Songs about libraries and librarians abound – some of them are great, and some are just terrible. Some of them might have been good when they first came out, but haven’t aged well!
In 2006 a band from New Zealand called Haunted Love released a song ‘Librarian’. This was so popular at the time that my large university library had it showing on a loop on the video screens!
80’s band Tears for Fears set their video clip for ‘Head Over Heels’ in a library, although the song doesn’t reference libraries specifically. The random arrival of a keyboard on the reference desk a bit strange, but those kind of things happened in 80’s pop music.
American rock band My Morning Jacket have a song called ‘Librarian’, about falling for a librarian (who is, of course, a woman with glasses).
Can anyone point to songs that feature librarians that are not women with glasses?
