New music: Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young (sort of) - Whip My Hair

The two men solely responsible for keeping harmonica shops in business have joined forces for an unlikely cover

OK, one of these men isn't really Neil Young, it's American TV host Jimmy Fallon. But he does a pretty convincing impression of the Canadian rocker's dulcet tones. The other definitely is Bruce Springsteen, who rocks up halfway through this earnest version of 10-year-old Willow Smith's Whip My Hair. The pair appear to be feeling the lyrics: "I whip my hair back and forth (whip it real good)." And who wouldn't?
