Back to School Music

Can it possibly be this time again? Didn’t school just get out?

Years ago Minute Maid had a commercial encouraging everyone to enjoy summer one sip at a time. As I get older, it seems to be more pertinent to head their advice. However, we have sadly left summer fun for a return to the books. Everyone hang in there! (The holiday breaks will be here quicker than you think)

Here are 5 songs to get you back in the mood and yes, some are of the sarcastic nature. What songs do you think of when headed back to school?

Music That Gets You Hooked in 10 Seconds

This post is a little unfair since I can think of a gazillion songs that get me hooked to the beat within the first couple of notes. Why I choose the songs below—there really is no rhyme or reason to it except you will notice that I am focusing on a particular time frame. This one is for you Mom (and I would also like to point out that the music, clothing and hair is no better in that decade than other decades—we all make mistakes). LOL!

Here Is To The Great Outdoors

It has been amazing here in Portland this week! Lots of sunshine and warmth to go around!! It really just makes you want to be outside soaking in all the vitamin C that you can. It also makes me want to wear my cooler summer outfits, BBQ, sip lemonade while the sun goes down and listen to great music. Here are a few suggestions for music to get you in an outdoor frame of mind.

  1. Raging Fire by Phillip Phillips
  2. Lookin’ Out My Back Door by Creedence Clearwater Revival
  3. Sky Full of Stars by Coldplay
  4. I Get Around by The Beach Boys
  5. Here Comes the Sun by The Beatles
