Lava--our newest song obsession

On the screen right before the new Disney film Inside Out, a Disney/Pixar short called Lava is shown. I saw an interview with the director who said he was inspired by  Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole's version of Somewhere over the Rainbow and had wanted to somehow make a film from that inspiration. And I have to say he did a nice job of it--the story is sweet and the song is quite catchy. Lava has been on rotation in our house for 2 weeks now and even Ms. Julie got in on the action and learned the chords on the ukulele.

She surprised the girls last week by singing and playing it for them, of which I got a short clip.

This week she taught it to the girls. Kate didn't have nearly as much interest in learning it but Lucy, on the other hand, was focused and picked up the chords (and the words) pretty quickly.
