Last night had a full slate of special TV covers. We’ve already seen the Flaming Lips warp the Beatles on MTV and Amanda Palmer and friends do their take on Rocky Horror on Ferguson. Not to be outdone, Conan offered its own special cover: Reggie Watts doing Thin Lizzy’s “The Boys Are Back in Town.”

A longtime friend of Conan O’Brien and frequent guest on the show, Watts dialed down his usual avant-garde zaniness for a joyous big-band cover. The tune served to welcome Conan back to NYC as he begins a special week of shows there. Watch Watts and the Basic Cable Band rock “The Boys Are Back in Town” below.

    He definitely has a unique delivery, but still maintains a lot of the same feel, just gives it a little more of a soulful twist. It starts off so slow, but really comes too.
