Black Simon & Garfunkel (AKA Questlove and “Captain” Kirk Douglas) made a surprise re-appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon yesterday (January 16) and delighted with another kooky cover version. After lifting Katy Perry‘s “Roar” to new heights on their last visit, the duo decided to do Ke$ha and Pitbull a solid by interpreting “Timber”.
Who knew Mr. Worldwide’s poetry (“I have ‘em like Miley Cyrus clothes off, twerkin’ in their bras and thongs”) could sound so beautiful over a strummed guitar? The chorus also makes the folk-transition effortlessly — underlining the skills of Black Simon & Garfunkel and the fact that “Timber” is actually a really great song. Watch up top.
Do you like this version of “Timber”? You be the judge in the comments below.
