it would be far easier to produce a clove hitch with clover than with cloves.

I've got it . The next quiz song is:

 A B side hit released in 1986 by an all girl band from the UK.  It was released several times as a dance mix. Producers had been  initially  against  recording it , but the band persisted in their desire to get it released . The song burned   as a global hit once again .

It was originally released by a non English speaking band  in 1970  and has been covered many times,  including as an instrumental.  It has appeared in movies, TV shows and ads. The song was used in the Brady Bunch movie.

  side note: [ until now I had always thought the original vocalist was a man- which lead to much shocking  confusion of the  title and chorus  in my mind,  as a younger listener]

Bananarama - Venus (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO)


Shocking Blue - Venus (Official Video)


'Shocking Blue' also released a song called 'Love Buzz' which was covered by 'Nirvana' and released as their first single.

I like the original Venus by Shocking Blue much better than the Bananarama version.  But how do you confuse the voice of Mariska Veres with that of a man?  That'd be one girly boy! 

Kind of reminds me of Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit"

She sings in the same register as a lot of boy bands and never mind, I see your point…

Unless they were much more advanced than I thought on gender issues back then  Grin  But I doubt it, as in the late 60s gender variance was nor in the radar yet. Only sex orientation issues had progress.

 Yes I am  Your Venus

  Hey  she had a husky voice  ! [ and  I never saw a video]

 I have a new appreciation for the song now.

 Didn't one of the   bananas marry  the WHAM guy  everyone thought  wasn't the straight one ?

That's why it reminded me of Jefferson Airplane, but still think Grace Slick has a deeper voice. I don't about Wham and Bananarama.  Some gay men marry heterosexually...

There are wonderful women singers with deep voices. Janis, Nina, Marlene , Nico, Marianne...

and hey  if people are happy together who are we to question -

A 2013 interview with Grace Slick:

Grace Slick Interview 5.18.13


And this earlier interview is even more interesting (1998).  Talks about many great people from the era. Towards the end of the video she judges herself and Mick Jagger harshly regarding her age and the way Jagger performed on stage in the late 1990s (oh, I hate it when people self-impose and impose limitations on others... life is too short as it is, do you have to shorten it psychologically even more?)

Keith Richards is really looking his age. I mean that literally - he's looked 70 since he was about 40. Tongue

Anyway, back to the topic. Your clue is, "Mnemonic of an uncovered vision."

Now that's cryptic!  Cool

[For those of you, like me, who need reminding: "A mnemonic (RpE: /nəˈmɒnɨk/, AmE: /nɛˈmɑːnɪk/ the first "m" is silent), or mnemonic device, is any learning technique that aids information retention. "

So I googled 'clear sight song'... and found a track that links to another thread in Off Topic: "'Clear Sight' is an original YOHIOloid."

But nothing that fits the whole clue. So far...

"Mnemonic of an uncovered vision."
Teaching? Learning? Revealing? Light?

Todd Rundgren - I Saw The Light?
B.J. THomas - Teach Me To See?

Clue is just a tad vague.

Sorry. There's a song and a band in there.

Supplemental hint: Think of a more colloquial wording of Sir Henry's definition.

Uh-oh.

"Mnemonic of an uncovered vision."

Somebody please help me here...

Did I introduce this clue? I can't find my post anywhere, if I did so. I think I might be able to remember what this was supposed to be, but if as I suspect it is in fact mine, I believe I posted it a while back when I was still having bouts of high fever - which means my memory is very spotty. Maybe I just think I came up with it; I was pretty spacey there when my temperature was up. Please advise.

Don't worry, your memory isn't playing up. No, it's a new one from me.
