This Song’s Joy is viral: Jimmy Fallon, Carly Rae Jepsen & The Roots sing “Call Me Maybe.” (with Classroom Instruments)

Singing is Joy, Singing is Community, Singing is Smile, Singing is Relaxation.

Not to over-sell it, but…seeing a bunch of people sing and smile together…made my day. It might make yours, too.

Via Reddit: “The guy on the far right looks like he’s saying “F*ck yeah rainbow xylophone mother f*cker!”

“Music Room”: Backstage before the show, Jimmy, Carly Rae Jepsen, and The Roots grabbed some instruments you’d find in an elementary school classroom and performed “Call Me Maybe.”

Carly Rae Jepsen – vocals, triangle
Jimmy Fallon – wood block, tambourine, bass drum
Questlove – washboard stick, kazoo, recorder
Tuba Gooding Jr. – kazoo, recorder
Frank Knuckles – bongos
Captain Kirk – ukulele
James Poyser – melodica
Mark Kelley – toy xylophone
Black Thought – tambourine
