Do you ever hear a song and it transports you to a different time and place from your past? With high school graduations in the air, a few staff members of the Library took time to reflect on songs that reminded of them of high school, whether it be a song they listened to nonstop or one that summed up their experience. It was hard to narrow it down to just one song!
Song: “Stand“ by R.E.M.
Song: “If You Leave“ by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark
Song: “Tonight, Tonight” by Smashing Pumpkins
Song: “Hey, Suburbia” by Screeching Weasel
Song: “Blister in the Sun” by The Violent Femmes
Song: “Hear You Me” by Jimmy Eat World
Song: “Teach Your Children” by Crosby, Stills and Nash
Song:”Tainted Love” by Soft Cell
Song: “New Sensation” by INXS
Song: “American Pie” by Don McLean
