"Episode 1.4" - July 19|
"Ooh, your love's for real, now,
You know that your love is my
love, our love is your love,
_______ ____ __ _____ __ _____..."
Come on, it's easy. "Don't Forget
The Lyrics" provides you to fill in the blanks for all your
lyrical needs. Last time, Luke Adams' mind thought that "our
love is here to stay," (answer to the example) but he's stuck
with a $100K song and he's got 9 words and one backup left as
we pick it back up.
The song he sang before we went
off the air was lean on me, and the line before the next one
he can fill was "For no one can fill...." His response as we
start the game: Those of your needs, that you won't let show.
But he's showing his last backup to make sure. Here are his
A. What you might need, That you
don't let show
B. those of your needs, That you
don't let show
C. those of your needs, if you
don't let go
Luke's choice: B.
Give him the money, because he's..............RIGHT! That's
Now the next one for $200,000:
Pop. He's got 2 big ones to sing here:
- American Pie-Don McLean
- Suspicious Minds-Elvis Presley
He gets: American Pie. Here we go.
A long, long time ago...
I can still remember
How that music used to make me smile.
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance
And, maybe, they’d be happy for a while.
But February made me shiver
With every paper I’d deliver.
Bad news on the doorstep;
I couldn’t take one more step.
I can’t remember if I cried
When I read about his widowed bride,
But something touched me deep inside
The day the music died.
So bye-bye, miss American pie.
Drove my Chevy to the levee,
But the levee was dry.
STOP! Luke, what's next?
Luke's response: And them good old
boys was drinking whiskey & rye. Wine doesn't cut it, but Luke
thinks it's wrong, so he locks it in.......and he's RIGHT!
And now the $350,000 category that
Luke picked: Rock. and with 2 songs, he can't go wrong....or
- Carry On Wayward Son-Kansas
- Fortunate Son-CCR
He goes for: Fortunate Son. Here
Some folks are born made to wave
Ooh, they're red, white and blue.
And when the band plays hail to the chief,
Ooh, they point the cannon at you, lord,
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no senators son, son.
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, no,
Some folks are born silver spoon in hand,
Lord, don't they help themselves, oh.
But when the taxman comes to the door,
Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale, yes,
It ain't me, it ain't me....STOP! Luke blanks out, but
rebounds it with: "I Ain't No Millionaire's son." Is he right?
HE locks it in......and decides to sing it over to make sure
he's right. The judges hear him sing the filled-in
blanks.......and he's right! That's $350,000.
Only one more category left for
$500K: Ballads. Luke has 1 of 2 songs to pick:
- How Am I Supposed to Live
Without You-Michael Bolton
- You Light Up My Life-Debby
Interesting. Good thing he choose
the Michael Bolton one. I was hoping the Debby Boone song made
me mute the TV. So let's have at it with "How Am I Supposed to
Live Without You."
I could hardly believe it
When I heard the news today
I had to come and get it straight from you
They said you were leavin'
Someone swept you heart away
From the look upon your face I see it's true
So tell me all about it, tell me 'bout the plans you're makin'
Then tell me one thing more before I go
Tell me how am I supposed to live without you
Now that I've been lovin' you so long
How am I supposed to live without you
How am I supposed to carry on
When all that I've been livin' for is gone
FREEZE! Luke decides to blank out
and...... bails out. $350,000 is his for the taking. And by
the way, the answer was:
I didn't come here for cryin'
Didn't come here to breakdown
But Luke Adams takes $350,000 in
this karaoke smackdown. Who else will slam down the lyrics for
a million next time? Until then, it's not what you know about,
it's what you sing about it.
