What is a song that reminds you most of a special event from when you were in high school?
NSYNC’s It’s Gonna Be Me, reminds me of Prom my senior year. A good friend of mine remembered the entire dance. We, his friends, had no clue, but it was hilarious to watch.

What song seemed to always be played at every school dance or pep assembly at your school and what did you think of it?
The Electric Slide by Marcia Griffiths. It was fun to participate in. The entire school would jump in at our dances.

Bruce Springsteen’s Born to Run

What was the first song you remember purchasing or downloading?
Michael Jackson’s Bad

What favorite song from high school do you still listen to pretty often?
Blink 182’s All The Small Things 

What was the best concert you ever went to in high school? How much did it cost?
Dave Matthews Band. The concert cost $75, and I remember getting to drive with my boys an hour away.  It rained that night, so I remember doing a mud slip-n-slide and coming back covered in mud, but I had a blast.

What is your all-time favorite song and why?
The Temper Trap’s  Sweet Disposition
