"Episode 1.3" - July 24

Great to "bee" with you again, as six more players "just wanna have fun." Let's help Joey get some players tonight! #80, #136, #60, #109, #217 (who can't sing, but is about to win), and #25 are in the game for $50,000... Let's get started!

Round 1:

- 1987, Billy Idol, "Mony Mony"
Band: "Here she come now, saying Mony, Mony / Shoot'em down turn around, come on Mony / Hey, she give me love..."
#80: "... and I feel alright now!" RIGHT!

- 1991, CeCe Peniston, "Finally"
Band: "Finally / It has happened to me / Right in front of my face / My feelings can't describe it / Finally / It has happened to me / Right in front of my face..."
#136: "And I just cannot hide it." RIGHT!

- 1987, Debbie Gibson, "Only in My Dreams"
Band: "Every time I'm telling secrets / I remember how it used to be / And I realize how much I miss you..."
#60: "And I can never be free..." Nope.
#109: "You're the only one I wanna see..." Totally wrong...
#217: "And I realize how it feels to be free..." THAT's the right answer.

- 1996, Toni Braxton, "Unbreak My Heart"
Band: "Unbreak my heart, say you love me again / Undo this hurt that you caused when you walked out the door..."
#25: "And walked out of my life." We have our four!

Round 2, Lyrics Scramble:

First up are #80 Monica (Pembroke Pines, FL; works for a nonprofit) and #136 Jean (London, England).

Lyrics are jumbled... Unjumble them.

- 1969, the Jackson 5ive, "I Want You Back" (too for much look it's to late now second take me a)
Monica: "Now it's too late"... WRONG. Correct line: "Now it's much too late for me to take a second look."

- 1998, Aerosmith, "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing" (every moment with is treasure you moment spent I a)
Jean: "Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure." Jean moves on!

Next up, #217 Erin (Hanford, CA; server) vs. #25 Shaun (San Diego; play director).

- 1989, Depeche Mode, "Personal Jesus" (make receiver life I'll the believer you up a)
Erin: "I'll lift up a...." Nope.  Correct: "Lift up the receiver, I'll make you a believer."

- 1973, Lynyrd Skynyrd... "FREE BIRD!" (see places too to many there's got 'Cause I've)
Shaun: "'Cause there's too many places I've got to see." Shaun moves on!

Round 3, Sing the chorus:

- 1995, Deep Blue Something, "Breakfast At Tiffany's"
Jean: "And I said what about Breakfast at Tiffany's / you said I think..." BUZZ, wrong. Correct: "She said, I think I remember the film / and as I recall I said we both kinda liked it / and I said well that's one thing we got..."

- 1983, Donna Summer, "She Works Hard For the Money"
Shaun: "She works hard for her money"... The correct answer is in the title.

- 1979, Robert Palmer, "Bad Case of Lovin' You (Doctor, Doctor)"
Jean: "Doctor, doctor / give me the news / I gotta bad case of lovin' you / No pill's gonna pill-cure my ills." Oops, it's another case of "Gotta-Take-Your-First-Answeritis." "No pill's gonna cure my ill." was the line.

- 1983, ZZ Top, "Gimme All Your Lovin'"
Shaun: "I gotta sing something from ZZ Top..." No, but nice try.

We're down to one final tiebreaker. Artist and year will be given. First one to buzz in can either play or pass. The song: 1973, Billy Joel.

Jean's in... She passes it. Shaun, for the title, the song is "Piano Man."

Band: "It's 9 o'clock on a Saturday, / The regular crowd shuffles in / There's an old man sitting here next to me..."

Shaun: "Makin' love to his tonic and gin." That's a win! Now the hard part begins, as we head to... The Final Countdown...

Ray: "It's the Final Countdown!"

I just said that!

The band will play seven songs. For each phrase you sing correctly, you win $5000. Get five out of seven, you're going home with 50 large... But if you get three strikes, it's game over.

Song #1: "I'm every woman, it's all in me / I can read your thoughts right now..."

Shaun: "Every single thing you say..." Wrong. Correct: "Every one from A to Z."

(1992, Whitney Houston, "I'm Every Woman")
$0 X    
Song #2: "Daylight come an' me wan' go home / Come, Mr. Tally Man..."

Shaun: "Tally me banana." We're on the board.

(1956, Harry Belafonte, "Banana Boat Song (Day-O)")
$5,000 X    
Song #3: "You're a rich girl / and you're going too far / 'cause you know it don't matter anyway..."

Shaun: "You can rely on your old man's money..." It was THE old man's money.

(1977, Daryl Hall & John Oates, "Rich Girl")
$5,000 X X  
Song #4: "Girl / You really got me going / You got me so I don't know what I'm doing / Yeah / You really got me now / You got me so..."

Shaun: "I can't sleep at night." That's two!

(1964, The Kinks, "You Really Got Me")
$10,000 X X  
Song #5: "Doctor, doctor, won't you please prescribe me something / A day in the life of someone else / 'Cause I'm a hazard to myself / Don't let me get me..."

Shaun: "Don't let me get me..." Strike three... It was "'Cause I'm my own worst enemy."

(2001, Pink, "Don't Let Me Get Me")

$10,000 X X X

But hey, $10,000 for half an hour's work ain't too bad.

Next week, a new repertoire and six new singers waiting to take it on... and hopefully take it all home.
