Encore Question of September 10th, 2005.
Played at the Frog & Firkin in North York Ontario.

Answers:

  1. Steal My Sunshine
  2. Josie
  3. She's So High
  4. Hey Leonardo
  5. Wannabe

Tonight I'm playing with three boards as ROCKET and LITBOX and BSTARS (after Windsor Border Stars, a CPSL soccer team that won the Open Canada Cup last weekend). Bill MADDOG had arrived just in time for this game. We didn't have a fifth board.

My game so far had gone like this:
TuneUp...ROCKET...4500/5000...1st/6...ROCKET and BSTARS win round.  
..........LITBOX...3500/5000...3rd/6.
.........BSTARS...4500/5000...1st/6.
I split on two answers and get one answer wrong with a few good guesses.
OnBeat...ROCKET...12500/14000...1st/6...my three boards win round.  
..........LITBOX...11500/14000...4th/6.
.........BSTARS...12500/14000...1st/6.
8 right and 1 wrong was pretty good but I had two lucky guesses. 
JukeBox...ROCKET...17614/20000...1st/6...LITBOX wins round. 
...........LITBOX...16633/20000...3rd/6.
...........BSTARS...17444/20000...2nd/6.
We got the categories we wanted (of course we're going to pick the category 'Canadians') except we didn't 
want either of Ludacris nor My Chemical Romance.
Triviaoke...ROCKET...21372/28000...1st/6.
.........LITBOX...20391/28000...3rd/6.
..........LNCITY...20915/28000...2nd/6.
I took about 3 -250s in this round on the modern songs although I got two of the new songs right.  
Well that feels a lot better than last week.  Now concentrate on the Encore!

Now the Encore answers come up. Song titles. Hey two of them are Canadians.

Encore Question:...This subject of this 1990's hit is likened to Cleopatra, Joan Of Arc, and Aphroditi:

I don't know this. I've been cycling through the lyrics of the Len song "Steal My Sunshine" before the answers came back up, not them. Hmm those women from history. Would it be the girl power group Spice Girls and "Wannabe"? Just doubting that when Bill says it's "She's So High". Wait. Let me hum through that...Yep that's it, right in the chorus. Thanks! Didn't know 'Hey Leonardo' and maybe I'd have realized the Steely Dan song 'Josie' was well before the 1990s. Well let's make sure the other players know. We need the score of that fifth board. They signal they know it. OK.

Correct Answer:....3. She's So High

[NTN Extra Fact:...Tal Bachman is responsible for the 1999 hit].
We'd been waiting for his father's group to be the answer to Canadian quintets in the JukeBox round but The Guess Who wasn't a choice.

Well we sure heard enough of this when it came out. Strange that I was thinking earlier this week about that Norwegian guy who won World Idol last year with a U2 song. His first single though was a cover of "She's So High".

I'm right and win as ROCKET with 32058. I finish 18th in all North America. The bar finishes at 15th with a 26678 average. I earn 3000+ points for making this week's standard which I didn't notice. [ntn.com listed 1480 bars].

Here's how the rest of the bar did: 
Player	preEncore	Final	Rank	ntn.com rank
ROCKET	21372		32058	  18	  41
BSTARS	20915		31372	  23	  50
LITBOX	20391		30586	  32	  65
