In The Big Rock Candy Mountain by Burl Ives Link needs to be corrected.
Pour Some Sugar on Me by Def Leppard (From 1988) This actually reminds me of a bullying incident, I experienced, which the teacher had totally ignored.
I was always amazed that their drummer managed to be so fantastic, despite having only one arm. I suspect we could all learn a lot from that about resilience.
This last one really stands out for me as I have the album.
I will add to this post as I remember more songs on the topic Sources all to follow.
A particularly creepy ad from the 1980s on the topic of sweet things:
Seeing as I have mentioned The Big Rock Candy Mountain already:
Another piece of music about mountains.
Hall of The Mountain King When I listen to Peer Gynt I am transported back to my room and doing my homework.

I would listen to it all the time. I loved that it told a story. I am also into ballet. I took the children to see Russian National Ballet in 2005 when they visited our town.
Mum and Dad had taken us to see The Nutcracker as children
Bolshoi Ballet/ Coppelia Mazurka
The children had been nothing like as enthusiastic as I was but I wanted them to see the ballet. I still have the program somewhere. I can also find out the date with a little research.
I do have good research skills. My friend had been terribly upset as she had witnessed a motorcycle accident and been there with him as he died. I felt it was important for his mother to know he had not been alone, so I had helped her track down his mother, to tell her how he had spent his last moments . She was comforted to know he had not been alone, as it was described to me. Having lost a dear friend in a car accident, I think about these things. All I could think about was how I would feel if it were my child.
