Song of the Day: Tegan and Sara, featuring The Lonely Island - Everything is Awesome!

This song is really catchy.  Tegan and Sara like I've never heard them!

"Everything Is AWESOME!!! -- The LEGO® Movie -- Tegan and Sara feat. The Lonely Island"

Seriously deep lyrics in this song (!).
I feel more awesome than an awesome opossum
Dip my body in chocolate frostin'
Three years later, washed out the frostin'
Smellin' like a blossom, everything is awesome

Yes, I saw the Lego movie with my girls over the weekend.  GREAT movie!  So many details for the old folks among us.  For example, the 1980's astronaut character had scratched writing on his chest and a broken chin bar on his helmet ... exactly like what happened to every single astronaut figure we had while growing up--incredible attention to detail!

Did you see the trailer for the movie, by the way?  Here it is.  By the way, I'm the star of the movie.

In the movie they did up my hair really nicely.  But normally my hair is shorter, as in this promo shot:

Everything Is Awesome Lyrics
This is the first song in "The Lego Movie". It is created by Lord Business/ President Business and encourages a positive outlook on life.

Everything is awesome
Everything is cool when you're part of a team
Everything is awesome, when we're living our dream

Everything is better when we stick together
Side by side, you and I gonna win forever, let's party forever
We're the same, I'm like you, you're like me, we're all working in harmony

Everything is awesome
Everything is cool when you're part of a team
Everything is awesome, when we're living our dream

Wooo
3, 2, 1. go

Have you heard the news, everyone's talking
Life is good 'cause everything's awesome
Lost my job, it's a new opportunity
More free time for my awesome community

I feel more awesome than an awesome opossum
Dip my body in chocolate frostin'
Three years later, washed out the frostin'
Smellin' like a blossom, everything is awesome
Stepped in mud, got new brown shoes
It's awesome to win, and it's awesome to lose (it's awesome to lose)

Everything is better when we stick together
Side by side, you and I, gonna win forever, let's party forever
We're the same, I'm like you, you're like me, we're all working in harmony

Everything is awesome
Everything is cool when you're part of a team
Everything is awesome, when we're living our dream

Blue skies, bouncy springs
We just named two awesome things
A nobel prize, a piece of string
You know what's awesome, everything

Dogs and fleas, allergies, a book of Greek antiquities
Brand new pants, a very old vest
Awesome items are the best

Trees, frogs, clogs
They're awesome
Rocks, clocks, and socks
They're awesome
Figs, and jigs, and twigs
That's awesome
Everything you see, or think, or say
...Is awesome

Everything is awesome
Everything is cool when you're part of a team
Everything is awesome, when we're living our dream
