Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-hah, Todd - ler!
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-hah, Todd - ler!
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-hah, Todd - ler!

I was rocked in a bright colored swingy bed (Todd - ler!)
I looked up at the zoo mobile over my head (Todd - ler!)
My nappy's full and I thought what should I do (Todd - ler!)
And I knew, I'll just lie here, look cute and coo (Todd - ler!)

But he was missing so many notes, it looked like...like the D right next to middle C. Did he just pick a song without those notes? But given that he apparently worked out the song "by ear" how could he know ahead of time it wouldn't have the missing notes?

Also, wow, i can't imagine having an ear good enough to work out which note a baby is speaking. Or hell, even sort them from lowest to highest. I suck at hearing which note is higher or lower.

So good. I was enchanted. Good job, parent!

Our dog, on the other hand, freaked out because he thought it sounded so weird...

This is excellent. I do feel sorry for Ryan when this resurfaces when he's 13 or so.

I prefered that kids earlier work before they sold out and went less burp heavy.

How does that only have 56,000 views on YouTube?

Watching this is actually a pretty accurate depiction of what it's like to be the parent of a small child.

Put the whaling in the middle of the night clips together for some rage punk or GTFO.

I just wanted him to use a DAW in the "Making of..." clip.

My favorite part is how well the baby noises match the sound of the first few words "I was caught" of the actual vocal line in "Thunderstruck." And yeah, the sneezes and other percussion sounds are also very good.

I like the big sister tickling him, which we heard a lot in our house when someone little had a cute laugh.

The making of video is worth the watch just for when he plays all the singing noises in ascending order of pitch.

Aw shit this has just set The Child Through the Wall¹ off howling.

¹: different other child from before, but seemingly just as howly. Is this a standard feature nowadays?
