In honor of the release of Sting’s “Duets” album the famed rock star appeared on “Jeopardy!” last night and gave clues from a category named for him! As guest host Katie Couric said, “That was so cool!” It was!
Sting also sang a version of the “Jeopardy!” theme song, putting words to the music at the end of the show.
“Duets” is out today with so many great pairings, but my favorite is one I was actually lucky enough to see recorded in 2006: “None of Us Are Free,” with R&B Rock Hall of Fame star Sam Moore.
Sting loved the song but we did discuss that as an English teacher he might want to sing “None of IS Free”– proper grammar. But he went with the writer’s version (Brenda Russell co-wrote it with legends Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil in 1993). The recording was made for Moore’s “Overnight Sensational” album, and is below, as well the the clips from “Jeopardy!”
