Re: Monday, January 24, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't remember the Prince song just went by 1999. I'm assuming "Party Like It's 1999 Bottles of Beer on the Wall" would slide by? Maybe not. All the other correct responses just had the year followed by some verbiage. But this was the first clue and I didn't know how it worked. Songs a...

If there's room on the poll, I'm curious how many knew the nickname of Mozart's 41st symphony. I picked that trash up from podium 4. Whoever gets that definitely has The Right Stuff. What's the connection? IMDB says The Right Stuff has the Jupiter movement from Holst's Planets, but no Mozart. I kee...

If the powers want Amy's streak to go longer it's easy enough to increase the odds through casting choices.
