Friday 5 for July 5: High School Music

Hello, and welcome to this week’s Friday 5! Please copy these questions to your webspace. Answer the questions there; then leave a comment below so we’ll all know where to check out your responses. Please don’t forget to link us from your website!

As you know, I generally avoid sets of music questions, mostly because there are other music-themed, weekly memes out there doing a great job. However, something came up in shuffle mode and now all I can think about is the music of my high-school years, so let’s do this.

  1. What song, album, or artist, disliked by you in high school, now sounds pretty good?
  2. What specific high-school memory do you have of discovering some song, album, or artist you considered old?
  3. What song or album best serves as the soundtrack for your senior year of high school? (bonus challenge: answer this question with a different song or album for each year of high school!)
  4. What’s a song, album, or artist from your high-school years you loved then (and might still love) but have great difficulty listening to now, and what’s the reason?
  5. What song, album, or artist from your high-school years, seemingly forgotten nowadays, do you still listen to with fondness?

Thanks for playing, and have a “When the loving starts and the light goes down, there’s not another living soul around…” kind of weekend!
