Monday Earworm: School of Rock Kids (Sing The Mamas and the Papas)

One of my colleagues whose classroom is across the hall from mine plays music at the start of his classes just about every day. Really loudly. And it’s often good music. I started the day with Beck’s “Qué Onda Guero” in my head, but then this song started up across the hall, and now this one has been stuck in my head all day.

But rather than show a clip of the original, I’m using this cover by a School of Rock Camp group, because it is actually, in my opinion, better. (And yes, I know people will argue with me about that, and I even know who will be the first to register a complaint in the comments. And who will want to, but then refrain from doing so just because I’ve pre-emptively called it out.)

Enjoy.  😉

  1. I have a playlist just for covers and my first thought after the first few seconds was “I might want to add this!” This may seem like a random comparison, but the lead singer has a very Jennifer-Lawrence-in-the-Hunger-Games voice, which I mean in a very good way. Or like Adele. I do like the original version better, but this is a very respectable retelling. 😃👍

    1. P.S. if you want to hear a wonderfully unusual cover, I HIGHLY recommend YouTubing the Ukulele Band of Great Britain’s version of “Lovecats.” It’s not only a super fun cover, but also a really cute quarantine-style music video.
