Make room in your laminated binder next to "Girl in 14G" and "Alto's Lament", cherubs ("cherubs" in the sense of both the pet name, and the alumni of Northwestern's illustrious summer theater intensive): “The Only [Straight] Boy in the Room” is a sultry slow jam that allows its singer to show off comic timing, lyrical dexterity, and gratuitous belting. It is a genderless slut anthem because the mesmerizing pull of the only straight boy in the room in high school is known to all.
