The LEGO Movie 2

You may have just gotten ‘Everything Is Awesome!’ from the first ‘LEGO Movie’ out of your head, but the makers of the sequel, ‘The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part’ are about to embed another earworm that you won’t be able to shake for years.  The new film features a new song, ‘Catchy Song’ by Dillon Francis featuring T-Pain and That Girl Lay Lay.  This new track features the refrain “This song’s gonna get stuck inside yo… this song’s gonna get stuck inside yo… this song’s gonna get stuck inside yo heeeeeeeaaaaad.”

Don’t say you weren’t warned!  You can check it out below (if you dare):

Dillon Francis is an electronic “moombahton” artist and has worked with Diplo, DJ Snake, Skrillex, and Calvin Harris among others.  He has also dabbled in acting.

In ‘The LEGO Movie 2’, it seems that Lucy (a.k.a. Wyldstyle) is forced to listen to this song as a “punishment” of sorts.  It also seems to be the soundtrack to the Systar System, the home of DUPLO and LEGO Friends bricks, where life is a musical.

In this clip, the cast of ‘The LEGO Movie 2’ including Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Allison Brie, and Jimmy O. Yang try to resist the charm of ‘The Catchy Song’.

‘Everything Is Awesome!’ performed by twin indie-electro-pop duo Tegan & Sara, featuring The Lonely Island was one of the most well-remembered parts of the first movie and turned into the unofficial tagline for the film.  (No surprise, Lucy hated that song too!)  ‘Everything Is Awesome!’ was produced by Devo’s Mark Motherbaugh and was even nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song from a Movie, but lost to ‘Glory’ from the movie ‘Selma’.  (Talk about a downer.)

‘The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part’ assembles in theaters on February 8.  That gives you a couple of weeks to listen to this song on repeat!
