Jimmy Fallon has scored viral hit after viral hit with his impressions of classic folk-rockers covering iconic TV show themes of the ’80s and ’90s. First there was Neil Young covering the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” theme song, then Bob Dylan singing “Charles in Charge.”
Fallon explains to Leno that — aside from their distinct voices, obviously — the trick is in the harmonica. Where Dylan just blows without abandon into the instrument, Young takes a more discerning approach with a tune and everything.
Who do you think Fallon should tackle next? Obviously “Full House” should be the next theme song, but we’d like to hear someone like Steve Perry (of Journey fame) take on the tune. Or maybe Freddie Mercury, if Fallon’s got the chops.
Watch Fallon explain the distinct differences between his Dylan and Young impressions below.
