Pitbull’s latest dance fare gets parodied by Questlove and Captain Kirk Douglas on ‘Fallon’

Cover of the Day: 'Timber' by Black Simon and Garfunkel

In this article…

One of the things I desperately hope continues when Jimmy Fallon takes over The Tonight Show is the irregular appearances of folk legends Black Simon and Garfunkel. Portrayed wonderfully by Questlove and Captain Kirk Douglas of The Roots, the group plays mini-folk covers of Top-40 tracks. Their collection of hits is steadily growing, and last night they performed another gem: Pitbull's "Timber." 

My favorite part in all of their performances is the ending, when they transition into the rousing climax of white Simon and Garfunkel's "The Boxer." Watching Questlove make an explosion with his hands and audibly make the PSSSHHHH sound and just adding any part of a Simon and Garfunkel song to the Top 40 garbage their covering always amuses me. Let's hope the prime late night audience is ready for Black Simon and Garfunkel, because these guys need to keep making appearances.
