Whilst I am incapacitated due to a ruptured tendon I began to reminisce about being a teenager and how I used to create a Top 10 for almost anything. This made me think of the end of term and with just over a week to go and being unable to sleep, I would like to present my end of School Year Top 10 Anthems..
10) Grange Hill Theme tune
Purely for nostalgia!
9) Baggy Trousers – Madness
It really is about School.
8) Holiday – Madonna
7) Don’t Stop Believing – Journey
For all students waiting for their results
6) Hi Ho Silver Lining by Jeff Beck
Brings back many happy memories.
5) Another Brick in the Wall – Pink Floyd
This song was used as our anthem during the 6th Form.
4) Summer of 69 – Bryan Adams
My son came back from his Prom singing this song.
3) Schools Out for Summer – Alice Cooper
Well it had to be in there somewhere.
2) What a Wonderful World – Louis Armstrong
This is to remind us to take a break and realise the beauty and wonder that exists in the World. It is so easy to forget amidst all the paperwork and never ending lists.
1) Mr Blue Sky – ELO
Well, for me, this is the ultimate dream. A blue sky with the sun shining brightly!
I’m sure that many of you will have better and perhaps more unique choices but ultimately this is simply a bit of fun with no measurable impact.
Gwyliau Haf hapus i bawb! A happy Summer Holiday to everyone.
