  2. Private Eyes
  3. So Emotional
  4. Rich Girl
  5. Maneater

Tonight I've got a slight lead after regaining it with three Triviaoke questions to go. I was the winner of the JukeBox and Triviaoke rounds and cowinner or the TuneUp round. I have 18837 points which is just ahead of EXILES (this time his wife is with him) with 18074. With 50% of my points risk I didn't even need to see the question when I saw these answers.

Question: These were all #1 singles for Daryl Hall and John Oates except:

That's two weeks in a row of 'who DIDN'T sing this' style. No thinking after seeing a Whitney Houston song mixed in here. I press #3.

Correct Answer: 3 So Emotional

I win with 28255 points. I gain 2000 Players Plus points. I finish in 936th place in North America in what must be considered an easy Encore question. The bar is 832nd. 5 of 8 players in bar were right.

The band tonight was 'Medicine Man' who were a quartet who played pop covers. I came with my friend Rick early for a StarTrek party (I don't watch that show) and also at the bar were a wrap up party for a coed baseball league. I was sitting too far away from a monitor to see without squinting until I moved up for the Playback game. My friend left his van at my place and seemed to have to leave at 8 minutes to the hour for him to pick up some of the prizes. I came home right after the Playback game but the van was still there. I didn't go back as I was still waiting for him. Except for Playback, no other game is important to me. I was ready to mingle but ended up staying home.
