Give me songs in which the singers have a crush on their teachers or, more creepily, their students.

I’ll start with “Hot For Teacher,” by Van Halen.

    “Teacher, I Need You” – Elton John

  2. The Police, “Don’t Stand So Close to Me”

  3. tonyola

    “Teacher Teacher” – Rockpile

  4. Well, that’s all that I could think of. And Teacher I Need You was my ace in the hole…

  5. “PTA” by Pulp. POW! Last Man Standing!

  6. Bob Seger “Schoolteacher” from the LP “Seven”

  7. cherguevara

    Rufus Wainwright – “The Art Teacher.”

  8. I suggest you get your posts in early today. RTH will most likely go dark tonight as Mr. Mod dedicates his evening to RTH ingenue and “it” girl Zooey Deschanel’s series premier. Mod, what time do you want to start tailgating for the show?

    Did anyone else watch the documentary “Do It Again” on PBS last week or was it only on in Boston? (See for more information.) Anyway, Zooey was one of the interviewees. Sigh.

  10. misterioso

    “Don’t Stand So Close to Me ’86” (yuck).

  11. High five! Let’s get it started at lunchtime, chick.

  12. I’d heard about this being in the works, but if it aired in Philadelphia I missed it. That sounds cool.

  13. misterioso

    It was altogether better than I expected. The reporter, who is Boston-based but unknown to me, doesn’t quite strike me as a guy I want to hang out with but the documentary was full of interesting moments.

  14. I think it played at one of the Philly film festivals last year, but I couldn’t make it. I’ve heard mixed things about it. Apparently, the reporter basically ambushes various rock stars and celebrities and makes them sing Kinks songs with him. And Paul Weller totally refuses.

  15. Oops, this is supposed to be under the subthread about the Kinks doc, obvs.

  16. misterioso

    Yes, Weller looks like he’s going to punch him in the face. Most others go along with it, including the lovely Zooey.

  17. “To Sir, With Love”

  18. BigSteve

    Good one. Why didn’t I think of that?

  19. hrrundivbakshi

    “Teacher” by George Michael. OOF! LMS!

  20. mockcarr

    Has any punk group covered that old chestnut Teacher’s Pet by Doris Day? Even if not, it counts – LMS!

  21. misterioso

    Dunno if it counts, but there is definitely something going at McCartney’s (tremendous) “Girls School.”

  22. Savage review of the show in the Washington Post today — reviewer gave it a grade “F” and said your heroine was “a decade too old for the part.”

    I look forward to reading your reviews tomorrow, because I am watching Dave Pirner’s ex-Winona Ryder is filling in for Robert Osborne on TCM this week keeping a log of her inappropriate arm movements as she intros the films.

  23. Great song! B-side of With A Little Luck right?

  24. misterioso

    Of “Mull of Kintyre,” actually.

  25. BigSteve

    If you just imagine Sonny Boy Williamson or Muddy Waters as a teacher, Good Morning Little Schoolgirl counts.

  26. Yeah. I was not entirely serious with the ingenue description. I thought she was kind of old to be playing someone that insecure and simple. I also think it’s funny that there’s that other show TV has been advertising to death about the same character except she’s married. I’m gratefully blanking on her name and show.

  27. I thought of that but couldn’t bring myself to make the case.

  28. mockcarr

    Innappropriate Arm Movements would be a great name for an REM cover band.

  29. ladymisskirroyale

    I’m not really sure what the relationship is in !!!’s “Me and Guliani Down At the School Yard.”

  30. “Bitch School” by Spinal Tap.

  31. Parker Posey’s version from her audition in “Waiting for Guffman”


  32. cherguevara

    I got one more…. ABBA, “when I kissed the teacher.” And with that, I’m out.

  33. Nice one, by the way, from our Patron Saint of Rock ‘n Roll Mediocrity! (That’s Seger, not you, rexjupiter.)

  34. The Boomtown Rats “Mary of the 4th Form”
