Reunion Music Requests?

The reunion committee has hired a DJ who takes requests, so the question is on the table: what were the most (or least) memorable songs of our high school years, and why?

For example, Tim Holt likes “Freddie’s Dead” by Curtis Mayfield. Whenever he hears it, Tim says, it reminds him one time when he got thrown out while rounding third base trying for home. Whatever. I never played baseball.

How about it, you Aging Eagles? What music takes you back to the Smokehole, the Restless Ribbon or the 51 Drive In? Let us know in the comments.
