There was other music I listened to a lot in high school, but when I hear it, I don't get transported back (ie, U2). Other songs, some of the really popular ones, certainly act as a time machine ("O.P.P.," anyone?) but they were never music I identified with.
So YOU - yes, you, reading this - tag, you're it. Transport us back to your high school experience.
