There was a U2 category on Jeopardy last night...

It was "U2 songs in other words" and the clues were the titles of various U2 songs...in other words. For instance, one was something like Dizziness, Hitchcock Style (What is Vertigo?).

Seeing the category I thought I'd do an awesome job but it took me a while to decipher some of them

I used to watch Jeopardy but I didn't no anything in a bunch of the categories mainly the types of alcoholic drinks and foods. I think I would of been good at this. If you remember any of the other clues you should post them or come up with some.

I got all but the last one. Really confusing clue! Of course I'm sitting in the comfort of my home without shiny lights and Alex Trebek's snotty attitude to distract me...

Actually I think this episode is a repeat, because I recall a U2 category earlier in the year

Totally missed the Brit and Yank one, but got the rest of them.

"No no no, that's an album cover."

Yeah, I think it was a repeat. I always hope for U2-related answers so it was cool to have an entire category devoted to them.

Searching through that website, J-Archive, you can find past answers related to them (there was a final jeopardy question at one point that asked which two men, both christened Paul, toured Africa a few years back.)

Also, I just searched the archive for "pride" and "love" because I figured they had to have asked a question about Pride and MLK. Turns out they did, and it was in a category completely about U2 from 1999! (Gotta search for stuff like that because "U2" is too short of a phrase to perform a search for, unfortunatly).

http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.ph...ght=pride+love

That should link you to the page with the category.

Kind of an obscure song but it would have been if that had been the question. Make those people work for that $2,000!
