Prom is Friday, April 20! The theme is Night at a Crystal Gala, and here is a music playlist that juniors and seniors are hoping to hear!

Many students were indifferent to hear about prom. However, there were few unique requests that contrasted the theme.

“I would like some 2000s pop hits,” senior Anthony Rojas said. “Like the Black Eyed Peas or something, and it’s nostalgic.”

Songs like “I Gotta Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas and “Don’t Stop the Music” by Rihanna are great songs to dance to, especially at prom.

Seniors Fatima Hernandez and Heyddy Piaz suggested Hispanic/Latino music.

“I feel like that could bring something out,” Piaz said. “It’s what we normally dance to at parties.”

Since almost half of our student body is Hispanic, this type of music at prom would appeal to many. Songs like “Payaso de Rodeo” by Caballo Dorado are included in the Spotify playlist.

The many juniors and seniors who are indifferent to the music playing at prom will hopefully enjoy this giant mixing pot of music! Enjoy prom, juniors and seniors!
