Trashy Shorts: Kidz Bop 27

My boys and I heard a high-pitched squeal coming from the electronics department at the local Wal-Mart last night, followed by an excited proclamation that sounded a little something like this:  "OMG, they have Kidz Bop 27!!!!!!!"

I started to look around for the weirdo only to realize that it was actually I who had squealed in feverish delight over the CD, and that I'd gotten so worked up about it that I'd blacked out for a few seconds.

When I came to, I was clutching the CD tightly to my chest, already pushing my boys in the cart toward the 20-items-or-less checkout lane.

Goddammit, I love Kidz Bop.  It's the only music my boys and I can agree on in the car.

Don't forget to click here to like the Facebook page that I FINALLY made for Trashy Blog.  Thank you!!

  1. The kids and I used to love Kidz Bop too. Now we listen to the trashy or smutty versions on the radio, because they are teenagers and I am tired.

    1. Oh, hell, they hear those versions, too. Kidz Bop is what we listen to in the mornings on the way to school and work to remind us how to be "normal." Ha

  2. Dang I forgot about Kids Bop. My oldest is 19 so he's pretty much over it, but time for the youngins to experience it. I just wish all these celebrities would stop ruining it with their versions of the songs.

    1. You do NOT have a 19-year-old! From the couple of pictures I've seen that go along with your comments, there is NO WAY you are old enough to have a 19-year-old!

  3. OMG! How is it that I have a three year old and never knew about Kidz Bop?!?! I checked out the track listing on the most recent one & she knows and likes most of the songs rom the radio (and I can tolerate them). She absolutely adores Fancy ("I-G-G-Y") and All About That Bass ("all a baba bass, no trouble")

    1. YES! And they change the words so that they're not so slutty--although I don't normally mind slutty. But I suppose the alternate versions are better for the kids. :) My 3-year-old sings it the same way! Too cute.

    2. I heard that the Kidz Bop version of Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" is worse, actually. The kids say, "I'm bringing it all baaaaack" (instead of "I'm bringing booty back"), but critics are saying it sounds like the kids are saying "I'm bringing ANAL baaaaack!"

      Did I just ruin that song for you? Yea? Awesome. My job is done here. :)
