I'm not sure there was any "official" theme song, but I remember hearing an awful lot of Prince's "1999" at different events. Yes, it was '99.

Beer, beer, for old Wooter High.
Seniors for Whiskey, Juniors for Rye.
Sophomores, Sophomores, out for Gin,
But don't let the sober Freshman in.

We never stagger, we never fall.
We sober up on Wood Alcohol.
And the royal faculty, lies drunk on the ballroom floor.
More, More, More!!!

(Stolen, and slightly modified, to fit the occasion. Props to whoever recognizes the original.)

Rumour had it that "Dust In The WInd" by Kansas http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tH2w6Oxx0kQ had won as my class song, but the faculty thought it was too depressing ("...all we are is dust in the wind."). So they thought they'd be clever and rigged the voting, allowing Paul Anka's "The Times of Your Life" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QCBeZi0bRI to win. We never would've known if it wasn't for the fact one of the Senior Class worked in the front office, overheard the shenanigans and ratted them out right as we were lining up to walk across the field on the night of Graduation.

I don't know if we didn't have one or if I just wasn't cool enough to be told.

@shrdlu: Is the original the Notre Dame fight song? I think the words fit what I remember of it.

I think my senior class picked Billy Joel's "This is the Time to Remember" for our "class song". But no one really cared. We were not a unified group at all, didn't even really have that core group of popular kids that you could point to and say, "That's the class of '93". I remember chatting with a couple of teachers and having them agree that we were one of the least unified classes they could remember. At graduation I played "who's that and have you seen them before?" with the people sitting next to me...215 in my graduating class. High school was not my least favorite time of my life...but usually it was only a little better than junior high.

@lavikinga: Similar situation here. We voted on our class song, motto and colors. The respective winners were "Let the Good Times Roll" by The Cars, "We'll try anything once, and twice if we like it!" and "silver and blue" which I think was in honor of the Dallas Cowboys. The superintendent's daughter was in our class, and didn't like the choices. They were changed to "The Rainbow Connection" by Kermit the Frog, "Grin and bare(sic) it" and "orange and black"(our school colors). Good times.

@gt0163c: Yep. Notre Dame. You win the prize (a chance at being the new CEO for all of Wooterdom). My words are much better (although not all that different). :-D

@jsimsace: Oh great. Now I have that silly "Rainbow" song stuck in my head.

Our theme song was Clapton's 'Wonderful Tonight'. I'll never forget because when they printed the glassware for the Senior Prom, they mistakenly spelled Wonderful with two L's!

The one that sticks in my head wasn't a class theme song, but the theme for homecoming my senior year. It was "Never Tear Us Apart" by INXS. They played it on constant repeat during the assembly where they were announcing the homecoming court. I liked the song, but I didn't want to hear it for a VERY long time after that!

I can't remember senior year, but the senior theme song my freshman year was "Freak me" by Silk. We were at a religious private school so they would not allow us to print the title of the song in the yearbook. We had to put "music by Silk."

I don't recall our song but I do remember the song they played when the Home Coming Queen was escorted out to the field: Here Come the Clowns.

I was LOL'ing.

Class song? My class didn't have a class song. (My class didn't even have class...) The school was almost as bad as in the original Footloose movie. No rock music, etc.
