Songs released during the Leaving Cert ignite a certain emotion within us that we'll never be able to recreate: FREEDOM.
It's a time of 18ths, big changes, and undeniably great weather. So get a load of this lot – and enjoy that reminiscing.
1. There's A Whole Lotta Lovin' - Six

Just when you thought you were over that teen angst, Nickelback served you some more on a platter.

Was it possible to do the Leaving that year and NOT know all the lyrics?
