“Steppin’ Out” f. The Roots (Live On Fallon) (Video)


    Jimmy Fallon’s (and his music booker’s) long tradition of booking the most random and inappropriate (at least on paper) musical guests on his show continued last night when they had Joe Jackson on to do his ’80s movies staple “Steppin Out.” This would have fit well on that week when they had yacht rock bands, but here Jackson is, in June 2011, performing like he’s the latest buzz band to land a gig on Fallon. But he does get help from the Roots, and in particular from Captain Kirk and ?uestlove, who nail the harmonies in the choruses, while playing their instruments. It will never cease to be awesome to see the Roots do this.
