iVillage: The Best Prom Songs of the '80s, '90s and '00s

1980s: 'The Lady in Red' -- Chris de Burgh

"The Lady in Red" was a romantic enough track when Chris de Burgh released it in 1986, but seeing Melanie Griffith and Alec Baldwin dance along to it in 1988's "Working Girl" really solidified it as a great love song perfect for prom. When de Burgh sings, "The lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek/There's nobody here, it's just you and me/It's where I want to be/But I hardly know this beauty by my side/I'll never forget the way you look tonight," it's extra romantic to know that he's singing about his wife, Diane.
