I remember my prom, the big expensive dress I made my parents buy but only wore once, the stretch limo and our dates struggling to fit our dresses inside. That memory still makes me laugh.
But after the clock hit midnight, the dress, the shoes and the corsage were stored in the back of my closest. Other than pictures, the only reminder I have now is when the songs I heard at prom come back on the radio.
Okay… so cheesy introduction… I know. But it needs to be said, it’s prom right?
If you’re wondering what should be on your prom playlist this year, here are some suggestions. Of course we have the classics, like Vitamin C, mixed with some newer hits like Calvin Harris.
Vitamin C — Graduation
As sappy as this song is, no prom would be complete without it playing at the end of the night. The memory of this song playing at prom will stay with you for life. So do me a favor. When this song plays at your prom, grab your bestie and relive your high school memories together.
Jay Z and Kanye – Young Forever
I originally considering including Alphaville’s “Forever Young” but then thought, hey why not give it a new spin with “Young Forever?” Even if you didn’t love high school, prom is one of those landmarks that indicate you’re growing up.
