Played at The Frog & Firkin in North York Ontario.

Answers:

  1. Hurts So Good
  2. If You Leave
  3. Endless Love
  4. Don't You (Forget
  5. Turning Japanese

Tonight I'm playing with two boards as ROCKET and LITBOX with Rob COSMO, Sean METLCA, and Phil PLBAAB.

My game so far had gone like this:
TuneUp...ROCKET...5000/5000...1st/8...my two and METLCA and COSMO win round.  
..........LITBOX...5000/5000...1st/8.
I went 1 for 1 in guessing.
OnBeat...ROCKET...12000/14000...1st/8...the five of us co-win round.  
..........LITBOX...12000/14000...1st/8.
7 right and 2 wrong was alright but I could have had one more but I'd read it last month and forgot.
JukeBox...ROCKET...17122/20000...3rd/8...COSMO wins round. 
...........LITBOX...17122/20000...3rd/8.
I was outvoted on one of the Canada category questions for Soundtracks.  The three others are movie buffs
but we couldn't get the answer until the last clue.  I'm sure we could have had the Canada answer for top marks.
The second Canada question was Trooper.  I felt a bit better when a 'Musical Siblings' question turned out
to be The DeFranco Family which was like an extra Canadian question for me.
Triviaoke...ROCKET...23643/28000...3rd/8...COSMO wins round.
.........LITBOX...23663/28000...2nd/8.
I didn't take a -250 this round.  Rob steered me off one with a few seconds to go.

Now the Encore answers come up. Quite a variety of song titles. I know these artists but what would be the question?

Encore Question:..."I touch you once, I touch you twice, I won't let go at any price". What's the song?

Rob gives out the answer right away. "Don't You Forget About Me". Another Triviaoke question though which I don't like. OK we're all in. I start working through the songs. "Turning Japanese" is about masterbation I say because it's a song some of the others haven't heard. With ten seconds to go I've got the tune of these lyrics. Should I change because Rob is so sure? Now my mental chorus. It is "If You Leave". I say I'm going to change and do with only three seconds to spare.

Correct Answer:....2. If You Leave

[NTN Extra Fact:...The OMD song is found on the 'Pretty In Pink' soundtrack.]

I'm right and win as LITBOX. I finish 6th in North America with 35494. The bar is 306th in North America. I earn 3000+ points for making this week's standard of 19000 points. I place 2nd on this bar's Hall of Fame Top 10 for best scores in the last year. [ntn.com moved our bar up to 36th out of 1887 bars with a 25793 average].

Rob says he thought '2' was the Chicago song "If You Leave Me Now". We are given black touques with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Molson's brewery emblems on them and ballots to fill out just before the Encore question for a bit of a distraction. The hockey team had won tonight but it took until I got home tonight to find out they were out of the playoffs anyway because the teams ahead of them won their own games. I had to mention on my way out that I'd been on television on Tuesday at a press conference for a soccer tournament. No speaking part.

Here's how the rest of the bar did:
