    In Need of a Perfect song...

    Hey all,
    Need some creative assistance. I'm putting together a video of some of our kids and classes and stuff to take with us when we go home. I'm trying to make it a bit interresting, rather than boring old home movie type stuff. So I have this montage I am working on, where I have sped everything up so all the clips make it look like life at my school is nutty (which, it is) The title of the montage is A Day In The Life, and it shows little blips of any ordinary day. (lots of running, jumping, hyper kid movement) Trouble is I need a great song. I want an upbeat, fairly fast rock tune, preferably classic rock that wouldn't be totally unsuitable. Something a lot of people know and like yet isn't horrendously over played. I have tried a bunch and nothing has really seemed right. Any suggestions would really help. The lyrics should be about fast paced life, or racing, or craziness or school, but it needs to be fast. Think get-up-and-boogie paced. And shouldn't talk too much about sex or something that's reeeeally NOT kid related...I think you get my drift.

    Thanks

    hmm, the only one i can think of is Stratovarius - Speed of light

    I remember the lyrics are something like..

    I'm away, lost in my thoughts,
    everyday, my life goes by..
    at the speed of light.

    Great song, great solo, but i know it aint that type of boogie rock you were searching for and i doubt that a lot of people knows it. if i find something else i'll tell you, something that rock a little more and that a lot people heard it but i just don't know if the lyrics would fit, but you can try out Johnny B. Goode by chuck berry ?

    Kick Start My Heart, the Crue

    When I get high
    I get high on speed
    Top fuel funny car's
    A drug for me
    My heart, my heart
    Kickstart my heart
    Always got the cops
    Coming after me
    Custom built bike doing 103
    My heart, my heart
    Kickstart my heart

    Ooh, are you ready girls?
    Ooh, are you ready now?
    Ooh, yeah
    Kickstart my heart
    Give it a start
    Ooh, yeah, baby
    Ooh, yeah
    Kickstart my heart
    Hope it never stops
    Ooh, yeah, baby

    Skydive naked
    From an aeroplane
    Or a lady with a
    Body from outerspace
    My heart, my heart
    Kickstart my heart
    Say I got trouble
    Trouble in my eyes
    I'm just looking for Another good time
    My heart, my heart
    Kickstart my heart

    Ooh, are you ready girls?
    Ooh, are you ready now?
    Ooh, yeah
    Kickstart my heart
    Give it a start
    Ooh, yeah, baby
    Ooh, yeah
    Kickstart my heart
    Hope it never stops
    Ooh, yeah, baby

    When we started this band
    All we needed, needed was a laugh
    Years gone by...I'd say we've kicked some ***
    When I'm enraged
    Or hittin' the stage
    Adrenaline rushing
    Through my veins
    And I'd say we're still kickin' ***

    Ooo, ahh, kickstart my heart
    Hope it never stops
    And to think, we did all of this...
    To rock

    This song isnt upbeat..I know it...but I still think you should go with "A Day In The Life" By the beatles...I mean picture everything going really fast and then what your hearing mellow....but also telling a really cool story at the same time....Just my thought's


    But If ya have to go up-beat go with Gun's & Rose's - Welcome to the Jungle

    What about "ballroom blitz" (the version done by Tia Carerra for the Wayne's World movie)

    Its a fairly hectic pace.

    I think it would be cool to like fade from Gun's & Rose's into a day in the life by the beatles...if their is a part in Welcome to the Jungle that slows down...then fade into A Day In the life....THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!!!

    Do that!!!! do it...go..run along get to work

    If I were one of your students then it would have to be "Hot for Teacher" by Van Halen

    hehe.. yes that would have to be the song the boys choose.

    I'm still trying to think of the perfect song but still no luck although I think "Kickstart My Heart" is better than the rest suggested here. Since you like Led Zepplen I wish I could think of one of their songs but they are all about women. Cadalliac does use "Rock and Roll" for their commercials.
