When your 3-year-old influences your Spotify Discover Weekly

Unicorns I love them: in my Spotify Discover Weekly

Amusing to see “The Unicorn Song” in my Spotify “Discover Weekly”. This cute song starts with a little child saying “Unicorns da dumm. Unicorns da dumm”. It sounds like she is saying something about unicorns, but I can’t make it out.

This unicorn phrase repeats for about 36 seconds, then a little techno electronic beat is introduced.

The little adorable voice reminds me of my three-year-old daughter singing.

The main question I have is:

Why is this in my Spotify Discover Weekly? Spotify builds this playlist based on what you have been listening to lately.

Our Google Home speakers have my Spotify account connected, so my Discover Weekly will often get infiltrated with various Disney songs that my daughter plays. But this song, this song about unicorns is different.

It’s one thing to have your daughter’s songs in your Spotify Discover, but it’s a whole other thing to have a song that sounds like your daughter singing in your Discover!

Plus, the song does have a bit of a electronica vibe to it. And the great majority of MY music is of the electronic variety.

Maybe Spotify is being really smart and combining a kids song with an electronica song.

Update

The song is based on a scene in the movie “Despicable Me” where one of the characters going to bed sings “Unicorns I love them, Unicorns I love them.”

The full lyrics to the song:
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Uni, uni, unicorns, I could pet them, if they were real
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Uni, uni, unicorns, I could pet them, if they were real
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I love them
Unicorns, I…
