Two funny videos in two days? I know! And I’m sorry! But this is too good to not share:

If you need some context, here’s the original song by a one Willow Smith.

Can we all agree that Jimmy Fallon is easily the coolest person on TV today? With a close second going to ?uestlove? (Okay, ?uestlove’s probably cooler, sure, but how ’bout that Neil Young impression?! Wow.)

Hey everyone! It’s hard to believe, but this is our 400th post here at WiAC. Kind of crazy, I know. And I couldn’t think of better news to grace this very historic post (not really), than the news that Josh Ritter just released a free song on his website – a cover of an old Hedy West song called “500 Miles” (no, not that 500 Miles). It’s pretty lo-fi, very pretty, and features Dawn Landes on vocals. Check it out:

Link: Josh Ritter & Dawn Landes – 500 Miles (Hedy West cover)

And because just a single link didn’t seem like a sufficient milestone post, here’s a few other Josh Ritter covers that I happen to love. Thanks for reading guys! Hope to see you all in 400 more!*

mp3: Josh Ritter – Blame It On The Tetons (Modest Mouse cover)

mp3: Josh Ritter – Mexican Home (John Prine cover)

mp3: Josh Ritter – Moon River (Johnny Mercer/Henry Mancini cover)

mp3: Josh Ritter & Sarah Harmer – Long May You Run (Neil Young cover)

mp3: Josh Ritter – Chelsea Hotel No. 2 (Leonard Cohen cover)

mp3: Josh Ritter – Daddy’s Little Pumpkin (John Prine cover) – live

mp3: Josh Ritter – The River (Bruce Springsteen cover) – live

mp3: Josh Ritter & Blake Hazard – Tonight You Belong to Me (Billy Rose/Lee David cover)

mp3: Bridget Matros & Josh Ritter – Angel From Montgomery (John Prine cover)

*actually “hope to see you” is pretty loose for “hope you’re still reading this little blog on the internet anonymously” – but that sounds a lot less pleasant…

Just for the record, Conan will always be The Tonight Show host for me, in my heart. And Andy Richter will always be his sidekick. In my heart. And that version of “Freebird”? With Ben Harper, Beck, ZZ Top, Will Ferrell, The Tonight Show band, and oh yeah! Conan shredding it on guitar? Yeah that will also be in my heart. Forever.

Watch Will Ferrell and Conan O’Brian (and Beck and Ben Harper and ZZ Top etc. etc.) play “Freebird” at Funny Or Die

Watch Neil Young play “Long May You Run” (tear) RIGHT HERE:

But seriously. Between that song and Conan’s choked up admonition to work hard and be kind, that was the most teary-eyed I’ve ever been during late night television. Long may you run, Coco. Long may you run.
