Well you guys, Netflix has done something pretty phenomenal here. They have crossed generations with music and incorporated that into a very well thought out series! Beat Bugs has been filling our screens, home and heart for the past week and I can’t seem to stop humming, “All You Need is Love.”
Seriously, if you don’t have Netflix and you have kids, NOW is the time to invest. There are so many wonderful shows on there right now and many of the ones that come to mind are all Netflix Originals. When I first head the concept of Beat Bugs I was completely intrigued. Then, when I saw that the titles of all of the episodes were famous Beatles songs I thought, genius! However, I was curious how they were going to make certain songs work. For instance, what on earth were they going to do about “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”? I mean really? Well, they figured it out and it was probably one of my favorite episodes.
Davis really gets into these and both of the boys are surprised that I “already” know the songs. How do you know this song mom! They are finally picking up on the fact that these songs are old songs being sung again. What a joy it is to watch these episodes, hear great old songs and know that it is a wholesome show teaching kids about everyday life problem solving. Here’s the deal, they didn’t just get any old singer to sing the songs either. No, you will recognize names like Pink, Sia, Robbie Williams, James Corden, Eddie Vedder and many more!
