Nothing beats laying around naked in front of the fireplace. Until the manager at Cracker Barrel comes over and says you’re causing a scene

sandybrook said...

Hahah a trick question from Enty who wants to measure the demographics of his readership.

Moose said...

Thin Lizzy's "The Boys Are Back In Town" (graduated 1976)

To make it easy. I graduated in 94.

I'll be your dream, I'll be your wish, I'll be your fantasy.
I'll be your hope, I'll be your love, be everything that you need.
I love you more with every breath, truly madly deeply do
I will be strong, I will be faithful 'cause I'm counting on a new beginning.
A reason for living. A deeper meaning.
I want to stand with you on a mountain.
I want to bathe with you in the sea.
I want to lay like this forever.
Until the sky falls down on me

cheesegrater15 said...

Omg, I can't remember. I've blocked out a lot of my teen years. I liked something different every year.

J said...

Fox on the Run of course.

Sara, Making It Work said...

"Disarm" by Smashing Pumpkins comes to mind. But you're asking an awful lot to narrow it down to one.

yepthatsme said...

I graduated in 2010.

sandybrook said...

Pennsylvania 6-5000👆

Jon said...

Anything by Heart. I was obsessed with the Wilson sisters all through my high school days.

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

There was this song when I was a senior in high school that had some lyrics that were occasionally misheard as, "and I would beat off a guy, I would beat off a guy". Not necessarily my absolute favorite but there have been some good remixes of it over the last two decades. lol.

Trapped said...

Baby come back
Sailing
Ohhh we

Guesser said...

Impossible,but a good memory is putting "All the Young Dudes"on the school cafeteria record player and seeing the reaction.

Simon said...

Ha, or better question, how old are you?

Weekittylass said...

Way too many to choose! ‘71-‘75. It changed constantly depending on what I was drinking and drugging.

MDAnderson said...

Wonderwall by Oasis
Fantasy w/ODB and Mariah

J Smith said...

No particular song, just put any sublime CD on and press play.

longtimereader said...

Doug E Fresh and the get fresh crew - 'The Show'

SeeDanRun said...

It would have been an Oasis song, but I changed my mind about my favorite every week. Maybe Supersonic held first place most often?

Sd Auntie said...

Surrender by Cheap Trick and Slide by Slave

Ophelia said...

I Want You to Want Me by Cheap Trick or Total Eclipse of the Heart cuz I wasn't into 2000s pop but was clearly still an emotional teen lol

David Howes said...

This should prove that I am the oldest CDAN Poster on this site!

“Mama Told Me (Not to Come)” (1970)

I hated High School. But, I was in from 1970 to 1974.

And during that time, I thought "Baba O'Riley" by The Who was about being in high school.

(I know, I was such a dumb-ass!)

Brayson87 said...

Nice try ;)

Dena said...

So. Central Rain - REM

Tuesdi said...

Beast of Burden - Stones

Unknown said...

Awesome choice, Dena— SCR is my favorite REM song by far. My high school choice was “Everybody Hurts” ... because adolescence. 😂

dee lewis said...

Darkness On The Edge Of Town- B.Springsteen

Dena said...

I get you! Over the summer I listened to the R U TALKIN’ REM RE:ME podcast and it’s crazy how unintelligible the lyrics were on their early albums...still the best of the lot, though, imo.

PghGirl said...

Anything Guns n Roses or AC DC

Tricia13 said...

I love Baby Come Back/Player.
Okay it everyday.
Mine is probably “perfect kiss/new order” and Avalon/Roxy Music

Jim O'Sullivan said...

No, Dave, I'm the oldest poster (unless Sandybrook isn't kidding about Pennsylvania 6-500).

Here's your proof:

Weekittylass said...

I think Boo has us all beat Jim.

sandybrook said...

+1 to Boo. Anyhow Pennsylvania 6-5000 was the real phone number of the hotel that is directly across the street from Madison Square Garden and i think was called the Pennsylvanian hotel in 1940 when the song was written by Glenn Miller. I knew it and stayed in it on bad nights as the Statler Hilton and I have no idea what it is now, but I'm certain its still there, remodeled.

Tricia13 said...

Yes ... still there.
It’s a go to for locals who don’t want to get ona train or want to party pre/post concert (MSG)

Sabre said...

Prisoner of Society by The Living End.

Man, I loved those guys. Still do. Their live shows are always gold.

Jim O'Sullivan said...

+1 Tricia

I tried out for Jeopardy there once. I passed but they never called . Too ugly for television, I assume.

sandybrook said...

Like I said I stayed in it on bad nights😢

Trak512 said...

Soo hard to choose .
I suppose my top 2-3 would be
Billy Joel -Just the Way You Are;÷
Bee Gees- How Deep is Your Love (or Nights On Broadway)

Cee Kay said...

I don't remember much about high school, but I know for a fact I never had a favourite song. Work with THAT, Enty.

Green Tea said...

The Cult - Edie

Skyler the Weird said...

Aimee by Pure Prairie League. Loved a girl named Cindy but Aimee was my favorite song.

B626 said...

Brightside
Lil PEEP
(RIP Gus!)

Hayley said...

To Be With You by Mr. Big

malcam66 said...

Gimme Shelter - always.

Fox on the Run is pretty great btw. I had them play it at a recent HS reunion and we danced our asses off to it.

Susannah Leigh Murray said...

She’s got that Vibe by R Kelly. It plays and my friends from high school still say ‘this is Susie’s song!’

Depeche Model said...

Smells like teen spirit

Humor Me said...

"That's the way Love is..." Marvin Gaye, 1969

mud said...

No More Mr. Nice Guy by Alice Cooper.

Super Comic Fun Time! said...

High school was four years, how could I have just one favorite song?

Maybe it was something like Girl You Want by Devo or This Wreckage by Gary Numan. There was so much good and innovative movie back then.

I also discovered David Bowie in those year, pre-Let's Dance and I owuld play the heck out of any David Bowie album I could get my hands on, most of which didn't come out when I was in high school, so far as I'm aware. Our library had a copy of The Man Who Sold The World and this double album, (was it?) of a bunch of novelty songs Bowie recorded before becoming Bowie, stuff like The Laughing Gnome, Tony Day, and those other pre-Bowie songs, had a really cool cartoon cover.

Anyway, there cannot just be one favorite from that era.

BlissBoo said...

I graduated in 1985 and became a club DJ. In high school I was deep into Blondie, Culture Club, Duran Duran, and the Police. Amongst many, many others, but two songs stick out for me and that would be "Heart of Glass" by Blondie and "Save a Prayer" by Duran Duran.

Ah, those were the days, the best in music.

PhantomM said...

Hey Jealousy by Gin Blossoms
