The end of May brings a welcome break from the barrage of patio brunch and festy pics that signal the arrival of spring on Instagram. According to my calculations, 100% of the people I know attended a graduation ceremony this past weekend, treating us all to rare glimpses into their family life with photos of wide-eyed little brothers and sisters ready to take the world by storm (once they sober up).
But when I think of the senior year that set the course for my life, it’s not college that comes to mind. It was four years earlier, when my high school sensibilities and warped sense of time allowed every day to be The Greatest Day Of My Life. I generally swear off nostalgia with the defensive panic of a 30-year-old bridesmaid, but nothing sends me into a maudlin spiral faster than the songs that soundtracked my last month of high school.
So for this month’s installation of The One, I asked the ATG staff — what’s THE ONE song that brings you back to senior year? Check out everyone’s answers and let us know your graduation anthem in the comments.
