Back to School Songs

Listen Up! It's a Back-to-School Playlist

A song can take one back to a place and time with just a few notes. For instance, take "Living on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi. Just three "umpa umpa umpas" will have toes tapping and heads bopping as the listener recalls their life as an acid jean wearing teenybopper. Give tots a head start on their musical memories by playing these stellar back-to-school songs on their way to the learning annex. Here are some of our favorites. Add yours to the list in the comments so we can all enjoy more!
