I loved prom season when I was in high school for two reasons: it meant getting a fancy dress and the end of the school year was near.
Today I was leaving work and I overheard someone talk about picking up a tuxedo so her son could go to prom. I nearly stopped dead in my tracks - and then it dawned on me - it really is prom season!
Oh glorious time of gowns, flowers, limos...and music! I went to three proms - all of them had a DJ because my school (apparently) didn't have enough money for live music. I can't really remember the themes of my proms - but I know the music selected was NOT Glam. Of course the DJ spun staples like "You Shook Me All Night Long" by AC/DC, but from what I recall many of the theme songs revolved around Celine Dion.
If I was planning a prom now, you better believe it would be Glam: music, hairspray and lycra baby!
Here are my picks for best prom theme song:
"Wait for You" - Bonham
"Heaven" - Warrant
"Is This Love" - Whitesnake
"Best of Both Worlds" - Van Halen
I graduated high school in 1998 so these songs were not on the Billboard chart during that time - but maybe you did go to high school in the 1980s. If so, did you have a Glam theme?
What Glam song would you pick for your prom?
