95 Songs of Summer, #94 - "True to Life" (1982)

I finished my last final at Berkeley in mid-June of 1982, on a Thursday afternoon.  I went back to my dorm room, and put Roxy Music's "Avalon" on the stereo.  I had absolutely no idea what I was going to do with my life or what my life would become, but finishing that last final resulted in a state of carefree bliss that has been matched few times since.  And even though it's been more than 30 years now, that feeling comes back when I listen to this song.
