Writer's Block: High school musical  
If you had to choose a theme song for your middle or high school years, what would it be, and why?


If you had to choose a theme song for your middle or high school years, what would it be, and why?

I don't think I would have picked this at the time, but with 20/20 hindsight, it's perfect.







Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man)
Performed by Styx
Lyrics by Tommy Shaw
from the album
The Grand Illusion


Relax... Take it easy.

You see the world through your cynical eyes
You're a troubled young man, I can tell
You've got it all in the palm of your hand
But your hand's wet with sweat and your head needs a rest

And you're fooling yourself, if you don't believe it
You're kidding yourself, if you don't believe it
Why must you be such an angry young man
When your future looks quite bright to me
How can there be such a sinister plan
That could hide such a lamb, such a caring young man

You're fooling yourself if you don't believe it
You're kidding yourself if you don't believe it

Get up! Get up! Get back on your feet!
You're the one they can't beat, and you know it!
Come on! Come on! Let's see what you've got!
Just take your best shot, and don't blow it!


You're fooling yourself if you don't believe it
You're killing yourself if you don't believe it

Get up! Get up! Get back on your feet!
You're the one they can't beat, and you know it!
Come on! Come on! Let's see what you've got!
Just take your best shot, and don't blow it!



(Regular readers of my journal will remember that I just posted this back at the beginning of April; it's still the right answer.)

I saw the question today and was thinking of several possible songs. I generally try and block out any memories of high school, and grade school... OK anything pre-university.

I just heard this song a few days ago when I got an album. I think I would pick this one too, in hindsight at least. The problem was at the time, the third last line... I didn't know that. It took an awful long time to learn that one line.
