Kidzbop.

"They were playing Kidzbop when I dropped Munchkin at pre-school today."

"What is Kidzbop? Dare I ask?"

"It's basically Top 40 music but sung by a group of little kids."

"Wow. Something potentially more annoying that Muzak!"

"Yes, but that's not the point."

"What is the point?"

"The Kidzbop they were playing this morning was Nelly's 'Ride Wit Me.'"

"Which one is that?"

"If you wanna go and take a ride wit me, we three-wheelin in the fo' with the gold D's, oh why do I live this way...hey, must be the money!"

"You serious?"

"Yes, but they gloss over the drug references. 'Smoke an L in the back of the Benz-y' becomes just ride in the back of the Benz-y."

"So abject materialism over drugs."

"Something like that."

"Well, it could always be worse, I suppose."

"You think?"

"We could have a bunch of kids singing Nelly's 'Hot in Herre' instead."

Wish I had thought about that one. The people that put those things together are definitely rolling in the abject materialism.

My daughter keeps asking to have the kidzbop CD's, but I wouldn't want her listening to the original songs...so why would it matter if kids are singing them? The "love" songs bug me too.
