Writer's Block: High school musical

If you had to choose a theme song for your middle or high school years, what would it be, and why?

Firstly oh gard, high school musical please no.........XD!

Well, when I was in year 12 back in 2006 I was listening to The Ataris and their song In This Diary was sort of a soundtrack for my feelings for ending high school and becoming an adult (of sorts....X3). Back in the day when I listened to pop punk sorta stuff, very youth oriented lyrics XD!

SONG HERE!

****************************************************************************
Here in this diary,
I write you visions of my summer.
It was the best I ever had.
There were choruses and sing-alongs,
And that unspoken feeling of knowing
Right now is all that matters
All the nights we stayed up talking
and listening to 80's songs;
quoting lines from all those movies that we love.
It still brings a smile to my face.
I guess when it comes down to it...

Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up:
These are the best days of our lives.
The only thing that matters
is just following your heart
and eventually you'll finally get it right.

Breaking into hotel swimming pools,
and wreaking havoc on our world.
Hanging out at truck stops just to pass the time.
The black top's singing me to sleep.
Lighting fireworks in parking lots,
illuminate the blackest nights.
Cherry cokes under this moonlight summer sky.
2015 Riverside, it's time to say, "goodbye."
Get on the bus, it's time to go.

Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up:
These are the best days of our lives.
The only thing that matters
is just following your heart,
and eventually you'll finally get it right.

The "being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up" part was very nostalgic for me at the time XD! As was the whole of The Ataris' 'So Long Astoria' album ^^.

Yeah ^^! I never had anything that they talked about like young people in love and doing crazy things but I got the vibe at least ^^! It means a lot to me this album. I don't listen to pop punk, it was definitely a phase of my life listening to it.
