"They're adults. They're allowed to have fun whenever they want. We're kids, we're supposed to work."
- George Michael Bluth
|21 albums and counting...|
Sigh, if only that were true. It'd be nice to have the roles reversed every once in a while. Kids don't know how good they have it. They don't have to worry about work or bills or adult-onset diabetes... that's the life. Kids get to play all day, eat whatever they want, watch Nickelodeon without having to lie about it, and best of all, they get to listen to Kidz Bop. What's Kidz Bop?
Kidz Bop is a brand of compilation albums featuring child session musicians performing contemporary music. The albums are composed of "kid-friendly" versions of the latest songs on Top 40 radio and are sung by young children.
Kidz Bop is just the best. It takes pop music, waters it down (more than it already is), then lets kids sing the vocals! How has a Kidz Bop album never won a Grammy? Oh yeah, Grammys are only for people named Adele.
|Sorry Little Jimmy, Adultz Bop is for adultz only|
Obviously, I'm joking. Kidz Bop is the one of the very worst ideas of the 21st century. (Right up there with Zune.) BUT, with kids already having it as good as they do and dabbling in our grown-up muzak, I feel like we should return the favor. That's right, kiddies... it's time for Adultz Bop. Don't look now, but we're taking all your sing-a-longs, nursery rhymes, and Disney tunes, adultifying them and having a party. And sorry children, much like Facebook circa 2005, it's for adults only.
