Top 5 Graduation Songs

Every year, there is a memorable song that gets chosen to be listened to or sung at graduations.  Whether it is your elementary school, high school, or college graduation, there is always a song that comes to mind when you celebrate that milestone in life.  Here is a list of some of the top graduation songs:

Green DayGood Riddance (Time of your Life)”- This song explains how life is unpredictable, but it’s your life, and it’s what you make of it in the end.  You cannot predict the future, but in the end everything is going to be right.  “It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right,
I hope you had the time of your life…”

Carrie Underwood “Whenever you Remember” - This mellow, subtle song from one of the most popular winners of American Idol definitely brings us back to the past.    You can’t go wrong having a graduation song with the lyrics, “When you look back on times we had, I hope you smile”.

Vitamin C “Graduation (Friends Forever)” – This song has been used plenty of times for graduation celebrations, and for a good reason- this song is extremely catchy!  Once you listen, you won’t be able to get this out of your head.  “As we go on, we remember - All the times we had - And as our lives change, come whatever- We will still be friends forever…”.  This is bringing back so many memories!

Eve 6 “Here’s to the Night”- Have a toast to all the great times you had, and embrace the future and what is to come soon. This song is great for saying goodbye, and then hello to whatever comes soon. “Here's to the nights we felt alive, Here's to the tears you knew you'd cry; Here's to goodbye- Tomorrow's gonna come too soon…”

Kelly Clarkson “A Moment Like This”-  Another American Idol favorite brings us the song that describes this special moment in your life.  You’ve waited a lifetime for a moment like this, and what better way to embrace it than to belt out the lyrics to this song?! “Ohh, I can't believe it's happening to me.  Some people wait a lifetime, for a moment like this..”
