When the first LEGO Movie came out in 2014, we were immediately bitten by the LSS (Last Song Syndrome) bug in the tune of Everything is Awesome. It didn’t take long before Bricksburg’s anthem became a rallying cry of LEGO fans all over the world. Now fast forward to 2019, a new generation of LEGO fans will once again be caught in a catchy song that will surely get stuck in every LEGO fan’s head. The LEGO Movie 2 has revealed its most trendsetting song yet, and its one that is aptly named as well.
Simply named as the Catchy Song, this latest theme from the movie’s soundtrack was performed by Dillon Francis and features rapper T-Pain and tween hip-hop sensation That Girl Lay Lay. You can hear the complete song courtesy of WaterTower Music right here. The above promotional, one-minute trailer also gives us a hint at what part of the LEGO Movie 2 film will the Catchy Song be featured. We don’t know the complete story plot yet, but judging from several scenes shown on the trailer, the LSS-inducing song will be used to somehow subject Lucy to some kind of mind-control procedure at the behest of Sweet Mayhem. The scene seems to take place inside the Pop-Up Party Bus (708280) which includes some pretty interesting characters. It’s cool to see how almost all of the characters in the interstellar Party Bus have a corresponding physical minifigure, especially those included in the LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigure series. My only wish is that this Party Bus version of Benny will eventually find itself in an official LEGO set.
The next scene seems to happen within the dreamy territories of the Systar System, where Rex and Emmet find themselves in the company of hyper-cheerful minifigures, minidolls, and maracas-rattling raptors. Emmet is uncontrollably drawn in by the tune of the Catchy Song where his minifigure body wiggles as if it has a mind of its own.
Warner Bros certainly knows how to amp up its LEGO Movie 2 promotions, and the Catchy Song seems to do the trick. I’m afraid this song will certainly get stuck inside my head for quite a long time.
The LEGO Movie 2 is scheduled to be released in theaters in the US and the rest of the world on February 8, with its huge wave of official LEGO tie-in sets currently offered at shop.LEGO.com
