    On a more cynical note. Especially the opening line.

    This was a hit the year I graduated HS. Back there a long ways into the past.

    My cousin graduated the same year as I. This was their class song played at their graduation.

    Oddly, I didn’t come up with many graduation-specific examples from my era. Perhaps I wasn’t All There.

    From some reason, these came to me first




    My interest in Mayer didn’t last long, but I like this one, and it’s fitting.

    I also remember a columnist writing a scathing review of a class that chose this "Wasted On the Way" as their graduation song.. In the classical case of not listening to the actual song - the idiot assumed the song was about actually getting wasted. Sigh...

    I'll be damned if I can remember mine but this was my sisters two years later. Was used to accompany a really great slide show of candid shots of the class over their time in HS. I was kinda into that sort of thing back then and was impressed enough to still remember it.


    Edit: Only 48 years ago! :rolleyes:

    Possibly one of the few times I can mention The Macho Man in a music thread.
