Robin Thicke and Ron Burgundy Join Forces for ‘Ride Like the Wind’ Cover
The premise of ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’ revolves around Ron Burgundy and company attempting to acclimate themselves into the 24/7 news cycle. This is a solid backdrop for some past-present collaborations, like Burgundy’s collaboration with new age suave symbol Robin Thicke on a cover of ‘Ride Like the Wind.’
The duet is a cover of Christopher Cross’s 1980 classic of the same name. Thicke performs his rendition in a manner that’s faithful to the original, yet with a little more vigor. Burgundy doesn’t do much singing as much as he pesters Thicke with questions that come from him taking the lyrics all too literal.
“It is the night, my body’s weak,” Thicke sings.
“Right, ’cause you’re running,” Burgundy interjects.
The ‘Ride Like the Wind’ cover is a cut off the ‘Anchorman 2′ soundtrack, which drops on Dec. 17. The long-anticipated movie hits theaters on Dec. 25.
