It was Bruce Springsteen Night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

on January 15, 2014, 8:49am

 
Jimmy Fallon loves himself some Bruce Springsteen, and the feeling’s pretty mutual. Only Fallon could get The Boss to dress up like a 1970s version of himself and cover Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair”, or don his 1980s bandana for a take on LMFAO’s “Sexy And I Know It”. When Wrecking Ball was released, Fallon dedicated an entire week to Springsteen. With High Hopes hitting retailers yesterday, Fallon welcomed Springsteen back on the program last night for a 100% Boss episode.

The episode kicked off with another instant classic of a parody, as both Springsteen and Fallon donned Born in the USA-era Springsteen garb and poked fun at New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s current predicament with a revamped version of “Born to Run”.”You got Wall Street masters stuck cheek to cheek with blue collar truckers, but man I really got to take a leak, Bruce sang. “But I can’t I’m stuck in Governor Chris Christie’s’ Fort Lee traffic jam.”

The interview portion saw Springsteen discuss his 50-year career in music and biggest inspirations. He revealed he often finds himself awake at 3am searching for new music and that he’s a big fan of Miley Cyrus’ version of “Wrecking Ball”. He also spoke about his pre-show ritual (and how he doesn’t do vocal exercises), and showed off his ridiculous 64-year-old physique by challenging Fallon to a push-up contest, leading to the incredible GIF you see below. Can you guess who won?

Springsteen then supported High Hopes with a three-song performance, including “High Hopes”, “Heaven’s Wall”, and “Just Like Fire Would”. He was accompanied by Tom Morello and the E Street Band.

Three guitars mimic John Lennon’s Rickenbacker 325, George Harrison’s Gretsch Duo Jet guitar, Paul Mc – Cartney’s Hofner bass, and a drum set based around the
drum set of none other than Ringo Starr himself.
The vertical bandsaw on the other hand keeps the blade.
Let’s take London as an example; while the majority of the city received blanket 3G, there remain pockets that are limited
to 2G connectivity and even the odd black spot on the outskirts of the city.
