It is school time my friend and I know that because I heard the newly arrived college kids in my town laughing at me while I was running the track last night. The Sounds of Fall. So for lunch today, I thought we could bite into some good music that will get your minds off the sounds of chalk screeching down a black board.
Pink Floyd comes to represent the best part of my education. The flying pig band continues to speak of non-conformity and independence from social structure that inhibit free will and thought. Enjoy how great it is not to be legally obligated to enter another schoolroom.
What are your favorite school theme songs?
We know that school was a drag, but sometimes a cool teacher would make it bearable. They were the teachers who hit play on the VCR and let you eat in class. They would start showing holiday films right after Thanksgiving break and discuss the Eagles despicable game plan on Mondays. This is a tribute to all the great teachers that have molded young American minds.
Who was your favorite teacher in school? (be honest this is not a job interview)
Now we get to Philadelphia. Home of some of the most screwed up schools in our fledging, philistine republic. We got the music: top 10 Rappers in Philly History. I hope all you new college students roaming the streets of Philly your first week will pay attention to Schoolly D. He is the beginning of gangsta rap. I know Jay-Z and Drake will be chilling on the Parkway this weekend, but spend some time with this list and you will get your history lesson done as well as a great playlist for next Thursday's party.
