Is any one else watching Noggin or Nickelodeon? Has any one else been subjected to the Jump Arounds that they now play every half hour? Is any one else fears for their sanity when one of those damn songs keep playing in their head and you just can’t get it out and the husband is “borrowing” your iPod so you don’t have any music to get it out and you feel your brain slowly being eaten away? Is it just me? What precious information have I lost to make room for their songs to be an automatic repeat in my head?
You know, I was so good, so careful over what the boys listened to. A couple of my friends gave them carefully screened CDs. We never watched Barney. If I was annoyed by the show, we didn’t watch it again like The Doodlebops. The kid music we listened to was interesting, beautiful, and not annoying at all. Then Nickelodeon comes along and ruins it.
I debated looking into their website and doing a little research for this post, but I have one of their songs stuck in my brain. Does any one have an ice pick?
I also debated on hooking up a song or video to inform the readers who don’t know what the hell I’m talking about, but I assume that I would be breaking a law form the Geneva Convention for torture. Plus I like you all too much to do that to you. Though I think we have another extreme questioning technique or whatever the Bush lawyers called it.
I just want know why these music and TV execs think that kid’s music has to be bland, annoying, and repetitive. And can we say out of date? Not old school, out of date. Because who does a lame rap segment in the middle of a song any more? And it’s not even the black guy. It’s the white guy. Really. (If I offend any one by not using names, it’s because I’m trying to block out these commercials like blocking out horrific battle scenes and cannot force myself to go to their website to find out the band members names, who do not look like kids but twenty-somethings.)
So now I’m going to drop in a CD and try to get this torture out of my head. As for you, I am opening the floor to those who would like to complain about horrible kid music.
