Mine was "Seasons in the Sun" by Terry Jacks - I'm not big on music that's less that 200 years old, so I had NO clue what that sounded like - (the
first thing that went through my head were the words "seasons in the sun" to the tune of Aerosmith's "Janie's got a gun"
Then I went to "letssingit.com" and when I saw all the lyrics, I knew what the song was, from hearing it on all those "hits of the 70's 80's and
90's" commercials. I only remembered the chorus, and when I read the rest of the lyrics, I thought "hmmmm, kinda depressing"
So then, I looked up my 18th Birthday, and that was "To Be With You" by Mr. Big - I don't remember that song as being a part of the "soundtrack of
my senior year of high-school" - but I guess it was.
Then I looked up the day I graduated, to see if I remembered that song from graduation week at the beach - it was: "Jump" by Kris Kross - I
embarassedly remembered "jumping" to that song in a drunken stupor on the deck at the beach house, right before falling off onto a sand dune and
dragging about 4 other people with me. We were all drunk and having the time of our lives! - All of us attempting to cooperate and get the sand off
each other ended up in all of us getting fresh with the water-hose and each other as we "cleaned" up - the worst part was getting wet sand out of
the carpet the next morning, with a pounding headache - but still, it was a pretty good time.
Thanks for the memories
