I decided to pick tracks that fit the theme in title, and secondly in lyrical content or overall mood of the track. It forays into a number of genres (even shitty screamo!) for the sake of the student.

Track 9 from Greatest Hits
Length: 00:04:03
Year: 2002
Track Description:
Such a great way to open any mix. Exhibits the finest attributes of extra-curricular relations: absolute confusion.
"You! You got what I neeee-eed!" and "She had 9/10 pants and a very big bra," are the highlights.

Track 4 from So...How's Your Girl?
Length: 00:01:59
Year: 1999
Track Description:
A nice segue from the previous as Biz cameos on this album, but seriously. This track is... great. The repeated "Oh my god, they're gorgeous!" is just fabulous. If you aspire to attend the Handsome Boy Modeling School, this clipped track is a must. Don't forget the orange mocha frappucinos!

Track 16 from Since I Left You...
Length: 00:01:36
Year: 2001
Track Description:
A short little journey that at the beginning reminds me of walking to the first day of grade school with a giant, brightly colored backpack on my back, a headband in my hair, and cautiously approaching the school looming before me.

4 Blackalicious : Alphabet Aerobics
If you can do this at school, you succeed at the game of life. An A-Z lyrical bombast.

Track Description:
I HATED MATH CLASS. If this music was playing while I was trying to balance equations, it might have helped just a little. Perfect music for calculation, in my opinion.

Ah, the drudgery of essay writing. Ususally on a topic you have no interest in whatsoever, such as a beaver fur trade of eastern Canada or the exports of Delaware, some teachers seemed to aspire to makie you hate the art of writing. "Would you care to know?"

Track 1 from Pink (Import)
Length: 00:07:33
Year: 2005
Track Description:
Adolescents in high school are not particularly adept at enunciating what they're thinking or feeling. Hence why they use music and shitty song lyrics to try and convey that. Boris does one better by being lyrically unintelligible/in Japanese, but still getting the point across.
I love love this album and this song, which is definitely more mellow than the rest of the thrashing rhapsody.

Track 10 from Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses
Length: 00:05:04
Year: 2002
Track Description:
I don't particularly like this band, or its lyrics, or its fan base, but it's big with the high school set and for just cause. They take very familiar situations and over-emote in an epic fashion. I mean, shit, look at the album title. I think the song fits however, and would listen to it in the context of this mix.

Track 1 from What It Is To Burn
Length: 00:04:39
Year: 2002
Track Description:
Again with the screamo. Not only am I including this for the same reasons as the Atreyu song (adolescent appeal), but also because the title resonates with a back to school theme AND it reminds me of one of my more significant relationships in college and the frivolity of it all. Honestly, it's kind of a guilty pleasure.

I originally chose this because the title reminded me of a blackboard, but upon listening to its minute and a half, it sounds almost like excerpts from the Donnie Darko soundtrack. Well, if it had been a little more upbeat.

Your youth when you're old
Or a friend when you're lonely
Or a love that's grown cold

The wealthiest person
Is a pauper at times
Compared to the man
With a satisfied mind"
