'Star Wars' Theme Song Brings Screaming Baby Back From the Dark Side (VIDEO)

Awww! 16

crying babyThe force is strong with this one! Sorry, I just had to say it -- because I have seen the future of this adorable little baby, and that future includes Comic-Con tickets and Chewbacca costumes and collectible action figures. How do I possess this knowledge, you ask? Do I have a crystal ball?! Nope, but I have seen the video of the Star Wars theme song miraculously transforming this 4-month-old baby from a crying bundle of unhappiness to a happy little smiley nugget of cute.

And it doesn't surprise me. Not just because my son developed his own obsession with Star Wars when he wasn't much older than this infant, but because in my experience, there's a magical "no-cry" song for every baby -- the trick is figuring out which jingle makes your wee one jolly (and how not to go stark raving mad after you've listened to said song eleventy billion times in a row).

For my daughter, it was "The Best Present Ever" by ... Tigger. Yes, that Tigger. (Better name: "The Best Headache Ever.") For my son (during his pre-Star Wars days), it was a random ringtone on my phone. The most offensive one, naturally. Still, better than a screaming baby.

Seriously, the power of music is ... powerful. Watch this:

Awww, little padawan! Go to sleep now, you will.

Is there a special song that makes your baby stop crying?

singing the annoying 5-dollar-foot-long Subway commercial jingle makes my youngest stop crying, anytime, anywhere. It is the strangest thing.

The Snuggle Song by Schnuffel Bunny was the only thing that got us through some horrible nights with our youngest when he would get sick. Thankfully it is a cute song (although it does get annoying when you are trying to sleep).

My sons current song is Crazy Train by "Ozzy Boren" LOL. (I know it is Osbourne but that is what my son calls it)

My sons magic song is The Gummy Bear song. Drives everyone inthe house crazy except me and my hubby, lol. I don't care where I am, if he starts having a fit I play it and he is instant smiles.

My daughter played Nervana for her first one but when her mother-in-law had him it was lightning storm Cd, for me and my mother it was country and Western anything on TV. The second one was the car ride. The third one was late nite TVs and it had to be boring, for naptime it was any talk show or the court room judge programs that were boring. Now it'ts Angry Birds and wherever he drops (hyperactive). My son when he was little was TopGun. After we got rid of his horrible colic. I went through four VHS tapes and own the DVD. Scary. My daughter had to have quiet, but got excited over the firehouse next door. She knew when the bell would ring before we actually heard it go off.
