The KIDZ BOP version of "Thrift Shop" by Mackelmore and Ryan Lewis featuring Wanz:
But it gets even worse...
Yes, true believers... the "Kidz Bop Kids" and their Masters have dropped another, 16-track sonic bomb upon the brainwashed masses (after all, someone is buying this stuff and propelling it up the Billboard Top 200 Charts)....
1. "Thrift Shop" (Macklemore & Ryan Lewis featuring Wanz)
2. "I Knew You Were Trouble" (Taylor Swift)
3. "Suit & Tie"(Justin Timberlake featuring Jay Z)
4. "Beauty and a Beat"(Justin Bieber featuring Nicki Minaj)
5. "Ho Hey" (The Lumineers)
6. "Come & Get It" (Selena Gomez)
7. "Feel This Moment" (Pitbull featuring Christina Aguilera)
8. "Scream & Shout"(will.i.am featuring Britney Spears)
9. "Girl on Fire" (Alicia Keys)
10. "I Love It" (Icona Pop featuring Charli XCX)
11. "Can't Hold Us" (Macklemore & Ryan Lewis featuring Ray Dalton)

15. "Just Give Me a Reason" (Pink featuring Nate Ruess)

A "Deluxe Edition" is also available through iTunes, subjecting listeners to additional torture through covers of Baauer's "Harlem Shake," a video for Icona Pop's "I Love It," and more. Once again, if you absolutely, positively must-have KIDZ BOP 24, please purchase it through one of the links that I've included so that I can at least make a small profit from your poor taste and lack of judgement, just as Razor & Tie makes a massive one.
So you want some good music to share with your kids? Looking for hip-hop? Check out Secret Agent 23 Skidoo. A little bit of that similar funk with a bit of pop-rock flavor tossed in? Try Mista Cookie Jar and the Chocolate Chips. Punk Rock? The Boogers. Folksy rock? Poochamungas. Alternative Rock? The Not-Its, Caspar Babypants, Recess Monkey or Justin Roberts. Music for Princesses? Moey's Music Party. There's music out there for every occasion, and it doesn't have to involve repackaged, sub-par covers. Somewhere, I still have a copy of a KIDS INCORPORATED album that was released way back in 1984 (nearly 30 years ago!)... now there's a group of kids that could pull off a decent cover song.
My wife wants to know how my opinion will change on the KIDZ BOP series by the time my girls are in the 7-8 range. I say it won't change at all.
