Conan O'Brien Performs 'The Simpsons' Monorail Song Live At Hollywood Bowl
Why? Because life is nice sometimes. Adding more support to the argument that The Simpsons is enjoying a late-life resurgence, the series just completed a three-day run at The Hollywood Bowl, showcasing all its best musical numbers with an all-star cast of Simpsons voice talent and creators. And what would that showcase be without "The Monorail Song?" Not much. And what would "The Monorail Song" be without writer Conan O'Brien? Not much, either. The song was originally performed by Phil Hartman, who was murdered 16 years ago, so Conan took it upon himself to perform the song that he wrote. There's also some fun banter about how the song has been the bane of Conan's public existence. I could go into further detail, but just watch the awesome video.
