Ahhhhh . . .My Ears!

So, in an effort to put an end to the Justin Timberlake SexyBack constant loop that has been playing in my car (I'm really not kidding when I say Alexis LOVES that song), I ventured to Target to buy her some of her own music. I played with the buttons in the store and we sampled some tunes. Alexis decided she could boogey down to "She'll be Coming 'Round the Mountain" and I thought we had a winner. Now, the sample music was expensive Disney CDs. Being the genius that I am, I though to myself "How different could the $6 CD possibly be? It's the same songs." WRONG.

So I get the CD in the car and turn it on. I'm thinking it's going to be people who just never managed to make it big singing kid songs to pay the bills. Uh, no. It was a man and a woman that sounded like they were as tone deaf as a rock but took themselves REALLY seriously. I think they locked themselves in a closet with an electronic keyboard. The musical geniuses that they clearly are, they tortured small children and forced them to sing along. The kids definately sound abused, I'm not joking. They managed to make "This Old Man" the most depressing song I've ever heard (How do you make "Knick Knack Paddy Wack" depressing? you may ask. Trust me, it can be done.). Anyway, my ears were bleeding after scanning about eight songs, Alexis was screaming her head off, and then Justin brought the SexyBack and all was right with the world.

Moral of the story: don't go cheap on kids music. Trust me.
