What's the song you remember most from the year you graduated high school and what year was it?

Mine was 1978, and it was mine and my ex-husband's song. I get teary eyed when I hear it. I don't miss that man at all, but it's heartbreaking to see someone you love work so hard to go down the drain.

1965 Mr. Tambourine Man (Bob Dylan) as sung by The Byrds. Loved that electrified 12 string guitar sound.

Mine is not a song but an album Zeppelin IV, it came out in 1971 and I graduated in 1979 but it was the alblum I listed to the most. I love all of the songs.

Black Dog! One of my favorites of all time.
I like to key in on Bonham's drums in that song... incredible!

@Paul628 Hell yeah! It rocks but hell I think the whole album does, Not to mention arguably the greatest rock and roll song of all time stairway to heaven.

Music was under going major changed in the late 60's and between Woodstock, The Beatles and other English Musicians. Miss's Brown You have a Lovely Daughter which I think was by Herman's Hermits, but I was also into Bob Dylan, Janis, Otis Redding, Chicago, Manhattan Transfer and Skeeter Davis " Why does the Sun go on Shining" The Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison and yes Elvis was still alive but not anywhere near the above mentioned.

Lot of tough choices but I finally had to go with "Stone Blue" by Foghat from 1978. Surprised I leap frogged over favorites like Van Halen, Judas Priest and The Ramones.

Mine would be Tragedy from Christina Perri. It summed up exactly how I felt with my ex and that was year I decided to get out of the abusive relationship I was in. I looked for love and wanted to be cared for so badly that I ignored warning signs and finally had had enough..

Probably "Arthur's Theme" (The Best That You Can Do) by Christopher Cross. I remember because that was also the year I started college (1981), and my next-door-neighbor in my dorm would play it over and over and over again.

I just checked the list - gosh 70s pop was naff! None of the songs move me, but I do remember 10CC ‘Things we do for love’ being on horribly high rotation 😄

'84, Boys of Summer. Just seemed to summarize the feeling of moving on and having to let go.

"Sympathy for the Devil"--Rolling Stones, 1968. It went on to have further meaning the next year at Altamont.

Class of '81--"The Waiting," Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. In a year mixed with promise and anxiety over the direction of my life, it never failed to keep me going.

1972, anything in the radio... salsa, rock, latin jazz. Jethro's "Thick as a Brick" for example or the band Mandril. Harry Chapin "A better place to be".
