Every morning for the last month, my twin girls whine from the moment they wake up until I finally relent and agree to play for them the Frozen soundtrack. Every afternoon, on the way home from preschool, the twins insist that I play the soundtrack in the car. Most every night, as we’re trying to put them to sleep, they end up singing “Let It Go” back and forth to each other over and over and over until they finally mumble it to sleep. THEY HAVE NEVER SEEN THE MOVIE.
“Let It Go” has been burrowed into my brain for most of the last five months, since the film was released, taking a break only occasionally to allow “The First Time in Forever” Or “Do You Wanna Build a Snowman” supplant it. Last night, I was in a sports bar. In Philadelphia. And guess what song they played while a soccer game, a hockey game, and a baseball game were playing on mute? “LET IT GO.”
If the government is using mind control on us all, it is undoubtedly doing so through that song. At this point, I will give them whatever they want, if they just turn the goddamn song off in my brain. PLEASE.
Anyway, Patton Oswalt, who has a daughter, understands my pain. Here he is gnashing it in anger out at a recent stand-up performance.
