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.

Yep - that one


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.


1981 Rick James "Superfreak" - first kiss with a girl who loved this song.


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.

I forgot 1979

  1. The year I discovered Tom Petty, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Traffic, and The Pretenders.

One of my faves.


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..

This was 78 but it was an important song for me...


Lovely song!


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.

1989 Simple Minds

Watch "Steppenwolf - The Pusher [Lyrics]" on YouTube

@Tecolote. Small world... Easy Rider was cool.


'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.


Beatles Michele. 1966


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.

SonofMax Level 7 June 14, 2018

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".


AC/DC's TNT, Because we we're TNT in '83...Our class song


Blowin in the wind, 1963.

California Dream - Mamas & Papas 1966

I hope he is OK and has turned his life around to the extent he can. I graduated in 73.......

Mitch07102 Level 7 June 13, 2018

Johny Mathis, "My One and Only Love" 1957

JanGarber Level 7 June 13, 2018

I graduated in 1984... I can't really pinpoint one song, there were so many songs ranging from the hideously bad to very good.
I didn't listen to much from that year anyway, I liked early 70's up to new wave & some punk.
