"The Geeks Get the Girls" is the first single from American Hi-Fi's third album, Hearts on Parade. It was also the theme song to MTV's You've Got a Friend and the first two seasons of Beauty and the Geek, which was on the pre-"the CW" WB network.

Content[edit]

The song is about a boy who is described as a loser, geek and freak and his attempts to woo an attractive woman he meets in a bar. Despite his somewhat pathetic attempts, the song ultimately ends with him taking the girl back to his apartment.

Music Video[edit]

Before American Hi-Fi were signed to Maverick, the band made a low budget video of the song for their promotion.It only showed the band performing on a stage. The second version of the video was released after signing to Maverick where the video goes with the story line, the geek getting the girl while American Hi-Fi are performing on the beach shore.
