Pomp and Circumstance

I know that I already wrote a graduation-esque blog, but this one is going to be different. We all know how graduation ceremonies go–the class comes in to Pomp & Circumstance, they’re seated, there’s a couple speakers, the kids get their diplomas, and then they walk out–usually to a song of the class’ choosing. At least that’s how it was when I graduated. Now this song the class chooses–it could very well end up being a song those people remember forever, or they may forget it the moment they walk out the doors of the school. Either way, I’ve come up with seven kick ass graduation songs. I’d planned on doing five, but I just couldn’t make any cuts from this list.

7. Mountains by Lonestar
Best Lyric in the Song: When you can’t lean on no one else, that’s when you find yourself.

6. I Will Remember You by Sarah McLachlan
Best Lyric in the Song:
Once there was a darkness, deep and endless night, you gave me everything you had, oh you gave me light.

5. Friends by Michael W. Smith
Best Lyric in the Song:
Though it’s hard to let you go, in the Father’s hands we know, that a lifetime’s not too long to live as friends.

4. My Wish by Rascal Flatts
Best Lyric in the Song:
I hope you never look back but you never forget, all the ones who love you and the place you left.

3. Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) by Green Day
Best Lyric in the Song:
Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road, time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go.

2. Everybody’s Free to Wear Sunscreen by Baz Luhrmann
Best Lyric in the Song:
Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, and don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours.

1. Here’s to the Night by Eve 6
Best Lyric in the Song:
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.
