Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this upbeat song about the unpredictability of life has a positive message about accepting change.
What's the story?
This single from Nickolodeon's upcoming movie musical, Spectacular!, is a spirited, all-cast-on-deck number that's one never-ending crescendo. EVERYTHING CAN CHANGE is about not being able to predict or control everything that happens in life, and how sometimes things turn out differently than what we expected.
Is it any good?
The song doesn't stand alone as well as another one of the show's singles, "Don't Tell Me." While it starts out strong, it needs a context, a "performance," or at least a connection to the characters to avoid becoming repetitive and predictable. But the message -- we can't control everything in life, and sometimes it's good to be surprised by what we leave to chance or fate -- is hard to take issue with.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about the recent popularity of musicals and how every TV channel seems to be making one since the success of High School Musical. Do you think HSM is a hard act to follow? Since each track in a musical is an essential part of the story, can you relate to the story from listening to only one song? This song is about life's tendency to go in surprising directions. Can you think of a time in your life when something went the way you least expected it to?
