First, big props to jkkFL for coming up with this weekend’s theme!
As the end of the school year and graduations arrive, so does that once-in-a-lifetime memorable evening called Senior Prom. It may have been memorable for the dancing, the partying or for some of us who go back a bit, the powder blue tuxedos.
Whether looked back on fondly or with a bit of cringing, the nostalgia of the music, the friends and the times of one’s Prom can’t help but bring a smile.
So, this weekend we travel back to those innocent times, sharing the soundtrack of that singular night and times.
I begin with the song that was my class’ official Class song and the theme song of our prom (I had voted for a “rockier” song but this was the winner):
Your Song – Elton John
Other songs I recall that were at or surrounding Prom Night:
Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow – Fleetwood Mac
Blinded by the Light – Manfred Mann
The Year of the Cat – Al Stewart
The Things We Do for Love – 10CC
Lido Shuffle – Boz Scaggs
