What is a song that reminds you most of a special event from when you were in high school?
The town I loved happened to be Avignon, France, because I had participated in an exchange program and family stay there. Mon mec à moi by Patricia Kaas will always remind me of my time there.  

What song seemed to always be played at every dance or pep assembly at your school?
Crazy For You by Madonna and Take My Breath Away by Berlin

What is a song that reminds you of  a fun time from school?
Wipeout by the Surfaris.  Our Parkway West Senior Women dance was choreographed to this song!

What song always made you dance in high school?
Pump Up The Volume by M/A/R/R/S

What was the first song you remember purchasing or downloading?
My first purchase was Another One Bites The Dust by Queen.

What favorite song from high school do you still listen to pretty often?
Don’t You Forget About Me  by Simple Minds

What is your all-time favorite song and why?
This was a tough one!  Probably Where the Streets Have No Name by U2, because I saw them in concert not long after this song was released. It was possibly the best concert I have ever seen. This was the opening song! 

Name your TOP FIVE favorite songs from high school.
Where the Streets Have No Name U2
Hysteria Def Leppard
Hold Me Now Thompson Twins
Bizarre Love Triangle New Order
In Your Eyes Peter Gabriel
