Sigh: Ivy League School Cuts Little Mermaid Song Over Consent

People were Offended!

Ivy League a cappella group cuts ‘Little Mermaid’ from repertoire amid concerns over consent

A Princeton University a cappella choir started to hum.

A soloist then emerged from the all-male ensemble wearing white tuxedo jackets and black bow ties and burst into song: “There you see her, sitting there across the way. She don’t got a lot to say, but there’s something about her. And you don’t know why, but you’re dying to try — you want to kiss the girl.”

The memorable melody of “Kiss the Girl” from “The Little Mermaid” — and the Princeton Tigertones’s rendition of it — has created a backlash and prompted the a cappella group to remove the Disney tune from its musical repertoire. At issue, it seems, is not only a concern that the lyrics disregard the notion of informed consent but also that the performance plays into it — pulling a man and a woman from the audience, having them dance onstage and, at the end, telling the two to kiss.

Following a scathing op-ed in the Daily Princetonian, the Tigertones saidlast week they will stop performing the song, which the group has been singing for years, at least “until we can arrive at a way to perform it that is comfortable and enjoyable for every member of our audience.” Wesley Brown, president of the Tigertones, wrote in a letter to the editor: “Our group is always striving to impart joy and positivity through our music, and we take very seriously any indication that we fall short of this goal.”

These people just like to suck the joy out of everything. But, hey, get this one
