‘I Lost on Jeopardy’ by Weird Al Yankovic – Classic Hit or Miss

“I Lost on Jeopardy” is a song by “Weird Al” Yankovic from his second album, “Weird Al” Yankovic in 3-D. The song is a parody of “Jeopardy” by The Greg Kihn Band, and its refrain “Our love’s in jeopardy”. The parody’s lyrics center on the then-former game show Jeopardy!, hosted by Art Fleming; a syndicated revival, with Alex Trebek, began three months after the single’s release.The song became the fourth music video released by Yankovic, and featured a number of cameo appearances including Kihn, Fleming, Yankovic’s mentor Dr. Demento, original Jeopardy! announcer Don Pardo, and Yankovic’s parents.

The song has been referenced several times on the game show itself, including once as a category on the current Alex Trebek-hosted version, and later when Yankovic appeared on Rock & Roll Jeopardy!. It was the subject of a Daily Double on the April 27, 2012 episode of the show, but the contestant didn’t identify the song given the year it came out and some lyrics from it. The song was played over the closing credits on the second episode of Rock & Roll Jeopardy! on which Yankovic appeared.
