The 3-year search to identify a 17-second song clip has been solved

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "EVERYONE KNOWS THAT (ULTERIOR MOTIVES)")

CHRISTOPHER DAVID BOOTH: (Singing) You're counting all your sheep in disguise.

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

One Reddit user found it was credited to Christopher and Philip Adrian Booth, who premiered the tune in an adult film. Mmm-hmm.
