There have been a few Boxtrolls trailers hitting the airwaves and while I try to determine the music in all of them, I can bring you this trailer. Let’s start with this: Simon Pegg + animation = BRING IT ON. Not the cheerleading movie, although let’s be real, that movie is great. No, I mean bring on The BoxTrolls.

The song in this trailer is “You’re So Square (Baby I Don’t Care) by Cee Lo Green. Well, it’s not by him. This version is by him. The original version is actually a Buddy Holly song and let’s be real, it’s grand. The song was originally penned in 1957 by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller and has also been recorded by the one and only Elvis Presley on Jailhouse Rock.The song has also been recorded by Led Zeppelin, Joni Mitchell, Queen, Brian Setzer and John Lennon among others. I believe that officially makes it the coolest song you had never heard until now.

Lyrics
You don’t like crazy music.
You don’t like rockin’ bands.
You just wanna go to a movie show,
And sit there holdin’ hands.
You’re so square.
Baby, I don’t care.

You don’t like hotrod racin’
Or drivin’ late at night.
You just wanna park where it’s nice and dark.
You just wanna hold me tight.
You’re so square.
Baby, I don’t care.

You don’t know any dance steps that are new,
But no one else could love me like you do, do, do, do.

I don’t know why my heart flips.
I only know it does.
I wonder why I love you, baby.
I guess it’s just because
You’re so square.
Baby, I don’t care.
