The song “Fancy” might belong to Iggy Azalea, but Crosby, Stills, Nash & [Neil-]Young-wannabe Jimmy Fallon are totally giving her a run for her money.
It’s a known fact that Fallon is obsessed with Neil Young — just look at his impersonation of the Canadian singer as he belts out Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA,” Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” and the theme song of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Now he’s back — with Young’s old gang of Crosby, Stills, Nash — to lay waste to all other versions of Azalea’s 2014 hit “Fancy.”
Their cover of the hip hop hit is nothing short of amazing. Who knew that a song about swagger and “takin’ all the liquor straight, never chase that (never)” could sound so sweet?
Next time, Fallon needs to find a way to get Young in on this. The only thing better than watching Crosby, Stills, Nash & [Neil-]Young-wannabe Jimmy Fallon transform hip hop songs into sweet melodies would be to see the real Neil Young up there as well.
