Each tune was worth increasing dollar amounts: The player with the most money after four tunes wins the game and goes on to the bonus game called "The Golden Medley". In the DeWitt era, when there was a tie not possible under the first scoring scheme, except at , both players played as a team.
Games Edit Regularly played sub-games on the show included: Seen only on the Dennis James version, this was a throwback to the original s series; two bells were suspended from the ceiling, with each contestant about 20 feet away. The first contestant to correctly "ring the bell and name that tune" scored.
Five tunes were played, and the player who correctly guessed three or the most tunes won the round and 10 points. A game played only on the daytime series, this one had the contestants shown an assortment of prizes, then alternating between listening to tunes and trying to name them for a prize of their choice each time. The first player to name three tunes won the round and 10 points. Players eliminated words so that only the words in the title remained.
Eight oversized 8-track tapes were displayed, each containing a category, with a corresponding tune played the contestants alternated in choosing. Four of the "cassettes" also contained a bonus prize, which would be awarded to the contestant who named the tune.
Seven tunes were played, and the first player to name four or the most tunes won the round and 10 points. A two-level wheel originally just a one-level wheel was spun onstage to determine a cash prize for identifying the tune. Five tunes were played seven in portions of the Lange version , and the first player to name three out of the five tunes or 4 of 7 won 10 points. If this amount had not been reached after all tunes were played, the points were awarded to the player who had named more tunes correctly.
In case of a tie, five points were given to each contestant on the Kennedy version, while the Lange version later had a final tiebreaker tune played. In the Kennedy version, all contestants win or lose got to keep the cash in this round, but only the winner of Melody Roulette got to keep the cash in the Lange version.
In three of the five pilot shows, the contestants spun the wheels themselves to determine their own fate, one contestant manned the inner wheel, and the other spun the outer.
When it went to series, it was reverted back having Jim do both jobs since the wheel was enlarged. Finally there were originally three "Double" spaces on the outer wheel in the pilots, but it was reduced to one in the series.
This was played in the Kennedy version. The round was removed altogether in This was played only on the short-lived daytime version; the orchestra would play a tune, starting with minimal instrumentation and more gradually added until it became a typical full orchestral arrangement.
Five tunes were played; as usual, the winner received 10 points and a prize package, and a tie saw the points being split, and the 2 players each received the prize package. This round was used in the pilot episodes for the Lange version, and was the replacement for Sing-a-Tune until it was finally scrapped in favor of Tune Topics.
Players simply buzzed in and named tunes for the duration of 20 seconds, with the clock stopping as soon as someone rang in. At the end of 20 seconds, the contestant who had named the most tunes correctly won 10 points and a prize.

Here, the host would read a clue to a song the contestants had a choice of six clues to start minus one for each one used in the last two seasons of the Kennedy version , and the players would alternate bidding as to how few notes they needed to identify the song as in "I can name that tune in three notes". The maximum bid is seven notes.
Bidding ended when one contestant finally challenged the other to "Name That Tune", or when one player bid one note in one pilot episode of the Lange version, the male contestant actually bid zero notes twice, and then correctly identified the tune both times.
The first player to score three tunes occasionally two won 20 points 10 in the last two seasons of the Kennedy version and in the non-finals of the tournament in the Lange version and a prize most often a trip. The player with the most points at the end of the three rounds proceeded to the "Golden Medley" bonus round. If there was a tie at the end of the game, one last tune was played; the first player to buzz-in and name that tune then went to the Golden Medley.
Each correct tune won money for the winning contestant as well as the home viewers. If the contestant gave an incorrect answer at any time during this round, the game ended immediately. However, the player could pass on a tune by buzzing in and saying "pass".
If time remained on the clock after all tunes were played, the contestant could attempt the passed tune s again.
Whether or not a contestant won the Golden Medley, that contestant returned the next day; five-time winners received a car and retired undefeated. This was the only version to have returning champions.
After the contestant exited the booth, Tom then opened the envelope and read the background information and copyright for the song. The tunes were usually songs featuring music that contestants and viewers are familiar with, but whose titles were either unknown or not easily discernible for example, one of the songs was "Fugue for Tinhorns" from Guys and Dolls, but the contestant answered "Can Do", which was part of the lyrics.
In the first two weeks, there were five or six players; it was played like a normal game, except that in Melody Roulette, only the first two players to answer two tunes continued, and the Golden Medley was turned into a competitive game called Golden Medley Showdown the clock stopped when either player buzzed in or five seconds elapsed worth 20 points, while Sing a Tune and Bid a Note each scored 10 points.
Golden Medley Showdown from Add a photo to this gallery In , the mystery tunes were removed, and the show which had switched to a disco set and theme consisted entirely of nine-week "blocks".
After six episodes played in this fashion, the six winners return to play, three at a time, over two episodes; this was played like the tournament except that as Sing-a-Tune was no longer played, Melody Roulette had three players and the first two players to name two tunes played the remaining two games.
A number of celebrity specials filled out the season. Whoever had more points or won a single-tune tiebreaker, if needed advanced to the finals. A Golden Medley win earned that prize for the home viewer while a loss won a consolation prize for the home viewer.
The episode also poked fun at the s quiz show scandals as the Money Tree round had only a few bills on one of the trees, along with Kennedy showing the female contestant most of the answers throughout. While "in-studio" and consolation prize plugs were read normally, various things would happen onscreen, such as certain portions of the art cards being covered up by dots, or the "models" actually male staff members in drag breaking something on the onstage prize.
The episode ended with Kennedy saying goodbye "and up yours! Clocking in at 45 minutes, the episode was never shown on television nor were clips used in any blooper specials for 30 years. The master tape was kept in private collections for years until resurfacing in on a game-show video presentation website, which presented the episode in full with warnings of mature content.
Kennedy asked him why, then told everyone that the security guard forgot the combination, and everyone including Kennedy and Addis broke out in laughter. Jim acknowledged the mistake at the start of Tune Topics.
Hodges went on to appear in "The Music Man," while Glenn became even more famous as an astronaut and senator from Ohio. She also had her own short-lived variety show on CBS in Lange-era contestant Alfred Bogdalioff was noted for heckling female opponent Diana Davis another former Face the Music contestant, then known as Diana Edelman during the game.
This was most obvious during Bid-A-Note, when he said sarcastic things like "Oooooh He also used goofy and at least one potentially offensive hand gestures towards Davis.
Bogdalioff beat Davis in Bid-A-Note and won the game, but failed to win the Golden Medley, naming six of the seven tunes before the 30 seconds ran out. Al Lowe, creator of the Leisure Suit Larry series of computer games, appeared as a contestant.
