80’s Songs for the Classroom

“What 80's tunes would you add to my list? How do they inspire you as an educator?”

I was intrigued by this question and wanted to give it a try. I’m not a big fan of songs from the 1980s so that made this even more challenging.

These are not in any order other than how they came up in my thoughts:

It’sStill Rock and Roll to Me by Billy Joel - Song about change and how hard it is.

Magicby Olivia Newton John - Song about believing and having faith

Celebrationby Kool and the Gang - Song about celebrating triumphs

MorningTrain by Sheena Easton - - Song about working

Eye of the Tiger by Survivor - Song about being brave and courageous

Hard to Say I’m Sorry by Chicago - Song about how hard it is to apologize which is hard for our students.

We Are the World by USA for Africa - Song about teamwork

That’s What Friends are For by Dionne Warwick – friends are important to our students

True Colors by Cyndi Lauper – song about being yourself

What 80’s songs would be on your list?
