The Top 10 Graduation Songs


Do you remember the song that was playing when you entered the room filled with 1000 of your closest friends on graduation night? Chances are the lyrics of that song are burned into your memory, just like the events of the post-graduation party. Below are the top 10 graduation songs of all time, not so much because of their ability to inspire, but because you just can't get them out of your head.

1. I Hope You Dance by Lee Ann Womack

"I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance, never settle for the path of least resistance"



Do you remember the song that was playing when you entered the room filled with 1000 of your closest friends on graduation night? Chances are the lyrics of that song are burned into your memory, just like the events of the post-graduation party. Below are the top 10 graduation songs of all time, not so much because of their ability to inspire, but because you just can't get them out of your head.

1. I Hope You Dance by Lee Ann Womack

"I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance, never settle for the path of least resistance"

Was this really a unanimous choice amongst the graduation committee? More likely, it was somebody's parent's choice.

2. What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong

"The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky, are also on the faces, of people going by"

Meant to uplift, but can anyone forget how it was used in Good Morning Vietnam?

3. You Raise Me Up by Josh Groban

"You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains"

Just hope it isn't playing at the reunion enough said.

4. We are the Champions by Queen

"We are the champions my friends, and we'll keep on fighting 'til the end"

This song will leave you with new best friends for a few hours at least.

5. Lean On Me by Bill Withers

"Lean on me, when you're not strong, and I'll be your friend, I'll help you carry on"

If only teenage relationships lasted as long as the timelessness of this song.

6. Where Everybody Knows Your Name the Theme from Cheers

"Where everybody knows your name, and they're always glad you came"

When you can't find a job, at least you can always pop into the local tavern and down a few. Those are comforting words for a recent graduate.

7. Imagine by John Lennon

"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one"

This song is sure to draw a few tears on graduation night.

8. Don't You Forget About Me by Simple Minds

"Slow change may pull us apart, when the light gets into your heart"

Leaving high school does tend to break apart even the strongest relationships. But does anyone want to hear this on graduation night?

9. Never say Goodbye by Bon Jovi

"I pass my time with strangers, but this bottle's my only friend"

The friends you have, the girlfriend you have, and the dreams you have, will eventually go down the toilet. On second thought, maybe this one is better suited to the reunion.

10. Who Says You Can't Go Home by Bon Jovi

"Who says you can't go back, been all around the world and as a matter of fact,
there's only one place left I want to go"

Everyone (secretly) loves Bon Jovi and it's nice to know that you can always go home.
