A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Miley Cyrus continues to distance herself from her Hannah Montana days by accompanying will.i.am on his single "Fall Down." With some sexually suggestive lyrics ("On the bottom, on the top, baby lemme flip you up") and one drug reference ("Boy you get me higher, like your nickname was Mary Jane"), the single is best for young teens and up.

What's the story?
Is it any good?
This uplifting club track might get you out on the dance floor, but it probably won't stay in rotation long on your playlist. With lots of Auto-Tune, Cyrus' voice is barely recognizable on the lame -- and rather boring -- repetitive chorus of "You make my world, you make my world go 'round." And with a whistle-filled intro and an orchestral ending that sounds like it fell out of classic Hollywood, the single comes across as a little schizophrenic.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about the lyrics. Do you think the sexually suggestive verses add anything to the song, or would it have been as good of a song without them?
