To say goodbye to our teachers or classmates, usually we may create a graduation PowerPoint or graduation video slideshow to conclude our lives with each other and express our sincere emotions.
Here is a collection of really great graduation songs which will be perfect for graduation PowerPoint background music. If you too want to make a PowerPoint or video slideshow, this will be absolutely help to you.
Graduate by Third Eye Blind: Stephan Jenkins' fervent cry of "Can I graduate?"is sure to resonate with those who, in fact, can.
Sing by My Chemical Romance: This song is an anthemic call to raising your voice and being heard even when you face opposition. My Chemical Romance have created a great new song for helping celebrate a point in life in which self-identity is of utmost importance.
How Far We've Come by Matchbox Twenty: Go ahead, Class of 2010, look back with pride. Bask in your accomplishments over a sweet drum-and-acoustic-guitar backbeat. While "I believe the world is coming to an end" isn't necessarily a positive message, at least you graduated.
Firework by Katy Perry: Katy Perry's No 1 smash hit single is a clear call for positive self-esteem. It is a perfect upbeat song for graduation parties and ceremonies.
Good Riddance by Green Day: It never fails to amuse me that the quintessential graduation song was written as one last kiss-off to a bad relationship. Nevertheless, it still stands proudly in the pantheon of overplayed graduation songs.
Can’t Go Back Now by The Weepies: This song by the Weepies was featured in the film Adam. The underlying tone of the words is that moving forward can be scary due to the possibility of being alone. However, the song provides encouragement for the importance of taking those steps.
Closing Time by Semisonic: "Every new beginning comes from some other beginning' end." With that bit of pseudo-existentialism, Semisonic launches you on to the next phase of your lives. Fun fact: The drummer drums and plays the piano at the same time. Aspire to that same multitasking ability.
Don’t Look Back by Boston: Boston's rousing pop-rock anthem from the 1970s is still a powerful song for helping celebrate the "new day breakin'" that is represented by graduation.
Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield: Bless you, Natasha, for reminding us of the limitless opportunities of the future. This might be the most upbeat song of all time, and I'll be damned if it doesn't make you hopeful.
Graduation Song by Vitamin C: Awkward confession time: I cry every time I hear this song. It's the ultimate in clichéd graduation songs, but somehow it still affects each of us. Because "as we go on, we remember all the times we had together. And as our lives change, come whatever, we will still be friends forever."
(Another song with the same name "Graduation Song" by Amy Diamond is perfect,too. It is gentle, sweet and encouraging.)
Graduation Day by The Beach Boys: This Beach Boys song is somewhat rare. However, it is well worth hearing and adding to the mix of songs played at the time of graduation.
Pomp & Circumstance: There's something to be said for literalism. Everyone's favorite march is about to be trotted out once again.
Suddenly I See by KT Tunstall: KT Tunstall wrote this song about a specific person she found inspirational. However, it easily conveys the general importance of mentors and role models in life. Graduation is a perfect time for this reminder.
100 Years by Five For Fighting: Everyone's favorite sappy recounting of times past, with a vaguely sinister undertone reminding us of our own mortality.
Times Like These by Foo Fighters: One of the more palatable overplayed graduation songs. There's something strangely comforting about Dave Grohl's vocals, and between the album and acoustic versions, you've got enough material to last through high school and college! (Grad school is another story.
Wonderwall by Oasis: This song isn't actually about graduating—in fact, I don't know exactly what it's about—but somehow it winds up on every playlist and in every photo montage. After all, you will be my wonderwall, won't you?
