Middle Son got a little bit bent out of shape because when I make a music CD for the boys, I haven’t been asking for his input. (This may be because the songs he asks for are akin to “Hit Me Baby, One More Time” and “Genie in a Bottle”.)
So I’m making him his very own disc, but I need help. He’s asked for Naked Brothers’ Band and Britney Spears. I have to change his perspective. (Just in case you think M.S. is completely insane, he also asked for Nick Lowe, so all is not lost. He also likes rockabilly, but I’ve pretty much exhausted that genre.)
Help! He likes lyrics-driven pop with a happy beat. Anything worthwhile out there?
Edit: I’m sorry – I forgot to mention that Middle Son is seven, and going into second grade. This makes a difference. An occasional swear word I can handle, but Gwen Stefanie singing “It’s my shit” through the whole song isn’t gonna make the cut.
