NTN Encore Question of February 4th, 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. We were back to having our good positioned table tonight.
My game so far had gone like this: TuneUp...ROCKET...4500/5000...2nd/11...METCLA wins round. I'm in a two way tie for 2nd. My board was stuck in the menu of what game to play for the second time tonight so I couldn't register an answer for the first question. Some help from the others mean no guessing was necessary. OnBeat...ROCKET...10500/14000...1st/11...I co-win round at 6 right and 3 wrong. That ties with D R for the lead. Phil calls us off an answer which turned out to be right so we kidded him the rest of the game. I wanted to do better this round but at least got the Canadian Bryan Adams and Sarah Harmer questions right. JukeBox...ROCKET...16455/20000...1st/11...I win this round with almost a perfect run thanks to timely help. Triviaoke...ROCKET...22698/28000...1st/11...I win this round. I took only one -250 this round being called off one answer.
Now the Encore answers come up. Hey I recognize four of these songs. Rob will know this. We give him time to read the question.
Encore Question:...What was the follow up single to Olivia Newton John's 1981 hit "Physical"?
Originally Rob and I laughed that the first song was an Olivia Newton John song. Then I recognized another and another. Rob said they were all her songs. Better than me as I didn't recognize '5'. Rob calls it and we all answer. "You knew that didn't you?" , he asked me. Hmm. No I'm not good at sorting songs. I think playing alone I would have been down to 50/50 between '1' and '3' because '2' and '4' were earlier songs and I wouldn't know '5'. Nope I don't think I would have got it.
Correct Answer:....1. Make A Move On Me
[NTN Extra Fact:...The others were released prior to Physical which spent 10 weeks at #1.]
or something like that.
Rob is a big fan of Olivia Newton John and usually he mentions something or he's teased about it each week. This is strange as at one time Devo was my favourite band and that question was mentioned last week. Well if there's an Encore about Metallica for Sean and then either Nashville Pussy or Tit Fuck Me Jesus (local band) for Phil anytime soon I'll know our bars' have been bugged by the quizwriters.
I'm right and win with 34047. I finish 6th on the Network Top 20 in North America. The bar is 7th with a 27362 average. Too bad we can't have a fifth board to improve the bar average. I earn 3000+ points for meeting this week's 18000 standard. I make 5th in this bar's Hall Of Fame. [NTN.com kept us in 7th place out of 1966 bars].
