Hey! You have a half-hour notice (more depending on your zone o’time) to find out the answer to this important question.

I have mentioned that, under pressure, I declare my favorite song of all time to be Depeche Mode’s “Everything Counts.” If you’d like to know what my favorite song of all time was as a child, please tune in to the Colbert Report tonight to find out. Here’s a hint, the band playing it will be making their first national TV appearance since 1975. And when I say national, I mean the US, since this band is not American.

Please fill in with the music from Jeopardy while you ponder this. Maybe tomorrow I’ll even post video of the answer since it is sure to be all over YouTube. I’d post it myself but I’m not sure my DVR still has room after filling up with 30 hours of the All-Star game.

PS, using Teh Google is not allowed! God will know even if I don’t!

Time’s up! I actually did record it and put it up on YouTube myself. Most comments in a day for any video I’ve ever done (that wasn’t a hard record to break but still). Those ____ fans sure are appreciative. However! This song is so freaking killer, I still got chills while watching the keyboard part after all these years. Yes, I am a loser.

    This is the first time I’m happy to be a day late to the J-Ball. I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy my personal snarkfest during the Colbert Report if I’d been pre-sentimentalized.

    I can’t believe they sound exactly the same, but man, were those close-ups scary….

    How could you snark? There wasn’t anything snarkworthy! If you don’t believe me, check out the commenters on my video. They are DEAD serious, man.

    BTW, I have the #84 music video today. #26 in Canada!

    North, I gotta say, Geddy’s beginning to look a little like my grandmother.
