Though this is one of their better discs in safe content for young kids it still bugs me. It's shocking the rise of songs unsuitable for their age range.
Most of the songs, like "Scooby-Doo", "The Monster Mash", "This Is Halloween", and "The Addams Family" are fun and kid-friendly. But...well, there was a problem with "Thriller".
Now, I'm not saying that the song wasn't good. I've heard the original only a handful of times, but I loved both this version and the original. But it's scary. There's a talking part at the end. And two lines of that part go,
"Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse's shell"
Someone on this site addressed that issue. But they also said that the record company probably edited that part. Well...they didn't.
It's not the "hell" part that I'm worried about. Heck, when I was younger my dad would play Smash Mouth for me! But as far as I'm concerned, it's not really all that good an idea to let a second grader listen to a guy with a scary-sounding voice talking about rotting inside a corpse's shell. When I was in second grade, I couldn't even watch "The Little Mermaid" because I was scared of the Sea Witch. I can't speak for every seven-year-old in the world, but I can say that I know plenty of seven-year-olds who would be scared of this.
I also find it ironic that they edited "pelvic thrust" in "Time Warp", when they were talking about a dance, but they did not edit "hounds of hell".
So if you are a parent, and you want to get this for your kid, just beware "Thriller". This is Kidz Bop's most well done CD, so don't freak about something that you can easily skip over. I just wanted to make sure that parents knew about this.
Must stand and face the hounds of hell,
and rot inside a corpse's shell
Now would you really want some 6 year old listening to that? I bet they don't even have that talking part at the end. Oh, and I would love to know exactly how they got permission from Micheal Jackson :o
