A love song for a librarian

Ok, so this post is not about movies, but I thought it would be fun to explore a few love songs for librarians for Valentine’s Day. Enjoy!

“Heaven Sent” by INXS (1992)

Tuesday she works / In the library uptown / Some useful knowledge / Can always be found / Don’t burn the library / Till you’ve read all the books / Sometimes in life / You get a second look

“Karen” by The Go-Betweens (1978)

This very special girl / And she works in a library, yeah / Standing there behind the counter / Willing to help / With all the problems that I encounter

“Lisa Librarian” by Velocity Girl (1993)

I want to visit you at work / it is all quiet / it is so quiet at work

“Love in the Library” by Jimmy Buffet (1994)

Love in the library / Quiet and cool / Love in the library / There are no rules

“At the Library” by Green Day (1991)

What is it that drives me mad / Girls like you that I never had / What is it about you that I adore?

“The Librarian” by Hefner (1998)

He started to woo her in the most peculiar way / The librarian’s dress was a fawner shade of grey / The books he was to borrow he would surely never read / They had an intellectual calibre he hoped that she would see

“Librarian” by My Morning Jacket (2008)

Simple little bookworm buried underneath / Is the sexiest librarian / Take off those glasses and let down your hair for me

And, of course…

“Marian the Librarian” from The Music Man (1962 and 2003 films)

For the civilized world accepts as unforgivable sin / Any talking out loud with any librarian / Such as Marian…..Madam Librarian
