Jimmy Fallon, the constantly breaking comedian and now late night talk show host, has put together another collection of fun songs, and released a new record, Blow Your Pants Off.
The album opens with a few performances from the show, including Jimmy’s dead on impression of Neil Young covering the theme song to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. As with all of Jimmy’s impressions, the voice is so close, the listener can close his or her eyes and be fooled into thinking it’s the real thing.
One of the highlights of the record is finally having a recording of the original “Yesterday” lyrics, from when Paul McCartney first wrote the song and it was still “Scrambled Eggs.” Legend has it when Paul first wrote the iconic Beatles song, he filled in silly lyrics to fit the melody, and they involved scrambled eggs somehow. It is likely they added a few things to make the song funnier, but this was a lost gem until Jimmy resurrected it on his late night show.
The album continues to run through Jimmy’s supernatural impressions of Bob Dylan, Jim Morrison, and David Bowie, to name a few. The album wastes no time at all, keeping the listener laughing throughout its entire run time.
Here is Jimmy doing Dylan:
Though the album is essentially all material heard on the late night show, it is still a fun addition to any collection, and fun to be able to listen to all of the legendary moments of the show again and again. I would highly recommend picking up a copy of the record.
