    Embarrassingly enough, it was the soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever. Bee Gees. Good Lord.

    So, you have an "Achy Breaky Heart" over that one?

    My older brother graduated in 1967. What a year--all the great albums that came out, the Summer of Love. But I doubt that the grad committee at his school allowed any of that music to be played at the grad dance. Unless it was Andy Williams or Acker Bilk, this was not the sort of music they'd approve. That dirty hippy music was too obscene.

    And yet, the number one selling album for 1967 was ‘More of The Monkees’ (by The Monkees).

    I think I have that album on vinyl from when I was very young.

    Wow, 50 Cent's "Get Rich or Die Tryin'." Was graduation that long ago?

    I guess it's appropriate (since I'm from NJ) that the #1 album of my graduation year was Bon Jovi's "Slippery When Wet". Meh.

    I have it (and several other Monkees albums) on my iPhone. I am NOT embarrassed by that.

    I also think my copy was a mono recording.
    The "record player" (turntable) in my house at that time was one of those units that was in the same console as our family's TV set (we still had a b&w model back then). The record player and speaker was on the left half side while the television set was on the right side of the cabinet.

    2003, eh? Same as me. I remember GRoDT's release, it seems like it didn't hit number one here in the Netherlands. The number ones over here were:

    'Escapology' by Robbie Williams
    'Come Away With Me', by Norah Jones
    'Clean Up', by Dutch singer Ilse DeLange
    'Birds Of Pray', by Live (yes, the guys who made 'Throwing Copper'; this album doesn't stand up to that one, though)
    'Omarm', by Dutch pop-rock band Blof
    '25 Jaar', a posthumous compilation from Dutch singer André Hazes
    'What If', by Dutch rock band Kane
    'Impressed', by Dutch Idol winner Jim Bakkum
    'Clones', by the Neptunes
    'Oya Lélé', by Belgian girl band K3
    and ''n Ons Geluk' by Dutch singer Frans Bauer

    not many of these give me that graduation year nostalgia, I gotta admit it. Closest are probably Escapology and Clones.

    By the list provided, it was Slippery When Wet by Bon Jovi.

    But here in Australia, it was Whispering Jack by John Farnham which spent a staggering 25 weeks at no. 1.

    I do recall a lot of Bon Jovi being played in the common room when I was in Year 12.

    Graduated in 1996 so this would be it:

    1. 'Jagged Little Pill,' Alanis Morissette (7.4 million units). 2. 'Falling Into You,' Celine Dion (6.1 million). 3. 'Score,' Fugees (4.5 million). 4. 'Tragic Kingdom,' No Doubt (4.4 million). 5. 'Daydream,' Mariah Carey (3.1 million). 6. 'All Eyez On Me,' 2Pac (3 million). 7. 'Load,' Metallica (3 million). 8. 'Secrets,' Toni Braxton (2.9 million). 9. 'The Woman In Me,' Shania Twain (2.8 million). 10. 'What's The Story Morning Glory,' Oasis (2.6 million).

    Aside from Metallica while I like their earlier stuff I didn't listen to 'Load' so I don't know whether it's good but the rest are just stinkers, judging by it this was post Grunge and before pop acts like Spice Girls and Britney Spears came along.
