In the year 2000 there is pop that can be catchy, danceable, and good. However, one wouldn't know that by listening to the songs being turned out on American radio--cheesy lyrics, sappy love songs, raunchy suggestions, catches and hooks with no soul. Then comes along Robbie Williams. A former boy band member who proves that pop music can be not only be danceable and catchy, it can also be sarcastic, witty, humorous, fun, introspective, self-effacing and good. The duet "Kids" is a perfect example of that, and it probably won't even be heard ad nauseum on U.S. soil like pop music by the Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, and pop-punk band Blink-182.
Kylie Minogue and Robbie Williams sing with such charm and tongue-in-cheek humor that can turn the parental catchhrase, "doing it for the kids," into a call to arms for a good roll in the hay. Robbie's bad boy persona and charisma even allows him to rap about a certain sexual act without it feeling offensive. Buy this single. It may not be pop music for the kids, but certainly is for the adults.
