Last Man Standing: After School Special Posted by cdm Sep 202011 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. 34 Responses to “Last Man Standing: After School Special” tonyola says: 09/19/2011 at 9:03 pm “Teacher, I Need You” – Elton John 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 09/19/2011 at 9:16 pm The Police, “Don’t Stand So Close to Me” 0 High Five tonyola says: 09/19/2011 at 9:26 pm “Teacher Teacher” – Rockpile 0 High Five cdm says: 09/19/2011 at 10:06 pm Well, that’s all that I could think of. And Teacher I Need You was my ace in the hole… 0 High Five Oats says: 09/19/2011 at 10:18 pm “PTA” by Pulp. POW! Last Man Standing! 0 High Five rexjupiter says: 09/19/2011 at 11:02 pm Bob Seger “Schoolteacher” from the LP “Seven” 0 High Five cherguevarra says: 09/19/2011 at 11:33 pm Rufus Wainwright – “The Art Teacher.” 0 High Five chickenfrank says: 09/20/2011 at 8:39 am 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? 0 High Five misterioso says: 09/20/2011 at 9:23 am Did anyone else watch the documentary “Do It Again” on PBS last week or was it only on in Boston? (See http://doitagainthemovie.com/news/getting-do-it-again-on-pbs for more information.) Anyway, Zooey was one of the interviewees. Sigh. 0 High Five misterioso says: 09/20/2011 at 9:24 am “Don’t Stand So Close to Me ’86” (yuck). 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 09/20/2011 at 9:45 am High five! Let’s get it started at lunchtime, chick. 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 09/20/2011 at 9:49 am I’d heard about this being in the works, but if it aired in Philadelphia I missed it. That sounds cool. 0 High Five misterioso says: 09/20/2011 at 9:51 am 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. 0 High Five Oats says: 09/20/2011 at 10:00 am 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. 0 High Five Oats says: 09/20/2011 at 10:00 am Oops, this is supposed to be under the subthread about the Kinks doc, obvs. 0 High Five misterioso says: 09/20/2011 at 10:10 am Yes, Weller looks like he’s going to punch him in the face. Most others go along with it, including the lovely Zooey. 0 High Five andyr says: 09/20/2011 at 10:16 am “To Sir, With Love” 0 High Five BigSteve says: 09/20/2011 at 10:41 am Good one. Why didn’t I think of that? 0 High Five hrrundivbakshi says: 09/20/2011 at 11:08 am “Teacher” by George Michael. OOF! LMS! 0 High Five mockcarr says: 09/20/2011 at 11:55 am Has any punk group covered that old chestnut Teacher’s Pet by Doris Day? Even if not, it counts – LMS! 0 High Five misterioso says: 09/20/2011 at 12:04 pm Dunno if it counts, but there is definitely something going at McCartney’s (tremendous) “Girls School.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1ZqOgtyvSM 0 High Five funoka says: 09/20/2011 at 1:15 pm 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. 0 High Five funoka says: 09/20/2011 at 1:25 pm Great song! B-side of With A Little Luck right? 0 High Five misterioso says: 09/20/2011 at 2:11 pm Of “Mull of Kintyre,” actually. 0 High Five BigSteve says: 09/20/2011 at 2:18 pm If you just imagine Sonny Boy Williamson or Muddy Waters as a teacher, Good Morning Little Schoolgirl counts. 0 High Five chickenfrank says: 09/20/2011 at 2:36 pm 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. 0 High Five cdm says: 09/20/2011 at 2:42 pm I thought of that but couldn’t bring myself to make the case. 0 High Five mockcarr says: 09/20/2011 at 4:25 pm Innappropriate Arm Movements would be a great name for an REM cover band. 0 High Five ladymisskirroyale says: 09/20/2011 at 7:58 pm I’m not really sure what the relationship is in !!!’s “Me and Guliani Down At the School Yard.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yaqQYetCH8U&feature=related 0 High Five Bobby Bittman says: 09/20/2011 at 8:10 pm “Bitch School” by Spinal Tap. 0 High Five RaoulG says: 09/20/2011 at 8:19 pm Parker Posey’s version from her audition in “Waiting for Guffman” aloha LD 0 High Five cherguevarra says: 09/20/2011 at 9:55 pm I got one more…. ABBA, “when I kissed the teacher.” And with that, I’m out. 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 09/21/2011 at 12:38 am Nice one, by the way, from our Patron Saint of Rock ‘n Roll Mediocrity! (That’s Seger, not you, rexjupiter.) 0 High Five k. says: 09/21/2011 at 7:03 pm The Boomtown Rats “Mary of the 4th Form” 0 High Five Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
