Late-Night TV Music (Old, New, Etc. Edition) | May 3, 2021

Dominic Fike, Girl In Red, Jason Aldean and Passenger are your Monday options.


Something old, something new, something borrowed and something … er, red. OK, it’s doesn’t rhyme. But whatever; those are Late-Night TV Music options from Monday. Take ’em or leave ’em.

The best of the bunch: Singer-songwriter Dominic Fike’s vibrant cover of the recent Paul McCartney cut Kiss Of Venus on The Late Late Show With James Corden. Though I can also see the appeal of Girl In Red’s cathartic chemical-imbalance ode Serotonin on The Tonight Show Starring James Fallon. That takes care of the borrowed and the red. For the new and slightly old, you’ve got Jason Aldean’s latest country ballad Blame It On You on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and a leftover clip of Passenger singing Sword From The Stone that The Late Show With Stephen Colbert tossed up on YouTube in the hopes you’ll give them some clicks even though they’re off this week. And since I did, their cynical ploy clearly worked. Dammit.
