Late Night: Jimmy Fallon harmonizes with the Beach Boys

May 8, 2012 |  9:23 am


Because they've met every celebrity and politician under the sun, late-night comedians usually know how to keep their cool. But on Monday night, Jimmy Fallon, already late night's most boyishly enthusiastic host, was clearly ecstatic to welcome the Beach Boys to his show.

The recently reunited band stopped by "Late Night" to plug their 50th anniversary tour and upcoming album, "That's Why God Made the Radio." Band leaders Brian Wilson and Mike Love chatted with Fallon about recording together for the first time in decades. "When you hear the music coming back in the studio, it’s like sonic déjà vu," Love explained. They also taught Fallon how to harmonize to "Barbara Ann," and he proved a quick study. (Move over, John Stamos!)

But the real highlight, of course, was the band's performance of three songs, including the classic "Wouldn't It Be Nice," posted above. Enjoy.
