A terrifying prospect for most adult music fans this week, as the 23rd (yes, twenty third) instalment in the Kidz Bop series is released today. Parents beware, your favourite pop songs are up for the Kidz Bop treatment once more. Featuring child session singers, the Kidz Bop series records ‘child friendly’ versions of popular songs and this time around, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars get their songs all re-done with some pre-pubescent warbling over the top. All your favourite songs, then, as you never wanted to hear them. Unless you’re like, eight years old… and maybe not even then. Still, clearly someone’s listening. And buying. Otherwise they wouldn’t keep making them. And they wouldn’t have so many Gold certificates under their belts.
