Alicia Keys Is So Good, She Can Even Make the ‘Gummi Bears’ Theme Song Soulful [VIDEOS]
Songbird Alicia Keys recently went on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon‘ to promote her new album ‘Girl on Fire.’ And, at the behest of Fallon, she performed a cover of the ‘Disney’s Adventures of the Gummi Bears’ television show theme. Because why not.
During her appearance, Keys took to the piano — but instead of doing a song off her new record, she instead turned the minute-long ’80s children’s theme into a three-minute ballad about the adventures of the candy clan.
And it was awesome. Who knew the ‘Gummi Bears’ had so much heart? So much soul? So much edible joy?
Especially with the chorus: “Gummi Bears! / Bouncing here and there and everywhere / High adventure that’s beyond compare / They are the Gummi Bears.”
We’ve included the original ’80s-tastic version below for reference and comparison. Try not to get bowled over by your immense nostalgia.
