We've loved impersonations ever since we were kids. There's something miraculous about a good mimic, and over the years we've been enthralled with the magic of Frank Gorshin and Rich Little and Frank Caliendo and Kevin Pollack and Kevin Spacey. Give us enough to drink, and we might baffle you with a half-bad Christopher Walken, or Brando in "On The Waterfront," but we're not kidding ourselves--entertaining a group of inebriated friends is nothing like going on national TV with your impersonations--and singing to boot! Here's a great set from Jimmy Fallon--a musical set with an uncanny impersonation of seventies-era Neil Young singing a Willow song, "Whip My Hair." Neil is joined by an uncanny impersonation of the young Bruce Springsteen--played by Bruce himself. Hilarious.
