23 Songs You’ll Remember If You Did Your Leaving Cert in 2004

A plethora of stompers


The Leaving Cert (or, 'The Big LC' as you probably called it at the time) is a significant time for all. 

It's the first time you have a bit of responsibility, the first time you'll be allowed into a club legally and the first real time you become one with the true art form that is procrastination.

And with a set of chart hits like these streaming through the airwaves at the time, who could blame you?

1. Milkshake - Kelis

You know where you were when this song came out.

2. Toxic - Britney Spears

3. Mysterious Girl - Peter Andre

Hard to believe there was a time that this song didn't exist.

4. Cha Cha Slide - Mr C The Slide Man

5. She Wants To Move - N.E.R.D

Any song that samples a dog barking is fine by us.

The ultimate 2004 experience.
