my kids like dat boom boom pow

I think I can speak with limited authority when I say that kids are taught to not like hip hop. We listen to EVERY kind of music in our home. We listen to classical music in our home WAY more than we listen to hip hop. But, all my kids prefer hip hop over every other genre of music. They love it. It makes them dance.

So, my theory? People naturally like hip hop if given the chance. Or, rather, MY people prefer hip hop.

What do you think? What's your experience?

I think most people, including kids, probably gravitate towards anything with high energy. If they only listened to classical music, I bet their favorites would be spirited, happy pieces.

Of course, that's just my theory.

Oh, and, for the record, I'm so three-thousand-and-eight.

Well, I know I like hip hop and I like the BEP's much as I don't want to.

And my kids have heard hip hop from the time they were conceived...and so they will continue.

we were JUST talking about this the other day! jeneva was listening to classical. today we heard and watched a Chinese musical performance. and of course steve insists we listen to hip hop every now and then. jude actually says "listen to hip hop".

I have a confession: I downloaded a few Lecrae songs onto my ipod last week.
My kids adore it.
Don't tell Matt. ;o)
