NTN Encore Question of January 21st, 2006.
Played at Joe Mercury's Bar & Grill in Toronto, Ontario.
Tonight I'm playing with one board as ROCKET with Rob COSMO, Sean METLCA, and Phil PLBAAB. One Playmaker each is the limit here. The bar started the Karaoke one hour early tonight so that meant we had to struggle to hear each other over the racket. Since there was a party, the bar had reserved the whole row of center tables for the guests who mostly stayed at the other side of the bar around the pool tables while we were squashed over near the window squinting at the monitor.
My game so far had gone like this: TuneUp...ROCKET...4000/5000...2nd/11...METCLA wins round. I'm in a four way tie for 2nd. I guessed 1 for 3 for answers I didn't know. OnBeat...ROCKET...13000/14000...1st/11...I win round at 9 for 9. Rob and Phil were a help here. I get one more than the others by picking a reggae tribute album for Elvis Presley. JukeBox...ROCKET...16633/20000...2nd/11...METLCA wins round and has lead with 16785. The bar was hurt on this one by voting twice for the category 'The 1960s' and having obscure R'n'B songs asked. Triviaoke...ROCKET...22351/28000...2nd/11...TCB wins round. I took only one -250 this round. Rob was the big help here getting to answers before I even read the choices.
Now the Encore answers come up. Country artists. Oh oh. Not what I'm good at.
Encore Question:...What Country star sings "I May Hate Myself In The Morning"?
Before the answers came back up I say "I know it's a woman". I've seen the video for this and I know the women it's not. Wait for the answers...."It's 4". Am I sure?...was their response. Yeah. I saw this when I played back through the CMT Top 50 videos of the year that ran during the Christmas week. I thought this video gave the opposite message from Gretchen Wilson's "When I Think About Cheating" (which message was "I won't"). I also know it wasn't Faith Hill. Somebody's left to sing this cheatin' song which so many classic Country songs are about. Make all the possible answers women and they might have fooled me (instead of two guys maybe thrown in for the quiz writers thinking about these two guys who have sang drinking/hangover songs over the years).
Correct Answer:....4. Lee Ann Womack
[NTN Extra Fact:...The song was named "2005 Single Of The Year" by The Country Music Association.]
Thanks to Steven/SEKA of the Playback message board as I didn't have time to read this bit.
