DALLAS—You've probably heard Cee Lo Green's smash hit "Forget You" on the radio--but the low down on the down load version is a little different--just replace "Forget" with the "F" Bomb.
Green's song is number four on the Billboard 100 while Pink checks in at number seven with a touching song titled "F__king Pefect."
The Enrique Iglesias song "Tonight I'm Loving You" sounds tame--but the download version--just replace "Loving You" with "F__king You."
High School student Lois Henderson has a not so secret, secret.
"Well, the radio version is what every mom hears and they think it is okay," Lois said. "But they don't know what the teen is downloading off of iTunes which is also the profanity version."
Monisha Randolph is the director of teen programs at Girls Incorporated of Metropolitan Dallas.
With parental consent--she uses the songs in a media literacy course, the girls listen to the music and then discus the lyrics.
Monisha said the program doesn't sugarcoat anything.
"We're not trying to control what the girls listen to," Monisha said. "We encourage the girls to express their individuality and appreciate the individuality of others but we just want them to make well informed decisions on the music they listen to."
Dallas Observer editor and music critic Noah Bailey says artists have been dropping lyrical "F" bombs for a long time--when he was a kid he would seek out and buy CD's with swear words.
The only thing unusual now is the logjam "F" bomb songs at the top of the charts.
"It's not that shocking now in this day and age, really," Noah said. "The fact that we are talking about the songs is probably why they are called that is because they get free publicity for having such an outlandish song title."
But not all kids, including Alejandra Flores, are buying into the salty songs.
"I don't think it's appropriate," Alejandra said. "It just shows how our youth is like coming to and how uncreative the songs are getting."
Elysse Alvarado agreed
"It's almost degrading as in that's all we listen to," Elysse said. "I think it also shows how sex and cuss words sell over real talent."
Artists like Cee Lo Green might have the lyrical response.
"F*#k you and f*# you too."
