§ I Am Music and I Pick the Songs: To Sir, with Love

{Song #65 « Song #66 » Song #67}

§ ≡ One of an ongoing series of posts in which I pick, in my not-so-humble opinion, the best songs of the second millennium. Feel free to offer constructive dissenting opinions; preferably set to music.

Song #66 is To Sir, with Love sung by Lulu (with The Mindbenders, who also acted in the film) for the film of the same name, which starred Sidney Poitier. The film dealt with social and racial issues in a British inner city school.

The "Sir" of the song was the teacher (Poitier), who ultimately won the love and respect of his students, one of whom was portrayed by Lulu herself.
