One response to “Here Comes the Summer

    This selection may not resonate with readers more familiar with the prior selections but an absolute must listen at this time of year is Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out For Summer”. And this version features the Muppets–even bettter!

    My previous principal, upon her retirement last year, played this song over the PA system on her last day. (Even though I liked the song and the spirit of the gesture it was annoying. Man I wish we could ban the use of the PA barring major catastrophe.)
