Robin Thicke has penned the song of the summer ‘Blurred Lines.

Robin Thicke, who vaulted to the top of the charts with his catchy song “Blurred Lines,” shows just how simple it can get on the Jimmy Fallon show. He performs with the Roots playing a bunch of grade school instruments. It’s still just as catchy.

Fallon and his house band have played similar impromptu sessions with Carly Rae Jepsen and Mariah Carey.

So, it looks like the segment is on its way to becoming a regular feature. It’s amazing how much sound they can get out of a toy xylophone, cow bell, maracas, kazoo, a ukulele, a sand block and a kid’s melodica.

Thicke, considered a journeyman performer, is best known as the son of actor Alan Thicke. But he’s a nifty songwriter and has penned tunes for Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, Usher and Mary J. Blige.

He’s released six albums: A Beautiful World (2003), The Evolution of Robin Thicke (2006), Something Else (2008), Sex Therapy (2009), Love After War (2011) and Blurred Lines (2013).

The most recent was released July 30 to mixed reviews, but the lead single “Blurred Lines,” has become the song of the summer. It’s hard, once you listen to it, to get it out of your head. Last year, Jepsen’s “Call Me, Maybe,” held the honor.

Check out the performance below and get ready to start humming the tune. You can thank us by following TheImproper on Twitter to stay on top of the latest pop culture news.
