Episode 2.3

Time for another Bee, as Melissa gets six players to start "Livin' in Fast Forward" for $10,000 and a nice piece of metal to hang somewhere.


- 2009, Reba McEntire, "Strange'"
BAND: Strange, talk about luck / I woke up and the sun was shining / Strange, I ought to be in bed with my head....
Mark: "In the pillow crying." Even finished the chorus. That's nice.

- 2005, Toby Keith, "As Good As I Once Was"
BAND: So don't double dog dare me now / 'Cause I'd have to call your bluff / I ain't as good as I once was...
Daniel: "But I'm as good once as I ever was." Got it.

- 1983, Night Ranger, "Sister Christian"
BAND: Motorin' / What's your price for flight / In finding mister right...
Jill: "You'll be all right tonight." THAT'S RIGHT.

- 1991, Lorrie Morgan, "Except for Monday"
BAND: Except for Monday which was / never good anyway / Tuesday I get a little sideways / Wednesday I feel better...
Brian: "Just for strife." Ehhh, close.
Cassidy: "Just for spite." THAT'S FOUR!

Four players... only one champion. Let's play the Bee!

RANDOM SHUFFLE (5 points per lyric)

- 2001, Brad Paisley, "Wrapped Around" (wrapped it's around I'm the thing finger on a put to I ring time)
Mark: "I think it's time to put a ring on the finger I'm wrapped around." RIGHT!

- 2007, Luke Bryan, "Country Man" (the do I can't thing boy can A city)
Daniel: "A city boy can't do the things I can." RIGHT!

- 2005, Nickelback, "If Everyone Cared" (day when the nobody see we'd died Then)
Jill: "Then nobody... ." Yeah, just stop. "Then we'd see the day that nobody died."

- 2004, Trace Adkins, "Songs About Me" (good loving Songs hearted about and women and living)
Cassidy: "About living and loving and...." We were looking for "Songs about loving and living and good hearted women"

After Round 2
Mark: 5
Daniel: 5
Jill: 0
Cassidy: 0

SINGING WITH THE ENEMY (5 points per line)

The dudes are first.

- 1998, Jo Dee Messina, "Bye Bye"

BAND: Boy you sure look good there / standin' in the doorway in the sunset light / Maybe I read you wrong thinkin' ...
Mark: "You could be my Mr. Right" (RIGHT!)
BAND: I was puttin' my heart and soul on the line / Said you needed some time / just a little more time...
Daniel: "To make up your mind" (RIGHT!)
BAND: Well it's been long enough / Time is up / Bye bye love...
Mark: "I'll catch you later" (RIGHT!)
BAND: Got a lead foot down on my accelerator / and the rearview mirror torn off / I ain't never lookin' back...
Daniel: "And that's a fact." (RIGHT!)
BAND: I've tried all I can imagine / I've begged and pleaded...
Mark: "True lover's fashion" (IN true lover's fashion)
BAND: I've got pride...
Daniel: "I'm takin' it for a ride" (RIGHT!)
BAND: Bye bye, bye bye my baby, bye bye

Daniel's got the perfect 15! ONE word costs Mark 5 points. Next up, it's the ladies' turn...

- 1976, Bellamy Brothers, "Let Your Love Flow"

BAND: So let that feelin' / grab you deep inside / And send you reelin' / where your love can't hide / And then go stealin' / through the moonlit nights...
Jill: "With your lover." (RIGHT!)
BAND: Just let your love flow...
Cassidy: "Deep down in my soul" (like a mountain stream)
BAND: And let your love grow / with the smallest of dreams / And let your love show / and you'll know what I mean
Jill: "That's the reason" (It's the season.)
BAND: Let your love fly...
Cassidy: "Higher and higher" (like a bird on wing)
BAND: And let your love bind you...
Jill: "To all livin' things." (RIGHT!)
BAND: And let your love shine / and you'll know what I mean...
Cassidy: "Let your love shine." (That's the reason.)

There's always one that knows that she totally screwed it. Today, it's Cassidy. Meanwhile Jill has 10 more.

After Round 3
Mark: 15
Daniel: 20
Jill: 10
Cassidy: 0

KARAOKE CHALLENGE (2 points per word)

First up is Cassidy, who's been zero for the world right now. She needs as many as she can get... eight will help her out immensely.

- 2006, Rascal Flatts, "Stand"

Cassidy apparently was saving her best for last, because she SWEPT that one.

Jill needs five to tie for second.

- 1994, Hootie & the Blowfish, "Let Her Cry"

Another perfect score! Jill is up to 40.

Mark needs eight to move on.

- 1992, Garth Brooks, "That Summer"

No perfect score, but 14 works for 28 more. He's definitely moving on with 43.

Daniel needs to get 10 to tie, 11 to win.

- 2005, Craig Morgan, "Redneck Yacht Club"

And for the fourth time in the series, we have a PERFECT SCORE! Craig moves on with 50!


Craig will have the honor on the first song, and the song is from 2003 by Brooks & Dunn. Daniel will PLAY.

- 2003, Brooks & Dunn, "You Can't Take the Honky Tonk out of the Girl"

Daniel: "She flies to LA she flies to..." Almost, it was "She lives in LA, she flies to New York City".

Mark could have sweet redemption here if he nails the chorus.

- 1996, George Strait, "Blue Clear Sky"

Mark: "Here she comes a walkin' trawkin' to love." That's "talkin' true". Daniel's still alive...

- 2003, No Doubt, "It's My Life"

Daniel: "'Cause it's my life." No, it isn't. Mark gets another shot... very crucial moment...

- 1996, Sheryl Crow, "If It Makes You Happy"

Mark: "If it makes you happy / It can't be that bad / If it makes you happy / Then why the hell are you so sad." WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!

So Mark came from behind and the title is his to take. But can he profit from it? All he has to do is complete five songs correctly. Each one is worth $500 cash. Five is worth $10,000. BUT, miss one and get a strike. Miss three... game over. But you do get to take home any cash you win, so no excuse not to go for it. It's time to play... THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!

Song #1: Mother freedom / Father o' time / Since she left me by myself / You're the only family...

Mark: "I got left" THAT'S ONE!

(1990, Mark Chesnutt, "Brother Jukebox")

Song #2: This world keeps spinning faster / into a new disaster....

Mark: "So I run to you." NICE.

(2009, Lady Antebellum, "I Run To You")

Song #3: Caught up in the touch / Slow and steady rush / Baby isn't that the way...

Mark: "That love's supposed to be." Three up, three down!

(1998, Faith Hill, "Breathe")

Song #4: He's licking his lips he's ready to win / On the hunt tonight for love at first sting / Here I am...

Mark: "Rocked you like a hurricane." SO CLOSE...

(1984, Scorpions, "Rock You Like a Hurricane")

$1500 X    
Song #5: Oh my next thirty years / I'm gonna watch my weight / Eat a few more salads...

Mark: "Not so many steaks..." Danger zone. It's "And not stay up so late."

(2000, Tim McGraw, "My Next Thirty Years")

$1500 X X  
Song #6: Why can't I forget you / and start my life anew...

Mark: "Instead of having sweet dreams of you." GAME OVER.

(1963, Patsy Cline, "Sweet Dreams (Of You)")

$1500 X X X

The corrrect answer was, "instead of having sweet dreams about you." But it's okay, because you have $1500 and the title of the Singing Bee Champion.

Six more people will try to sing it right (because that's all that matters) next week. Play us out, Steve.
