Lin-Manuel Miranda Performs A Freestyle Song ‘OK Boomer’ And It’s A Hit
There are seldom things to get overly excited about these days but people are still trying to make us all laugh. Conan O’Brien has been doing shows from his home like so many other late show hosts and even “Saturday Night Live.” Thankfully, Lin-Manuel Miranda recently joined O’Brien and it was magic.
Lin-Manuel Miranda and Conan O’Brien “collaborated” on a new song and it is already a hit.
“OK Boomer” was born out of two things: O’Brien being able to talk about his day in great detail and Miranda’s musical genius abilities and willingness to listen. At the beginning of the video, Miranda asks O’Brien to tell him about his day. O’Brien delivers a very detailed account of his day and in the end, Miranda took that information and gave us “OK Boomer.”
“OK, Boomer. When are you gonna leave home? I go to the Zoom, I enter the room,” Miranda sings. “I want to see if I look cute and if I can temporarily unmute with the space bar. So, I ask my son, ‘Hey, do I hit the f—ing space bar?’ And he says to me, ‘OK, Boomer.'”
The songs bring the two grown men to fits of laughter and it is clear why. The song is as ridiculous as you need to find some humor during these crazy times. It also shows that not even a quarantine can break the human spirit.
Fans are already loving the song because of what it is about.
The comedy of the song is enough to make people laugh and forget their issues for a short while. Who else doesn’t feel like their life has become so mundane that it is hard to find some humor? Miranda is there to show us all that there are things that will still make you smile and laugh.
Some people want to let it get them through the day.
Just listen to it once all the way through. It is a song that doesn’t get to wild and is hard to get annoyed with. It will make you laugh and smile. It truly shows the selflessness that Miranda embodies on his day-to-day.
Some people just wish they could be as comforted by Miranda.
For people isolating alone, it can be very lonely. With no one to talk to, it is easy to feel so disconnected from the world because we are all just tucked away in our spaces. Imagine being able to talk to Miranda and have him listen to you so intently that he sings you a song that captures what you said. Wouldn’t that just make you feel so seen?
Thank you, Lin-Manuel Miranda.
You are a small piece of the puzzle that helps us make sense and find peace in this whole mess.
