Tasty Track of 2014 Number 12: Everything is Awesome by Tegan and Sara (Ft The Lonely Island)

Providing the musical hook for The Lego Movie, "Everything is Awesome" by Tegan and Sara (with The Lonely Island) may be the sneakiest ear-worm this year. Written by The Lonely Island, the synthesized tune works because the chorus is sturdy, and Tegan and Sara are game for all of the humor. Of course, it features a good natured but facetious rap by its writers, which doesn't hurt either. Though it was a modest commercial success, I guarantee everyone leaving the theater after seeing the The Lego Movie was humming this tune.
