Michael McDonald and Christopher Cross Do “Ride Like the Wind” with the Roots on Fallon (Video)

     

    On Monday night, Jimmy Fallon celebrated the classy musical movement known as “yacht rock” by having his studio audience don boat captain hats, and having the Roots perform Christopher Cross’ “Run Like the Wind” with help from Cross himself, and the overlord of yacht rock, Michael McDonald. The video is above, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Roots collectively smile so hard.
