“The Boys Are Back In Town” (Thin Lizzy Cover) (Live On Conan) (Video)

    Anyone who has seen Reggie Watts’ live standup show will be familiar with his strange mix of humor and music. Watts also contributed to LCD Soundsystem’s final shows earlier this year, here he had a walk-on part in the epic rendition of 45:33. Last night he appeared on Conan O’Brien’s show, where he performed Thin Lizzy’s “The Boys Are Back In Town,” which is unlike any version of the song that you’ll have previously heard. It’s almost Elton John-esque in places, with Watts demonstrating his fine voice and oddball showmanship as his interpretation of the track progresses from a torch song to a flashy show tune to something that resembles the original.
