Do you ever get annoyed by the songs in the shows that your kids watch? If you say no, I’m going to assume you’re either lying, you live on some kind of commune where there is no TV and you’re reading this in print form after I become famous and turn my blog into a book…there’s also a good chance you plan to use the pages for toilet paper after you read them, so I won’t let my head get too swollen. Or you have access to better medication than I do.
As our kids get older they tend to get suspicious of anything that seems like we are enjoying it, and you absolutely cannot tell them that it was around when we were kids. My kids aren’t even convinced that fire had been discovered yet when I was a child. Molly was watching a geography video today and she said it looks like it’s either from the ‘80s or the ‘60s, like there is no difference at all between the two. I’m pretty sure it was about the year the earth was formed.
Netflix has a new original show to ease the woes of listening to terrible music when we watch with our kids, and at the same time introduce them to those timeless songs that don’t give us headaches or make us want to send pamphlets to the singers about making good life choices.
Beat Bugs is about some adorable garden bugs who learn lessons and sing along with a different Beatles song in every episode. The theme song is All you need is love, which my family and I attempted to sing along to.
Since my own mother regularly told me that I was tone deaf, I think you can imagine how well this went. The next time someone tries to bully me into singing karaoke I am just going to show them this video, and I’m confident they will see my point.
The good news is that I have a reward for subjecting yourself to my singing…I have a 3-month subscription to Netflix (Canada) to give away. Comment below by 11:59pm EST Friday October 28th** on on what your favourite Beatles song is and I will randomly draw one lucky winner!*
Disclosure – I am a member of the Netflix Stream Team and I receive lots of great stuff to support my binge watching in exchange for writing about our family’s experience. I imagine they will also soon buy me my own remote island to live on should I ever feel the need to sing again in association with their brand.
*Contest winner must be 18 years of age or older and a resident of Canada, excluding Quebec.
**Contest period extended to October 28, 2016
