Songs made creepier... By the singer’s teaching career
Some people are just not quite what you want in a teacher - but that doesn't mean they can't rock.
Gene Simmons (KISS): Christine Sixteen
Gene Simmons’ tongue is noted for proving once and for all that it is a dreadful stereotype to say lizard people only go in for politics, every now and then one feels the need to rock, and rock well.
Of course he wasn’t always a rocker, spending six months as a school teacher who assigned kids Spiderman comics because he figured they wouldn't read Shakespeare.
Sheryl Crow: Lucky kid
Just imagine the following on your failing report card:
I want to make you scream for mercy
I want to break the silence within
And take you to your knees
Just like you did me
And crawl around in your skin
Now that is one scary elementary school music teacher.
Sting (The Police): Don’t Stand So Close to Me
Sting is basically the clean cut singer whose best songs are about prostitutes (Roxanne), stalkers (Every breath you take) and this one, which is about a teacher who sleeps with one of his students.
Sting was of course, an English teacher.
