Jimmy Fallon has built a comedy career on his uncanny impersonations, and even more so since given the five-nights-a-week platform on NBC’s Late Night. He has performed several parody songs that proved popular enough to “go viral” and even prompted the Boss, Bruce Springsteen, to join Fallon as Bob Dylan for a couple of duets.
Now Fallon is building upon that solid singing foundation by releasing a full-length album Blow Your Pants Off on June 12, 2012. His second album includes both original content as well as his late-night parody hits, and features guest vocals from the likes of Springsteen, Sir Paul McCartney, Justin Timberlake, Eddie Vedder and more.
The title is self-explanatory and proven, according to Fallon. “So far everyone that’s heard the album had their pants blown off. There’s nothing that we can do about it,” he said.
Moreover, fans of old-school 7-inch vinyl can celebrate Record Store Day by snatching up a limited-release that pairs “Tebowie” (his Tim Tebow/David Bowie mashup) with a B-side parody of the “Reading Rainbow” theme song as sung by The Doors. Where to go for Record Store Day?
And here’s “Reading Rainbow.”
