Today is

"Episode 1.10" - September 17

Did we say that last time was the season ender? Sorry, we meant this time. And it's east as ABC...

Still an hour long, though.

Round 1:

- 1967, Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough."
Band: "Ain't no mountain high enough / Ain't no valley low enough / Ain't no river wide enough..."
#126: "To keep me from getting to you, babe." RIGHT!

- 1985, Mr. Mister, "Broken Wings"
Band: "Take these broken wings / And learn to fly again / Learn to live so free / When we hear / The voices sing..."
#162: "The book of love will open up and let us in." RIGHT!

One more...

- 1964, Mary Wells, "My Guy"
Band: "I'm sticking to my guy like stamps to a letter / Like birds of a feather..."
#202: "Stick we stick together" Nope.
#199: "We stick together." That's three!

Round 2, Lyrics Scramble:

We have a three-way with #126 Samantha, (LA, aspiring singer), #162 Scott (Jessup, CA; psychotherapist), and #199 Rory ("a little town called Hemmit"; mother of four).

- 1977, Eddie Money, "Two Tickets to Paradise" (pack bags tonight we'll leave your won't you)
Samantha: "You pack your bags and we'll leave tonight." Nope. "Won't you pack your bags and leave tonight."

- 2005, Rob Thomas, "Lonely No More" (know tell you me that so you love sure when me for)
Scott: "So..." Buzzer. "So when you tell me that you love me, know for sure."

This is for the final...

- 1958, Peggy Lee, "Fever" (bear hard get I fever a to so that's)
Rory: "I get a fever that's so hard to bear." You're moving on!

We'll bee one more time to find Rory's opponent, but first, who wants to win Joey's money?

Daniel from San Diego gets this question: According to the lyrics in Tina Turner's "Proud Mary", the big wheel keep on turnin' and Proud Mary keep on burnin'. But where's Mary rollin'?

Daniel: "She's rollin' on the river." And you're rollin' in some dough with $500!

Six more players are dancing to the "Jailhouse Rock".

Round 1:

- 1982, Duran Duran, "Rio"
Band: "Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand / Just like that river twisting through the dusty land / And when she shines she really shows you all she can / Oh Rio Rio..."
#93: "I love Rio land..." ... No.
#176: "'Cause I love her all I can." ... Nope.
#1: "That's how she got her man." God no.
#90: "I'm amazing." Doesn't even rhyme.
#116:... Pay attention. "Dance across the Rio Grande."  RIGHT!

- 2001, Coldplay, "Yellow"
Band: "Look at the stars / Look how they shine for you / And everything you do / Yeah, they were all yellow / I came along..."
#129: "I wrote a song for you." RIGHT!

One more...

- 1977, Billy Joel, "Only the Good Die Young"
Band: "Come out, Virginia / Don't let me wait / Catholic girls start much too late / Sooner or later it comes down to fate..."
#93: "Only the good die young." No.
#176: "Only the good survive" Never knew it was this hard...
#1: "Better answer this song before it's too late" Geez...
#90: "We've only just begun" NEW SONG! It was "I might as well be the one."

- 1958,. The Coasters, "Yakety Yak"
Band: "Take out the papers and the trash / Or you don't get on spending cash / If you don't scrub that kitchen floor / You ain't gonna rock and roll no more..."
#93: "Yakety yak, don't talk back." We have three!

Round 2, Karaoke Showdown:

Next up, it's #116 Tracey (NYC, hosts speed dating parties), #129 Michael (The Bronx, NY; firefighter), and #93 Andrea (Denver, loves Beyonce).

- 1987, Belinda Carlisle, "Heaven Is a Place on Earth"
Tracey gets 10 words for 10 points.

- 1985, Robert Palmer, "Addicted to Love"
Michael gets 14... that knocks Tracey out. Andrea needs to be spot on to move on.

- 1982, Survivor, "Eye of the Tiger"
Andrea sounds decent enough, but only got 10. Michael's moving on to the final!

But first, another $500 to give out. Lisa, a 911 dispatcher, gets the crazy ones... She gets this question... according to the lyrics in Don MacLean's "American Pie", he drove his Chevy to the levee, and even though it was dry, them good old boys were drinking whiskey and what other beverage? "Beer." Sorry. That is rye.

Round 3, Sing the chorus:

Rory is first...

- 1977, Queen, "We Are the Champions"
Rory: "We are the champion, my friend". It was "We are the championS, my friendS..."

Michael needs to get this right to win.

- 1978, Foreigner, "Hot-Blooded"
Michael: "Hot blooded, check it and see / Got a fever that's..." Wrong. "I got a fever of 103..."

Rory's back...

- 1972, Steely Dan, "Reelin' in the Years"
Rory: "Are you reelin' in the years / Sewin' on the times..." ... "Stowin' away the times..."

Michael needs this to win.

- 1967, Jefferson Airplane, "Somebody to Love"
Michael: "Don't you want somebody to love / Don't you need somebody to love / Don't you love..." Nope, it's "Wouldn't you love somebody to love..."

We're going to a tiebreaker... and it's a TV theme... from 1971.

Rory fires... and passes. Michael. The song is "All in the Family."

Band: "Boy the way Glenn Miller played / Songs that made the hit parade / Guys like us we had it made / Those were the days..."
Michael: ... BLANK! "And you knew when you were then." Rory wins the title tonight!

And that entitles her to play for $50,000 in... The Final Countdown...

Ray: "It's the Final Countdown!"

Very very nice... Seven songs, seven missing phrases. For each one you get right, you get $5000. Get five, and you just made $50,000 cash money. Get a song wrong, it's a strike. Three of them and Emily leaves with whatever she got.

Song #1: "Every breath you take / Every move you make / Every bond you break / Every step you take..."

Rory: "I'll be watching you." That's one!

(1983, The Police, "Every Breath You Take")
Song #2: "Meet George Jetson / His boy Elroy / Daughter Judy... "

Rory: "Jane, his wife." Two down, three to go.

(1962, TV theme, "The Jetsons")

Song #3: "Pretty woman / Walking down the street / Pretty woman / The kind I'd like to meet / Pretty woman / I don't believe you / You're not the truth..."

Rory: "No one could look as good as you." Three!

(1964, Roy Orbison, "Oh, Pretty Woman")
Song #4: "Get down on it / Get down on it / Get down on it / How you gonna do it if you really don't wanna dance / By standing on the wall..."

Rory: "Get your back up off the wall..." One more...

(1981, Kool & the Gang, "Get Down on It")
Song #5: "This one goes out to the one I love / This one goes out to the one..."

Rory: "I left behind." Surprisingly not... It's "I've left behind."

(1987, REM, "The One I Love")

$20,000 X    
Song #6: "I believe I can fly / I believe I can touch the sky / I think about it every night and day"

Rory: "Spread my wings and fly away..." WINNER!

(1996, R. Kelly, "I Believe I Can Fly")

$50,000 X    

And we end the season on a high note. We're back October 2 with a new season. See you then!
