Taking a break from stories of Squeakles' birth, I just had to mention this... J has his music player set to random and "Stairway to Heaven" just came up. I was immediately transported back to junior high dances in the cafeteria of my school, where this was always the last song. Looking it up online, I see that it was not just my school, but (at least) schools across the northern U.S. and Canada in the 90's. Isn't that the strangest thing? I mean, the song was released in 1971 (I think), so why did it make that comeback in the 90's? And it's not like it's a slow song all the way through, so why play it as the last song? I'm thinking maybe it's because it allows you to slow dance, but then when it gets faster you can start leaving the dance while music is still playing, but I don't know. Any ideas?
Was this also the last song at your junior high and high school dances?
