How is it that a character who only has one line can also carry the strongest emotional punch of the entire MCU? The power of simplicity and emotional generosity is why my gift to Groot consists mostly of mainstream pop music: underestimated and dismissed as stupid or shallow, pop music actually reaches it’s arms (branches?) straight into our bodies and manipulates our heart parts (in a good way). It’s also fun to dance to, and we all know Groot loves to boogie.
