Countering Monster Music

Went to Hotel Transylvania 3 with my daughter. [spoiler alert] The climax of the movie is the unleashing of a monster to destroy all other monsters and the way to give life to that most evil of evil monsters is through playing a dance beat. I was amused by that plot development. To counter it the good guy monsters played 3 songs to destroy the capacity of the evil thing to be moved by the dance music. They play Good Vibrations followed by Don’t Worry Be Happy follow by The Macarena.
Yawn. I would have used Helen Reddy or Moxy Früvous for igniting the villain. Then to counter it, sticking with the producers template of three songs building in goodness-musical-intensity, I’m thinking Breezin’ by George Benson followed by Cissy Houston’s version of Bridge Over Troubled Water followed by The Champs doing Tequila.
