Led Zeppelin to Lil Boosie – What Was THE Song at Your High School Prom?

Footloose – Paramount Pictures

Prom season is upon us. The traditions have changed, but the sentiment remains the same. It’s an exciting rite of passage for teenagers and a night when many parents don’t get a wink of sleep. Hearing the commercials for dress shopping and tuxedo rentals lately takes me back to my prom… in 1976. We held a class vote to decide on the band. Our choices were Zebra or The Meters. We chose Zebra. I asked my colleagues here at Townsquare Media Lafayette to name the song they remember as THE song from their prom. I’ll start: THE song from my prom was ‘Color My World’ by Chicago (it was an oldie, even then, but what a great song!)
