As adults, some of us look upon those days fondly. For others of us, the memories are not fond. Either way, songs about school are the prompt today on Music Moves Me.
The very first song that popped into my head was not a modern song, but, rather, a song from 1907, written by Gus Edwards and Will Cobb. This song is 100 years old, and brings back the feeling of a simpler, perhaps more innocent, time (note the reference to the "hickory stick", however.)
Let's go back to 1963 when I was still in elementary school. Be True to Your School by the Beach Boys has some wonderful harmonies. Some of us love that school spirit.
Does anyone here remember the 2003 movie "School of Rock"? I had never heard of it, until one of my spouse's cousins (an elementary school teacher!) gave it to us as a gift. I loved that movie, and I highly recommend it. This clip is from the 10th reunion in 2013.
Last but not least...I can't resist this one, because there is a link between this musician and the Binghamton, New York area, where I live.
What are your school memories?
