"I wanna rock and roll all nite... and ____ ____ ____"

It's a "party every day" when Gary Dell'abate, also known as "Baba Booey" from the Howard Stern radio program, shows up to play. But that's not all, as he brings some star-power backup to help him out. Also, a flight attendant's voice takes off toward the million...

But first, the man of the hour, GARY DELL'ABATE is playing for LifeBeat, a charity close to his heart, preventing HIV/AIDS.

As you know, we guarantee $25,000, but Gary's got the mindset and the help to get him all the way. His backups are Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray and Howard Stern co-host Jon Hein.

Singing backup are her friends Elbert and Tim. Now to the board...

R & B    1960s

First choice for Gary is American Favorites for $1000...

- "Rockin' Robin" - Michael Jackson
- "God Bless the USA" - Lee Greenwood

Baba Booey wants to really wanna rock tonight. We really want three words.

"He rocks in the tree tops all day long
Hoppin' and a-boppin' and singing his song
All the little birdies on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet

Rockin' robin, tweet tweet tweet
Rockin' robin' tweet tweetly-tweet
Blow rockin' robin
'Cause we're really... WHAT?

"Gonna rock tonight"? Rockin' start.

Next is Classic Rock...

- "Comfortably Numb" - Pink Floyd
- "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo" - Rick Derringer

He wants to rock... again. We want three words... again.

I couldn't stop movin' when it first took hold
It was a warm spring night at the old town hall
There was a band called The Jokers, they were layin' it down
Doncha know I'm never gonna lose that funky sound
Rock 'n' Roll, Hoochie Koo
Lordy mama... MAMA?

He went with "light my blues"... but locks in "light my fuse..." Good thing. That's right for $5000!

Next up is Rock for $10,000...

- "Mississippi Queen" - Mountain
- "Hold On Loosely" - 37 Special

He wants to play Mississippi Queen. We're looking for three words...

Way down around Vicksburg, Around Louisiana way
Lived a cajun lady, Aboard the Mississippi Queen
You know she was a dancer
She moved better on wine

While the rest of them dudes were'a gettin' their kicks,
Boy I beg your pardon, I was getting mine

Mississippi Queen, If you know... DO YOU KNOW?

"What I mean?" It's what you mean for $10,000.

Now for the guaranteed money. We're going back to the 1960s.

- "Game of Love" - Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders
- "Dizzy" - Tommy Roe

Let's get dizzy... Six words...

Dizzy, Iím so dizzy my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And itís You girl ... PAUSE!

... "Me dizzy, like a thing that"... gets dizzy. Gary's dizzy, so he uses three lines.

a) "it twirl, I'm feeling so dizzy"
b) "it spin, you're making me dizzy"
c) "it spin, I'm getting so dizzy"

Locking in B... and we have money! Gary also gets a Mets jersey and the two best seats in the house... Which doesn't exist as of this typing. Sorry, folks.

Next comes Legends for $50,000...

- "Heartlight" - Neil Diamond
- "Another Saturday Night" - Sam Cooke

We're spending "Another Saturday Night" with Gary... Seven words.

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I've got some money 'cause I just got paid
Now how I wish I had someone to... DO WHAT WITH?

".. talk to, I'm in an awful way"... is not awful at all! It's good for $50,000!

Now Gary gets to be a soul singer with R&B for $100,000...

- "Sir Duke" - Stevie Wonder
- "In the Midnight Hour" - Wilson Pickett

He wants to sing Stevie. We want 10 words.

Music is a world within itself
With a language we all understand
With an equal opportunity
For all to sing, dance and clap their hands
But just because a record has a groove
Don't make it in the groove
But you can tell right away at letter a
When the people start to move

They can feel ... CAN YOU FEEL?

Gary locks in "it all over, they can feel it all over people." ... And people, he's got $100,000!

Next on his hit parade is Pop.

- "Ventura Highway" - America
- "Neutron Dance" - Pointer Sisters

We're going on the Ventura Highway... looking for a nine-pack.

Chewin' on a piece of grass walkin' down the road
tell me, how long you gonna stay here Joe?
Some people say this town don't look good in snow
You don't care, I know.

Ventura Highway, in the sunshine, where the ... HIT ME!

" wind is blowing and the things are going"... Not entirely sure, so he goes to a backup... Here comes Mark. He goes "...days are longer, the nights are stronger than moonshine" And Gary locks THAT in... GOOD!

For $350,000, it's all about Genesis...

- "Misunderstanding"
- "Tonight, Tonight, Tonight"

No Misunderstanding about this, 10 words gets Gary $350,000.

There must be some misunderstanding
There must be some kind of mistake
I waited in the rain for hours
You were late
Now it's not like me to say the right thing
But you could've called to let me know
I checked...

.... blanked. Two words coming. The first two... "your number ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___".

No more help, which means Gary bails out. LifeBeat will get $200,000!

The correct answer, by the way, was "...your number twice, don't understand it, so I went home".

We had one big winner, why not two? Next to play is a flight attendant from Big D, Dallas, TX... CHERYL JONES! She calls herself the "Susan Lucci of the airwaves". She trained 11 years to be a flight attendant, so when la Lucci got her Emmy, Cheryl got her wings.

The board...

COUNTRY    1970s

It's time for this girl to earn her wings, starting with Love Songs...

- "Saving All My Love for You" - Whitney Houston
- "Jungle Love" - Steve Miller Band

She is saving all her love for $2500... Three words...

"A few stolen moments is all that we share
You've got your family, and they need you there
Though I've tried to resist, being last on your list
But no other ..." WHAT?

"Man's gonna do..." and she even throws in the hook. That hooks her $2500.

Next up is Pop and these two.

- "Hold the Line" - Toto
- "Any Way You Want It" - Journey

She likes journey. We like four words.

She loves to laugh
She loves to sing
She does everything
She loves to move
She loves to grove
She loves the lovin' things

Ooh, all night, all night
Oh, every night
So hold tight, hold tight
Ooh, baby, hold tight

Oh, she said,
Any way you want it

She decides to call on Elbert to help. He thinks it's "way I like it". He... doesn't like it. So we go to two words, leaving us with "___ you need ___". STILL no idea, so we go to three lines..

a) "way you need it"
b) "thing you ask for"
c) "way to shoot for"

She chooses A... and she's right for $5000!

Next is R&B...

- "Wonderful World" - Sam Cooke
- "If Ever You're in My Arms Again" - Peabo Bryson

She runs to "my arms". Four words gets you $10,000...

It all came so easy, all the loving you gave me
The feelings we shared
And I still can remember, how you touched me so tender
It told me you cared

We had a once in a lifetime
But I just couldn't see until it was gone
A second once in a lifetime
May be too much to ask but i swear from now on

If ever you're in my arms again
This time I'll... DO WHAT?!

She tries "show you much better" ... She has the last three right. The show... is over. It was "Love you much better", meaning that Cheryl's leaving with absotively posolutely nothing.

Next week, it's a twin thing. Until then, remember in the words of my main music man Pierre, it's not what you know about it, it's what you sing about it.
