Here’s the facts – I’m old and I miss school every year when the back to school sales start and I see the sad faces on those first days. I’m like, really…be happy because after you leave school you’ll be hit with a brick known as reality. So as I sit and wish for homework, here’s some songs for those lucky enough to still be enrolled.
10. “Summer Lovin” Grease
Hopefully you had a great summer to reminisce about while you’re bored as fuck in homeroom.
9. Saved by the Bell Theme
It’s really an inspirational tale about getting to school in the morning.
8. “Mr. Jones” Counting Crows
It has absolutely no relevance but it makes me happy, so I’m sure it’ll get anyone through the first day, week, month, year of school.
7. “Attention” The Academy Is…
Because…you have to pay attention, duh…
6. “…Baby One More Time” Britney Spears
The video captures that boredom and daydream thing all students share.
5. “Growing Up” Fall Out Boy
Each year you’re growing up a little bit, so yup…
4. “Summer” Fireworks
The thoughts of summer never really leave your side.
3. “Weightless” All Time Low
They might be for tweens and teens but come on guys, these lyrics are pretty great.
2. “Express Yourself” Madonna
I think the best lesson to any kid is to be yourself on that first day.
1. “Graduation” Head Automatica
Don’t forget the end goal – graduate and get the fuck out of that place.
