"Episode 1.8" - August 2
"What is it that can come and take away all your stress,
tell me, (music), ___ ______ _______, ___ ____ _____ __ ______..."
"Don't Forget The Lyrics" is one big karaoke exam. The host will hand you a million dollars and say "no further questions, you have passed my test." Last time, Dan McLaughlin laughed all the way to the bank for $50,000. Let's see who else can bank in 1 million.
Lucas Kuzma is a farm boy from Witchita, KS., who is ready to roll. We'll do the same with these categories:
1960íS                               INSPIRATIONAL SONGS
EAT & DRINK                     POP
IN THE MOVIES                  R&B
PARTY SONGS                   ROCK
Alright, here we go, what's the first category: 1960's. 2 songs. You know the drill.
  • Raindrops keep falling on my head-BJ Thomas
  • Born to Be Wild-Steppenwolf
He gets Born to Be Wild. Let's rock!
Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And....STOP! What else, Lucas?
Lucas' response: Explode into space. He throws a bomb to lock it in for a hail mary......TOUCHDOWN! The next category: Stevie Wonder. There are 2 songs by him:
  • You are the sunshine of my Life
  • Isn't She Lovely
He gets the first one and we're off and racing.
You are the sunshine of my life
Thats why Ill always be around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever youll stay in my heart

I feel like this...HOLD IT RIGHT THERE! Lucas?
Lucas' response: Is the beginning. And it's not going to end quickly, because he locks it in.....and he SCORES! The next one is: Inspirational songs. He's got 2 songs to make it flow:
  • Because you love me-Celine Dion
  • Ain't No Mountain High Enough-Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell
He gets: Because you love me. Here we go.
For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love...STOP! Where, Lucas?
Lucas' response: I have for you. But he throws in a backup of 2 words, and he has 2 left which is 3 lines and calling out mom & dad. The 2nd word have is what he wants, and all he has is: Found. and the last word is correct, but he changes it to in, and locks it "in."'s in the net!  Next one, please: R&B. The 2 songs are:
  • Midnight Train to Georgia-Gladys Knight & The Pips
  • Just Once-Quincy Jones
He gets Just once. We're underway.
I did my best
But I guess my best wasn't good enough
'Cause here we are back where we were before
Seems nothing ever changes
We're back to being strangers
Wondering if we oughta stay
Or head on out the door

Just once can't we figure out what we keep doing wrong...AND STOP! What's next, Lucas?
Lucas' response: Why the good times never last so....too many. He gets the 3 lines and they are:
A. How come we never last for very long
B. We never ever last for very long
C. Why we never last for very long
He gets C....and that's correct!  The next one for $50,000 or $25,000 if wrong: Eat & Drink. The 2 songs are about the category referring to...well, eat & drink. They are:
  • Escape (The Pina Colada Song)-Rupert Holmes
  • One Bad Apple-The Osmonds
He gets Escape. Let's escape to it!
If you like pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain,
If you're not into yoga, if you have half a brain,
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape,
I'm the lady you've looked for...FREEZE IT! What's next?
Lucas' response: something something escape. Something isn't going to get you cash. But I know something, he burns his last backup and calls his dad with the answer: Come with me & escape. He locks it in, but we dissect it to make sure. The last 3 words are right, but are the first 2 right, also?.............NOPE! The answer is: Write to. But $25,000 is nothing to write home about for Lucas, but Joe Langer from NYC enters and signs in to play the game. A tax attorney, he's hoping to follow in the footsteps of "Millionaire's" John Carpenter, who works for the IRS, because it's a tax company. Don't you get it?  Anyways, the categories are:
POP                                        1980íS
ROCK                                     THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED
COUNTRY                             BREAK-UP SONGS
Let's get it rolling here and Easy listening will be the first category. The 2 songs are:
  • Can't Smile without You-Barry manilow
  • Say you say me-Lionel Richie
He gets the Barry Manilow one and we're off!
You know I cant smile without you
I cant smile without you
I cant laugh and I cant sing
Im finding it hard....AND STOP! Where, Joe?
Joe's response: To do anything. But it's nothing he can do but lock it in.....and he's right! Next one: Break-up Songs. Here's what we got:
  • These Boots are made for walkin'-Nancy Sinatra
  • If you Don't Know me by Now-Simply Red
He gets the boots, and we're off!
You keep saying you've got something for me
Something you call love, but confess
You've been messin' where you shouldn't have been a messin'
And now someone else is gettin' all your best.

These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots are gonna...STOP! What, Joe?
Joe's response: Walk All Over You. He runs to lock it in, crosses the finish line.....CORRECT! And the next one is: Rock. The 2 songs are:
  • Life's Been Good-Joe Walsh
  • I don't want to miss a thing-Aerosmith
He gets the Aerosmith song and we're off!
I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
While youre far away dreaming
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure

Dont want to close my eyes
I dont want to fall asleep
Cause Id...HOLD IT! What, Joe?
Joe's response: Miss you baby. But he wants to pinch hit by using the 2 words backup and gets the first and last ones correct. And he locks it in......HOMERUN! Now the next category: 1980's, and the 2 songs are:
  • Don't You Forget About me-Simple Minds
  • We Got the Beat-The Go-Go's
His choice, We got the Beat. Let's rock!
See the people walking down the street
Fall in line just watching all their feet
They don't know where they wanna go
But they're walking in time
They got the beat
They got the beat
They got the beat
See the kids just getting out of school, They can't wait to....STOP! Joe?
Joe's response:Walk down to the pool. Joe decides to catch a wave by using the 3 lines, and they are:
A. Hang around and act cool
B. Hang out and be Cool
C. Hang back & seem cool
He gets b, locks it in..........Bang! That's right! The next one is: Pop. and the 2 choices are:
  • Don't You Want Me-Human League
  • Get Down On It-Kool & The Gang
He wants to "Get Down on It." So do we.
What you gonna do? You want to get down?
Tell me
what you gonna do? Do you want to get down?
What you gonna do? You want to get down?
What you gonna do? You want to get down? - Tell me.

Get down on it
get down on it

Get down on it
get down on it
come on and
Get down on it
get down on it

Get down on it
get down on it.

How you gonna do it if you really don't want do dance? FREEZE! Joe's got the answer and it is: By standing on the wall. He locks it in and it's right! The next  song from another category he chose is Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison. Let's rock!
Pretty woman, walking down the street
Pretty woman, the kind I like to meet
Pretty woman
I don't believe you, you're not the truth
No one could look as good as you

Pretty woman, won't you pardon me
Pretty woman, I couldn't help see
Pretty woman...OKAY, STOP!
Joe's response: I don't know if I should live or die, but I'd know I......way too many. He burns the last backup and calls out a friend who answers with: You're lonely, I guess it's true, that you look as lovely as you. However, it was no love, but he bails out for $50,000. Here's the answer: That you look lovely as can be
Are you lonely just like me
Wow, what a show! We'll see you next time for the summer finale and until then, it's not what you know about it, it's what you sing about it.
