Christopher Cross Plays "Ride Like The Wind" on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon
As per Jimmy Fallon's request, Christopher Cross played his debut 1980 single "Ride Like The Wind" with the Roots
All last week, Fallon could hardly contain his excitement for his upcoming "Yacht Rock" episode and for Cross to play his show. For those unfamiliar with Yacht Rock, there was a hilarious online video series produced in 2005 that followed the fictional lives of such seminal soft rock superstars as Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, Steely Dan, Hall & Oates and even Warren G (not a soft rock superstar, but if you know his music/one hit single, then you understand how he fits in). Those familiar with the series understand the hold that Yacht Rock has on today's society, not to mention popular culture.
