It’s always a treat when Pharrell Williams stops by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Last night (March 3) was a little bit on the random side, but the warm-hearted nature of the conversation was quite enjoyable. Topics ranged from Pharrell’s love for ‘80s sitcoms to his idea for a new iPhone app that replaces Siri’s voice with Questlove’s. 

The producer, rapper and The Voice coach shared his love for era-specific television theme songs (Knight Rider is his favorite), while doing his own impressions throughout his appearance, with The Roots providing their own take on the little ditties and Fallon playing air guitar. 

“The funny thing is, the ’70s and ’80s were like that. It was a very different thing,” Pharrell said while the two went back and forth on their nostalgic kick. “You weren’t worried about how you looked or how you came off."

“You'd make a face,” he said. “The face helped convey how you were feeling about the song…’80s and ’70s music puts a strut in your thing.”
