Doug: Which brings me to a radio version of the show. I am most certain it was just a local promotion -- nothing that might have been in syndication. But as you might guess, the DJ took two callers, would read a little trivia about the song and/or artist, and then ask one contestant to begin with "I can name that tune in X notes." Of course the other contestant would get a rebuttal, where he or she could lower their guess requirements by a note. Well, one time I about caused an accident because both contestants went through the obligatory bravado until the got to "in one note!" And then the DJ played that one note -- which if I could play it for you now most of you would probably get it -- and both contestants choked! I was screaming at the radio while I was driving... now who's the fool? Well, below the Name That Tune clip I've included the entire song of which neither of those bozos could name. Hear that distincitive first note -- as I said, you'd have gotten it!
Doug: Today we want to do a little BAB variation on this. What are songs you could name in 1-2 notes, regardless of the place in the song? Are there some very memorable guitar licks at the beginning of some songs that zero you in immediately? And can you name a song with something so distinctive in it that it would just be a dead giveaway for you if you heard only that part?
