Alicia Keys took us back to the 80′s last night when she covered the Disney’s Adventures of the Gummi Bears theme song on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Alicia Keys appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night to promote her upcoming album, Girl on Fire, out Nov. 27. No, her album has nothing to do with Katniss Everdeen or The Hunger Games. “Girl on Fire is about new beginnings, new perspectives and fresh starts,” Keys wrote about the new record on her website.
We were a little shocked when we realized that the song that Keys was singing in her soulful style was none other than one of our favorite themes from Gummi Bears, a show that we watched as kids.
Here’s the cover:
We thought it was absolutely great and we love it when our childhood favorites get brought back to life. If you’ve never heard the original Gummi Bears theme song, be sure to check it out:
Here at Hypable, we’re big fans of TV theme songs. Back in June, we polled our readers and got the top 50 TV theme songs. Gummi Bears didn’t make the list, but Alicia Keys has us wishing that it had.
