Entrance Videos (Compilation)

I was quite flattered recently when so many readers stepped up and voted to help me choose my Official Blue Cereal Entrance Video.
Blue Cereal Education - @bluecerealeduc - "Because I'm Awesome" (The Dollyrots)
The challenge was then issued to fellow edu-bloggers to choose theirs, or risk having it chosen for them. The results are far from complete, but so far we have some amazing choices.
Jennifer Williams - @JennWillTeach - "Imperial Death March (from Star Wars)" (John Williams) - This is so perfect.
L.Z. Marie - @LZMarieAuthor - "Austin Powers, International Man of Mystery Opening Theme" - All I can say is, 'Yep'.
Josh Flores - @MrJoshFlores - "Sabotage" (The Beastie Boys) - This one amuses me to no end, and yet - SO appropriate.
Drew Price - @drewprice11 - "The Distance" (Cake) - and I do love me some Cake...
Tyler Horner - @tylerhorner - "All Star" (Smash Mouth) - We've got a blind date with destiny... and it looks like she's ordered the lobster.
Kimberly Blodgett - @KimberBlodgett - "Brave" (Sara Bareilles) - This song and especially this video make me ridiculously happy.
Leave it to Ilana Horn - @tchmathculture - to color outside the lines! "Piano Stairs"
Erin Barnes - @elynnlll - "The Greatest Man That Ever Lived" (Weezer). Love this one ;-)
The World-Renowned EduShyster - @edushyster - "Peter Gunn Mambo" (Jack Costanzo)
Rob Miller - @edgeblogger - "Liberty" (Jordan Page) - note the Ron Paul sweatshirt among the rotating clothing options! That sold me.
Adrienne Fore - @mrsaj4 - has arguably cheated. She has designated both a 'theme song' for the year AND an 'entrance video'. Because I admire those who color outside the lines, I'm letting her slide on this one - but don't any of the rest of you get any ideas... it's a one-time thing! First, her theme song for the year - "Giants" (Matt Nathanson).
As opposed to her entrance music - actually a better choice for that sort of thing. "Are You Gonna Go My Way" (Lenny Kravitz)
Jennifer Lea - @jennifer_lea_e - "She Blinded Me With Science" (Thomas Dolby) - Perfect!
The Legendary Mrs. Waters - @watersenglish - "Girl On Fire" (Alicia Keys) - Waters never ceases to surprise me.
The Vigilant Jed Lovejoy - @jethroblank - with, I must confess, one of my favorites so far - "Movin' Right Along" (Alkaline Trio)
Barbie Jackson - @BJacksonsClass - "Unfinished Song" (Celine Dion) - I honestly didn't think it was possible for me to like a Celine Dion song, but for this... I mean, it totally works, yes?
Courtney's Voice - @courtneys_voice - "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, Pt. I" (Flaming Lips) - Because she knows that it's demanding to defeat those evil machines.
The unpredictable Scott Haselwood - @TeachFromHere - created his own mash-up entrance video. Go ahead, it's OK to be just a LITTLE jealous...
One of my favorite things about Twitter is the pathway it paves to essential cohorts like Sherri Spelic - @edifiedlistener - who is ever finding new places to go, then offering the rest of us a ride. "I'll Take You There" (The Staple Singers)
AP Legend David Burton - master of the bow tie and purveyor of class and style to the masses - @psalmofdavid - "Sharp Dressed Man" (ZZ Top)
This one I assigned based on my infinite wisdom and insight for this kind of thing. Starr Sackstein - @mssackstein - "The Star Song" (Bowling For Soup)
Doug Robertson - @TheWeirdTeacher - "On My Way To The Cage" (Rollins Band) - Many of you won't believe me, but I THOUGHT it might be something like this.
This one, on the other hand, I did NOT see coming. But I like it. The wellspring of #oklaed pith, Rick Cobb - @okeducation - "All Good" (Zeroleen)
Finally, don't forget the BCE #11FF Steaming Hot Nectar Receptacle / Long-Sleeve Elitist T Entrance Video, starring the #11FF:
