Every Saturday, Scott Bradlee and friends reinterpret a cartoon theme song as a ’90s R&B slow jam. They’ve already made smooth covers of the DuckTales, Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme songs.
Now they’ve enlisted Andromeda Turre to sing about Disney’s Gummi Bears, not to be confused with the crotch-grabbing Gummy Bear that the allegedly crotch-grabbing John Travolta is signed to play in an upcoming movie.
This key-change-filled jam about Gummi Bears really takes me back. Magic and mystery are part of their history, unlike Swedish Fish, whose only mystery is, “How are these still selling?”
Sidenote: You know how people say you can’t actually die in a dream? Whenever I fall from a great height in a dream, I don’t wake up. Instead, I bounce and the Gummi Bears theme song starts playing. Thanks a lot, subconscious.
