Thinking Homecoming Thoughts...

So, I'm wrapping up the Homecoming bonfire and game sections of "13 to Life" and getting ready to get everyone into the dance. Realizing this, I decided a general playlist was in order. Of course, as a writer, you never want to necessarily date your writing by referring too much to a particular time or event (unless you're writing a historical). So I thought about having the school give their deejay a pre-approved playlist (yes, kids, this DID--and sometimes still does happen).

I mentioned the idea to my husband, suggesting he help me throw together a brainstormed list. He had a better suggestion, though--"If you just have them do a theme--like 80s music--you know it's any time after the 80s."

And he's right. Man! So I'm brainstorming a playlist from the 80s that accentuates the angst and hints at future action and continues with some subtext. If I had more time, I'd...Hmm. I'm throwing together the poll--NOW. I don't expect a big number of votes, but I want to know from readers anyhow...
