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

A classic.

2. Whenever, Wherever - Shakira

3. Unchained Melody - Gareth Gates

4. How You Remind Me - Nickelback

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

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

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

6. Eminem - Without Me

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

7. A Little Less Conversation - Elvis vs JXL

And that Nike ad.

8. Evergreen - Will Young

9. Me Julie - Ali G and Shaggy


10. I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman - Britney Spears

A song that launched a thousand feelings.

11. Girlfriend - N*SYNC

12. Freak Like Me - Sugababes

Oh, Mutya.

13. Holly Valance - Kiss Kiss

14. No More Drama - Mary J Blige

15. Ronan Keating - If Tomorrow Never Comes

Is there anything Ronan can't do?

16. Follow Da Leader - Nigel & Marvin


17. Liberty X - Just A Little

18. Enrique Inglesias - Escape

19. And finally, Fat Joe feat Ashanti - What's Love
