GUEST,.gargoyle Origins: Jeopardy Tune (upon death of Alex Trebek) (3) Origins: Jeopardy Tune 08 Nov 20


New York Times interview in 2005 with Merv Griffin regarding
the 30 second Jeopary tune, he said at first "he wrote the melody as a lullaby for his son, Tony, and that it took him under a minute to write it."

The song brought in royalties for Griffin that he said astonished him.

"That little 30 seconds has made me a fortune, millions.
You donít want to know. Probably close to $70-80 million.Ē

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

A quick musical inclusion. Alex deserves better than the lower regions.
