Welcome Back, Conan: Reggie Watts Show Tune ("The Boys Are Back In Town")


Yes, last night was in fact, the pinnacle of Halloween Weekend(s); In honor of the closing events séance, "Conan"'s newest episode was flavored with a moderate amount of extra [special] tricks and treats. Following an approximately 55-minute dosage of the regular hi-jinx, Jimmy Fallon-assisted laughs, and slightly awkward moments... Reggie Watts & House Band proceeded to take the Beacon Theater main stage. The musical comedian took the stage, decked out in his signature 'fro and a Prince-esque blood red velvet suit jacket/puffy shirt.
In an earnest, heart-felt effort to give long-time friend Conan a proper "Welcome Home Celebration," Reggie Watts performed a re-arranged version of Thin Lizzy's "The Boys Are Back In Town" (1976). Honoring Conan's week-long stay @ Beacon Theater -- his first lengthy New York holiday since roughly 2009 -- Watts performed a truly unique version of the band's staple hit: Shifting back and forth between lounge piano riffs, show tune-inspired rhythms, and Rock "N" Roll-lending flare. Sit back and enjoy Reggie Watts' now infamous rendition of the classic "Celtic Rock" track below, ghouls & gals!
