Encore Question of April 27th, 2002.
'Played' at The Frog & Firkin in North York Ontario.
Tonight there's noone playing Playback at our bar as my team is all upstairs in The Swamp party room saying goodbye to Nadine our bartender. Sean and Rob (METLCA/COSMO) weren't here this evening and no strangers came into play. I've ducked back downstairs about five minutes early and see the last half of the Triviaoke round and watch the template at the end of the round announce the winner as -blank-.
OK the answers come up and I realize they're all about David Bowie. No book. This could be tough if they expect me to name what album certain songs are from.
Encore Question:...This David Bowie video was banned by the BBC due to a brief nude scene.
No problem as I remember when this came out and remember seeing David Bowie kissing the woman on the beach wishing he'd roll over so I could at least see the China Girl's butt instead of his!
Correct Answer:...4. China Girl
[NTN Extra Fact:...The song was co-penned by long time Bowie collaborator Iggy Pop.]
I don't wait to see the scores as I know I can see the best ones on the NTN site by Monday so I rush back upstairs to the party. Only curiosity is that if I waited until our bar was ranked 'last' I hope I'd find how many bars actually play this game. I'm guessing about 3000-3500?
7:30pm...Countdown...3263/15000...4th/4...500+ points...I'm 7304th in NA...bar is 856th...ROK wins...I'm in time for the last five questions.
8:00pm...Countdown...7806/15000...4th/6...1000+ points...I'm 3998th in NA...bar is 758th.
8:30pm...Countdown...10386/15000...2nd/5...2000+ points...I'm 944th in NA...bar is 390th...ROK(?) wins.
Let's go upstairs for the party!
