Favorite win cues
« on: January 12, 2019, 01:10:34 AM »
One of my favorite modern win cues is the car alarm sound used when someone on H2 found the key that started the car. Hearing that car alarm sound just excites me. I remember only one instance where someone had tried for the car multiple times but failed. Then they eliminated all the bad keys except one.

It would've been cool if I could've gotten a clean copy of the win cue on Hollywood Squares with John Davidson. I think there had been a music cue along with some alarm sound.

Sale of the Century: Love the alarm sound used when all the bonus prizes are won. It's also used on Scrabble when someone wins the Scrabble Sprint by getting 2 words right within 10 seconds or less.

Supermarket Sweep.   The bells and sirens used when contestants found the product in the market with the $5,000.00 in 60 seconds or less.  This sound effect was also used when the tag for the power prize was found in the late 80s kids' show Fun House.

One of mine, in terms of music (not sound/visual effects) was the bonus-round win cue used on "The Joker's Wild" during the 1977-78 season (also, apparently, used during the 1974-75 season on CBS). It was a Dixieland-sounding number, composed by Alan Thicke.

That Dixieland win cue on TJW was awesome. Same goes for the 4 note game win cue on TTD, along with the longer fanfare used when a player wins the car, or wins the bonus round. I noticed that Scrabble used about maybe 4 different fanfares.

Super Password had some great ones as well.

Honorable mention goes to the music cue used on the "Hot Potato" pilot when the winning team made it through the 5 questions to double their bonus round winnings to $6,400. The same cue was used on Play the Percentages when the bonus round was won.

The special winning theme on Sale of the Century that played whenever the champion won everything plus the grand prize cash jackpot, as well as when they won the car or $10,000 off the Winner's Board; it had a nice triumphal quality to it.

.......and end thread!!!!! (I almost mentioned this one!) The late Mitt Dawson, who worked on the SOTC crew, managed to save this cue after the show wrapped production...if you want to hear it clean, here you go!

Another one is when a kid on Wheel 2000 wins the bonus round. Lots of alarms & sirens.

When $1,000,000 was won later in season 1 of $1,000,000 Chance of a Lifetime.  Everything about the winning sequence, including the epic win theme, clangs, sirens, and pyrotechnics (and of course confetti) made it to me one of the best game show winning sequences:

The obligatory “Press Your Luck” inclusion and “The Joker’s Wild” from 1990 had a good one.

The '75- '83 WOF puzzle solve and the $otC $3K Winner's Board (sometimes used as an Instant Bargain music bed) on my side.

There's one Classic Concentration win cue that I have always loved. (I have not, however, watched enough episodes of the show to remember if they ever did use it.)

The cue I'm thinking of has a revamped trumpet riff as opposed to the standard version derived from the main theme.
Yes, I still use VHS. But I've switched to recording the show in HD with a capture card.

It turns out I've been missing a lot over the years.

I meant to make a reference to the car starting on Hollywood Squares with John Davidson
