Music, Censorship & Linking Up With Mama Kat

Music is a huge part of my life.  Huge.  I've always been the kind of person that has a song cued up for every mood, every situation.  From my record player in the old days to my iPod now.  Unfortunately, I am finding it difficult to find appropriate songs on the radio to listen to, sing along to and dance to with my kids.  Do you know what I mean?  

And what's up with the lazy censor on the radio?  You know the one where you can basically hear what the word says, but only the first consonant is left off.  I don't get it.  

I love the F word maybe more than anyone reading this, but that doesn't mean I say it in front of my kids or want them to say it or sing it.  Along with the A word, the S word and a whole slew of other words.  So what do I do?  What do you do?  

I'm linking up with Mama Kat's vlog prompts this week and talking music and my music dilemma---to censor or not to censor.

In case you missed it, here's the vlog from last week:

  1. Oh, I so relate. It's impossible to listen to the radio with the kids these days! I seriously have to change stations after almost every song to find something halfway appropriate. And my CD player doesn't work in our "big car", so we can't listen to Kidz Bop (since I lost my ipod. SIGH). But really, we LIVE for Kidz Bop. I've bought at least six of the most recent ones, and blast them during breakfast or while we're cleaning. That way, I get my pop hits fix (not ashamed), and I don't have to worry about what the kids are hearing. Win-win.

  2. So far I haven't censored much music-wise, but my daughter loves her music from Yo Gabba Gabba... but she also loves Skrillex lol
