There are some kids songs out there that really grate on my nerves. Kids will listen to the same song over and over and over again, until you think your ears are actually going to bleed. We have listened to Let It Go so many times that I am certain I could perform it on a moment’s notice. When I hear the intro to that song, my stomach clenches. I am sure my fellow parents understand this phenomenon.
But for some reason, the children’s song that is sweeping the nation doesn’t bother me. I can listen to it as many times as Charlotte does. The second the beat drops, I start to dance. I know the moves by heart and I think it is an excellent song, a club banger even.
I am, of course, talking about Baby Shark. For those of you that haven’t experienced the joy that is Pink Fog’s (the OG, don’t even come at me with the poser versions of this masterpiece) here is the link in all of its sharky glory.
I don’t know why I love this song so much. Perhaps because my body involuntarily bops along to the music? Perhaps because it comes with easy hand moves that anyone can master? I mean, when the RUN AWAY portion comes on, I RUN THE HELL AWAY. Char and I run like our lives depend on it. As I’m writing this, the song is playing in the background. I have restarted it at least 3 times. I will never tire of the glory that is Baby Shark.
I am probably in the less popular opinion camp on this one, but I do not care. Baby Shark will continue to get YouTube views, and that will mainly be because of me.
SAFE AT LASSSSSSSST!
