Tonight I'm doing a bit better than last week but trail all The Regulars. I'm playing with Bill MADDOG and Dave COITUS. Another bad week in TuneUp and I go six right, three wrong in OnBeat to be almost 5000 points behind them by the second round.

Here's how my game had gone so far:
TuneUp....3500/5000...10th/15...MADDOG, OLE JR, JARVIS, ALKIE, and KELLY win with 4500.
OnBeat...8750/14000...9th/15...OLE JR, JARVIS, ALKIE, and KELLY have 13500 points.
JukeBox...14734/20000...9th/15...ELVIS wins with 19000.
Triviaoke...21462/28000...9th/15...ELVIS wins and holds lead with 26215. 

So tonight's Encore may be something about the movies. I heard a Henry Mancini song on my car radio today 'The Pink Panther Theme'. Bill Conti did the Rocky movies and John Williams for Star Wars. The other two I don't know.

Encore Question:...Which composer wrote the score to "The Abyss" and "The Back To the Future" films?

I've bookmarked Henry Mancini as I knew he was in my book but couldn't find Bill Conti. Wait I can check under the Soundtracks section. I'm in for Maurice Jarre, one of the guys I don't know. 'Back To The Future' had Huey Lewis song The Power Of Love but in my book I found a list of the stars and each song. Later I see there is a listing for the song actually called 'Back To The Future' with the composer but it's too late.

Correct Answer:...1 Alan Silvestri

[NTN Extra Fact:...Silvestri also composed the music for "Tales Of The Crypt" and "Forrest Gump".]

I bought the Forrest Gump video for my mother but that wouldn't have helped with the question.

I'm wrong and finish 11th with 10731 points. I earn only 1500+ Players Plus points for missing this week's 17000 point standard. Dave comes up from 10th place to win as he said he changed his answer with one second left. He said he watched 'The Abyss' on video just three weeks ago but doesn't stay around for the credits so maybe he took it in subliminally. Hey maybe from picking up the box! Kim from The Regulars was over but we didn't know either. They did a bad job of splitting as they all got it wrong. They didn't give Individual rankings but out bar was listed as 412th in North America.

Here's how the rest of the bar did:

ELVIS	26215	x	13108
KELLY	?	x	?
