End of the Summer Term
On Wednesday, it was the last day of the academic year at my children's school. And, as everybody knows, there's only one song that fits...
Except it turned out that there were several. I think they call it a mash-up. And for some reason, Harry Potter turned up as well. As for the pretty boy in the front - I'm not entirely sure who he is, but he might be an actor.
Alice Cooper, "School's Out"
Pink Floyd, "The Wall"
Cliff Richard, "We're all Going on a Summer Holiday"
Nick Lowe, "I Love the Sound of Breaking Glass"
The Divine Comedy, "The Pop Singer's Fear of the Pollen Count"
Janis Joplin or Billie Holiday, "Summertime"
Mungo Jerry, "In the Summertime"
Bad Manners turned up at the end but didn't actually give me a song. Eddie Cochran was hanging around in the sky with his Summertime Blues, but didn't get a speaking part. Madonna went on "Holiday" to "La Isla Bonita" so she isn't there at all.
