Monday's Music Moves Me ~ School Days, School Days....



Welcome to a Monday's Music Moves Me, the fantabulistic music meme hosted by me, my dearest of friends Dolly from XmasDolly, Larry from Cakeblast, Callie from Jamerican Spice and the wonderful Stacy from Stacy Uncorked. This week's theme is Songs that Have to do With School!

This is the first song that came to mind when this theme came up and I LOVE this video of it, almost as I love the Staples commercial that used the song.....

School's Out ~ Alice Cooper and The Muppets (yep, I said Muppets)

I think of my oldest son, Nikolaus when he was in 6th grade and Bill asked him why he sat in the front row of this particular class when he sat in the back of all the other classes... then we met the teacher: a very pretty, young, blond who was..... "well developed," should I say? Bill told Nikolaus that he would have sat in the front row, too. Here is.....

Hot for Teacher ~ Van Halen

These next two are actually something that helped me in English class during my school years, but were shown during Saturday morning cartoons and I really loved them and I can still remember them. There was a whole series on several subjects (which I now own on DVD) but these are the two that are my favorites - and use for answers on Jeopardy!.....

Interjections! ~ Schoolhouse Rock

Preamble ~ Schoolhouse Rock

This next group is another one that Bill and I were able to see live in concert, let me tell you, it was the LOUDEST concert we have ever been to, but it was AWESOME!

School Days (School of Rock) ~ AC/DC

*** Just one thing, please...
We are family friendly blogs and while we don't want to censor anyone,
we do ask that you keep your songs rated PG13 or less.
If you find that you need to post songs of an explicit sexual nature or language,
please find a different venue.
Thank you very much!***

If you weren't already awesome for posting Alice Cooper with the muppets, you're super duper awesome for bringing back School House Rock!

Colette S said...

School house rock totally rocks! Of course I was wee bit but growing up I heard and now I remember.

Enjoy music hopping!

And I thought everyone would be stumped on this one. I thought there weren't that many songs out there about school, but I guess I was wrong. There's so many I forgot about & some I didn't know. I'm going to see everyone first then I'll be out of commission for awhile to see if I can fix my computer. Talk at ya later,
