Is that the biggest laugh Alex has gotten on a reveal?

Since Titanic sank in 1912 and the Andrea Doria was launched in 1951, it was 39 years too late.

Can't wait for Season 36, where we'll inevitably see many contestants attempting to imitate James Holzhauer with varying levels of success! It will be a MUST watch.
How's that inevitability and MUST watch working out?

It’s easier when you’ve played golf with the guy. He tells good stories.

I’d say you’re a little more than fashionably late to the party. :lol:

Huh, interesting - the singer of "Raindrops" is a total blind spot for me, but I could instantly could tell you the composer, because I can hear Burt Bacarach's signature horns in both that song and many of his other hits, like Dionne Warwick's "Walk On By".

But in a weird case of "You know him for THAT?!?", I could actually name both people who sang the most common version of the "Growing Pains" theme, and he's one of them - and I can now hear his voice obviously matching up.

See, for me, the Pavlovian B. J. Thomas song is "(Hey Won't You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song".

Mine is the original recording of "Hooked on a Feeling" - before several others ruined it with that silly "Ooga Chaka" nonsense.

Well we actually have seen a couple of good games this season and Jason in particular did give James's strategy a decent imitation, but yeah, sadly not as well as I predicted.

What a way to resurrect an old thread. You would probably like one of BJ Thomas's later hits, whatever happened to old-fashioned love.
