High School Song

Do you remember what songs you listened to when you were in high school?

One of my all time favorite songs from high school was “Beds are Burning” from Midnight Oil.

My friend Jess introduced me to the band Midnight Oil. Jess has always been musically inclined and was always up on new music. Well, I borrowed Jess’ tape of Midnight Oil and ended up losing it. I paid for a replacement copy but still to this day feel bad about losing the tape.

On the off chance this song comes on the radio, I always think of my dear friend.

And how I lost her tape.

Guilt twenty years later is just ridiculous.

Jess, this song is for you.

I’m calling us even now 🙂

Do you remember a favorite song from high school?

  1. oh yes, LOVED midnight oil. couldn’t get enough of this song. but i think my favorite songs in high school were by GnR. 🙂 the whole Appetite for Destruction album rocked my socks off on a daily basis the last two years of high school.

  2. Jen, I hate to tell you this, but I don’t even remember you losing that tape. I am, however, THRILLED that you liked Midnight Oil so much. I do remember listening to that album a lot. Apparently two different copies. That first one was probably wearing out anyway. 🙂 My favorite song off that album was The Dead Heart: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16bFBzx7I_0

    Gosh, there’s so much music from high school I don’t even know where to start. My other big loves were REM and Rush (a good Canadian band for ya’), U2, I quite liked Sinead O’Connor’s album, The Police, Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers. The list goes on and on…..

  3. I remember nothing of high school…nothing like songs and such, at least. I’ve been trying to put high school behind me as much as possible! Lol!


  4. I heard that the lead singer of Midnight Oil has become a politician and environmental activist in Australia. I guess he put all his angst to good use!
