It turns out that babies absolutely LOVE the Eastenders theme song

Who knew?

IF THERE’S ONE thing we can all agree on, it’s that the Eastenders theme song is a pure, unadulterated banger.

But did you know that it’s also beloved by babies? The Eastenders theme song is to babies what Mr. Brightside is to drunken Irish people. 

Just look at these twins bopping away to their Mam’s acapella rendition of the theme song.

Their delighted little faces!

It has a hypnotic quality that leaves babies utterly transfixed.

Look at the way this little lady stares at the screen once the drums kick in.

It can also act as a sort of lullaby.

Case in point? This six-month-old stops crying the second it starts playing.

And an instant stress reliever.

*deep exhale*

There. That’s better.

There are dozens of videos of babies enjoying the Eastenders theme music on YouTube.

They might surpass ‘funny cat videos’ as the best internet video genre.
