Sheryl Crow, Ezra Koenig and Barry Manilow tickle the ivories on a Tuesday.


Need more piano balladry in your life? You’re in luck — hot on the heels of Monday’s keyboard-heavy evening, there was another round of ivory-tickling on Tuesday’s late-night talk shows. Start with Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, delivering a medley of Flower Moon, Stranger and Big Blue — from the band’s 2019 album Father Of The Bride — on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Then check out Sheryl Crow, covering George Harrison’s Beware of Darkness — and professing her love for Stephen Colbert — on The Late Show. Finally, look toward brighter days with Barry Manilow as he presents When The Good Times Come Again on The Late Late Show With James Corden. If that still isn’t enough piano balladry, you’re on your own. I got other things to do today.
