Calendars may differ from school district to school district, but on the day after Labor Day — whether it's your second week or your official start — kids everywhere are going back to school.

The bright-yellow school buses are rolling, the crossing guards are standing at corners and parents are posting first-day photos aplenty on Facebook.

The first day of school represents different things for different people: a sense of possibility, a return to routine, a wave of nostalgia. Whatever the first day of school means to you, there's likely music that accompanies it. Let's build a playlist of those songs.
