OK, here's a (potentially) dumb question for you, inspired by a conversation I had with dh this afternoon while listening to (& singing along with) "Hey Jude" on the classic rock radio station we listen to. When I was in jr high (back in the mid-70s), "Hey Jude" by the Beatles was always the last song played at every school dance I ever went to. As soon as you heard Paul sing "Hey Jude..." you knew the night was over.
In high school, we "graduated" to "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin, lol.
What was the unofficial "last dance" song when you went to high school? Were there regional variations??
And what's the last song played at high school dances these days? (IS there an unofficial "last dance" song these days?) Anyone have teenagers in their life and know? (I'm going to try to remember to ask our nephew, next time we see him.)
