Questlove On Kazoo

Carly Rae Jepsen stopped by Jimmy Fallon this week and the band and Jimmy and Carly all sat down and did an acoustic version with instruments you would find in a first grade classroom. They also all made each other laugh.



If you would prefer to watch Obama sing it, then you can watch this version of the song.

The Jimmy version is cute, but I prefer the Barack version. Thanks Enty for giving us choices. :)

I prefer the NPR version.

Dude with the rainbow xylophone was cracking me up. The Obama version is too herky-jerky for me. :(

Watched Jimmy's show, loved it!

Is it just me or does the guy in the back right corner look like Wayne Brady's much cooler brother? I didn't watch the video, but in the still it really does like him to me.

Watched it last night, it was cute!

Beth said...

They looked like they had so much fun doing that!

Lola said...

I adore this song. I don't want to...but I do. It's just so darn catchy. (Plus, she can actually sing without being autotuned- shocking!)

Love JF and this version of the song.

OMAMA is BROKO said...

omama doesn't sip the obama-sheen syrup. sorry.

ANd the roots. they wouldn't support my high end hemp shop I had in their old college town. So I can't stand behind them either.

Omama forgives and understands, but never forgets.

@Omama. I adore your kookiness!!!

That first video was awesome. Is it crazy I've never heard that song before? I've heard of it 1000 times but just thought it was supposed to be a "Friday" type of song. I loved it, she has an amazing voice and the instruments just made it that much cooler. Thanks for the share, Enty! (And JF always has a special place in my heart because of Fever Pitch)

Carly Rae Jepsen came in third in Canadian Idol. No matter what you say about those shows, the competitors have to have good voices to make it near the top. I like the fluffy song, despite the annoyances of the Katy Perry and Bieber versions.

lol @ obama

I love Jimmy Fallon.

ghost said...

God I hate that song. It is inescapable >:(

ABlake said...

Why do we care about Fallon? At the same time, I would say the same about the SNL recaps so maybe I'm just a grump who would be just fine watching a dog playing with a pig.

She just looks like a cool chick I want to hang out with

Monica said...

Loved the jimmy Fallon/The Roots video. LOVE.

Rose said...

Ablake, I care because I think JF is really funny. He is so good at so many different impressions. I actually like when he breaks on camera because it makes me laugh just as hard.

To each their own. I can't say I would be amused by watching a dog playing with a pig, unless they were my own.

I hate this song, but both of these videos made me smile. So it's not all bad. *L*

Never heard the song but I love both videos. Made me smile.

Lelaina Pierce said...

I saw this earlier tonight (Jimmy). Very cute.

I thought Obama was actually going to sing the song. Someone has way too much time on their hands.

Creative use of Obama's speeches. Unfortunately, not an Obama fan at all.

Jimmy Fallon's video made me love this song. She's adorable and can really sing. I find myself singing it thru the day.
