It’s Raining Paul Shaffer’s Greatest Hits, As Dave Letterman Ponders Grand Finale

David Letterman said his friend Al Franken said he’d like the last show “to be mawkish or maudlin,” possibly leaning toward the former. (We think it’ll probably have a little of both.)

Letterman asked bandleader Paul Shaffer for his insight, which was, “I have no idea what it should be.” Letterman replied, “If we knew what to do with the last show, do you think the previous 6,000 would look the way they looked?” And then segued into a montage of some of Shaffer’s finest moments set to The Weather Girls aka Two Tons o’ Fun singing the early ’80s disco hit “It’s Raining Men,” which was written by Shaffer and Paul Jabara.
