Throwback Thursday: Phil Collins – “In The Air Tonight” (Live With The Roots)

Because how else do you make one of the greatest ballad classics of all time better?

Oh yeah, if you add Mike Tyson. Oh Well, missed opportunity, QUESTO!

Humpday Hymn: D’Angelo – “Sometimes It Snows In April” (Live Prince Cover)

At the 5 minute mark of this video is the start of the 3rd verse in this Prince classic. It’s also when it all came crashing down in a brief overwhelming moment. D’Angelo and Questlove have always shared a deep affinity for Prince’s friendship, general ridiculousness, and mostly his music.
Knowing that Questo’s in the same room watching him sing “maybe he’s found another friend” is enough to break any man or woman but, D held it together to finish the ballad with help from Princess (Maya Rudolph apparently???). I can’t imagine how heavy it was to perform an ode Prince wrote to a friend gone too soon in April almost 30 years later as Prince’s friend, Prince now being that friend. It was a hell of a palpable sight to see and here even on a screen.

P.s.
Last night, I mistakenly posted the day’s selection AFTER watching this. My concentration was questionable. You now have a double shot of #HumpdayHymn

Watch The Donald Impression To Trump Them All, Jimmy Fallon’s

That’s it! Everybody quit while you’re ahead! The Tonight Show will take it from here on out, folks. Stephen Colbert’s Trump was promising, and more subtle…but sorry, Stephen. Leave the Donald to the pros. You may have heard of Trump’s comments on Fox’s Megyn Kelly “bleeding from her you know what” over the weekend. Jimmy wants to set the record straight on that. This here, folks, is about as spot on as Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin. America, can we agree to put up with Trump’s hogwash as long as it provides material for Jimmy to bring us more? Watch, Die, and go to Pun Heaven – you DEVIANTS 😉 :

Watch Jamie Foxx’s Uncanny John Legend, Mick Jagger, And More Impressions

“I won an Oscar and a Grammy, and I’m sleepin witcha mammyyy”

That used to be one of the promo-spots for Jamie’s FoxxHole Radio Sirius Satellite channel.  Its easy to see and hear why Foxx was worthy of at least two of those, when he stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots.  Whether its John Legend’s impression of the “Toys R Us theme”, or L.A. Clippers coach Doc Rivers’ dead on hoarse-since-a-baby voice and mannerisms – its easy to see why Foxx is the most dynamic talent in Showbiz (and why its definitely NOT BLAKE’S FAULT).  JUST WATCH THIS till the end, where it looks like he’s not sure where to take a Jennifer Hudson challenge, but then…
