It's certainly a confusing game when the emojis appear differently, or not at all, on different devices. I proposed Stormy Weather based on a cloud with lightning. I guess the original offering contained something suggesting Fixing a Hole, but it was lost on my Galaxy phone and tablet  :-\  :-[  :)

Similarly, the Christmas tree was missing on my phone, hence my suggestion of Walk On By, which must have made no sense at all!  ;D

The problem was that I wanted a human figure, but all of the human figure emojis on the Windows 10 pop-up keyboard were either doing something or were in couples. You saw the walking figure, so "Walk on By" made a certain sense. I finally settled on just a face.

I switched out the Christmas tree for a less specific tree. I'll have to see if that worked on my phone, though I'm not using Android. (I could look at it on my Kindle Fire, which is an Android tablet.)

I can't post any emojis, because (a) my technology is hopelessly outdated (I can see maybe one out of every three emojis posted here, so it was a minor miracle that I was able to see all three of Chris's emojis--I still see nothing but boxes in place of emojis in Amy's last post) and (b) I don't know how, even if my technology were up to snuff. So, somebody, please, post one for me. Thank you in advance.

@Vera Charles hasn't commented yet, but I'm pretty sure you're right, @DiveMilw. This game is proving trickier than I expected because apparently emojis are implemented differently on different devices, but would anyone like to try another? Mairi's showed up just fine on both my Windows PC and my iPad.

I am SO sorry, completely forgot I'd posted this. Yes, @DiveMilw you're right.
@Chris L I posted the emojis from my iPad mini ... I can generally see all of the emojis posted in this game, just can't guess the lyric!!!

The iPad seems to be a good place to post emojis from. The ones you posted were sized differently on my PC than on my iPad, but they were still clear.
