Here's the Next Viral Hit: Disney Junior's "DJ Melodies" - SOFIA THE FIRST by John D. Boswell (Melodysheep)

Written by

John D. Boswell (aka melodysheep) has been featured here on THE ROCK FATHER four times in the past, all back in 2012 for his work doing remixes and mashups for PBS Digital Studios, namely massively viral hits based around READING RAINBOW, BOB ROSS, MISTER ROGERS NEIGHBORHOOD and JULIA CHILD. While he's remained plenty busy tackling everything from GAME OF THRONES to STAR WARS, ROBIN WILLIAMS, TERRY CREWS and even "Metal Songs for Kids," now he's back putting a new spin on some familiar television characters - those featured on Disney Junior. Tonight I'm sharing the first installment of "DJ Melodies," a new music video-style short-form series that premieres MONDAY, APRIL 6 on Disney Junior (6:25 p.m. and 6:55 p.m., ET/PT). Check out the infectious new mashup he's done for SOFIA THE FIRST...

Future installments of "DJ Melodies" will feature creations based on SHERIFF CALLIE'S WILD WEST, DOC McSTUFFINS, JAKE AND THE NEVER LAND PIRATES and more. As for this one? The Rock Daughters have already made me play it about a dozen times... but I may have snuck-in a listen or two of my own.
