Our Playlist: Top 10 Graduation Songs
1. Graduation (Friends Forever) by Vitamin C
Okay, so maybe this is the most cliché graduation song ever, but every graduate needs to sing this with his or her friends. Once you get to the chorus you will not regret listening to this classic grad jam.
2. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper
This has been an anthem for young women everywhere since its release and it’s the perfect song to sing along to! As scary as this transition can be remember that you are going to have so much fun on this new adventure!
3. I’ve had the Time of my Life-Bill Medly and Jennifer Warnes
Maybe this is a little old school (okay a lot old school) but it worked in Dirty Dancing so it’s must work for you too! Plus you know all the words, and face it; you had the time of your life!
4. Miles Apart by Yellowcard
Let this take you back to your younger school days when you knew how totally punk rock it was to be in love. There’s nothing wrong with a little reminiscing while you celebrate your future!
5. September by Daughtry
I dare you to listen to these lyrics and not cry. This song is so relevant to what every graduate feels, “years go by and time just seems to fly, but the memories remain”. This song may be sad when you sing the lyrics, but it’s always fun to rock out to.
6. Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield
What’s more perfect than the theme song to The Hills to relate to? If Lauren Conrad can get through the tough times of graduating, so can you! Plus, be optimistic about this change, today is where your book begins, the rest is still unwritten.
7. Easy Love by Sigala
The most classic school song ever has got to be ABC 123 by Jackson Five. Easy love remixes that into a fun dance song you will not be able to sit still to giving it all the qualities to a great graduation, party song.
9. The Climb
What’s a list of songs without your childhood pop star Miley Cyrus? This song reflects on life in general and reminds us it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey there. Thanks for the reminder Miley!

Fast car has summer vibes written all over it. It will make the class of 2016 want to all travel down to the beach together; And now that your graduates, you can take your fast car on a celebratory road trip.
