Here's the thing. I am not normally a hip-hop or rap kinda person. And the thought of hip-hop made especially for kids just sounds like a bad idea. Bad Idea. But I was listening to one of the Kidzapalooza CDs the other day and the funk sound coming outta this song really captured my attention. By the time I finished listening to it, I had to admit that this was actually something worth listening to again.
I found this video for the song on YouTube and my 6-year-old really had a lot of fun watching it and dancing along to it. His dance style right now is some what reminiscent of break dancing so it was totally up his alley. I love the little "weird" girl in the video, who just happens to be his 5-year-old daughter. You gotta love the freedom she exudes by doing what she wants and proclaiming that, "I gotta be me!" Man, if I could dress like that and go to work every day . . . how awesome would that be!? I'm pretty sure that my boss would not except the excuse of, "I gotta be me!" Enjoy it now while you can kids.
Have a cool Friday everyone! And here's hoping that you get at least one chance today to do something totally unique and let everyone know, "I Gotta Be Me!"
The song is from the debut album Easy. Get more samples of songs from the album at the Secret Agent 23 Skidoo website.
