TIEBREAKER! The song: 1985, Phil Collins. Pamela fires... she plays. The song: "Sussudio".

Band: "Girl that's been on my mind / All the time / Su-Sussudio / Whoa / Now she don't even know my name... "

Pamela: "But I think she likes me just the same." That's a win! Pamela is playing for the money...

Now the hard part begins, as we head to... The Final Countdown...

Ray: "It's the Final Countdown!"

Song #5: "She's a very kinky girl / The kind you won't take home to mother / She won't ever let your spirits down / Once you get her off the street / She likes the boys in the band..."

Pamela: "She's got crazy hair..." Strike three...

(1981, Rick James, "Super Freak")
