I don't know if I am thrilled or disturbed that my 5 year old daughter knows every word and every song to the commercial for "Worship Jams"...Oh sorry, Worship JAMZZZZZZZ. According to the website (whose web address I found after listening to Lulu repeat the entire commercial while playing w/ her new My Little Pony's), Worship Jamz is a compilation of "30 of the most popular praise and worship songs performed by kids for kids. Worship Jams is currently one of the best-selling CD collections on TV. Your children will enjoy hours of singing along with the best praise and worship songs featured on the Worship Jams CD"
Great. First item of business--she is watching WAY TOO MUCH TV, especially Nick Jr. I wish school would start again already. That is major points off for me. It could be really great that she is singing songs that have a positive message (to a rock 'n roll beat). I might actually get this for her. It beats listening to the Dora the Explora' theme song one million times in a row. I am betting that these songs are more then 30 seconds long...thus extending the time I can listen to the album in the car before wanting to slit my wrists. Points for Worship Jamz. Also, anything that she can sing to give us a little break from Annie (still going strong in our house) is a good thing. On the down side, she doesn't even know all the Primary songs and I can just see her belting out some Worship Jamz at church. That isn't even that bad though. Here is my main problem with this collection....it is spelled with a "z". That is minus many, many points. I am surprised they didn't market it as EXTREME Worship Jamz..because we all know that the only thing kids like more then things spelled with a Z is having the word "extreme" in front of it. I just don't think I can pull the trigger....it's that darn Z!!
Jury is still out on this one.............anyone else seen this album or is mine the only 5 year old obsessed with Christian rock compilations?
