"Back To School Again" is the opening number from the 1982 musical Grease 2. With music by Louis St. Louis and lyrics by Howard Greenfield, this uptempo track which features nearly the entire cast, runs to well over six and a half minutes, and contains some classy choreography every bit as impressive in its own way as Michael Jackson's classic Thriller video; the song's most noticeable feature is its heavy base line; the theme is evident from the title - first day back after the long American Summer vacation.
The main vocals are performed by The Four Tops, and the horn arrangements are by Andy Huson.

Jon from Scotland, United KingdomExecutives at Paramount wanted the "Back To School" opening musical number cut as they didn't think the song suited the movie as it sounded too "80s". Today, it's considered one of the better songs from the movie.
The TV show Cheers was nearly canceled after its first season, but the theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," was very popular. To satisfy viewer demand, the theme was made into a full song and released as a single.
