Some of the songs that come to mind are:
She Wore An Itty Bitty Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. (Really?)
Wake Up Little Suzi. (For those who don’t remember, they had fallen asleep at the drive-in movie and their reputations were at risk.)
Don’t Be Cruel – Elvis is still famous and did so many – Love Me Tender was a favorite.
Whole Lot of Shakin’ goin’ on -Jerry Lee Lewis rocked this!
It’s All in the Game – (It started out, “Many a tear has to fall, but it’s all in the game.” It had a haunting tune.)
Great Balls of Fire – (I think I missed the meaning of this at the time.)
Love is a Many Splendored Thing – (The movie title song – I really liked both.)
So – what is my favorite? I don’t know quite how to choose. Each of the titles stir a different memory. We had so few problems. The biggest decisions included what to wear to school – mostly skirts, sweaters, bobby sox and saddle shoes. They were good days to be a kid.
My best friend, Linda, and I loved Mario Lanza and so I have to choose the song we spent hours dreaming to. He sang “Be My Love” and our dream was that he would sing it at our weddings. A great memory. “Be My Love” gets my favorite vote!!
What was your favorite song and your favorite memory of high school?
