Whether it’s breakfast or the movie “Footloose,” Bacon just makes everything better.
Actor Kevin Bacon kept that trend going on “The Tonight Show” on Monday. The actor, who’s in a real-life band with his brother, broke out his Tom Petty impression and revealed the song “Free Fallin’” used to be way different.
It turns out the song was originally all about horses. Basically, every other line Bacon/Petty sings is about horses, and just when you think he’s going to do something different, he horses around some more.
If Bacon hasn’t gone hoarse, he might still be singing about horses now.
Would you want to miss that? The answer is “neigh.”
“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
