Reading Time: 1 minute

Mr. Rubinstein

“Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song)”

Billy Joel


“My favorite is probably Movin’ Out by Billy Joel because it was #1 when I was about nine years old, and nine was a very impressionable age. It was really big, and I’ve loved Billy Joel since. I tried seeing him in concert recently, but it was sold out.” —Gary Rubenstein, math teacher

Mr. Miller

“Livin’ on a Prayer”

Bon Jovi


“It’s difficult to choose one, but I appreciate the upbeat sound that Bon Jovi creates with this song.” —Vincent Miller, Physical Education teacher

Mr. Hanna

“On Green Dolphin Street”

Miles Davis


“It's sophisticated without being complicated.” —David Hanna, history teacher

Mr. Grossman

“Waterloo Sunset”

The Kinks


“It is the most wistful song ever recorded.” —Eric Grossman, English teacher

The Beatles


“I like it because it is about love.” —Dr. Eugene Majewski, physics teacher

Ms. Manning
