Pink Floyd week on Jimmy Fallon, Day 4, Dierks Bentley’s “Wish You Were Here”

We are still following Late Night’s Jimmy Fallon who is hosting a series of artists this week to perform covers of Pink Floyd songs. I guess he thinks anyone that is up watching his show is likely stoned, and he wants to see if he can get a nation of stoned spirit-fingers going on the couches of America (or more likely he is promoting this week’s release of the remastered Pink Floyd box set) Regardless, it’s a chance to see some pretty big names do Pink Floyd covers. (are you guys tired of reading that same intro over and over again?!?!)

The Shins kicked it off Monday with “Breathe”, and Tuesday brought the Foo Fighters along with Roger Waters himself (which is kinda cheating in this little karaoke contest) to perform “In The Flesh”. Wednesday night was MGMT’s version of “Lucifer Sam” with a guest cameo by Bradford Cox (of Deerhunter/Atlas Sound fame). And, now up, is Nashville country crooner Dierks Bentley performing “Wish You Were Here” on Thursday night. I finally figured out how to embed the video on here, but you’ll have to entertain yourself during the 30 second ad at the beginning.

The finale is tonight (Friday), and will be Pearl Jam’s take of “Mother”.

Looks like all you stoners have a pretty cool week of music lined up from your Cheetos covered couches this week. Assuming, that is, you don’t forget.

I’ll repost this each day with updated links…. assuming, that is, I don’t forget.
