Bat Out Of ######-Meat Loaf
EDIT:Okay, I did not see that one being moderated!! Fair enough.
For the annual school 'Activities Week' one member of staff always combined two activities, ice-skating and swimming - one in the morning, then the other in the afternoon. It was very popular and at least to start with it appeared to be chosen by all the more challenging pupils, shall we say. I likened it to a St.Trinian's outing!
For some time now and possibly back then, that has been an unfair assessment, to be honest, but one thing he did do was invite children to bring to the front of the coach cassette-tapes of music to put on during the journey to the venues. So, next to the driver there would accumulate this stack of tapes.
I went along on several occasions, to help out with staff supervision and also because although I don't ice-skate (heaven forbid), I do like a swim.
One of his own favourites on the journey, which he always played, was indeed 'Bat Out of ****', which to me seemed most appropriate!
