I don't think they would imply negative connotations about the tunes
to the kids before they played the songs.  I mean, I don't know how
the "experiment" was conducted, but that doesn't seem to be a good
way to go about it.

Why?  Did you think the comments were too negative?  These were six &
seven year-olds, remember.  I was listening to the New Mickey Mouse 
Club at that age (I had a crush on Nita).  I probably wouldn't have
had too many nice things to say about "classic rock" songs when I was
seven, either.
