you belong to meYou guys, prepare to die of cute. Prepare for your inevitable demise at the hands of an adorable little girl and her pink toy guitar-playing dad as they sing "Tonight You Belong to Me." Dad Benjamin Ames wanted to distract his daughter, who couldn't fall asleep because she thought she was hearing fireworks. Was she? Well ... I don't hear any. But she interrupts the song several times to tell her dad exactly how they should pause whenever they hear fireworks.

If you've ever tried to do something with a little interrupter, you'll relate. It's exasperating! But Ames shows a lot of patience with his daughter. Just so you know, they do finally get through the whole song. If daddy-daughter harmonies make you melt, you'll want to hang in there past the one-minute mark. I think it's worth it. But of course, the interruptions are funny, too.

I love how she knows all the words! I feel like every child needs at least one classic they can sing all the way through (or almost) with their parents. Every kid needs a song that comforts them at night when there are so many strange sounds.

It's kind of a long video (sad that 3:12 minutes is considered long ...), but if you have the time, they get to the horn section around the two-minute mark. It just ratchets up the charming hilarity even more. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to watch this video yet again and dissolve into a puddle of estrogen and sentimentality under my desk here.

Do your kids have favorite songs they like to sing with you?
