Paul McCartney’s 1979 single “Wonderful Christmastime” is, to put it mildly, not among the most beloved songs in the McCartney canon. But last night the tune was given a fresh, slightly less irritating rendition on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show.

Fallon was joined by McCartney himself, as well as The Roots and the cast of the movie Sing (including Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson and more). They performed the song acapella—watch the video above, and below, listen to Paste Cloud audio of McCartney performing some of his slightly more well-liked songs circa 1990.
