Encore question of September 9th, 2000.
Played at The Frog & Firkin in North York Ontario.


  1. James Taylor
  2. David Bowie
  3. Keith Sweet
  4. Bruce Dickinson
  5. Don Henley

Tonight I'm playing with Richard BERGIE, Bill MADDOG, Kimmo KAV, and a different Bill OH YA. Richard must have given me at least four OnBeat round answers I wouldn't have known so I could finish 9 for 9 in the round I find the most difficult.

My game so far had gone like this:
TuneUp....3500/5000...12th/20...ELVIS wins with a 5000 round.
OnBeat...12500/15000...3rd/20...ROCKET, OH YA, and MADDOG win round with 9000. Thanks
JukeBox...18446/20000...3rd/20...At least three of The Regulars win round but MADDOG takes
Triviaoke...24247/28000...2nd/20...JARVIS wins round and holds lead with 24661.

So the Encore answers come up. "Keith Sweet? They must mean Keith Sweat!" I say but that's the first place I bookmark my music book. Nope, I have to stop myself from reading in the other player's scores in my micro recorder and so I bookmark James Taylor too.

Question:...On his "Actual Miles" compilation, he criticized America in "Garden of Allah".

I don't know this. Richard thinks it might be Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson. I can't find the album under Keith Sweat nor James Taylor. Kim MOLSON/VIKING from The Regulars comes over to ask if we know then says never mind. Would an English guy criticize the United States says Richard later? Too late to look for anything else. I'm in for '4'.





Correct Answer:...5 Don Henley

[NTN extra fact:...On his new track, the devil comes to America to find he's no longer needed.]

I'm wrong but only fall to 3rd place. I finish with 12123 points. Since the final rankings of our bar's top 10 finishers only cycle through once, I'm unsure of my overall ranking but it's probably 5900 something. I earn only 1500+ Players Plus points for not meeting this week's 19000 point standard. Joe ENIGMA came out of 8th place to win as I expect The Regular's split their answers. Our bar is 1044th.

Here's how the rest of the bar did:
