"He's makin' a list and _______ ___ ______..."

TO make sure were "Checkin' it twice," Every lyric to fill in the blanks must be exact, and then...BINGO! You get the bling! Last time, Daniel Walters got shot like Bambi with nothing but 2 empty hands, while Tricia Kelly taught the kids a lesson about winning big on a game show. And tonight's show is special, because a "Fifth Grader" student is crossed off the waiting list to play America's favorite karaoke game, "Don't Forget The Lyrics!"

Now as promised, Ashley McCone, a bank teller from San Diego won 0 on Fifth Grader just on the first question. But on DFTL, you always get another shot. So with that, let's see if she can make money this time around, or make history again. Here comes the list:

ROCK                           1960's

POP                              CLASSIC ROCK

R&B                              TV THEMES


                   BREAK-UP SONGS

What's her first one? Pop. And they are:

  • Mony Mony-Billy Idol

  • I Think I Love You-The Partridge Family

She gets the one by the Partridge Family. Let's win money this time, please....

I'm sleeping
And right in the middle of a good dream
like all at once I wake up
From something that keeps knocking at my brain
Before I go insane
I hold my pillow to my head
And spring up in my bed
Screaming out the...STOP! Out the what?

Ashley's answer: Top of my....head? Anyways, she gets the 2 words backup to make sure. "Words" and "Dread" are correct. And gets: Words I dread. She locks it in.....CORRECT! Now that's how you win money. Where to, next? Divas, and.....

  • Hero-Mariah Carey

  • New Attitude-Patti Labelle

She gets Hero. Fly away!

There's a hero
If you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid
Of what you are
There's an answer
If you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know
Will melt away

And then a hero comes along
With the strength...STOP!

Ashley's answer: To carry on. And she cashes it in...YES! What's next? TV Themes. Tune in with these...

  • China Grove-Doobie Brothers

  • Green Acres

Fast fact: "China Grove" is actually the theme to this show, but she gets Green Acres. Hmm. Why did she pick it? Let's go.

Green acres is the place for me.
Farm livin' is the life for me.
Land spreadin' out so far and wide
Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside.
New York is...IS WHAT?

Ashley's answer: Not the place for....for what, the weather? But she weathers the storm and calls out Adelano who blanks out. Maybe the 3 lines will help. Computer:

A-Where I'd rather live

b-where I'd rather play

c-Where I'd rather stay

All 3 may be connected to Paris Hilton, but locks it in with b.....AND IT'S WRONG! For you TV fans out there, C was the one. Maybe she doesn't have cable. I do. I have DirecTV. Like I said, history was made, and you heard it first. Ashley McCone, a bank teller from San Diego California, gets 2 goose eggs in one night. Maybe another game show like Crosswords or Temptation will make her win big, and that's down the road, but we gotta get back to singing. Kristin Nowinski from Grand rapids is next, and she's an adrenaline junkie. She's on the rampage for a million. In comes the list:

ROCK                              1970's

CHER                               COUNTRY
POP                                 MOTOWN

R&B                                 LOVE SONGS
                  DRIVING SONGS

Pop will be her first choice and it's these:

  • Dress you Up-Madonna

  • Good Vibrations-The BEach Boys

She gets Dress you up. Here we go.

You've got style, that's what all the girls say
Satin sheets and luxuries so fine
All your suits are custom made in London
But I've got something that you'll really like


Gonna dress you up...STOP? Where?

Kristin's answer: In my love. And she locks it in...IN THE CAN! What's next? Love songs, with these 2:

  • All out of love-Air Supply

  • The Letter-The Box Tops

She gets all out of love. Let's go!

I'm lying alone with my head on the phone
Thinking of you till it hurts
I know you hurt too but what else can we do
Tormented and torn apart
I wish I could carry your smile and my heart
For times when my life feels so low
It would make me believe what tomorrow could bring
When today doesn't really know, doesn't really know

I 'm all out of love, I'm so...SO WHAT?

Kristin's answer: lost without you. Can't help myself, neither does she, adn she locks it in....FOUND IT! Correct for $5000. The next one she draws is....Cher, and they are:

  • I Got You Babe

  • If I Could Turn Back Time

I was thinking "If I could Turn back the hands of time" by Tyrone Davis, but she gets "If I Could Turn Back Time." Oh.

If I could turn back time
If i could find a way
I'd take back those words that hurt you...STOP!

Kristin's answer: And you'd stay. But is she staying? She locks it in...YES, she is! She gets Rock to be the next category, and they are:

  • It's Still Rock and Roll to Me-Billy Joel

  • Taking Care of Business-BTO

She gets the TCB. Need to explain? Never mind. Let's go.

You get up every morning
From your alarm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above
And people pushin', people shovin'
And the girls who try to look pretty
And if your train's on time
You can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed
Look at me I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day
And I'll be...
Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business..STOP!

She blanks out. She uses the 2 words for help. She gets the last 2 which is "Working overtime." So her answer is: And working overtime. No extra innings in this game. She locks it in...YES! We move on with R&B, and these:

  • Soul Man-Sam & Dave

  • Rubberband Man-The Spinners

That 2nd one isn't to be confused with a T.I. song, but she gets Soul Man. Get down!

Comin to ya on a dusty road
Good lovin I got a truck load
And when you get it you got something
So dont worry cause Im coming

I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man
I'm a soul man

Got what I got the hard way
And Ill make it better each and every day
So honey dont you fret...STOP! Again, she blanks out, the 2nd time in a row. She goes with 3 lines and locks it with B which is: 'Cause you ain't seen nothin' yet. And it is...CORRECT! Next, Driving songs. She's an adrenaline junkie. What more can she say? They are:

  • King of the Road-Roger Miller

  • Should I Stay or should I go-The clash

She gets the Clash song. Let's clash!

I'll always tease, tease, tease
you're happy when I'm on my knees
one day is fine and the next is black
so if you want me off your back
well, come on and let me know
should I stay or should I go?

Should I stay or should I go now?
Should I stay or should I go now?...STOP IT!

Kristin's answer: Well, come and and let me know. But we know that's a good title. And she bails out at $50,000. Before we go, here's this: if I go there will be trouble.

So that's it. That's all the energy we can expand in this hour with a message you could really use: It's not what you know about it, it's what you sing about it.
