It’s the time of year where parents rejoice and children across the country begin counting the days until summer. Somehow, the back-to-school season is upon us again, and summer 2012 is all but over. Here are BBP’s Top-10 Back ToSchool songs to help you get back to your regular September routine.
Hot For Teacher, Van Halen – ‘What do you think the teacher’s gonna look like this year?’ Diamond David Lee Roth asks on the band’s 1984 hit. I was ten years old when I first heard this track and saw the video. The first day of school was never the same again.
Check out the rest of our list after the jump!
It’s a sad day, friends. Beastie Boy Adam Yauch has died after a 3-year battle with cancer. He was only 47.
Yauch was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in his salivary gland in July 2009, which resulted in the band’s decision to delay tours and the release of Beastie Boys’ most recent album Hot Sauce Committee Part II.
The Beastie Boys are one of the most influential music groups of all time. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month – though he wasn’t able to attend the event, I’m glad MCA lived long enough to know the band had received that honour.
What is on your Beasties playlist this afternoon? Personally, I’m listing to Ill Communication right now….
It’s a regular old work day for us here in Canada but our neighbours to the south have been up for hours, camping out, lining up and salivating over deals, deals, deals! I am of course, talking about Black Friday – the day after Yankee Thanksgiving which for many, kicks off the holiday shopping season.
This year I have decided to try and buy locally as much as possible, so when I heard that there was a “Black Friday” version of Record Store Day happening, I did a (tasteful) happy dance at my desk at work. As an individual with many music-loving family members and friends to buy for, I’m pretty excited about some of the great releases being put out especially for today. (Note to brothers and husband: stop reading right now).
