What’s This Song?
What's This Song? is a game show airing daytime on NBC. It originated on radio in 1939 as What's the Name of This Song? then began a run on Los Angeles TV in 1949, running some ten years. It was revived on Los Angeles TV in February 1964 then was optioned for NBC that October.
Two celebrity-civilian teams competed. A portion of a song is performed. The first team must identify it. If right, they score 20 points then must sing the first two lines of the chorus for 20 more points. (Incorrect guesses deduct 20 points.) if the other team thinks the sung lyrics are incorrect, they may challenge and sing the chorus for 20 points.
First team to 100 points wins and plays the Minute Medley, trying to identify ten songs beginning with a specified letter in one minute, with each correct guess worth $20. Getting all ten wins $200 and a plane trip anywhere in North America. Teams play best two-out-of-three matches.
