Music was such an important part of our lives as children. We got caught up in dance trends, listened to our favorite songs on the radio, and amassed record collections that we proudly displayed whenever we could. Looking back, we can see that certain songs hold a special place in our hearts due to the memories they evoke. If you’re anything like us, music had a huge influence on your life during high school; these were the formative years when we experienced so much!
So we decided to do some research and look up the Billboard number one song from the years we were in high school. The top songs from 1960 to 1989 are listed below. In addition, we’ve included our personal favorites from each year. Let us know what you think, and if the songs below remind you of anything you listened to in high school! And, of course, please share any other great memories you have in the comments section below. 1960
