It’s back to school time! So here are my Top 5 picks for songs from school movies. Let us know how we did on Twitter @bobeatspod and if you have any faves we missed. #BOBLife
Gangsta’s Paradise – Dangerous Minds
Oh Coolio. He made such a catchy song, that even if you haven’t seen the movie, you know the song. The movie was a gritty drama about teaching at risk youth, and it was really good.
Kiss Me – She’s All That
90s teen movies are so great. And She’s All That is full of teen romance drama cliches, but still a great movie.
Tainted Love – Not Another Teen Movie
I love cover songs. And parodies. And Not Another Teen Movie is a hilarious parody of teen movies, from the 80s to the 2000s. And the version of Tainted Love by Marilyn Manson in the movie is extra great.
Baba O’Riley – Slackers
Slackers is a fave movie of mine. It’s go classic lines and great humour. And the opening with Baba O’Riley playing sets the tone of the whole movie.
You’re The One That I Want – Grease
Can’t talk music from school related movies without including Grease. It’s a classic and has so many great songs, but I chose to go with the closing tune because I wanted to.
There are lots of songs from school related movies, so if you think I missed a good one, hit us up.

Sometimes BOB likes to change things up and decides to let us do a blog post. Well, it’s usually Mandy doing them. Now, I am not always a fan of musicals, especially tv shows that decide to do a “special”musical episode. But there are some movie musicals I actually dig. So here are my Top 5 picks for songs from musicals! Let us know how we did on Twitter @bobeatspod and if you have any faves we missed. #BOBLife
Rent – La Vie Boheme
Now most people would choose Seasons of Love from Rent. But me, I really like La Vie Boheme and think it captures the spirit of the movie. Honestly though, I like almost all the songs in it.
Rocky Horror Picture Show – Time Warp
I love horror movies. And I love fun songs. So of course I love Rocky Horror. And Time Warp is a classic.
Phantom Of The Opera – Theme Song
Although Phantom is a stage musical mainly (so are most of these), there have been a few movie versions. And I always loved it. I had the cassette tapes (old school) and listened to them a lot as a kid. And I still love it.
Annie – Hard Knock Life
As a kid of the 80s, I grew up watching the 80s movie version of Annie. And I still love it.
Newsies – King Of New York
I was obsessed with Newsies as a kid. I wore out my VHS tape on this song. And I still know all the words.
So while these may not be the main stream picks for musical songs, these are 5 I really enjoy.
