Michael Duane Adkins – “Teachers Pet” mp3
Far from the unrestrained lust of Van Halen’s “Hot For Teacher” or the Lolita tension of The Police’s “Don’t Stand So Close To Me,” we find one Michael Duane Adkins, delivering a sincere and comical ode of love to his professor. In classic country singer-songwriter style, he puts a punch line in every verse, and there isn’t a wasted line in the song. Simple accompaniment by a lazy acoustic guitar strum and ambling bass line is perf for this smart serenade, from the perfectly titled “I’m So Country I Could Die” album. I give it an A.
