What Are Teachers Listening To?
Rachael Eisenberg

By: Rachael Eisenberg

Last month in our last PawPrints publication, learned what the students of CHS were listening to day in and day out. Now it is time to find out about the teachers!

In this day and age we have music playing constantly. From driving around, at the gym, at work, or even during school, music is usually present. Chances are, while at school, most students will have their ear buds in listening to their favorite songs. But what about the teachers? In the halls, more often than not you will hear Mr. Hagewood along with Mr. Price playing their songs at the highest set volume.

Before going around to seek out what our favorite teachers were listening to, I had originally assumed their responses would be old 70's songs, that replay on the "oldies" station of their Pandora stations. Or I was expecting their sentimental wedding songs that they listen to in order to remember the "good old days." I was wrong.

I went around in the past week to find out just exactly what some of our teachers at Clarkston High School's favorite songs were, and why. Having no clue what to expect, I went in with an open mind and a curious attitude. Ranging from classics such as Happy Birthday and Tomorrow to catchy pop love songs such as What Lovers Do and Making Love Out Of Nothing At All.

Mr. Cook: "Tomorrow" - Annie

"I like this song because it means the sun will never come out, because tomorrow never comes."

Mr. Klaver: "Happy Birthday" - Traditional Happy Birthday

"Everytime this song is sung to me, it's my birthday!"

Mr. Pierce: "Whatever It Takes" - Imagine Dragons

"My two year old will always turn off all the lights, and take a flashlight to shine it around and dance to it. Her dance moves are just great."

Mr. Warner: "Whatever song Maroon 5 has out" ("What Lovers Do" - Maroon 5)

"Whenever they put out a song, he always has a catchy line and plus, he's hot. What's his name? Oh, Adam Levine, that's who. All he has to sing is "Do da doo doo" with his catchy high voice and it's great."

Ms. Spak: "Ain't No Man" - Avett Brothers

"Because it's all about not letting someone have control over you, and to be strong. You should check them out, they're awesome."

Mr. Davis: "A Day In The Life" - The Beatles

"I like it because it really tells a story, and plus they're my favorite group."

Mr. McCall: "Lovely Day" - Bill Withers

"It's a very peaceful and relaxing song. Just like the title says, it will be a lovely day."

Mr. Hagewood: "Making Love Out Of Nothing At All" - Air Supply

"The best song needs to come from the best band. That clearly is Air Supply. What Air Supply song is awesome? That's a trick question. They ALL are, however, if somebody put a Calculus book to my head and threatened me that they would burn it if I didn't answer, I would have to say "Making Love Out Of Nothing At All." I mean, it has it all. Power ballad? Check. Love ballad? Check. It plays with your emotions. Starts out depressing, but it takes a dramatic, inspirational turn. And, it builds, and it builds, and it builds...AND IT BUILDS! BEST SONG EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Mrs. Lambert: "Thunder" - Imagine Dragons

"At the current moment I'm enjoying Thunder by Imagine Dragons because my kids (5 and 2 years old) get pumped up and dance around when they hear it."
