The more things change..

I was looking through my old graduating-year high school yearbook. I came across the "Grad Year Memories" and thought I'd share them with you:

There Will Never Be Another Tonight
Everything I Do, I Do It For You

Bryan Adams
I guess he was bigger than I remember at that time.
C&C Music Factory
Doesn't everybody still dance now when they hear 'Things That Make You Go Hmmmm' or 'Gonna Make You Sweat'?
Ah yes. The shirts that let the whole world know how nervous you really are. (And where his hands really were.) Does anyone else recall breathing heavily on these shirts? Or was that just me?

Hockey on Strike
Some Leaf fans out there might be wishing this were still true...
Wayne's World
Bohemian Rhapsody
Then it was Wayne's World that made it big again. Now it's The Muppets. "Mama!... Mama?..."
Snow days
William Tell Overture by Rossini
Let's Talk About Sex, I'm Too Sexy
Parents everywhere were pleased about these songs, I'm sure. Especially the first one.
Not! Shyeah! Right! Exsqueeze me?
We were really lovin' Wayne's World, I see!
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
On The View the other day they were talking about this concept as if it were revolutionary...
Beverly Hills 90210
Of course, this one's back again!

Saturday Night Live
Of course, this one's still around. Right? Does anyone watch anymore?
Meningitis scare
Now it's the swine flu..
The fall of the Soviet Union
Polka Dot Door skits
Apparently I have a bad memory... What? (Or was I skipping?)
Los Angeles Riots
Life is a Highway-Tom Cochrane
Now it's Life is a Highway-Rascal Flatts (over and over... we have 'Cars' fans in the house)
Now You're Laughin'
Gotta Have It (Uh-Huh)
Let's Get Rocked
This song still kicks ass - and Def Leppard still rocks!
Euchre, Butt*
Apparently that one was edited for the yearbook...
Who's Bob?
Happy 125th Birthday, Canada!
This year will make it 143 for Canada. She doesn't look a day over 125, though. Have you had work done?

fun post :) Made me smile because i have a lot of the same memories.

we have one of these in our house too and always makes me laugh, re: "Now it's Life is a Highway-Rascal Flatts (over and over... we have 'Cars' fans in the house)"

I remember nearly all of that! "Everything I Do" was always played at dances when I was at public I slowed danced to Mr. Adams a few times ;).

I remember ALL THE SNOW DAYS we had at Victoria P.S. Oh, and there was also the times when GDCI had snowdays and we didn't. I held a vendetta against GDCI because of that ;)

I vaguely remember the Fall of the Soviet Union...see, I've been a history geek my entire life ;) Hee hee...

I could go on about all the different memories this brought back for me! Awesome entry, sis :)

Alright, sis, this has been bugging me since you posted this...

What is 'Who's Bob?' exactly?

I actually am not sure! I'm thinking it's an inside GDCI thing, not an actual 90s thing... My mind will not retrieve that information. Sorry. It's bugging me, too!
