You expect that Justin Timberlake will wish his old Camp Winnipesaukee pal Jimmy Fallon a happy birthday. But Paul McCartney? The former Beatle took some time out of his gig at Barclays Center on Tuesday night (Sept. 19) to call out Fallon and say happy birthday, and then, of course, sing "Birthday" to the 43-year-old Tonight Show host, who was in the audience losing his freakin' mind the whole time.
"Wait a minute, who's this guy?" McCartney says from the stage, looking out to spot Fallon in primo seats on the floor. "Hey, wait a minute, is that Jimmy, Jimmy Fallon?... Happy birthday Jim! Okay Jim, this is especially for you and the other people who who've got a birthday." Watch Fallon take selfies with wife Nancy Juvonen (and Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels) sing along and lose his mind over the unexpected honor.
Watch the birthday boy fanboy below.

Paul McCartney set list: What might he play at Syracuse concert?

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Paul McCartney's 2017 concerts tend to run long -- about three hours.
Of course, the former Beatle and acclaimed singer/songwriter has one of the largest catalogs in music history. He has plenty of original tunes to use and he has the endurance to perform as many as possible.
Sets on the "One on One" tour range from 35-40 songs. It includes songs he wrote and performed with the Quarrymen, the Beatles, Wings (his band with Linda McCartney) and smaller solo projects.
McCartney played at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Sept. 19 and fans compiled his set list online the next day. All his shows on this tour have opened with "A Hard Day's Night and ended with "The End," after a multi-song encore.
