“A Thousand Miles”: Vanessa Carlton
Back to school, “faces past … and I miss you”. This song perfectly sums up that back-to-school excitement of seeing all your old friends, but missing your summer days.
“Maggie May”: Rod Stewart
A terrific song about a young guy who’s skipping the first few months of school to be in a relationship with an older woman. Worth a listen.
“Colt 45”: Afroman
A good jam to help you get back into the swing of things.
“Brown Eyed Girl”: Van Morrison
Song speaks of summer but sounds like autumn.
“These Days”: Nico
This song is palpably reminiscent of a crisp fall day.
“Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard”: Paul Simon
School is in the title. A fun tune about breaking the rules.
“My Girl”: The Foundations
A classic, deserving of your ears every once in a while.
“Honky Cat”: Elton John
A song about getting back to what you know, and stepping back into your usual routine.
“Still Got It”: Tyga ft. Drake
A passionate track. Don’t be afraid to take a day off; do what Tyga would do.
“Tangled Up in Blue”: Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan’s finest work. The lyrics speak of faded passion, and wistful longing for better days— something that we can all relate to when school is starting back up again.
