  1. Really nice selection this time around. Well, OK, that cover of Nothing Else Matters is unspeakably awful but that hilarious Jimmy Fallon/ Springsteen song more than makes up for it. That’s got to be one of the most uncanny impressions, certainly singing impressions, I have ever heard.

    I love First Aid Kit’s cover of America. I was hoping to hear it on your Simon and Garfunkel show, but I am MUCH happier that it ended up in the 20 of the year! They are one of my favorite acts on the planet.

    correction “…ended up in the TOP 20 of the year”
