What was your high school graduation song?

Close your eyes and think back to your last year in high school.

Well, don't really close your eyes. Then you wouldn't be able to keep reading. Are your eyes back open? OK.

What was your class song? Did you even have a class song?

I had one, but I can't remember it that well (my memory of high school as a whole is a little hazy) ...

I think one of my classmates wrote an original song and performed it at graduation. I'm not sure if we also had a pre-recorded Official Class Song or not. Maybe that was it. If any of my classmates are reading this, please fill me in here.

Also, this may make you feel old or young (it makes me feel old), but I graduated high school in 2001. Wow.

That was back before 9/11 and Iraq. A whole bunch of my 180-some classmates joined the armed services because we hadn't had a real war since Vietnam. If you think 180 classmates is nothing, consider this: My high school was the only public school in the entire county.

Back then, you could still download music (illegally) through Napster. "Lady Marmalade" by Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mya and Pink had a stranglehold on radio.

OK, enough of my reminiscing. What was your class song, and what year did you graduate?
