5. Here Come The Good Times - Ireland World Cup Squad


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.

A classic.

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

This may remind you of how you missed Robbie Keane's goal, but still.
