Your Turn

It has been a few years since I did this, so thought it would be fun to do it again. Senior class song or the song for your prom.

"Dream On" by Aerosmith was our class song. I personally wanted "Don't Forget Me (When I'm Gone)" by Glass Tiger. Hey, it was the late 80s.

"The Way We Were" by Barbara Striesand. I would have chosen "Teenaged Lobotomy" or "I Wanna Be Sedated" by the Ramones but nobody asked me.

The world Greatest by R Kelly

Tru Leigh said...

I think our Senior Class song was "We May Never Pass This Way Again" By Seals & Crofts.

Yes I'm old.

14 people in my graduating class. Private school. I sang Traffic's John Barleycorn and Neil Young's Old Man at our commencement. Yep. It was the 70s. We kicked serious butt as a band though!

SophiaB said...

Or maybe it was Father & Son by Cat Stevens? Whoops. Memory slip.

Jenny Ferrall said...

"We've Got Tonight" for Prom. Fitting for a Catholic school dance, no? Class song was an original written by a class mate.

Mango said...

More importantly, Did anyone get a class ring?

Karen said...

+10000, Mango!

Ms Cool said...

No idea.

OneEyeCharlie said...

Went to a parochial school. No prom. We had the Junior-Senior banquet. No dancing allowed. That's how girls get pregnant; dontcha know.

At the time, Footloose seemed semi-autobiographical.

Fijigrrl said...

Imagine - John Lennon -- class second choice was "Hold onto the Night" by Richard Marx. Oh the 80s were fun :)

Honey Badger said...

Could It Be Magic, Barry Manilow. Sadly, it was 1976.

girl77007 said...

"Don't You Forget About Me" -- viva 1986! It wasn't even a close race in the balloting. And did get a class ring but not one of those traditional looking ones. God, I was such a rebel (Dottie).

califblondy said...

Let It Be for graduation.

Elton John's Makin Friends was a theme for some event.

Class of '75.

auntliddy said...

It was 1968. Didnt go, dont know. The music i liked was csn, richie havens, airplane- i cldnt relate to pop misic at all. Yup, i was a hippie!

kmidgitz said...

Prom - Heaven by Bryan Adams. I believe we stuffed the ballot box too. Colors were silver and blue. Pathetic. Kiss Off was the song me and my friends liked from the Violent Femmes.

I have no idea, also didn't go to the prom senior year, junior year yes, so I didn't feel like I was missing anything.

TH-ighs said...

1987 - Forever Young *Alphaville*

Star said...

Prince-Party like its 1999. Prom and Graduated in 99.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

1999 - My Heart Will Go on. Blech!

AKM said...

We got to vote, and I can't remember if we came up with "Wonderful Tonight" or "Saved the Best For Last." I'm pretty sure both songs were played, though. Class of '92.

Sir Mix A LOt.. Baby Got Back.

I'm just being funny, it's Friday and I just got paid.

Glitter said...

We didn't have one!!! But the biggest song of my graduating year was The Way We Were.

I Had the Time of My Life. 89 prom

Snapdragon said...

Forever Young would have been AWESOME. Super jel.

"Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" by the Platters.

Svetlana Monsoon said...

@ Real Dragon me too! R Kelly was for junior high (grade 9), and I can't remember my high school one. Probably too intoxicated ;)

Terri said...

Class of 82 here. Edge of 17 by Stevie Nicks, anyhing by Journey. We were the first class with MTV :)

kelgela2 said...

Something by the Rascal Flats. Most of my class was into country. Those of us that weren't were pissed.

MadamChef said...

Beauty and the Beast by Celine Dion & Peabo Bryson. The Reginas in charge of prom loved that movie & the rest of us bore the brunt of their fanaticism.

Lioness70 said...

Can't Help Falling In Love With You, the remake. Forgot who sang it.

We wanted Melt With You, but the nuns vetoed it.

Another parochial school survivor. ;-) Class of '88.

We May Never Pass This Way Again by Seals & Croft

ellehpee said...

No idea. Pick something big in June of 1986 and you have a good chance of being correct.

Guess I'm in a very small minority of people who endured high school only because graduating meant I could move thousands of miles away and never have to deal with those people ever again. ;)

Prom- The Promise, Tracy Chapman
Graduation- Time of your Life, Green Day

Yes, we had a Rastafarian reggae song as our class song in 1996. I hated it at the time, being all into punk and alternative. Now, I actually really like the song and think back to how unique my (rural, if you can believe it) school was in that this was the song picked, and one of the other songs in the running was a punk song nominated by a kid named after Jello Biafra.

Brenda L said...

I don't even fucking remember..."Highway To Hell" comes to mind....

Boxes Little Boxes said...

@Brenda L,

"Highway to Hell" is the absolute most perfect song to describe high school.

nightowl said...

Without You by Motley Crue. Hated it then, hate it now.

Steph.livelaughlove said...

Here we go again. Whitesnake 1995

Upside Downunder said...

I went to a pretty wealthy school so we had Steppenwolf come and play "Born To Be Wild" for our prom.

NYer said...

Van Morrison, "Moondance". A long time ago.

NaughtyNurse said...

Class of 89: Alphaville, Forever Young

Lee Tanner said...

A group of us rallied and got "Smells Like Teen Spirit" the most votes for our prom song, but the administration wouldn't approve it, so it ended up being some lame Bon Jovi song.

BostonGirl said...

Simple Minds Don't you forget about me - Graduation song. In your eyes Peter Gabriel -Prom. Class of 1993. Last Monday 6/3/13 was 20 yrs since I graduated high school. Wow time really does fly by LOL

BostonGirl said...

That is freaking awesome!

BostonGirl said...

I got one I have no idea where it is now LOL

-P said...

Jason Blue Eyes, Class of 98 here, and us too with that awful Titanic song! Ugh!

Borg Queen said...

I cant remember high school but 8th grade class song was "Never Say Goodbye' by Bon Jovi. In fact, whenever I hear that song, I am taken back to my 8th grade graduation.

Illinois Fan said...

Stairway to Heaven - Class of 1975. Yeah I'm old! And I gave my class ring to my high school boyfriend who wore it on a neckchain and he lost it. But I married him anyway and we'll celebrate our 36th anniversary in July.

April Walsh said...

Our senior song was "Save The Best For Last", which I hated as nothing about it but the word "last" makes it graduation-ish. And somehow our prom song was John Lennon's "Imagine." I also hated that. Not because it was a bad song, obviously, but because it's just not prom-ish. I think it all would have made more sense if they'd been switched so the overtly romantic one was for the prom and the "let's change the world" song was for graduation and I said so. A lot.

lutefleck said...

I went to two proms the year I graduated. Both had the same theme and the same son...Imagine. RIP John Lennon. I think everyone around my age was hit extremely hard when he was murdered.
