“Troll Doll” may not have won any Grammy’s, but if there was an award for best comedic parody cover songs, Jimmy Fallon’s mantle would be overflowing (new Grammys category, anyone?). Fallon’s latest effort, a parody of the classic James Taylor song, “Fire and Rain” makes politics actually tolerable (if only every bit of the conventions were this pleasing to the ear). Fallon’s “Romney & Bain” is a hilarious spin on Taylor’s recent performance at the DNC. Maybe Fallon can help Obama write the tune for his inauguration.
