Last night, Sir Paul McCartney was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and the host talked him into singing the original version of “Yesterday,” complete with starter lyrics he used until he wrote the real ones. Or at least that’s what they claimed. Who knew waffle fries were so popular in The Beatles’ Britain?
This seems like a perfect example of how Fallon is carving out his own niche in the late night game. Can you imagine Leno or Letterman doing something like this? Or any other late night host, really? OK, maybe Colbert. But still, it’s great to see Fallon really making his show 100% his own.
