It was a beautiful day.  The sun was shinning and the birds singing.  A short man stood before the group in caps and gowns.  “Today is an auspicious day to take that step into the future.  You have learned a great many things and will be able to take those things forward with you into whatever you become.  You will one day look back on high school…”  The speaker droned on.  Karen was just glad she got here.  A C- in world history about dragged her under, but her A+ in both Algebra and Creative Writing had saved the day.

It is time for Laura’s Weekly Song Challenge.  The rules are easy to follow…

  • Tag two people to join in on the fun


#1 Post a video of your favorite song by any of these artists:

Elton John, Styx, REO Speedwagon. Kansas, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Neil Diamond

I chose Kansas’ Dust In The Wind

#2  Post a hit song from the year you were born.

This is one of my favorites…

#3 Post a video of a song that was popular the year you graduated from high school.

There are a lot of good songs from ’85 but this was an “event” that I find hard to believe that can ever happen again.  How many artists can you name?


Now I am supposed to tag two people, but I want everyone to be involved so, I tag EVERYONE!  Please join in on the fun!
