The Five ... Ringtone tunes favoured by teachers

26th June 2009 at 01:00

1. "Hot for Teacher" by Van Halen - "I just keep it on vibrate," says one teacher.

2. Tubular Bells by Mike Oldfield (until the teacher realised it was also the theme from The Exorcist).

3. Theme tune from 197080s children's series The Flumps.

4. "School's out" by Alice Cooper during the holidays.

5. "Poison" by the same artist during term time.
