Those who are seventeen are Juniors or Seniors in high school. They are about to embark on life after high school and many will get their first job. 17 year-olds are planning for the future and trying to decide who they really want to be after school is out. In celebration, we created a list of 17 songs. However, it is better than just having a list of 17 songs but each song has the word 17 in the song title.
But what about the number 17? Well, the current NASCAR driver with car number 17 is Ricky Stenhouse Jr. The drivers with the most NASCAR wins with car number 17 are David Pearson (30) and Matt Kenseth (24).
Other 17 references include magazine Seventeen for teens. Psalm 17 is a prayer of David. Quoted, “Hear me, Lord, my plea is just; listen to my cry. Hear my prayer – it does not rise from deceitful lips”. The 17th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: Direct Election of U.S. Senators. The 17th century incorporates the dates from January 1, 1601 to December 31, 1700. The 17th President of the United States was Andrew Johnson.
