CTV Challenge #5: Year you graduated  
They say music is the soundtrack of our lives. That said, I'd like folks to pick a song from the year they graduated High School. If you don't like any of those, go for college/university, but preferably High School since that's when you transition from child/teen to adult in most cases. If you haven't yet graduated, feel free to choose one from this year or select a significant milestone from your life like getting your driver's license. :D

Since I know that not all of us can remember what happened that far back (LOL), here is a link to links of the Billboard Top 100 for each year (scroll to the bottom of the page). You aren't limited to those songs, perhaps there was another song off one of those albums, or one by an obscure artist or a country artist since that's all pop/rock music. :)

The deadline for this challenge is Saturday, 13 October at 12PM US Pacific Time

Um, what if you graduated this year? It's a song from 2007 then?

Yup. Unfortunately since the year's not quite over, there is no top 100 to use as a jumping point. :D But any song from this year is fair game.

Alrighty. :) Oh, and by graduate I mean I've finished compulsory education in England, I'm not sure if that's the same as an American graduation, it might be two years earlier. :S

Hmm... so I need to pick a milestone-year. That could be anything important to me, right? Should the video also include some personal influence? (how do I discribe this? xD) Uhm... or should it just fit to the song?

Yup. I thought that doing something like graduation would allow vidders to pick something more meaningful than a song from the year they were born. That and I don't care for much from that year for me. LOL

Each person is free to interpret the song as they see fit, so the choice is yours.

:P you got me xD I wanted to choose a song from the year I was born. I'm not old enough for these big milestones so that would only do it for me. Still allowed? *puppy eyes*

Well, I don't know of any bigger milestone out there. LOL Go for it.
