"It's the end of the world as we know it, It's the end of the world as we know it, It's the end of the world as we know it, ___ _ ____ ____..."
It's a new year, "And I feel fine" despite those tough economic times and "Don't Forget The Lyrics!"  is back on your TV. So far this season, it's been reunions, celebrities and weirder personalities.  Looks like we're back to work, so let's begin the new year.
Magicians Penn & Teller appear on your screen and the charity will be the James Randi Educational Foundation.  The categories are:
POP                                  IT'S MAGIC
BALLADS                          1980'S
R&B                                   ROCK
                     DRIVING SONGS
Off to R&B first and they are:
  • Will It Go 'Round in Circles - Billy Preston
  • Rescue Me - Fontella Bass
They get "Will It Go 'Round in Circles".  Let's ride!

I've got a song I ain't got no melody
How'm I gonna sing it with my friends
I've got a song I ain't got no melody
How'm I gonna sing it with my friends

Will it go round in circles
Will it fly high like a bird....WHERE?

Their answer: up in the sky.  They lock it in....up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's....THE RIGHT ANSWER!  Now about Teller, he was stuck in a box inside his head, so they do a magic trick to reveal it. Now on to the next category which is Ballads and these 2:

  • Hard to Say I'm Sorry - Chicago
  • Unchained Melody - The Righteous Brothers

They get 'Unchained Melody."  Think of "Ghost." Here it is.... 

Oh, my love, my darling,
I've hungered for your touch a long, lonely time,
Time goes by so slowly and time can do so much.
Are you still mine?

Their answer: Need your love.  They need this for $5000. Locking it in.....YES!  On to 1980's and...

  • Bad - Michael Jackson
  • Give Me The Night - George Benson

They get "Bad." How bad have they got it?

Your Butt Is Mine
Gonna Take You Right
Just Show Your Face
In Broad Daylight
I'm Telling You
On How I Feel
Gonna Hurt Your Mind
Don't Shoot To Kill
Come On, Come On,
Lay It On Me All Right...

I'm Giving You
On Count Of Three
To Show Your Stuff
Or Let It Be . . .
I'm Telling You
Just Watch Your Mouth
I Know Your Game
What You're About

Well They Say The Sky's The Limit
And To Me That's Really True
But My Friend You Have Seen Nothing
Just Wait...

...for a blankout. But they respond back with: 'Til I get Through.  Locking it in again....and they're THROUGH! It's correct! Now for the safety net, Driving Songs. Try these:

  • Slow Ride - Foghat
  • Drivin' My Life Away - Eddie Rabbitt


Slowride, take it easy

I'm in the mood
The rhythm is right
Move to...WHAT? 

All they get is another blankout, their 2nd in a row.  But they fight back with "the music, and we'll roll all night." But they think it's not right, so they call out comic Carrot Top to correct the problem with: We can roll all night.  They lock it in....CORRECT! $25,000 and we're on a roll.  On to Elvis Presley and the songs by the king are:

  • Blue Suede Shoes
  • Jailhouse Rock

They get Blue Suede Shoes.  Rock out!

Well, its one for the money,
Two for the show,
Three to get ready,
Now go, cat, go.

But don't you step on my blue suede shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

Well, you can knock me down,
Step in my face,

Their answer: My name all over the place.  Locking them all over......GOT IT!  On to It's Magic. For our next trick:

  • Magic Bus - The Who
  • You Can Do Magic - America

They get Magic Bus. Ride on!

Every day I get in the queue (Too much, the Magic Bus)
To get on the bus that takes me to you (Too much, the Magic Bus)
I'm so nervous, I just sit and smile (Too much, the Magic Bus)
Your house is only another mile (Too much, the Magic Bus)
Thank you, driver, for getting me here (Too much, the Magic Bus)
You'll be an inspector, have no fear (Too much, the Magic Bus)
I don't want to cause no fuss (Too much, the Magic Bus)
But can I buy your Magic Bus? (Too much, the Magic Bus)

I don't care how much I pay (Too much, the Magic Bus)

Their answer:  ____ ___ __ ___ __ ___ _____ _____ today.

Maybe the 3 lines will fill it in. They are:

A) Gonna ride this bus to my lady each day
B) Wanna drive the bus to my baby each day
C) Wanna take the bus to my baby each day

They get B and it is..............RIGHT!  Next up,  Classic Rock.  Here they come:

  • Do You Feel Like We Do - Peter Frampton
  • Love Me Two Times - The Doors

They get Love Me Two Times. Let's begin.....

Love me two times, baby
Love me twice today
Love me two times, baby
I'm goin' away
Love me two times, baby
One for tomorrow
One just for today
Love me two times
I'm goin' away

Love me one time
Could not speak
Love me one time
Yeh my knees got weak
love me....two times baby last me all through the week. As they lock it in, we dissect it. They get the first 2 words right and the remaining words right, but "baby" is there.  Is it?..............INCORRECT!  They get sent home crying like a baby with $25,000, but don't cry because the answer is: Girl. 

We leave you now with Edgar Winter doing his classic "Free Ride."  Oh, come on, no "Frankenstein?" Anyway, the ride is over for now, but we're ridin' dirty in 2009. Our resolution: it's not what you know about it, it's what you sing about it.
