This is another viral hit that’s been around for a while, but I only recently rediscovered it as I’ve fallen off of SNL quite a while ago. I first heard comedian Jimmy Fallon perform this song on Conan O’Brien’s short-lived stint hosting The Tonight Show, and only recently discovered that the thing was a viral sensation of sorts. (I never said I was hip.)
I obviously have no personal experience with boyfriends, idiotic or otherwise, but what attracted me to this song, aside from how joyfully goofy it is, is how it’s presented; the song is done in the style of a 70’s disco number, with Fallon singing it in an Andy Gibb-esque falsetto. As a child of the 1970’s, I’ve always wanted to do a cheesy 70’s-style disco song, regardless of its’ content. Here’s “Idiot Boyfriend”.
