"Wave your hands in the air if you feel fine, We're ____ ___ _ _____ _______..."

With Idol season just underway, "Don't Forget The Lyrics" won't stop, and who knows? It's just a regular game that's not "gonna take it into overtime." With that said, let's begin!

Jamie Babbitt from Brooklyn, NY. is up. She's looking for a good adventure and she's found one. Here are the categories:

ROCK                               MOTOWN

POP                                 LOVE SONGS

R&B                                 POWER BALLADS



Her first choice: Motown, and these:

  • I Second That Emotion-Smokey Robinson & The Miracles

  • Get Ready-The Temptations

She chooses "I Second That Emotion." Let's go!

Maybe you wanna give me kisses sweet
But for only one night with no repeat
Maybe you'll go away and never call
And a taste of honey is worse than none at all
In that case I don't want no part
That would only break my heart

But if you feel like loving me
If you've...You've WHAT?

Jamie's answer: Got the notion. she locks it in, has she got it?............YES! What's next for her? Love Songs. Try these:

  • Open Arms-Journey

  • Tell Her About It-Billy Joey

She gets Open Arms. Let's do it.

Lying beside you, here in the dark
Feeling your heartbeat with mine
Softly you whisper, you're so sincere
How could our love be so blind
We sailed on together
We drifted apart
And here you are, by my side

*So now I come to you with open arms
Nothing to hide...Come out, come out, wherever you are, Jamie.

Jamie's answer: Believe what I say. And she locks it in, and I say it's..............RIGHT! Next up: Huey Lewis & The News. Try these if you will:

  • Hip To Be Square

  • The Heart of Rock & Roll

She gets the Heart of ROck & Roll. Let's Rock!

New York, New York is everything they say
And no place that I'd rather be
Where else can you do a half a million things
And all at a quarter to three
When they play their music, ooh that modern music
The like it with a lot of style
But it's still that same old back beat rhythm
That really drives them wild

They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating
And from what I've seen...FREEZE IT!

Jamie's answer: I believe 'em. Believe that. She locks it in....SCORES!  Her next move: Rock, and she chooses "Only The Good Die Young" by Billy Joel. Here we go.

Well, they showed you a statue, told you to pray
They built you a temple and locked you away
Aw, but they never told you the price that you pay
For things that you might have done.....
Only the good die young

Jamie's answer: What they say. But she uses her 2 words backup. They becomes "I" and say becomes "Said", but she uses 3 lines and obviously, she locks it in with A.........A PLUS! Next on the sheet: 1970's and these groovy songs:

  • Dust In The Wind-Kansas

  • Listen to What The Man Said-Wings

She gets Dust in the Wind. Don't blow it, Jamie!

I close my eyes,
Only for a moment and the moment's gone
All my dreams,
Pass before my eyes, that curiosity

Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind

Same old song,
Just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do,
Crumbles to the ground...HOLD IT!

Jamie's answer: Though we refuse to see. Let's see if that's it as she locks it in. Though we is good, but do the last 3 give her a $25,000 refund?..............Nope. It's right! Next up, R&B, and these 2:

  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg-The 4 Tops

  • Too Hot-Kool & The Gang

She gets Ain't Too Proud to Beg by TLC, er, The 4 Tops. We're off!

I know you want to leave me.
But I refuse to let you go.
If I have to beg and plead for your sympathy
I don't mind 'cause you mean that much to me.

Ain't too proud to beg, and you know it. Go jamie!

Jamie's answer: Please don't leave me girl. Will she leave? She locks it in....She's staying! That is correct. Next category: Power Ballads, and the power of 2 songs:

  • Sister Christian-Night Ranger

  • Black Velvet-Alannah Myles

She gets Black Velvet! Giddyup!

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers on the Victrola up high
Mama's dancin' with baby on her shoulder
The sun is settin' like molasses in the sky
The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for

Black velvet and that little boy's smile
Black velvet...STOP! 

Jamie's answer: In that slow southern style. But is that right? She calls out CJ who changes it to "And," but she isn't sure, so she bails out at $100,000. But was that right? Nope. It was: With.

And with that, our next player is Susan Woods from White House, TN. who was crowned a Tomato Queen. Let's hope her future isn't seeing red. Roll the list out!

ROCK                                CLASSIC ROCK

POP                                  AMERICAN FAVORITES

DISCO                               R&B

DUETS                              ELTON JOHN


 First up: Disco, and these 2:

  • Boogie Nights-Heatwave

  • Shake Your Booty-KC & The SUnshine Band

She gets Shake Your Booty. Let's get shook up in the house.

Ow, everybody, get on the floor, let's dance...

Don't fight feeling, give yourself a chance....ow...

Shake(6x) STOP!

Susan's answer: Shake your Booty. And she locks it in.....OF COURSE! Next up,  Rock. Try these out:

  • Shiny Happy People-REM

  • Takin' It To The Streets-Doobie Bros.

She gets Shiny Happy People. Make 'em shine.

Shiny happy people laughing
Meet me in the crowd
People people
Throw your love around...STOP!

Susan's answer: People Happy People, maybe she might want to use a backup. In this case, 3 lines, and they're:

A-They Say Love Me

B-Love me Love Me

C-Want me Want Me

She locks it in with B......YES! Her next move: Pop. Can she go with one of these:

  • Raindrops Keep Fallin' on my Head-BJ Thomas

  • Opposites Attract-Paula Abdul

She gets Opposites Attract. Here we go!

Baby seems we never ever agree
You like the movies
And I like T.V.
I take things serious
And you take 'em light
I go to bed early
And I...DO WHAT?

Susan's answer: Sleep all night. But it was time for a friend to wake up with this answer: Party all night. Is that right? She locks it in.............YES! Her next move: Elton John, and she chooses "Don't Let The Sun Go Down on Me." Here it is:

I can't light no more of your darkness
All my pictures seem to fade to black and white
I'm growing tired and....STOP! Susan came up with the wrong words when she locked it in, and that was it, but she walks out with $25,000. Judges, what's the answer?

A: time stands still before me.

We're out of time. The message: It's not what you know about it, it's what you sing about it.
