    Default Need a new song that signals "clean up time"

    Yo....this is kinda silly but cool at the same time. I'm a teacher and I've been using Ted Nugent's "stranglehold" blasted at like 11 to signal my students that its time to clean up, and its frickin' amazing because once the music starts everyone starts cleaning up, and the class monitors pick up scissors etc...

    Problem is I had a contest to see who could figure out the Artist and name of the song......and low and behold someone actually figured it out after months and months of bad guesses. So anyhow....I'm looking for a cool new song that has kinda a bad ass guitar intro. similar to Stranglehold with a somewhat obscure title that the students won't easily figure out by typing out the chorus on Youtube.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.....Thanks!

    My first thought was "Cleanup Time" by John Lennon but as I continued reading your post, I don't think that would fit your criteria!

    How about "The Movie" by Aerosmith (okay, starts with bass, not guitar) - let 'em find the chorus for that on Google!

    How about "I'm Goin' Home" by Ten Years After, "School's Out" by Alice Cooper or minus a guitar intro-"Bang The Drum" by Todd Rundgren (I don't want to work...)?

    Or you could always use "Hocus Pocus" by Focus-that's obscure.

    My mother used to do this one called "You're a Fucking Filthy Slob". It's kind of a free-verse poetry thing with lots of room for improvisation. If you need a recording of it, I can reproduce it from memory.







    Don't read this.

    Just so they can't Google the lyrics and cheat, why not use an instrumental track, like "Crushing Day" by Joe Satriani? Good beat might get the adrenaline flowing for some good ol' fashioned CLEANING!
    Nothing to see here.

    Agreed..

    Donut City, or any instrumental that they might recognize the name of the artist, but not the song.

    Funny...I was also thinking of that. There's another song on that Bill and Ted's soundtrack, Two Heads Are Better Than One by Power Tool.

    My mother had a similar free verse thing. Same title, though she didn't use the profanity. Most of come from some book...

    My vote would be "Matthew & Son" by Cat Stevens. It's a piano intro, not guitar but it starts: "Up at eight, you can't be late..." The beginning has a nice staccato beat which flows to a melody that gives the impression of people rushing.

    Default nice pick broken

    however the last verse will need to be reworked - someone's gonna have to call Gary and Nuno.

    Jack and Suzi
    Sittin' in a tree
    K-I-S-S-I-N-G
    First comes love
    Then comes marriage
    Then comes Adam
    In a baby carriage



    The first line clearly implies that only straight relationships are accepted by society and this is clearly gay bashing. May I recommend a new line of "any 2of Bob, Jack, Suzi and Theresa sitting in a tree"

    And don't get me started on the "kill the guy with the ball" line - clearly any fights that start in the school will be blamed on this song.

    I'd go with an instrumental just to be safe.

    I GOT IT!



    though I prefer the montage using this song in Revenge of the Nerds much more than this one!
