"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,
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...

I couldn't stop movin' when it first took

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?

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
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
Now for the guaranteed money. We're going

- "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

- "Another Saturday Night" - Sam Cooke
We're spending "Another Saturday Night"
with Gary... Seven words.
Another Saturday night and I ain't got

".. 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
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
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!
"...free 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...
- "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
.... 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.
PHIL COLLINS POP
R & B LOVE SONGS
ROCK CLASSIC ROCK
It's time for this girl to earn her
wings, starting with Love Songs...
- "Saving All My Love for You" - Whitney
- "Jungle Love" - Steve Miller Band
She is saving all her love for $2500...
"A few stolen moments is all that we
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
That's the... SOMETHING SOMETHING...
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
a) "way you need it"
b) "thing you ask for"
c) "way to shoot for"
She chooses A... and she's right for
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
It all came so easy, all the loving you
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
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.
