Dark Meat 167: Gaudeamus Igitur

It’s early September, the time when school traditionally starts up again after summer vacation. If that alone isn’t depressing enough for you, maybe this show will help. Songs about school, or subjects taught in school, or tangentially related songs. Come to think of it, this is exactly the same amount of attention I used to put into book reports.

(The title, incidentally: worth googling. You’ll learn something.)

* Sparks – Tarzan and Jane
* Randy Newman – The World Isn’t Fair
* Richard Cheese – Hot For Teacher
* Sugarplastic – Transworld Modal Operator
* Laurie Anderson – Let X=X
* Oingo Boingo – No Spill Blood
* Dramarama – 400 Blows
