NTN Encore Question of May 15th, 2010.
I wasn't playing this week. My friends played at The Squire & Firkin in Etobicoke York, Ontario.
Thanks to poman from the Scatatings message board for the recap.

Headliner:...ELVIS PRESLEY over Frank Sinatra and Bob Marley

Encore Question:...Elvis Presley had a Top 20 hit on the charts with which of these James Taylor songs?

I went to a local soccer game for the supper hour. It would have been possible to stop at a bar to play Playback but I wanted to get home and type up a game report as I had a few games to attend the next day. I had been to a Photo trade show with another friend earlier in the day so that was long enought to be away from home.

Correct Answer:....5. Steamroller Blues

Rob COSMO won the game at 48K. The bar was 22nd in North America which was great to not even have five boards.

I would have got this answer. It's such an unusual title it's stuck with me all these years.

I wouldn't have studied for this game as Elvis and Frank Sinatra had more than a hundred hits each plus there could be questions about their movie careers. I wouldn't have built up much momentum in the Headliner round.
