The Playlist: High School Songs

Now that our Ultimate Canadian Hip-Hop playlist is closed, we're going back.. to school. We want to hear your musical memories from high school: old favourites, prom anthems, or even the song you're now ashamed you ever loved. Email us at daybreaknorth@cbc.ca, call 1-866-340-1932, or tweet us your pick @daybreaknorth. You'll have a chance at a Daybreak mug, plus the opportunity to relive your high school memories.
