LOS ANGELES (Heewack News Network) -- Recording artists Maroon 5 partied long into the night upon learning that their current hit, "Makes Me Wonder," made the final cut for inclusion on the newly released CD "Kidz Bop 12."
"Up to this point, I've been reluctant to say that we've 'arrived,'" said an ecstatic Adam Levine, the group's lead singer. "But I think I can say it now: we've arrived!"
The Kidz Bop series includes cover versions of pop songs featuring enthusiastic children. Since its first launch, more than 800 billion copies of Kidz Bop CDs have sold--enough to pay off the national debt of the U.S. and provide a surplus for years to come.
"'Makes Me Wonder' is the perfect song for our Kidz Bop singers," said Kidz Bop spokesman Sid Gravel. "Adam's whiny falsetto is an ideal pitch for both soprano and alto girls, as well as pre-pubescent boys who desire to get lost in the joy of music without fear of having to sound like a man."
Maroon 5 bassist James Valentine noted that not even the Beatles or Rolling Stones have ever had a song recorded for Kidz Bop. "We're in rarified air now," he said, adding that the group also appeared this year on "American Idol," which neither the Beatles or Stones did in their careers, either.
