So just wanted to blog about this really quick. Two friends of mine from St. Albans School shared this video on Facebook, which I promptly reshared upon viewing.
Alicia Keys did a rendition of a cartoon theme song on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon that completely flipped it, being both fun and beautiful at the same time. This cartoon theme song was one from a show that was part of The Disney Afternoon, a block of half-hour shows that I would argue remain the height of children's cartoon series.
It's all gone down-hill since then, but I'm probably just saying that because of my age.

And here is Alicia Keys rendition of it, performed on Late Night this past November:
Wow...that's still all I have to say.
Out of curiosity, anyone have other covers of cartoon theme songs that were particularly moving or just surprising? Please share in the comments,
