Kevin Bacon and Jimmy Fallon sing Head over Heels by Tears for Fears on the Tonight Show 

Actor Kevin Bacon and Jimmy Fallon are now a Tears for Fears parody band. On Wednesday night’s episode of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, the talk show host and actor tried to recreate the first drafts of Rock Segment and did a parody for Tears for Fears’ 1985 hit “Head Over Heels”.

The video first starts with information about the seminal 80’s band and their classic track. And just before both the artist start their interpretation of the track, a narrator says,

“With iconic melodies and thoughtful lyrics, the track would live on as one of the great rock songs of all time. But America never heard its first draft — until now.”

Bacon and Fallon then appear in a hazy video accompanied by a backing band and wearing their hair in curls. The Footloose actor was the first up to the mic and sang, 

“I wanted to be with you alone/ And talk about the weather/ There’s rain up in Seattle so if you’re going out/ You might need an umbrella.”

Fallon then comes in with an assist on the second verse, with even more weather’s lyrics:

“Got a degree in meteorology/ To talk about the weather/ According to the dew point the humidity’s up/ As the temperatures climb/ That’s just, just, just summertime.”

The two then sing a very different version of the song’s original chorus. Here is what they sang,

“For the weather, you can call Tears for Fears/ We’ll check the radar if the skies will be clear/ Warm front’s coming, so the clouds disappear/ With a gentle breeze, 80 degrees let’s, let’s, look at the four-day forecast/ four days forecast for days,”

Here you can watch the video below:

“Head Over Heels” was released in 1985 as the second single from Tears for Fears’ sophomore album, Songs From the Big Chair. The song spent a total of 20 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at No. 3.

“I think that in the past few years, even someone as old and weathered as me can say, ‘Let me start to listen a little bit more and start to look at things from a different point of view,'” Bacon says. “Certainly when it comes to young people, they are our future.”

The actor has one son Travis Bacon and a daughter Sosie Bacon with his wife Kyra Sedgwick who accompanied him on the red carpet at Sunday’s Outfest premiere of They/Them at the Theater at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles.
