Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that tweens will want to listen to this song over and over again because it's the first CD single from the popular Naked Brothers Band. There's absolutely nothing to worry about here except getting this mindless pop rock tune out of your head.

What's the story?

For the first single off their first album, The Naked Brothers Band brings us a very catchy song about loving what you do, even with the pressures of being a star. The real and on-screen brothers (and their band) sing their hearts out while having fun with "IF THAT'S NOT LOVE."

Is it any good?

QUALITY

Unfortunately, the lyrics don't make much sense -- and aren't well-written either: "We've got the music in our blood/Magical seasons and then we're done/Magical feeling has begun/Magical feeling has begun." Huh? What does come across is a bunch of kids valuing friendship and music and having a good time. Things could be worse.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the pressures of being a celebrity and of being on TV. Tweens, how do you feel about fame? Would you like to be famous? Why or why not? Families can also discuss the challenges of following your dreams. What aspirations do kids have and why? Is there anything you can do now to start preparing for your goals?

Great song! (:

It's very nostalgic and it makes me think of younger times when I was in elementary school and this was my very favourite show ("If That's Not Love" was the theme song). (:
