Recently, my son and I were enjoying an event organized by our local parks district, when I found myself bopping along to some familiar tunes. Obviously, there was a healthy serving of songs from the Frozensoundtrack as well as some more classics. In between Let It Go and Under the Sea I noticed a few contemporary pop songs which had been remixed by a children’s band.

If you haven’t heard of this disturbing phenomenon (lucky you!), it’s called Kidz Bop and you can read a hilarious description of exactly why I hate it HERE.

At the time, I didn’t know any of this and was innocently singing along with the lovely falsetto of a young boy’s voice when suddenly I stopped, frozen (no, not the song this time!).

Did I just hear a six year old sing the line “I want to hear you scream my name?”
