Classic prom songs
 
Save the last dance for me
Take my breath away
Cheesy? Oh yes. Sappy? You bet. As dramatic and downright cringe-inducing as a prom song may seem years later, it is pretty important on that special night. Who can forget who they were dancing with and what they were wearing -- ruffles, sparkles and all -- when the first notes of "At Last" or "Forever Young" crackled across the speakers in that softly lit gym?

Take this slow dance down memory lane with us as we present some of the most classic prom songs ever. XOXO, Boston.com.
