Sia and Pink covered the Beatles for this adorable Netflix show
Children’s animated shows have long used music to keep kids’ attention, but let’s be real: Adults are definitely paying attention to the music too, especially when the soundtrack is Beatles covers by some of the biggest pop stars in the world.
That’s the premise of Netflix’s upcoming Beat Bugs, which recruited some of our favorite musicians to take on the Beatles.
Among the featured artist covers: Pink on “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” and Sia on “Blackbird,” which are two perfect pairings of song and singer. Luckily, Netflix has released snippets of both songs so you don’t have to, ah, binge all of Beat Bugs just to take a listen.

An even more “of course” song and singer pairing — Sia and “Blackbird,” which is especially apt because her character (of course) is an injured blackbird relearning how to fly. Is it incredibly on the nose? Sure, but it’s also sweet in that kid’s show way, which is, of course, perfect:
Though the bunch of the Beatles covers setlist has been released, the list isn’t complete. For the *full* Beatles/Beat Bugs songbook, you’ll just have to tune in.
