Here's Nelson Bragg accompanying Anny Celsi on "To Sir With Love", along with Duncan Maitland and Tony Poole. I went to this gig, which Paul Adsett arranged, at the Grey's pub in Brighton, last summer. That's my head bobbing at the front!

Twisted Sister twisted around the sentiment of the Beach Boys classic (apologies if my calling a song with a Mike Love lead a classic appears troolish, or buying into Mike's BS).



Six Degrees of Separation

This song was featured in the 1986 comedy One Crazy Summer, which also featured Beach Boys classics In My Room, Wouldn't It Be Nice, Do It Again, and Fun Fun Fun (again, sorry for the inclusion of three more songs featuring Mike leads), and stars John Cusack (aka 1980s Brian Wilson).

Since we've reached the politically incorrect stage, here's one from the 70s. It starts gently then goes into Led Zep mode:



Meanwhile, here's one from 1967:

I guess school is on the minds of most of this past week, but not in a good way.  I'm referring to the school mass shootings.  It's just so senseless.

Anyhoo, let's get on with the voting on these 4 school songs...

Gold: Chuck Berry - a wonderful classic song.

Silver:  Jerry Lee Lewis.  Lively rock 'n roll at it's best.

Bronze:  Beach Boys.  An excellent pep rally song!

Tin/Pewter:  Paul Simon.  Good song, but not a great one.

My final answer.

Gold -- "School Days", Chuck Berry. Why? Because Chuck is Chuck, the real father of rock and roll. Interesting to see him do variations of his patented moves and his duck walk wearing a gown. It was nearly a year ago that we lost this original rock and roll legend, and we said our final good-byes to him at his visitation and funeral service here in his life-long home town of St. Louis. Hail, hail, Chuck Berry!

Silver -- "Me & Julio (Down by The School Yard)", Paul Simon. Actually, this was my favorite actual song and video this week, but I had to put Chuck at #1. The music accompanying Simon's video sounded the best, this was an excellent song, and the video itself was excellent. The young girls jumping rope were stellar too -- pretty fancy stuff. It was also nice to see the late New York Yankee legend Mickey Mantle make a cameo appearance in the video. 

Bronze -- "High School Confidential", Jerry Lee Lewis. The guy's got energy, but the sound wasn't too good. 

Tin -- "Be True to Your School", Carl and Brian Wilson-less Beach Boys -- meh. Over the years, I've become less and less of a Mike fan, and this mediocre live version and video are a perfect example why. 


Another "school" classic that nobody has mentioned this week. (I know, Darren, you're not a Steely Dan fan and probably don't even have a Steely Dan t-shirt!)

Okay Egg,  School of Rock still being open:

Gold – Jerry Lee “kills it” here.  Solid rock and roll in 64 via 1958!
Beatles even “got back” with it:

Silver – Paul Simon at the schoolyard in the 80’s.  (Schoolin’ at Yankee Stadium with Artie): 

Bronze – Professor Chuck teaches us.
Taught everyone as well:

Tin – to the BB’s this week. Live with story:

Egg, my late votes, but rather than this being the 11th hour,  it feels like the forth minute.


Jerry Lee.  Looks more like the principal than somebody who should be boppin' at the high school rock.  Not a fan of this guy, so I'm surprised to see him take out my gold position this week.

Chuck.  Terrible sound on this clip, but a really enjoyable performance.

Paul Simon.  First; Bahahahahahaha! Confused by rappers with their pants up, coach Trump, and generally just too much going on.  Proof that Paul Simon did Where's Wally before Wally.

TBB. Mentioned Big Sur; played this.  I wonder if Mike sounded better live in the 60s? Can't see how not.


Larry, nice Tears for Fears clip.  I had no idea they were still producing stuff in 2014.


Sometimes, you just get that very special teacher.



Thanks, Egg.
