Music Review: Finally It’s Christmas

From a young age, I’ve grown up listening to boy-bands. N’Sync, the Backstreet Boys, Boys II Men, the Jonas Brothers… these are all bands whose music I spent most of my childhood listening to. And I’m not ashamed to admit that I still listen to this type of music often.  Because even if the majority of them generally appeal to […]

Music Review: “Look What You Made Me Do” (CD Single)

Here at A Kid’s Point of View, I respect everyone’s opinions… including those who like Taylor Swift… but I’ve got to be honest. Her new song “” from her upcoming sixth album “reputation,” is making me wonder WHAT IN THE WORLD has music become?! While the song sort of has potential with its dark, indie-pop […]

Music Review: “At This Moment/If You Don’t Know Me by Now” (CD Single)

love+war is fairly new to the indie music scene (I hadn’t heard of them until a few weeks ago), but their music is amazing! The Nashville-based duo (consisting of writer-producer team Coury Palermo & Ron Robinson) just released their latest concept album, Nine Lives— a 9-track album that consists of covers from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, […]

Over the past several decades, there have been thousands of Disney Channel original TV shows and movies. However, only a select few have really proven to be successful… such as That’s So Raven. Airing from 2003 to 2007, it was the first show in Disney Channel history to make the 100-episode mark. When the series premiered on […]

I have to be honest here, Disney Channel was a large part of my childhood. Some of my earliest memories involve rocking out to Disney CDs on my portable CD player. These albums often consisted of songs by artists such as Aly & AJ, the Jonas Brothers, and Miley Cyrus– some of the most popular Hollywood Records artists […]

Music Review: “Scars To Your Beautiful” (CD Single)

It’s something that’s been written about before. Songs such as Britt Nicole’s crossover hit “Gold,” Kelly Clarkson’s “Breakaway,” or Beyonce’s “Listen” all have this recurring theme: inner beauty and what happens if you believe in yourself. The underlying message is even present within various forms of Disney media, such as the 2008 children’s song “Fly […]

Music Review: Beautiful Awakening

Does anyone remember Stacie Orrico’s song “I’m Not Missing You?” One of the most popular songs of 2006, this upbeat pop/R&B track was different from any other breakup song. Instead of lamenting the relationship that once was, the lyrics talk about leaving behind the past and moving on with your life after a breakup. It […]

If someone asked me who I thought performed this song after hearing it for the first time, I probably would’ve guessed Maroon 5. I would’ve never guessed that one of the Jonas Brothers wrote it. Calling themselves “your new favorite band,” the alternative pop-rock group DNCE is already charting on the Billboard Hot 100 with […]

Every year, various artists release their versions of Christmas music. Most of the time, the artists have changed the sound of these holiday classics– either to establish their sound as musicians (i.e. Shane & Shane’s 2008 album “Glory In The Highest“), or to fit in with the popular styles of music (for example, Idina Menzel’s […]
