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.

ExcelIent! I met these guys back in my groupie days in Albuq in the 70s. I guess we were all Born to be Wild.

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


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.


I never actually graduated but i loved a john stewert song called “Gold”.i can't get it to paste in here but the lyrics seemed to fit so well with where i was and wanted to be.

And that’s it.

Yep - that one

Those are all good!


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


Lovely song!

azzow2 Level 8 June 13, 2018

One of my faves.


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.

You'll think of one. It's going to pop into your head and say, "remember me?"


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

Sadly, no. Heroin and a serious head injury got the best of him. He's still alive. He lives with his sisters, but I don't know if he would even know who I was.


1989 Simple Minds

That is an awesome song. Thanks for sharing the memory. 78 is also the year I graduated but had been overseas. The American groups I was able to hear over there were Pink Floyd and Kansas so those stand out to me from that year.

Seals and croft "we may never pass this way again "


My class song was Jeremiah was a Bullfrog, 1972. 3 dog night

Correction I think it was by CCR. Soooooo.... long ago.

t1nick Level 8 June 13, 2018

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.

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.


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.

Slave to Love of course by Brian Ferry.


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..

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

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


Johny Mathis, "My One and Only Love" 1957
