Disclosure: We are part of the Netflix Stream Team. We received a box with the T-Shirts and instruments below to celebrate the new show: Beat Bugs.
We at the Dancing Hotdogs love the Beatles. “Golden Slumbers” is what I would sing to my boys as I changed their diapers or tried to make them fall asleep. Even now we have a radio play an old IPod of mine that plays music while they sleep, and the majority of the songs belong to the Beatles. It is my little way to musically educate them without the boys knowing yet. It has paid dividends though, because I will catch them once in a while singing along.
My biggest issue was just getting the boys to sit down and listen to the music, which is extremely hard to do with an 8 and 5 year old. That is why it is so great to see shows like Beat Bugs premiere on Netflix. Beat Bugs follows the adventures of five friends as they explore and learn in an overgrown backyard. The thing that makes the show great is that the series incorporates more than 50 Lennon/McCartney classic songs from the Beatles. On top of that the show also features brand new versions of some of the popular songs sung by stars such as Pink, James Corden, Eddie Vedder and Aloe Blacc.
Check out a brief sample of the show playing one of our favorite songs: “Blackbird”:
To help celebrate the show and get into the Beatles spirit the boys and I decided to do our own rendition of “All You Need is Love” with a couple of instruments and shirts we received from Netflix:
Season 1 of Beat Bugs is available now on Netflix. Season 2 will be premiering worldwide on November 18th 2016.
