All around Ireland today, thousands of students are receiving their Junior Cert results which can only mean one thing for the rest of us - we all feel ancient.

Every September the dance floors of GAA clubs and community centres around the country are filled with jubilant, or not so jubilant, teens putting their exam stress to one side for the night.

But what were you dancing to the night you found out if you fecked up geography or completely aced the Irish listening test? Allow us to refresh your memories....

If you did the JC as far back as 1995, for example, top of the Irish charts was Country House by Blur...

The 2001 heads were getting down to Let Me Blow Ya Mind by Gwen Stefani and Eve...

While those in 2005 were having a Bad Day with Daniel Powter...
