My daughter is very much like her father in that she gets obsessed with something and does not let go for ages. The most recent obsession has been the Trolls movie and soundtrack. She actually has an alarm clock that I bought her when the movie was in theaters that I have been torturing her with for months. (Or not, I’m Not Giving Up Today!!)
As far as soundtracks go, the Trolls one is not so bad. However, my kid loves the most annoying song on the soundtrack and she wants to hear it repeatedly. I have never been a fan of ballads, in fact I want to poke my ear drums with chop sticks when I hear anything that sounds remotely like a love song. Topping the list of songs that make me start reaching for the chop sticks is “Hello” by Lionel Richie. This is of course my daughter’s very favorite song to sing and the one she wants to play over and over again. The kid has found her jam and it will be the song I hear 4,000 times before the end of the month.
The soundtrack version is covered by Zooey Deschanel who has a lovely voice, but it still does not help me from wanting to jump out of my car every time the song comes on. I literally was ready to jump out of a moving vehicle until I remembered that the awesome little nugget in the back needed to get to school in one piece so she could carry on the singing and dancing. I hope her teachers were ready for her this morning.
