"When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion - when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you - when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - you may know that your society is doomed."

Too embarrassing -- probably the worst songs ever  (1976)

let me put it this way... since almost all music sucked in my year of graduation, our class song was written and sung by a very talented classmate at a senior celebration and graduation.  :p

A couple of artists I still listen to and enjoy to this day...

Coldplay "Clocks" 

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Oc1BtjvvRA[/youtube]

Dido "White Flag"

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMB4xtnFlvo[/youtube]

I only tolerate some pop music if its from the British.  :cheersmate:

All other pop from 2003 and other years before and after... yuck.

It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

Shouldn't have read this thread ... I'm feeling old, even though I'm still me. Don't remember music specific to the year I graduated, 1972. I was into CCR, and an obscure Brit hard rock band, Frijid Pink. Really liked Paul's first solo album, McCartney. Really like Malo's eponymous first album. Our class chose its class song in spring, 1969 - Steppenwolf's "Born to be Wild". My avatar pic is of me wearing a t-shirt from a recent decade-of-the-70s reunion; our school colors are orange and white, hence the orange tie-dye; the cartoon wolf is Woodie, the school mascot.
