"I See the happiness, I
see the pain, ____ ____ __..."
People wonder "Where am
I?" as they're on a game show. "Don't Forget The Lyrics" is where
they'll find it. Last time, Shamari Berkley ripped down the 18 & over
sign and won $350,000. Now we point the way to the entrance door as we
start the show.
It's the month of
February, and we kick off with the first couple to compete on the
show, and that is Lisa & Justin Riesand from Arizona. In this couples
game, they take turns playing lead singer. So now we turn to the
ROCK ROCK ANTHEMS
R&B BILLY JOEL
BREAK-UP SONGS DUETS
Lisa is up first on Billy
Joel and the songs from the Piano Man are:
We didn't start the fire
You may Be Right
She gets "You May Be
Right." Here we go.....
Friday night I crashed
Saturday I said I'm sorry
Sunday came and trashed me out again
I was only having fun....STOP!
Lisa's answer: Dang it
dang....Don't dang herself, she uses the 2 lines backup. She gets the
last 2 which is: "Hurting anyone." So she locks it in with: Wasn't
hurting anyone. Did that help? YES! It's now Justin's turn to pick.
He gets: Duets. The perfect category for couples. They must now both
be in on these 2:
He gets "You're the One
that i want." We're off!
I got chills
And I'm losing control
'Cause the power you're supplying
You better shape up
'Cause I need a man
And my heart...STOP!
Justin, er, Lisa's answer:
Is set on you. He's all set to lock it in.....GOOD! Lisa now takes
control with Break-up Songs, and these:
She gets "What A Fool
Believes." Don't get laughed at, now.
He came from somewhere
back in her long ago
The sentimental fool don't see
Tryin' hard to recreate
What had yet to be created once in her life
She musters a smile
For his nostalgic tale
Never coming near what he wanted to say...GO LISA!
Lisa's answer: Only to
realize. And only on this show it may be correct. She locks it
in.....and it's only RIGHT! Justin takes the wheel with: Rock Anthems.
He gets We Built This
City. Let's see how much more of a mountain of cash they're building.
We built this city, we
built this city on rock an' roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock an' roll
Say you don't know me, or recognize my face
Say you don't care...STOP IT! And Justin blanks out. He gets the 3
lines and they are:
A-Who runs in that kind of
B-TO live in that fast a pace
C-Who goes to that kind of place
They say a, but they're
not sure, so they call mom out with A. They lock it in, is the finish
line in sight?......Not IT! Had they chose C, it was worth $25K. Looks
like it's a double beatdown for Lisa & Justin. But now it's John
Adams, a father of 3 from Lancaster, Ca. to beat down the 9 categories
for a million. And they are:
ROCK ROCK ANTHEMS
POP DONNA SUMMER
LOVE SONGS PARTY SONGS
First up for the father
of 3 kids: Rock Anthems, and these 2:
He gets "Another One Bites
the Dust." Let's dig in!
Steve walks warily down
with the brim pulled way down low
Ain't no sound but the sound of his feet,
machine guns ready to go
Are you ready,
Are you ready for this
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust...Band stopped playing, what is John's
John's answer: And another
one gone. And he locks it in.....RIGHT! What's next? Party Songs.
Party on with these:
He gets Dancing on The
Ceiling. Let's dance!
What is happening here
Something's going on that's not quite clear
Somebody turn on the lights
We're gonna have a party
It's starting tonight
John's answer: What a
feeling. He locks it in...and what a feeling it is to be RIGHT! What's
next? Rock. Try these 2:
He gets Crocodile Rock.
Rock on, y'all!
I remember when rock was
Me and Shandi had so much fun (C-Note: Sly, Pierre...)
holding hands and skimming stones
Had an old gold Chevy and a place of my own
But the biggest kick I ever got
was doing a thing called the Crocodile Rock
While the other kids were Rocking Round the Clock
we were hopping and bopping to the Crocodile Rock
Well Crocodile Rocking is something shocking
when your feet just can't keep still
I never knew me a better time and I guess....What's your guess, John?
John's answer: I never
will. But I will tell you as he locks it in, that it's CORRECT! Next
up is Donna Summer, and the 2 songs from the queen of Disco are:
John gets "She Works Hard
for the money." Here we go.
She works hard for the
money. So hard for it, honey.
She works hard for the money. So you better...DO WHAT?
John's answer: Treat her
right. And as he locks it in...that is RIGHT! And the next one up is
Legends, and these 2....
He gets Rocket Man. Blast
She packed my bags last
Zero hour, nine a.m.
And I'm gonna be high as a kite by then.
I miss the earth so much,
I miss my wife.
It's lonely out in space
On such a timeless flight.
And I think....THINK WHAT?
John's answer: It's gonna
be a long long time. He locks it in....SCORE! Our next category:
1970's. What's on the menu, please?
He gets Carry On Wayward
Son. We're on our way!
Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest...Music stops playing, what's the answer?
John's answer: Don't you
cry no more. He locks it in...and he's not gonna cry, because it's
RIGHT! On to Pop we go and these 2:
He gets Mayas adored, er,
My Eyes Adored you. And we're off!
My eyes adored ya
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored ya
Like a million miles away from me you couldn't see how I adored ya
John's answer: And yet so
far away too. Looks like he wants the 3 lines to make sure. Bring 'em
A-So close and then you're
B-So Close yet far from me
C-So close and yet so far
He takes C as his guess,
but he burns the 2 lines to make sure. So obviously, he locks it in
with c. That IS...THE RIGHT ANSWER! 2 more to go, and Love Songs is
the next one. They are:
Bad Case of Loving You
(Doctor, Doctor) - Robert Palmer
Baby, Come to Me-James
Ingram & Patti Austin
He gets the Robert Palmer
song. Let's see if that's the case for $350,000.
The hot summer night fell like a net
I've got to find my baby yet
I need you to soothe my head
Turn my blue heart to red
Doctor, doctor, give me the news
I've got a bad case of lovin' you
No pill's gonna cure my ill
I've got a bad case of lovin' you...STOP! And he blanks out. He calls
out his brother jim, but nothing doing for him. Seems it's a good time
to bail out....and he does at $200,000. If you're paying attention,
the first line of the second verse has the answer: A pretty face don't
make no pretty heart.
And we've made another
episode. The only thing left for me to say is that it's not what you
know about it, it's what you sing about it.
