Name that Tune:    “She turned around and gave that big booty a smack. she hit the floor [She hit the floor], Next thing you know, Shawty got low lo, lo lo, lo, lo, low,” – Apple Bottom Jeans, TPain 

Movie Quote of the Day:  “ If our Lord wasn’t testing us, how would you account for the proliferation, these days, of this obscene rock and roll music, with its gospel of easy sexuality and relaxed morality?” – Footloose 
So, ‘BFG Weddings’ was on again last night and during the show I was text (texted?) by a friend, asking if I was going to let A have a spray tan for her 6th birthday. 
    I wasn’t… but I might now after seeing the programme.  I am also hoping that my mum also gets her Mother of the Bride outfit from Wigan Market.
I asked both childerbeast in the morning if they wanted  a spray tan and got the response I was hoping for which was:- “What’s a spray tan?”
There were some ‘interesting’ dance moves from the young ones on the show too and I have to say, I have had first hand experience of age-inappropriate dance routines in my line of work, where at times it was hard to decide whether to go for the reaction “Wow?” or “Woah!”  Music TV has a lot to answer for.
 A nation of paedophiles sitting at home in their mum’s basements were doubtless glued to their portable TV’s last night between 9 and 10 or are iPlayering the programme again as we speak and having a good old chug.
On the subject of Music TV and over-sexualised song lyrics my own 5 year old (ok so she’s almost 6 but come on…) has recently dropped JLS’s ‘Beat Again’ from her karaoke repertoire and switched allegiance to the Kesha track ‘Tik Tok’.  This tune is on Just Dance 2 but I cannot be blamed for this, as when we were scrolling through the choice of dance tracks she said “Ooh I love this one” so was already familiar with it from somewhere??? 
So, we chose that track and started to dance and for those of you unfamiliar with this particular track click here: – Kesha Tik Tok
And the lyrics go a little something like this:-
“Aint got a care in world, but got plenty of beer
Aint got no money in my pocket, but I’m already here
Now, the dudes are lining up cause they hear we got swagger
But we kick em to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger
I’m talking about – everybody getting crunk, crunk
Boys trying to touch my junk, junk
Gonna smack him if he getting too drunk, drunk
Now, now – we goin til they kick us out, out
Or the police shut us down, down”
Don’t get me wrong, it’s an extremely catchy number and I do like it but:
“Boys tryin’ to touch my junk!  Are you serious?  Not the kind of thing I need to hear my almost 6 year old singing. 
    I don’t want to go all Mary Whitehouse or the Preacher dude from ‘Footloose’ but has pop music (did I even just say that out loud?) always been so overtly sexual? or is it just dawning on me now because my kid is watching the Mr Men Show and dressing on her toy dog in little outfits one minute, and the next she is swaggering round the house with her MP3 on and squawking lyrics like “Before I leave, brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack” or her other favourite – Katy Perry-  “Put your hands on me in my skin tight jeans”.
I must be getting old.
Along a similar vein, today we had to abort a lollipop prize giving in class for our historical quiz winners because, on closer inspection, the lollies purchased for the prizes were emblazoned with slogans.  These were along the lines of:- Je’taime,  Kiss me, and (I shit you not)  Mange Moi!
Prize-giving postponed until more appropriate lollies could be purchased.
Pity we don’t live in Oz and then we could have just handed out some of these bad boys, which incidentally are really tasty. (and I defy you not to at least supress an immature snigger).
