My sister has asked me to ask a question of this “collection of faceless internet aquaintances that * won’t shut up about”. A few days ago she asked me about that upbeat instrumental song that was in the commercials for Zootopia. It was in the ones for Shaun the Sheep, too. The kids (2 girls 5 and 3) always dance when they hear the commercial and she wanted to get the song for them. I looked it up for her and had to explain that it’s not an instrumental at all. It’s Fireball by Pitbull.
The family won’t be listening to it in the car on the way to church. I wondered what the folks at Pixar were thinking when they used Up in the Air by 30 Seconds to Mars for one of the Planes movies.
So the question is what gives? There are all kinds of songs released every day by a multitude of artists. Why pick ones with grown up lyrics for movies aimed at kids?
