Correct response: What is Hotel California?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Hotel California is a famous 1976 album by Eagles. Charley Walters wrote the album’s review for Rolling Stone. He goes on to say “Don Henley, handling five of the eight vocal tracks, expresses well the weary disgust of a victim (or observer) of the region’s luxurious excess.” Later in the review, Walters says, of the album’s title track, it “incorporates a pinch of reggae so smoothly that it’s more felt than heard.”
The album is among the top-selling albums of all time.
Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well! All proceeds from any “Keep The Faith And We’ll Win” shirt sold will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. To date, over $370 has been raised.)
