The Inappropriate-for-Young-Ears Mix

Haven't been in a ranting mood lately, so you're getting another Angry Boy post. (Sorry. Maybe the Post will run an article about 4-year-olds with cell phones and that will set me off or something...)

The only song he wanted to listen to on the way to school today:
Rilo Kiley's "Portions for Foxes." Three times.

Sample inappropriate lyric:

And the talking leads to touching
And the touching leads to sex
And then there is no mystery left

The only song he wanted to listen to on the way home from school today: "Under the Sea" from The Little Mermaid Soundtrack. Four times.

Sample inappropriate lyric:

Darling, it's better down where it's wetter
Take it from me

Oddly, I can't decide which song I like singing along to more.

Under The Sea is only inappropriate if you have a boy who (A) has discovered girls and (B) can see Ariel. Because she is, as we all know, very hot. And I don't say that sort of thing often, because I don't like to objectify women. Mermaids, apparently, don't get the same courtesy.

I'm the one who considered rapping Baby Got Back the other day because I couldn't recall the words to Rapture.

Of course, I play I Want Candy on occasion. Hey, as far as he knows, it's a song about candy.

And "Portions for Foxes" is about woodland creatures.

APL I think you've gone off the deep end... OK, I don't know the Portions for Foxes song, but it does certainly sound a little PG-13 to me...

But "Under the Sea"? Are you serious? I've heard all the theories about how Disney puts sneaky sex references in its movies all the time... but I have never noticed any of them... "down where its wetter"??? I mean,... its Under the Sea damnit! Of Course its wetter!

I'm as immature as anyone (and prone to finding sexual innuendo where it doesn't exist)... but this one is going too far.

LOL! I didn't realize Disney songs were so "dirty".

Kid L is currently walking around around singing "Baby got Back". Thank you XM radio!

You've got nothing on me. I made a little kid-friendly mix CD for the car the other day. "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah," "Silent E," some of the tracks from that awesome "For the Kids" cd that Liz sent me (thanks, Liz!) And, for no good reason, Joni Mitchell's "Raised on Robbery."

Won't it be cute when Baby Blue starts singing "son of a bitch?"

Love that Rilo Kiley song. Seems like my hand is reaching for the volume knob to turn it down at certain moments more and more often.

HAHAHA! I never realized that about the Under The Sea lyrics!

And then there's the whole saga of the graphics department for "The Little Mermaid" included the penis-as-castle-turret. We mustn't forget that. Disney's got lots of crazy-sexed-up folks who want to slip one past the execs... hey, that sounds dirty.

I gave up long ago. It's hard kicking it with Public Enemy (Hi! We're so white!) and not thinking it's cute when your kid goes along.

Totally missed the innuendo of "Down where it's wetter". Now it's all that I can think about.

You have effectively ruined The Little Mermaid for me! Oh well. Life's more interesting when viewed through perverted lenses.

Yay for Rilo Kiley.
