Episode 2.13 - America's Heroes Night
June 25

Tonight is a special night at the Bee, and "Only in America" can we salute the men and women of the United States Armed Forces on a game show that's all about karaoke.

- 1991, Garth Brooks, "Papa Loved Mama"

BAND: American woman stay away from me / American woman...
Chris: "Mama let me be" YES!

- 1993, Sammy Kershaw, "She Don't Know She's Beautiful"
BAND: She don't know she's beautiful / Never crossed her mind / She don't know she's beautiful / No she's not that kind / She don't know she's beautiful / Though time and time...
Danielle: "I told her so" THAT'S FOUR!

Apologies to Mike, but I bet he'll show up in a future Bee. But for now, we have four, so... Let's play!

- 2005, Big & Rich, "Eighth of November" (were left men that few day There standing)
Danielle: "There were few men left standing that day". GOOD!

After Round 2, we're all knotted up at 5.

SINGING WITH THE ENEMY (5 points per line)

First, Allie & Harold.

- 2002, Toby Keith, "Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue (The Angry American)"

BAND: Oh justice will be served / and the battle will rage / This big dog will fight...
Allie: "If you rattle his cage" (When you rattle his cage)
BAND: An' you'll be sorry you messed / with the U S of A / 'Cause we'll put a boot in your ass...

BAND: And the eagle will fly / And there's gonna be hell / When you hear Mother Freedom start ...
Harold: "Ringin' her bell" (RIGHT!)
BAND: And it'll feel like the whole wide world...
Allie: "Is rainin' down on you" (RIGHT!)
BAND: Aw brought to you courtesy...
Harold: "Of the Red White and Blue" (SWEEP!)

Harold sweeps, Allie slips once. Next are Chris and Danielle...

- 2006, Sugarland, "Everyday America"

BAND: Grew up on a tightrope / Learned to smile / Even when I was fallin' down / Daddy had a hard hand / And Mama always had hope / And me and my sister...
Chris: "Just couldn't wait to get out" (extra word)
BAND: I fell in love outta college...

Danielle: "And a great big life" (RIGHT!)

Two for Danielle for 10. Chris... still on five.

After Round 3
Allie: 15
Harold: 20
Chris: 5
Danielle: 15

KARAOKE CHALLENGE (2 points per word)

Chris, thanks to that shipwreck of a performance in Singing with the Enemy, is going first. He needs eight to take the lead.

- 2009, Justin Moore, "Small Town USA"

Justin Moore is Chris' favorite artist... It shows. He SWEEPS! He's up to 35. Allie needs 10 to tie for the lead.

- 1975, James Taylor, "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)"

Allie missed ONE. That puts her at 43. Danielle needs that much to tie.

- 1997, Tim McGraw, "Where the Green Grass Grows"

Danielle ... delivers the tie for 43. Harold needs 12 to take the lead and move on.

- 2009, Lady Antebellum, "Need You Now".

Im. PLOSION. Harold gets two, and Allie and Danielle are moving on to see who is the strongest of the Army Strong in...


Allie qualified first, so she gets the honor with this song... and no option. Strange.

- 2002, Phil Vassar, "American Child"

Allie: "Was an American child." Extra word! Danielle has a chance.

- 1978, Willie Nelson, "Whiskey River"

Danielle: "I'm drownin' in a whiskey river"... No, it's "Whiskey river, take my mind". Allie's back in it.

- 1988, Dwight Yoakam with Buck Owens, "Streets of Bakersfield"

Allie: "If you ever walk / On the streets of Bakersfield." "Hey, you don't know me, but you don't like me." That's the lyric. One more chance for Danielle...

- 1984, Alabama, "Roll On (Eighteen Wheeler)"

Danielle: "Roll on Daddy roll on home"... Nope. "Roll on highway, roll on along..." TIEBREAKER!

The tiebreaker is from 1965... Eddie Albert & Eva Gabor. That's Danielle! "I'm gonna PASS it."

- 1965, Eddie Albert & Eva Gabor, "Theme from Green Acres"
BAND: Greeeeeeeeen acres is the place to be / farm livin' is the life for me / Land spreadin' out so far and wide / Keep Manhattan / Just give me that countryside / New York is where I'd rather stay / I get allergic smelling hay / I just adore a penthouse view...
Allie:  ".... keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside." DANIELLE TAKES IT! For the record, it was "Darling, I love you, but give me Park Avenue."

So Danielle backs into the title, but can she take it to the bank? All she has to do is complete five songs correctly. Each one is worth $500 cash money dollars. 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. Five, four, three two one... It's time to play...


Song #1: Oh say does that star spangled / Banner yet wave / O'er the land of the free...

Danielle: "And the home of the brave." If you missed that one, we would've had to kick you out of the joint.

(1996, Ricochet, "The Star-Spangled Banner")

Song #2: But when a nurse came in / With a little pink blanket / All those big dreams changed / now he's wrapped around her finger / She's the center of his whole world / And his heart belongs to that / Sweet little beautiful wonderful...

Danielle: "perfect All American girl." And another!

(2007, Carrie Underwood, "All-American Girl)

Song #3: You better be careful what you say / It never really added up any way / I got friends in this town / Hey white liar the truth comes out a little...

Danielle: "At a time." Three for three!

(2009, Miranda Lambert, "White Liar")

Song #4: I fold it up and put it in my shirt / Pick up my gun and get back to work / and it keeps me driving on waiting on...

Danielle: "Letters from home." ONE MORE!

(2004, John Michael Montgomery, "Letters from Home")

Song #5: Now I'm just rolling home / into my lover's arms / This much I know is true / That God blessed the broken road...

Danielle: "That led me straight to you." $10,000 SWEEP!

(2004, Rascal Flatts, "Bless the Broken Road")



More music and more money next time. Until then, remember... You don't have to sing it well... you just have to sing it RIGHT! AIRBORNE!
