"Schooldays were the happiest days
Now they seem so far away
I remember and I'll always treasure
Schooldays were the happiest days of your life
But we never appreciate the good times we have
Until it's too late
Now I wish I hadn't strayed
And I'd go back if I could only find a way
Schooldays."

The Kinks "Schooldays"

 

Up in the mornin' and out to school
The teacher is teachin' the Golden Rule
American history and practical math
You studyin' hard and hopin' to pass
Workin' your fingers right down to the bone
And the guy behind you won't leave you alone
Ring, ring goes the bell
The cook in the lunch room's ready to sell
You're lucky if you can find a seat
You're fortunate if you have time to eat
Back in the classroom, open your books
Keep up the teacher don't know how mean she looks

Chuck Berry "School Days"

 

Whichever way you look at it, school is back in session! And so is The Wide World of Classical Music. I've got some music for studying; hours dedicated to the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra upcoming season and The Manitoba Chamber Orchestra; tone poems, AND an hour of cool video game music, curated by my son Sam.

 

Join me on The Wide World of Classical Music, Saturday noon - 6:00pm, brought to you by Bonaventure Travel.
