Jingle Jangle Jungle Goes Back To Skool
Time again for Monday’s Music Moves Me! We have a fun theme for you today. The theme for today is ‘songs about school’. Last year, I had quite a popular post with some back to school songs that I used in a Friday Five segment, so my work was cut out for me to come up with five more songs this year. Actually, it really wasn’t that hard once I started thinking about it :)
Alright boys and girls it's time to take off your dunce caps, and put on your thinking hats! It’s time to get back to school!
In effort to cut down on the time it takes for the post to load, I've put all of the songs in a playlist.
- "ABC" is a 1970 number-one hit by The Jackson 5. It was released on February 24. "ABC" knocked The Beatles' Let It Be off the top of the Billboard Hot 100 in 1970, and was number one on the soul singles chart for four weeks.
- "Adult Education" is a song by American duo Daryl Hall & John Oates, released as a single on February 18, 1984. The song is featured on the duo's second compilation album Rock 'n Soul Part 1. It was one of two new tracks that were recorded specifically for the compilation release and hit number eight on the US Billboard Hot 100. This song was featured in the 2013 video game Grand Theft Auto V.
- "Another Brick in the Wall" is the title of three songs set to variations of the same basic theme, on Pink Floyd's 1979 rock opera, The Wall, subtitled Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. All parts were written by Pink Floyd's bassist, Roger Waters.
- "Teacher, Teacher" is by 38 Special and appears on the album Flashback: The Best Of .38 Special (1987).
- "My Old School" is a single drawn from Steely Dan's 1973 album Countdown to Ecstasy. It reached number 63 in the Billboard charts. The song was written by Donald Fagen and Walter Becker and is in the key of G major. The original studio track features a guitar solo by Jeff Baxter.
What are some of your favorite back to school songs?
