KidzBopz is one of the most popular music companies on the planet. They have made a fortune from turning popular songs into child-friendly parodies with the lyrics edited to make them much more family-friendly. Their albums have been bought by parents everywhere for their little ones. A lot of the songs focus on instilling a lesson to the listener. Much like TV aimed at young children does with its cartoons and live-action shows.
Today we are going to look at the most famous KidzBopz parodies on YouTube. These songs are perfect choices to entertain your little ones on long car trips or during lunchtime play.
Bad Habits – Ed Sheeran Parody
Ed Sheeran is one of the most popular and acclaimed musicians of the last decade. He consistently releases hit singles and albums that smash sales records. His tours sell out almost instantly and his collabs are always absolute fire. And the KidBop version of the song is no different. Keeping the same beat, the song changes some of the lyrics to make it focus more on friendship and avoiding bad habits in said friendship. The real song focuses very much on matters of a more adult nature. The song has quickly risen to be one of the most popular songs on the KidsBop YouTube channel.
Call Me Maybe – Carley Ray Jepsen
Call Me Maybe was one of the most popular songs in the world after its release. And it faded into the background soon after. A burning star that shone for a brief moment. And Carley Ray Jepsen’s career petered out after. She had a few good collaborations and one new album but never rose to the same heights again. The KidsBop version was just as popular. When it was released it quickly rose to the top of the channel’s rankings. It has since been overtaken but it still holds the title for quickest amassing of a million views for any video on the channel. The lyrics focus on keeping in touch with your friends and sharing good times with them.
Hey There, Delilah – Plain White Tees
A smash hit of the early 2000s and a favorite of indie rockets everywhere. This song was an anthem for the age and is still a very popular song for cheesy discos across the globe. So it should come as no surprise that it is one of the most popular Kidzbop songs as well. The song is more of a comedy than the original version, even having some clean yo mama jokes thrown into a couple of the verses. The song is about friends goofing off together and joking with one another, but with a message of making sure you never take it too far.
Roar – Katy Perry
An anthem for the ages. Roar by Katy Perry was a song meant to inspire women to be unashamedly themselves. To be loud and to be heard in a world that spends so long trying to silence their voice. The women’s rights movement has come a long way but it still has a long way to go before we have true equality. Katy Perry has always been a vocal advocate for women’s rights and her songs reflect that. So it makes sense that the Kidzbop version would follow a similar theme. The song is about young girls not sticking to what society says they should do. It tells them that they can do whatever they like, even join in activities that are seen as traditionally masculine. It is definitely worthy of its spot in the top ten on the YouTube channel.
