Kidz Bop has been torturing parents of kids with a sh*tty taste in music for 15 years now. In the latest edition, Kidz Bop 27, Satan’s prepubescent army of high-pitched demons covers Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” (gross), Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” (no thank you), and if you want to buy the Target-only disc, “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” from Frozen (hard pass).
But the real standout, truly Kidz Bop’s “Strawberry Fields Forever,” is Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass,” which gets the requisite scrubbing of anything even vaguely offensive, including “boom boom” and “sh*t” being swapped out with “dance moves” and a word that isn’t “sh*t”.
Oh, and it sounds like fake-Trainor is bringing back anal. Have a listen around 1:25 in.
The actual line is, “I’m bringing it all back,” but no, just like T-Swift is singing about “Starbucks lovers” in “Blank Space,” this would-be diva is definitely belting, “I’m bringing anal back.”
I miss the innocence dayz, when kidz loved Evanescence and everything made sense.
