Tonight I'm playing with two boards as ROCKET and LITBOX, with Rob COSMO, Sean METLCA, and Phil PLBAAB with Rob also playing LeAnne's board MS M.

My game so far had gone like this:
TuneUp...ROCKET...5000/5000...1st/7...my two boards, COSMO, METLCA and MS M win round with LEAFS at 5000.
...........LITBOX...5000/5000...1st/7...we don't need any guessing this week.
OnBeat...ROCKET...12000/14000...1st/7...my two boards, COSMO, METLCA and MS win round.
..........LITBOX...12000/14000...1st/7...I go 7 for 9 in this round with help on one question.  Two pretty obscure 
questions tripped me up.  A Roy Orbison named beetle and Tom Jones insuring his chest hair were 
things I hadn't heard.
JukeBox...ROCKET...17995/20000...2nd/7...LITBOX wins round with a  full 6000.
...........LITBOX...18000/20000...1st/7.
Triviaoke...ROCKET...25676/28000...2nd/7...ROCKET wins round.
...........LITBOX...25680/28000...1st/7...I didn't take any -250 scores this round.  I got help on one 
hich I didn't know right away.

Now the Encore answers come up. I say it first...that they're all Peter Gabriel songs.

Encore Question:...What was Peter Gabriel's first Top 40 hit as a solo artist?

.

Phil says an answer before the questions even come back up. "Solsbury Hill". Did that ever hit the Top 40?, I'm wondering. The answers come back on. Well I know 'Sledgehammer' was his only #1 hit. That but 'Steam' and 'Big Time' after that so they're not it. "Shock The Monkey" was the earliest and Phil is saying "It's either 1 or 2". Well alright then, we're all in for #1. I know it made the local charts in my city as a Top 10 but did it make the American charts as a Top 40?

Correct Answer:....1. Shock The Monkey

[NTN Extra Fact:..."Shock The Monkey" hit #29 in 1982.]

I'm right and stay in 1st with LITBOX at 38520. The bar finishes 15th in North America with 36101. I finish 20th in North America on the Network Top 20. I earn 3000+ points for making this week's standard of 18000. I earn 1st place on this bar's Hall of Fame and we now have the seven top spots in the seven times we've ever played here.
(ntn.com kept us in 15th place out of 1858 bars)
