It feels like we just finished the holiday season, but half a year has already gone by and it’s now June. As the school year ends, the class of 2015 will be donning their caps and gowns to receive their diplomas. Rolling Stone put together a list of 20 graduation songs from the last 20 years which makes me wonder what song will be added to the list this year.
Press of Atlantic City says this list, which can be found here, features songs that will bring back memories of younger days. While Green Day, Nickelback, and Drake are memorable, the song that did it for me is Vitamin C’s “Graduation (Friends Forever)”. I was a band geek, so the fact that this song is sung to the melody of Pachebel’s Cannon makes it a favorite of mine that I listen to when thinking of good times with friends.
Whether if you like catchy upbeat songs or something that pulls at the heart strings, there is sure to be a song on this list that will bring back memories. For those who will be graduating this year, what will your song be? Will it be a catchy upbeat tune from Katy Perry that’ll have you pumping up the volume in the car, or will it be an emotional ballad that has you and your friends hugging it out?
