From the archives. Hey, make it a party game to play on New Year's Eve. This week's contestant is Beatrice "Bee" Newman from Kapa'a, Hawaii. The short version is that it was a washout for me. Though I did come close on the composer. My guess was the same as the contestant, composer Bruce Adolphe said "You couldn't have been closer, and it could have been that person, it's that close," but it wasn't. As for the song, it's hugely known, very famous, but wonderfully hidden, so I didn't get it. There's one passage that might make it clear to some, but I just wasn't focusing enough to get it.
