Whether it’s been 10, 20, or (gulp) 30+ years since prom, many of us remember it as one of our first rites of passage, shepherding out the last sequin- and taffeta-filled days of high school with the promise of college, freedom and adulthood. To celebrate the season, we’re airing three days of Prom Radio, from Friday, May 20 to Sunday, May 22, on SiriusXM’s channel 18.

But before we hit the airwaves, our very own Jenny McCarthy and her hubby Donnie Wahlberg hit the streets to reminisce with New Yorkers about the songs that defined their proms. And she did it in the very same dress she wore to her own senior soiree (Ed. Note: Who still fits in their prom dress!?)

From the ’80s classic (I’ve Had) the Time of My Life to Paul Anka’s beloved ’60s ballad Put Your Head on My Shoulder, here are some of the gems people on the street remembered from their wonder years.
